We are now pleased to be able to offer our clients a more environmentally friendly print option when it comes to photo murals and printed wallpapers. Printed Space have invested in HP's new water based Latex ink technology so now the majority of our wall coverings, photo roller blinds and large canvas art prints have stopped being manufactured with solvent based inks. Latex inks produce prints with the quality and durability of eco-solvent and low-solvent ink technologies but they're water based inks, so you get the application versatility, without the hassle associated with the environmental, health, and safety considerations of solvent-based inks.
The new printer has enabled us to print onto a flame retardant PVC Free wallpaper so we can offer an odorless photographic wallpaper that meets GREENGUARD and AgBB criteria for schools, hospitals, restaurants, cafes, office environments and children's rooms - with an indoor display permanence of up to 20 years. The wallcovering can be easily removed from the wall when finished with and HP will even collect it to be recycled! See our wallpaper pages for more details
Designed to reduce the impact of printing on the environment, HP Latex Inks produce odorless prints that allow placement in point-of-purchase environments where odor is a concern. The new printer has benefited our environment in the Printed Space print shop too as HP Latex Inks are non-flammable and non-combustible, do not require hazard warning labels, and contain no hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Additionally, no special ventilation equipment or external dryer is required and the HP Designjet Printer features the ENERGY STAR® rating, which demonstrates compliance with strict energy-efficiency guidelines.
