Not using your White Ink for a while? No problem with a Shark...
Just press a button and our printer will empty the line of White Ink and backfill with flush keeping the printer ready for when you need it. 2 hours, days or weeks later, just press the button again, and the printer loads the White Ink. Takes less than a minute!


With 2400 and 1200 dpi high-definition output, the Shark uses grayscale technology to ensure prints have a smooth gradation in skin tones as well as sharp and well saturated solids and text

StratoJet incorporates Accurate Dot Placement (ADP). The ADP integrates the printer controller system to the color management software to assign a specific drop size along the print, allowing the user to print sharp text and vibrant colors with speed

We control every step of our well laid out manufacturing process from how the inks are made, to how they are handled through our printer and carefully produced and selected components and how the inks are applied to the media

13 Colors

Choose a regular or high production stagger color configuration, both provide high-quality and consistent results

Specialty Colors
Adding Specialty colors Red, Green, Orange and Violet expands your color gamut giving extra vibrant colors as well as an application for specific corporate colors

Light Colors
Add Light cyan, magenta and black to produce better spot colors, natural skin tones, subtle gradients and shading

Spot Colors
Choose from single or double white and varnish, with white providing the capability to produce a base layer or highlight-specific path of an image on clear and dark media, and varnish to create an embossed effect or add a matte, satin or gloss finish to your print

Grayscale DoD Piezo

StratoJet Shark Flatbeds use the latest Grayscale Drop on Demand Piezo print heads, known for its high quality, durability and consistent performance, that come with a special circuit board to allow for individually control of pressure, temp and purging

StratoJet's variable drop size, grayscale technology and ADP (Advanced Drop Placement) allows you to print a variable drop size at 5, 10, and 15 picoliters (PL) and overlaying the drops achieving a printing resolution up to 2400 dpi

Printers Like No others...

...and we mean NONE !


Innovative and Robust

To increase reliability, StratoJet uses high-end Servo motors instead of using significantly inexpensive and low consistency DC motors. To ensure fidelity across the print image, particularly when working on tiled applications. StratoJet chooses to use an ink delivery system that 'pulls' the ink with vacuum, instead of the much less efficient positive pressure system, all other printers use. Ever heard of Inks drying in the Heads...?

Remote Tech

We use the highest quality components in our printers and designed ground up with serviceability in mind. If there's an issue, with a password, we log into your printer remotely, then read, evaluate log files and fix issues remotely; yes, remotely! We found the most of service calls are not due to hardware issues. StratoJet starts by training our technicians to be application experts before they become a hardware technician.

More for Less

Our Water Cooled LED Curing Lamps have exceptional long life, and not a consumable part and low-power consumption. The lamps don't need to warm up, need to be be adjusted and instantly cures the ink, while generating low heat, to allow more print applications that are heat sensitive. Depending on the media or printing environment, static can cause quality issues, so to minimize this, an anti-static bar is built into the printer carriage.
