LexJet Delivers Seamless Plug-and-Play HP 5000/5500 UV Ink Choice

Monday, September 4, 2006
Building on its proven success of providing economical, plug-and-play ink-replacement solutions for its customers, LexJet introduces LexJet UV Ink Replacement Cartridges for HP 5000/5500 printers.

“Unlike typical third-party ink products, LexJet UV ink for the HP 5000/5500 allows users to mix, match, and print. There’s no need to purge the lines or change your system in any way,” explains John Lane, LexJet’s vice president. “We’ve completed months of extensive testing through independent labs and at LexJet to ensure the colors are right on target every time, whether you’re using a combination of HP and LexJet UV ink cartridges, or just LexJet ink. Either way, our customers get an identical match.”

In addition to significant savings (up to 44 percent), LexJet inks have an identical ICC profile to HP 5000/5500 inks, providing an exact color gamut and total media compatibility. There is no color shift, no conversion cost, and no downtime when swapping out inks.

“LexJet customers who have been using our dye-ink replacement solution for their 5000/5500 printers have been requesting a UV-ink alternative,” says Camillia Mankovich, LexJet’s marketing director. “We wanted to make absolutely sure that our ink-replacement product would meet the stringent criteria required for such color-critical products. LexJet UV Ink has met and exceeded those requirements, and we’re ready to meet customer demand now.”

As with LexJet Dye Ink, LexJet UV Ink will be delivered to customers in remanufactured ink cartridges. Users can recycle their cartridges at LexJet for a $5 credit per cartridge. Additionally, using LexJet ink will not void the HP warranty or service agreement.
