We still offer support and repair for the Fujfilm 3000 series of poster printers including the ProImage® Plus 3000 ProImage® XL 3000 poster printers.
The Fujifilm Plus 3000 poster printer accepts both 17″ and 23″ wide rolls. The Xl 3000, accepts 17, 23″, 29″ & 36″ rolls. Like all the poster printers, these are direct thermal or one color systems. Repair is available for all ProImage® series machines.
How they operate: Three print heads heat up and cool down. The paper is coated with a heat sensitive coating and reacts to the heat by imaging or printing in a color – typically black or blue on a background. The best part of the printers is that – there is only one consumable- paper! No toner or ink is ever needed. This keeps costs extremely low and operations are fast & easy. Thermal printers are considered on demand printers. All it takes is just about 70 seconds to create a 23″ x 310″ sign or display no matter how much black or blue or background color you use.
Each printer has a built in scanner on top. Simply create an original 8 ½” x 11” document – one color, full color, even photographs – place it into the scanner and within about 70 seconds or less it is fed through and enlarged to a 23” x 31” output working with a 23” roll. All poster printer models work only as a standalone unit. It is limited by the width of the document you’re inserting (8 1/2″) but not by the length. An 8 1/2″ x 11″ document equates to 23″ wide by about 31″ long. If you tape two documents together end to end, 8 1/2″ x 22″, our new output would be 23″ by about 62″ long. So not only can you create posters, but banners too.
Need Poster Paper? Bright White is one of 2 in the world that manufacturers poster paper rolls for all Varitronics®, VariQuest® and Fujfilm® poster printers and poster makers. Select this link to get discounted prices and choose from over 30 different colors.
Easy to Use: All versions of the poster printer offers manual selections on the top control panel enabling end users to select multiple sizes including smaller and larger widths than the paper roll inside. With smaller sizes such as a 17” x 22” poster using a 23” wide roll, the printer would provide a trim mark along the side. With larger size posters, the machine would require a document to be scanned twice, printing a left and right side. When it was done, simply tape the two together.
So when you’re figuring your costs, remember, with inkjet printers you have the cost of the ink, the cost of various grades of paper quality, and depending on the quality of image you are printing, the cost to length of time to print your posters. With a poster printer, the cost to produce your posters doesn’t change because there is no ink or toner, just paper. So it does not matter how much background color you use, or how much black or blue, it still costs the same to make. Try that with inkjet!
What’s great about all the poster printer models including the ProImage® 3000 printers? In our opinion is there simplicity. Not only are they easy to operate, but if there are problems, our technicians at Bright White Paper Co can usually diagnosis it by phone and instruct an end user how to fix it. If not, we can provide a quick estimate on the cost to fix it.
