Variety of Improved Media Available for the XES ColorgrafX X2

Xerox Engineering Systems (XES), a leader in wide-format document management solutions, today introduced a variety of new media for the ColorgrafX X2 printer that greatly advance XES's ability to service outdoor printing applications. By adding an assortment of new vinyl's, papers and fabrics to the ColorgrafX X2's printing capabilities, XES has greatly expanded the types of outdoor, as well as indoor, applications print shops can fulfill using this printer, enabling them to offer additional services to their customers and creating new revenue streams.


One of the new media includes an outdoor paper sold exclusively by XES in the U.S. for same day paste and post billboard applications. The outdoor paper is a cost-effective alternative to other outdoor media because it does not require lamination and offers excellent image quality comparable to presentation papers.


"Expanding the types of media available for the ColorgrafX X2 is a great advancement for both XES and our customers," said John Petralia, XES's Vice President and General Manager for Color Solutions. "This move strengthens our ability to produce higher quality outdoor graphics without raising the costs of media, translating into new revenue streams for our customers."
