How to use a Poster Printer

The Varitronics®  ProImage® XL 3000 Poster Printer is identical to the ProImage Plus 3000 except for roll sizes accepted.   Both machines have the same input quality, same output quality,  same operation and they look the same too.  The main difference between the two printers is the Plus 3000 accepts  only two different roll sizes, 17" & 23" widths while the Xl also accepts 29" and 36" wide rolls.

Output a poster 36 x 48 from an original 8.5 x 11.


An open scanner unit

The scanner unit on top of the printer.  This is where you change your printer's options including output sizes and controls. 


This printer along with the Plus 3000 is the latest technology offered by Varitronics®.  In fact, their Variquest™ Poster Maker 3600 is the XL 3000 (see compare Variquest technical specifications).  The Poster Maker 3600 though uses proprietary poster paper end caps (see Beware of Variquest) which restricts end users from using only paper supplied by Varitronics.  That's only 6 standard poster paper colors all more expensive at $99.95.

The big deal with this printer is its print quality.  Imaging comes in at about 400 dpi which is about double to the ProImage and Plus poster printers.  Its more electronics oriented and repairing it is slightly more costly.

If you're looking for 36" x 48" posters or 3' tall banners and latest technology, this is the printer for you.

Like all the poster printers, the 3000 can operate from a computer as well as a stand alone unit .  As a stand alone machine, simply insert your original into the scanner on top,   press the green button, and your document is automatically fed through and enlarged to poster size within 70 seconds.

Like all the poster printer models, these are direct thermal - one color systems.  Three print heads heat up (see picture 3) and cool down.  the paper itself is coated and reacts to the heat by imaging in colors - typically black or blue. The best part is that there is no toner or ink needed ever.  Just poster paper. (see picture 4)

All refurbished poster printers are cleaned, lubricated and adjusted.  Any parts damaged or not working properly are replaced.  Each refurbished printer will come with a 6 month warranty that covers the unit from top to bottom.  When you receive your printer, it should be working as if it  was new and last for a number of years without any problems.

We've been selling refurbished poster printers for over 9 years and have gotten a lot of referrals.  If you think we're just fooling around, please select this link listing a small sample of  our customers.  Every  customer listed has purchased one or more of our refurbished poster printers.  Some school districts have purchased as many as three poster printers from us Vs. just one new unit from Varitronics® for just about the same cost.

Each poster printer comes with 6 month warranty and FREE phone support for as long as you own your machine!  We do offer additional 6 moth warranties for a total 1 year.  Ask about our extended warranties.
