Epson Enters Outdoor Sign Printing Market with Stylus Pro GS6000

Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 Wide Format Sign Printer

The Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 is a big wide printer for industrial use. It marks Epson’s entry into the outdoor commercial printing industry offering 64-inch wide roll-to-roll printing for the professional sign-making market.

The new wide format printer features Epson’s UltraChrome GS ink, a new solvent-based ink technology with eight individual colors, including an all new orange and green. Epson says the Stylus Pro GS6000 produces the industry’s widest color gamut for unparalleled output quality on nearly any solvent-based media.

The printer’s new Dual-Array MicroPiezo AMC print head has been specially designed for the demands of high-production solvent printing, according to Epson.

The Stylus Pro GS6000 is also the fastest 64-inch wide roll-to-roll printer in its class, with print speeds of up to 340 sq. ft. per hour for banner-quality printing, up to 180 sq. ft. per hour for everyday production and up to 91 sq. ft. for photographic signage output, the company said.

The Stylus Pro GS6000 will be available in July 2008 through authorized resellers for $28,995 (MSRP).
