Hampshire Flag has invested in a Mimaki JFX 200-2513 EX UV LED flatbed printer from CMYUK. The investment coincides with the company’s 40th anniversary and marks a new chapter in its history.

The way we live, work, and engage with the world around us is being significantly reshaped by the global pandemic. From a print industry perspective, the versatility of UV LED technology gives print service providers an edge when it comes to being ready for the demands of the day.

Fujifilm was pleased to support SoulKind at its magazine launch party in Cheltenham last week. The event featured stunning portraits printed on the Acuity Prime and high quality promotional material printed on the Jet Press 750S, while the magazine itself was offset printed using Fujifilm Superia processless plates.

CMYUK has taken delivery of the new EFI VUTEk Pro 30h at its demonstration and training centre in Shrewsbury, giving customers the first viewing of this UV LED hybrid printer in the UK.

Fujifilm today announced that it has partnered with RA Smart to supply the Acuity Prime to customers within the UK. RA Smart, predominantly a textile printing specialist company, is entering its 50th year of business in 2022. Since joining the company as a director and partner earlier this year, Adam Booth set up RA Smart Large Format - a division of the business exclusively supplying large format print equipment. The latest addition to the company's large format product offering is the Acuity Prime.

French printing software company Caldera has announced the support of the Fujifilm Acuity Ultra R2 Series for CalderaRIP. This new driver expands the award-winning software’s long list of supported peripherals for wide-format production.

One of the UK’s largest fabric printers, Northern Flags, is flying the flag with Agfa, having invested in three Avinci fabric-printing engines, an Anapurna roll-to-roll sign & display printer and an Asanti workflow solution for their Leeds facility.

ASTRON group, based in Prague, started as a small studio in 1993. Now, with a 300-strong team, it is a major player in the Central European print market, offering a wide range of products; from magazines and leaflets; to banners, POS, and illuminated and 3D signage. Its customer base covers the public sector, small local businesses, and large national and multinational brands. One area the company highly prides itself on is its high-quality sign making, and in late 2019 it invested in an Onset X3 HS from Fujifilm, with High Five and Dual Flex robotics, to produce exceptional print work in the fastest possible time.

Dizzy Duck Designs has installed a Mimaki UCJV300–160 UV printer and Easymount laminator from CMYUK. The new equipment was purchased to handle current demand and factor in future company growth.

Bath-based branding and signage business Freestyle Designs has been established for 14 years, specialising in a range of services from standard shop signage projects to large rebrands, vehicle graphics, wallcoverings and vinyl graphics, and more. Founder and Managing Director Jayson Godridge loves to keep the business moving forward, whether that’s staying up-to-date with the latest technology and investing in new kit, or targeting larger scale, higher volume work. “We knew we weren’t going to be able to achieve that with our current machinery,” explains Jayson.

Founded in 2007, Paddock Digital Printing BV is a print production company, based in The Netherlands, that specialises in producing indoor and outdoor signage. Though a relatively small company, with just ten employees, all of its products are produced entirely in-house, from start to finish. The company invested in an eight channel Acuity Ultra 5044 in 2020, to future-proof its business and help it to remain competitive.

Printers and resellers across North America are expanding their offerings and keeping ahead of the competition due to a trusted partnership with SinaLite. This leading trade-only printer increased its reseller capabilities by purchasing its second Jeti Tauro H2500 LED hybrid system from Agfa.

Delta Group, founded in 1991, is one of Europe's leading visual communications specialists and brand activation to a range of leading blue-chip clients within the retail, consumer brands and entertainment sectors. The company provides an end-to-end service provision offering creative services, experiential, POS production, fulfilment and distribution and installation. With head offices in Hertfordshire, UK, the company employs over 750 staff across its 4 sites and has an annual turnover of around £90 million. In March 2021, Delta Group installed an Onset X3 HS, and just months on from the investment, they are delighted with the results.

Direct Edge Media, a comprehensive wide format and commercial print service company, is expanding its fleet of printers from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. at its Denver facility with two new EFI™ VUTEk® 5r+ roll-to-roll printers and a VUTEk h5 hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll printer. These equipment additions create an opportunity for the high-volume display graphics facility in Denver to add more speed while reducing costs.

For Wilmot-Budgen, a Surrey-based printer specialising in retail point-of-sale production, outstanding print quality is essential to its customer base of leading High Street brands, so it was important to them to have a robust long-term solution for their business as their wide format printers aged.

French printing software company Caldera has announced the support of the Agfa Anapurna LED Series for CalderaRIP Version 14. These new drivers expand the award-winning software’s long list of supported peripherals for wide-format production.

NUtec Digital Ink is expanding its range of UV-curable inks optimised for LED lamp curing with the addition of the Ruby R20-HYB ink.

Central London-based 24 hour print and graphics provider First Colour has installed the first Canon Arizona UV 135 GT flatbed printer in the UK to facilitate its ambitious wide-format print growth strategy.

Eleven years ago, the company formerly known as Signs Plus Visuals rebranded itself as BrandVizion and invested in an EFI™ VUTEk® UV inkjet superwide-format printer from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. The investment paid off: Business skyrocketed, setting the Washington, D.C., metro area company on a growth track that would lead it to continued expansion offering premium-quality display graphics. Now, on the cusp of new growth opportunities, company Owner John McManus and his team at BrandVizion are embarking on new capabilities and versatility to grow with its latest investment, an EFI VUTEk h5 hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll UV LED superwide-format printer.

The Durst Group announces that Durst and Vanguard have been honored for product excellence and quality once again by PRINTING United Alliance, winning four 2021 Pinnacle Product Awards.
