Technology vs knowledge

November 14, 2019

After working for technology companies for the last 35+ years i decided to do it differently this time. I decided that sharing is better than keeping information to yourself. Specially in our printing industry and textile markets, knowledge is kept close to the heart. Just in case the competitor is looking, might steal my idea or whatever reasoning you would like to come up with.

Transforming the famed ballroom at Mayfair’s iconic Claridges hotel into an Italian Palazzo for a Greek couple’s wedding was a piece of cake for special events company Kudos AV.

For the fourth consecutive time, Imaginators has won Best Branding at the Festival Supplier of the Year awards. This adds yet another trophy to its impressive cache of accolades that include multiple wins for Best SME Business of the Year, Best Wide Format and Best Superwide Format Digital Print Company of the Year and several others including IoD Director of the Year for founder and Managing Director Matt Tydeman.

Krit Patel, managing director of Printvision, invested in 3 EFI inkjet printers in the last 18 months to keep up with demand. The two EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340 dye-sublimation printers and the EFI VUTEk LX3 Pro hybrid LED printer allow the company to produce products of superior quality at an impressive speed – while becoming a close partner with EFI.

One of the most exciting things about large format printing is the new technologies and products that are consistently being developed. From new printers and substrates to innovative software, forward thinking print suppliers are regularly rethinking how we design and develop solutions, to ensure our clients always have access to the most cutting edge, exciting installations.

Visitors to the forthcoming PRINTING United event in the USA will have the opportunity to see a range of innovative products from SENFA - in an environment designed to showcase how businesses can beat their competition.

Eighteen months ago, dye sublimation didn’t even register on the dial at Manchester Print Services, the wide-format digital printing company set-up by Lee Egan and Andy Lambert in 2010.
