“HP PageWide printers have exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and speed and have enabled us to be more productive in the way we work,” said Tim Larson, design principal, Downstream. “We operate in a demanding environment and are in the business of visual design so how things look on paper is important — HP is keeping up with us.”
The new HP PageWide business portfolio will be available through channel partners and at select retail stores.
