Some of the world’s most advanced printing technology has helped bring priceless art to the streets. Life-size reproductions of masterpieces from the likes of Constable and Da Vinci have been unveiled across central London. Hewlett Packard used new technology in its DesignJet 10000 printer when creating the display of the National Gallery’s Grand Tour. The process involves printing on a new vinyl called Epiflex. HP says when combined with a waterproof laminate, the vinyl will stop colours fading for three years.
