Here’s a first: solid printer ink that claims to reduce the cost of color printing by up to 62%, when compared to laser color printers. The Xerox ColorQube 9200 series “are said to be like crayons and they are melted and squirted onto pages through four separate print heads.”

The fast spray speed allows the printer to print at 38 ppm up to 85 ppm. Each solid ink cube can print 55,500 pages. The big issue at this point is that the printers start at over $23,000.
