Kicking Off the New Year with New Technology!

Collins Visual Media Celebrates the Arrival of a New Latex Printer

Collins Visual Media, located in the foothills just behind Burbank, has become one of the top design firms in all of Los Angeles, specializing in everything from large-format prints and vehicle wraps, to custom signage and hero props. And now, the team at Collins Visual Media announces their latest addition to the design family: a state-of-the-art Hewlett Packard Latex Printer. This latex industrial printer outputs seamlessly up to 126" wide and compliments their other printers with a broader range of materials and fabric options.

Capable of producing equally impressive results in a fraction of the time compared to other printers, the HP LX850 is also helping to cut down the cost of wasted material by printing more accurate results the first time around. In addition to conserving materials used, the printer also uses water-based latex ink, which requires no special ventilation and uses recycled printhead cartridges.

"In this day and age, we need to help minimize environmental impact in as many ways as we can," says Cody Goetz, a representative of Collins Visual Media. "This printer allows just that. Since its installation, our team has noticed a 45% decrease in material waste. We believe that being environmentally conscious isn't just the latest trend…it's our duty as human beings."

The HP LX850 is capable of printing a variety of products, including posters, wall coverings, indoor and outdoor event banners, vehicle wraps, and countless more. Its unique, double-sided print feature also allows for accurate double-sided printing without the need to flip the material once side A has been completed.

For 2016, Collins Visual Media looks forward to putting the new printer to work at full capacity. With over 30 years experience in the business, Collins Visual Media is accustomed to turning around rush orders of any size in a timely manner and can deliver projects quickly regardless of complexity or demand.
