New materials, printing techniques and technologies allow the signage industry to constantly evolve as the demand for greater impact and differentiation increases. AllSigns Visual Communications Limited works with brand owners, agencies, architects and designers to translate their visions into impactful brand profiles.

Signage and wayfinding solutions experts, Reade Signs, has recently installed a new EFI Vutek LX3 – one of only eleven in the UK, supplied by CMYUK. The company has seen steady growth over the last three years, with the business growing by 20% year-on-year since 2015. This has been achieved by selling into more diverse markets, including architectural and wayfinding signage, whilst maintaining excellent client retention in existing markets.

When ColorDynamics decided to add wide-format printing to its repertoire last year, the Allen, Texas-based commercial printing company acquired Superior Graphics, an established signage and graphics provider in Dallas. ColorDynamics also hired John Ehrenberger – a veteran wide-format graphics executive and the son of Superior’s founder – as an executive vice president. Looking to further accelerate ColorDynamics’ move into signage and graphics, Ehrenberger hit the industry trade shows to evaluate new equipment and purchased an EFI™ VUTEk® 3r LED roll-to-roll printer from EFI.

AlphaGraphics (AG) is Seattle’s go-to print services provider. The team recently completed a series of interior wall graphics for architecture firm KPG. AG representatives explain, “KPG is an interdisciplinary design firm. They have an expert team of architects, engineers, urban designers, and construction professionals. So it’s fair to say that they understand the importance of visual aesthetics in the workplace.”

Fantasy Prints, certified ISO9001 in October 2017, is well known in Edinburgh, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders for providing complete printing and signage solutions.

The world's first EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® 340i soft signage printer, which coincidentally is also the 100th VUTEk FabriVU aqueous soft-signage printer to be sold, has been ordered by CoverUp in Dublin, Republic of Ireland. Delivery is scheduled for the end of May, two weeks after the printer's debut at the FESPA exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

EFI have reported that Beerse, Belgium-based Dacar Digital Printing has installed the 100th superwide-format LED roll-to-roll printer in the EFI™ VUTEk® 3r/5r LED roll-to-roll superwide-format line. Dacar chose a new 5-metre-wide VUTEk 5r model printer because of features that help boost users' commercial success while reducing costs, such as low energy consumption, high resolution and speed, and its value-added accessories.

EFI continues to revolutionise the future of printing by introducing new technologies at this year's FESPA Global Expo in Berlin. At hall 2.2, stand B30, EFI™ will unveil its next-generation hybrid flatbed/roll platform technology - the EFI VUTEk® h series printers built from the ground up to offer higher quality, more capabilities and better productivity up to 109 boards per hour.

Reeling from a successful Sign and Digital UK show last month, Soyang Europe understands the importance of a well designed and created exhibition stand. Working alongside international artist, Emily Campbell of Blue Butterfly Flooring and specialist print suppliers to the events industry, Hollywood Monster, its Sign and Digital stand showcased the power of printed flooring as it continues to promote the use of innovative print materials.

EFI have announced the first installation of the EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® 520 printer in Germany, at Neu-Ulm-based Iraci visuelle Medien GmbH. The new printer is the company's third 5-metre EFI VUTEk device. Iraci visuelle Medien also prints textiles on a pair of VUTEk UV-cure, roll-to-roll printers, but with the new VUTEk FabriVU, the company can efficiently produce growing volumes of textile soft signage using the printer's high-quality, aqueous dispersed dye-sublimation printing.

At this year's FESPA Global Print Expo (May 15-18 in Berlin) Electronics For Imaging (EFI) will unveil its new fabric soft signage printer with in-line sublimation, the EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® 340i. This advanced, aqueous dispersed dye-sublimation printer features a new platen and extraction system that enables in-line heat press sublimation directly from the printer.
