5 Cost-saving ideas for Large Format Printers
In today’s print environment, keeping an eye on production costs has never been more critical. HP PageWide Technology can help. Here are five tips to share with your customers to help them with cost efficiency:
1. Preview & draft modes
Be relentless in previewing work to avoid costly mistakes. Workflow automation software allows printers to identify errors before final printing, which can reduce costs by as much as 40%.*
2. Print faster 
HP PageWide Technology allows businesses to reach new levels of performance and productivity with its breakthrough printing speeds. 
3. Use less ink*
HP PageWide XL’s innovative print heads require a low level of pigment to print a page. The popular HP 20-lb Bond with ColorPRO Technology, 3-in Core has been tested and proven to produce up to 30% more color with up to 30% less ink*.
4. Save on energy
Super-efficient HP PageWide XL printers use up to 84% less energy than laser printers* because there is no fuser element to heat and fewer moving parts.
5. Choose more cost-effective, versatile media
HP PageWide XL printers are not just for technical documents. Users can print mixed outputs of CAD drawings, GIS maps, double-sided posters, and displays two to three times faster while saving on ink and environmental costs—prints are recyclable* and FSC®-certified (C115319)*.

PageWide allows your customers to print faster, with less energy, reduced environmental impact, and less cost. Check out our full portfolio of media products made for HP PageWide XL printers, including banners, bond, adhesive vinyl, and more.

Acclaimed Photographer Exhibits on HP Photo Paper for Europe's Travel Show

See the world in a day

Vakantiebeurs is one of the largest travel events in Europe, where you can see the world in a day. For the past 50 years, over 100,000 visitors have come to this international travel show to gain inspiration, discover new destinations, and find their next adventure.

Vakantiebeurs is the perfect place to showcase an exhibition of wildlife photographer Wim van Passel's stunning photos from his travels to the world's most remote and unspoiled areas. From the earth's driest desert to Iceland's landscape of fire and ice, van Passel has photographed the world's wildest environments to promote the conservation of these natural wonders.

HP Premium Instant-dry Gloss Photo Paper

Van Passel trusts printing his exhibition quality prints to HP Premium Instant-dry Gloss Photo Paper, which dries instantly, produces exceptional, long-lasting image quality and helps to meet environmental goals with an FSC®-certification (FSC-C115319). *

"After 125 photographic exhibitions, I trust the quality and consistency of printing on HP Premium Instant-dry Gloss Photo Paper," says Van Passel.

Profitable Niche Market
Fine art exhibitions and tradeshows can be a profitable niche for Print Service Providers and a good source of repeat business with changing displays.

You can see more of van Passel's stunning photos at next year's Vakantiebeurs or on his Timeless Moments website: He donates all his images to World Wildlife Fund (WWF), an international organization devoted to wilderness preservation. He depends on sponsorships to continue his efforts to protect our natural environment.
