Printing company invests £60,000 in latest technology
16th February 2018
A Gloucestershire printing company has invested £60,000 in revolutionary large format printing technology - UVgel. The Canon Océ Colorado 1640 provides the largest leap forward in print technology in years.
The Production Team at Cheltenham-based Bigger Printing have been thoroughly testing the Colorado 1640 over the past eight weeks, testing a large range of materials in order to fine-tune the solutions Bigger Printing will offer to its clients using this process.
In this unique UVgel printing process, liquid ink turns into gel droplets the moment it lands on the media. This prevents the ink dots from merging, or spreading, so the printer can deposit more ink more quickly, drastically reducing printing time. This innovative process also decreases the volume of ink required for prints by up to 40 per cent.
The durable, colourfast technology delivers excellent aesthetics, and a wider colour range than other print processes, creating brighter, vibrant prints, with precise sharp dots.
David Bowen, operations and marketing manager at The Bigger Printing Company, said: "We've been looking forward to having UVgel printing in our production facility since we became aware of the technology - and it certainly hasn't disappointed. We are now able to produce prints on roll media much quicker than before, at a lower cost, with a tougher print solution, producing more vibrant imagery, while being better for the environment! We appreciate that our clients are facing tougher demands on their budgets and deadlines, and UVgel printing is just one step for us to supporting our clients even further."
