For over six years, we’ve helped hundreds of businesses print short-run envelopes faster and more profitably with a single solution: the iJetColor Press (which is now known as the iJetColor Classic). Powered by Memjet technology, the iJetColor outputs at 1/3 of the cost of toner devices and 2x faster, making it the right solution for 900+ printers in North America.
With the increasing demand for inkjet solutions and a widening number of printers transitioning to inkjet from toner or offset, we too needed a wider range of solutions to meet those needs—thus, came the iJetColor NXT and the iJetColor Pro in September 2018.
What’s the difference? Which one will meet your needs? There are two primary components to this decision.
The solutions differ firstly in output speed—the iJetColor Classic prints 1,500-3,700 envelopes/hr, the iJetColor NXT handles 3,600-6,000 envelopes/hr, and the Pro outputs over 7,100 envelopes/hr—so each will best handle a certain monthly volume. The iJetColor Classic is typically best for 20,000-50,000 envelopes each month, the NXT for 50,000-100,000, and the Pro for monthly volumes of 100,000+.
The right solution for you will also depend on the size of media you need to print. The Classic can feed up to 9.5 inches wide and up to 430gsm/160lb stock thickness. The NXT feeds up to 10.5 inches wide and 3/8 inches thick, while the Pro feeds up to 12 or even 14 inches wide (depending on the bundled feeder) and up to 1” thick.
The combination of these variables will help determine which iJetColor inkjet envelope solution is best for your needs. In any case, you’ll have the fastest and most profitable print solution.
