Can I print on leather with the R2000?

#2 HP-Sonia 4 years ago

The HP Latex inks can bind to real leather, preserving its touch and smell while delivering very nice images.

However, the results depend greatly on the type of leather used and the expected durability of the prints.

Moreover, most leather hides are not completely flat, so there is some risk of head-crashes.

We encourage you to do some test before printing final job and to check the requirements for the final application you are willing to do with an HP technician.

I hope this information helps.
