A first for a Cardiff based UK print company
February 3, 2010 by Gareth
Around the middle of last year a printing company in Cardiff was the first in the UK to install a HP Scitex UV flatbed FB7500. The printers, Gardners, produce wide format digital work. If you are looking for stationery printing or business card printing in Cardiff, or have more sophisticated requirements the city can easily satisfy your needs.
The decision to purchase HP’s top of the range kit was based on the ability of the machine to produce very high quality work. The company says that the investment has opened up new opportunities for direct-to-substrate printing.
Managing director Richard Gardner said:
“It does produce very good quality that we couldn’t previously run on our flatbeds, which has allowed us to shift some work that we would previously have produced on our eco-solvent machines, that means that we no longer have to laminate those jobs.”
Shortly after installation the company stated that they were even more impressed by the machine’s performance than they were at the initial demonstration. They were particularly impressed by the effectiveness of the machine’s three-quarter automated loading facility.
The Cardiff printing company is running the new kit alongside their Inca and two NUR Tempo machines. In addition to the new investment they have also upgraded both their pre-press and post-press departments.
There is a good selection of printing companies in Cardiff. Local clients should find it easy to find a printer to satisfy their needs.
