ChromaLuxe photographic prints and metal panels made easy with SureColor printer

August 13, 2015

Slough based Kili Arts has installed an Epson SureColor SC-F6000 44-inch digital dye sublimation printer and a Sefa 1510 heat press to produce its new range of high quality ChromaLuxe photographic prints and metal panels.

Specialising in bespoke large format printing and framing, produces acrylic and canvas prints, Gicleé fine art prints, metal HD prints, multi canvasses and collages, and also offers custom-made cut mount, framing and lamination services.

The company has owned an Epson Stylus Pro 9890 44-inch large format printer for two years, which it uses to print its fine art, photographic, canvasses and Giclee prints. This latest SureColor investment has enabled it to expand its product range into metal HD prints, which has resulted in a significant increase in production and overall profit of 60% since installation earlier this year.

Company director Jagdeep Panesar says: “We started off printing small 6 x 4-inch prints at first and sent them out to our clients as gifts. They loved them and were blown away by the colour quality and detail.” Shortly after, the orders started coming in for larger sizes and the business took off.”

The firm has recently been commissioned by local schools to produce new imagery for its healthy eating campaign with images printed onto 60 x 40-inch metal panels using the new SureColor SC-F6000. Jagdeep says: “We took in a few sample panels to show the print quality. When the schools saw the exceptional colour and the sharp detail of the images and realised how long lasting and durable the prints would be, they asked us to replace all the original canvasses which were poor quality and faded.”

Although still early days, Jagdeep is delighted with the new wide format printer: “This investment has opened up a whole new creative market for us - not just new business, it has also enabled us to expand our service offering to our wedding and event photography clients to give them a truly bespoke service. I’m certain we couldn’t have progressed the print business in such a short space of time without the dye sub printer – we wouldn’t be without it.”

With an eye to the future, Kili Arts is looking to expand its service to offer customised textile printing with items such as t-shirts, bags, promotional products and interior décor items, to the consumer and commercial markets.
