Signs Express (Birmingham SW) has recently invested in a HP L25500 Latex printer and Easymount Laminator and these latest additions are feeling right at home in their brand new purpose-built print and design studio; a fantastic new addition to the Bromsgrove signage centre.
This award winning wide format printer uses environmentally friendly solvent free durable Latex inks helping Signs Express to meet their local councils ISO requirements. The printer is supported by the new Easymount Laminator, covering prints with a protective layer providing a 5 year outdoor durability guarantee. Printing materials used on this new machine are wide ranging with an improved print technology specifically for vehicle wrapping applications.
“Being a low energy use machine the L25500 offers strong green credentials and it allows us to be at the forefront of digital technology,” said Joe Smith, Managing Director at Signs Express (Birmingham SW). “We are delighted with the results from the new HP Latex and it has been extremely beneficial from an operational point of view, principally as there is no need to ventilate the printer meaning positioning of it in our new design and print studio was therefore far less problematic than other machinery and creates a much nicer environment for our staff to work in without the solvent smells.”
Apart from the environmental benefits inherent in the printer’s capabilities, Signs Express (Birmingham SW) has been quick to appreciate the huge savings in production time that are possible with the L25500. Joe Smith added: “There is now no need for out-gassing of the printed materials before lamination and this is particularly helpful when production schedules are full or we have a rush job needing completion. Work can now be undertaken more quickly and easily with this printer.” Joe and his team are able to plan a higher work load and so have a faster client reaction time putting them ahead of their nearest competitors.
Signs Express will really be putting the new printer through it paces, using it to print on a diverse range of materials including; vinyl, poster paper, canvas, wall paper, one-way vision film and banners.
The production centre based on Saxon Business Park, Bromsgrove provides a complete design, manufacture and installation service for all types of signage, anything from interior and exterior signs to vehicle graphics, banners, window graphics and exhibition display systems.
