Océ Expands Media Line for Solvent-Based Inkjet Printers
Thirteen New Media are now Available for Creating a Wide Variety of Display Graphics
March 26, 2008 – Trumbull, CT – Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery
solutions, today announced a major expansion of the Océ Imaging Supplies solvent inkjet media portfolio with
the addition of thirteen new products. The new solvent portfolio provides upgrades to the Océ solvent specialty
Photo Paper, Backlit Film and Fabric lines, as well as new competitively priced Scrim Banner and Adhesive
Backed Vinyl products. The new solvent media line will be on display in Océ booth #436 at the International Sign
Expo in Orlando FL, March 27-29, 2008.
Premium Photo Satin Paper (PHOTOSAT) – This new product has a bright white, solvent-compatible inkjet receiver
coating with a smooth surface. It is designed to produce photo-quality images with improved color gradients and
image uniformity when using solvent inks. Océ PHOTOSAT is a superior choice for high-resolution photographic
indoor applications intended for up-close viewing. It is compatible with most solvent inkjet printers and inks and
produces a vibrant luster image when printed on the Océ Arizona® 250 GT with UV curable inks. Océ PHOTOSAT
is available in 36-, 54-, and 60-inch wide rolls by 150-foot lengths.
Economy Gloss Paper (PHOTOECO) – This medium is an economic alternative to glossy paper. With a uniform,
treated gloss surface and a hefty 190 grams per square meter (gsm) basis weight, Océ PHOTOECO “photorealistic”
paper will outperform the printed image quality of most uncoated competitive papers. It is designed for signage and
display applications where an economic paper product is desired, but high performance is still essential. Océ
PHOTOECO is available in 54- and 63-inch wide rolls by 165-foot lengths.
Quick Dry Matte Backlit Film (QDBLF) – This polyester-based film dries fast, enabling users to take advantage of their
printers’ automated take up systems for high production print jobs while still providing the maximum image density
required for a backlit application. With Océ QDBLF, substantial ink savings can be realized because high image
density is possible in one-pass printing instead of two or more passes required for some competitive films. Océ QDBLF
is available in widths of 36-, 54-, and 60-inch wide rolls by 150-foot lengths.
Universal Banner Fabric (UBF6) – This 6 mil polyester banner fabric media is ideal for soft signage applications
where heavy ink loads are required. It is an excellent choice for event signage, trade show graphics and decorative
applications. The initial offering is available in 36- and 50-inch widths by 50-foot lengths.
All scrim products are non-fraying and include a uniform weave. These new portfolio items are all competitively
priced, ranging from 19 to 55 cents per square foot based on suggested retail pricing.
Scrim Banner 10 oz. Gloss (SCRIM10G) and Scrim Banner 10 oz. Matte (SCRIM10M) – These two offerings feature
extremely smooth printing surfaces for superior image quality. These versatile scrim banner products can be used

products. The fine weave of the scrim creates an extremely smooth, printable surface. SCRIM13G and SCRIM13M
are available in 38-, 54-, 63- and 84-inch widths by 164-foot lengths.
Block Out Scrim Banner Gloss (SCRIMBOG) and Block Out Scrim Banner Matte (SCRIMBOM) – These heavier 13 oz.
gloss and matte vinyl media include a 100% opaque light-blocking layer to prevent image washout in harsh backlighting
conditions. The fine weave of the scrim creates an extremely smooth, printable surface. Océ SCRIMBOG and Océ
SCRIMBOM are available in of 38- and 54-inch widths by 164-foot lengths.
Double-Sided Printable Scrim (SCRIM2XM) – This is a matte-finished product with a 100% opaque light-blocking layer.
