BioMedia still available from QPS
Quality Print Services (QPS) has reassured its customers in the sign and display sectors that it remains a distributor of BioMedia recyclable display films, despite manufacturer Ilford Imaging’s decision to stop production at its Swiss factory.
Ilford Imaging Switzerland hit financial difficulties last year and declared its insolvency in December. However, QPS has stock to sell and will continue to supply BioMedia for the foreseeable future and at the same price point as non-recyclable materials.
Chris Bailey, Director of QPS said: “It’s sad that Ilford Imaging has become another financial casualty in our industry, especially as we believe its eco-friendly substrate BioMedia has such great potential to improve the sustainability of sign and display businesses.”
“However, fortunately we invested in a large quantity of stock from the BioMedia range ahead of Ilford’s difficulties and are thus able to meet immediate demand from our customers, at a price that will help them meet sustainability targets, such as ISO 14001 certification, without being at a financial disadvantage.”
BioMedia, winner of the SGIA Product of the Year award in 2011, is both fully recyclable and biodegradable and can be incinerated for energy production without releasing harmful gases or chemicals.
The range, available from QPS in a selection of thicknesses and/or widths, includes matte-finish BioMedia Display Film and BioMedia Display Film UV and offers an alternative to traditional substrates for pop-ups, banners, indoor and outdoor poster displays and exhibition graphics.
