2015 I WRAPS I 107 So what does this all mean to you? Well it is very simple. The chart below provides time estimate of what you might expect with each printer as to the time needed to print panels for the following vehicle wraps. Printer Ink Type Ink Cost Speed* LIPM Cost MSRP HP Latex 330 Latex $.21 / 140 sq. ft./hr 6.2 $19,995 HP Latex 360 Latex $.21 184 sq. ft./hr 8.2 $24,000 Mimaki JV150 Eco Solvent $.20 112 sq. ft./hr 5.0 $17,995 Mimaki JV300 Eco Solvent $.20 185 sq. ft./hr 8.2 $25,995 Mutoh ValueJet 1624 Eco Solvent $.19 157 sq. ft./hr 7.0 $18,995 Roland SolJet Pro 4 F-640 Eco Solvent $.20 161 sq. ft./hr 7.0 $16,995 Seiko M-64s Eco Solvent $.18 356 sq. ft./hr 15.8 $42,599 * In all cases to determine print speeds I used a resolution of 720 and 8-pass mode to compare machines. You should definitely run your own tests before purchasing a printer.
