    Comments about HP Designjet Z2100 24" Photo Printer:

    I use this printer in a school district to make posters and banners. The quality is fantastic, the colors so crisp no matter what format you print from. I normally use the heavyweight bond paper to laminate but have used the gloss for when I make posters for our plays and musicals, they come out amazing. I would recommend this printer for anyone that would have a use for it. It is also very efficient on ink usage.
