Mosaica Group to Sell Xerox’s New Wide Format Inkjet Printer

The Mosaica Group, a graphic arts distributor serving companies throughout the Midwest, announced today that it has rights to sell the new Xerox Wide 
Format IJP 2000 in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

“We’ve recognized that many of our customers’ print requests are changing, as well as the speed at which those requests need to be met,” said Randy 
Peters, President and CEO of The Mosaica Group. “By offering this impressive new machine, we can help our customers make a big impression with 
big prints. Achieving fast, consistent wide format printing with greater frequency will be easier than ever.”

Now, customers looking to trim hours off of their wide format runs will benefit from the IJP 2000. The printer has five fixed print heads that simultaneously 
jet five inks in CMYK color, producing more vibrant images in a single pass. The machine uses the most advanced ink technology available for high-
speed printing. 

With the IJP 2000’s printing speeds, customers can print a 42 inch by 36 inch poster in less than six seconds –at 1600 by 1600 dpi resolution. A wide 
format job that used to take up to five hours on multi-pass inkjet printers can now be completed in just five minutes.

Every aspect of the machine’s design is geared toward keeping printers productive and profitable. It also features two-liter ink tanks to keep jobs running 
longer. A four-roll capacity allows runs of up to 2,000 feet of media on 42-inch-wide rolls – with the ability to print on papers, vinyl, banner fabrics or films. 
Finally, a production-capacity stacker keeps up to 150 printed sheets organized and ready for finishing.

By taking advantage of the industry-leading capabilities of this machine, printers can realize greater opportunity in wide format runs – marking a paradigm 
shift from having to pass up large-format jobs with moderate to large runs that didn’t fit easily into their production schedule.
