Leading Office Products Retailer Adds KODAK ESP All-in-One Printers and Ink to its Home Office Solutions Portfolio
ROCHESTER, NY, and NAPERVILLE, IL, May 28 -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) and OfficeMax® (NYSE:OMX) today announced that OfficeMax is now offering KODAK AiO Inkjet printers and inks, including the new KODAK ESP Office 6150 All-in-One Printer, in nearly 900 retail locations throughout the U.S., as well as through its online store. The agreement marks the first time OfficeMax will carry KODAK AiO Printers, which offer the lowest total ink replacement cost in the industry1.
OfficeMax is currently carrying three models of KODAK AiO Inkjet Printers: the KODAK ESP 5250 Printer, KODAK ESP Office 6150 Printer, and KODAK ESP 7250 Printer. OfficeMax stores now offer the complete Kodak home printing solution, which includes printers, ink, and photo paper.
Highlighting OfficeMax’s new Kodak portfolio is the KODAK ESP Office 6150 AiO Printer, which offers customers wireless, four-in-one flexibility for increased productivity, as well as Kodak’s unique affordable inks. Like all KODAK AiO Printers, the KODAK 6150 Printer uses proprietary high quality pigment inks instead of dye-based ink to provide premium quality and industry-leading image permanence. This means OfficeMax home business customers can print crisp text documents, brilliant graphics, and Kodak’s lab quality photos2 that dry instantly and will last a lifetime3.
The KODAK 6150 Printer also features the latest Wi-Fi b/g/n technology and Ethernet connectivity, which enable effortless connection to both wired and wireless networks in the home office. Through the free KODAK Pic Flick application, users can print images directly from an APPLE iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad to KODAK Wi-Fi enabled printers4.
