PrintBig, a design and print business, based in Headcorn near Ashford, has become the latest advocate of the Agfa brand. Early July it installed its first ever Agfa engine, a new Anapurna H3200i LED press run by the Agfa Asanti workflow solution. The new engine has effectively replaced three machines for the business allowing them to print wider and faster according to PrintBig’s MD Paul Smith.
Following the installation of our new wide-format hybrid Agfa Anapurna printer, we can now deliver an even wider range of print and signage solutions.
