HP today announced an agreement with Tesco to roll out HP ML1000D dry lab technology across 140 Tesco Extra stores beginning in April.
The expansion of the companies' photo business relationship will allow all Tesco customers to access HP photo technology in-store and print photographs in a variety of sizes. In addition, customers will be able to print in-store gifts such as posters, photo books and calendars.
The HP ML1000D, one of the most versatile and fastest dry minilab printers on the market today, will be showcased at the PMA tradeshow (Feb. 21-23) at booth 3120. The printer allows for double-sided photo book pages and calendars in one hour while significantly freeing up labor, saving energy, and reducing chemical and water waste.(1)
