Cool What is the smallest solvent or eco-solvent ink printer?

I recently attended the "Graphics of the Americas" convention in Miami Beach and noticed that every solvent printer there are huge and cost allot of money.

Does anyone know if there is a smaller desktop size printer that prints solvent and is more affordable?

I want to create cell phone skins and a wide format solvent printer is overkill both in size and price for what I am trying to acheive. Thanks for any info you can provide.

The smallest solvent printer I can think of is the FREEJET 320 - but it is a flatbed printer.
The smalles roll printer would be Roland SP300 or VP300.
oh and Mimaki has a small roll printer... don´t know the name
CJV or something like that.....

Is it possible to convert any of the common A3/4 ink jet printers to accept solvent ink. I think Epsons are out as the ink destroys the heads but don't know about any of the other brands, HP, Cannon, Lexmark etc.

Why not just contract your prints out? If all you are doing is cell phone skins you can probably get them for less than .50 cents a set.
Roland has a small 30" inch printer. But you will still pay over 10 grand on a new one. So for a printer versus the cost just contract print your skins the better ROI would be just to contract them.

Or you could run a smaller Epson with sublimation inks, if the product you're selling is available as sublimatable blanks.

I know this is an old post, but has anyone ever tried to use a Chinese letter size flatbed solvent printer like they use to print CD labels for printing on transfer vinyl? The product description eludes to being able to use paper in them.

If you are still looking a printer , for the last two years I have being using Storm Jet that I bought directly from China. No issues and the print is brilliant. just a fraction of the price of what is sold in the US.

AFAIK, the smallest solvent printer currently available would be the Roland BN20 but at around $7K, it's not cheap...
