The Big Printer
Having a large carriage inkjet printer like Epson’s new SureColor T7270 may seem like a luxury that most districts can’t afford, but it can save on printing expenses and be the centerpiece of fund raising campaigns. Whether it’s to sell parents posters of student athletes, make classroom banners that help with teaching or put digital artwork on paper, the T7270 can pump out printed sheets that are up to 44-inches wide with 2,880 by 1,440 resolution.
It works with a variety of media, from photo paper to hard poster-board and the system uses Epson’s PrecisionCore inkjet technology. The printer has its own imaging chip as well as an optional print server, Postscript engine and a 36-inch wide scanner that can create 600dpi images. With a single media roll, the T7270 sells for $4,995 while the two-roll version costs $6,995 and the scanner adds $4,500.
