Blink Print upgrades
The Lutterworth-based full service print company, Blink Print, has upgraded its inkjet output with an investment in an Anapurna M2050i 2.05m six-colour printer.
Over the past four years, since the company first invested in an Agfa Anapurna Mw, the size of its business has almost doubled and it now boasts a turnover approaching £1m. A rebrand two years ago helped to attract further new commissions, as did a well publicised highly commended SME Company of the Year award.
Blink Print offers its customers a complete print service, which includes litho, digital and silkscreen printing, as well as inkjet. In addition, the inkjet department also has a digital cutter, so it really can offer the full print package.
Most of its assignments come from advertising and design agencies, shopfitters and event organisers, and it produces a wide variety of display material for the fashion and cosmetic sectors, plus many well known high street brands. It also provides adverting posters and hoardings for sports stadiums, as well as short-run packaging projects.
Esther Butterfield, a Director at Blink Print explained: “Our previous Anapurna had performed very well, but we needed to increase our inkjet productivity. After reviewing several options, Litho Supplies introduced us to the Anapurna M2050i, which offered both the output speed we needed together with a high level of service and support from Agfa, which has proved to be invaluable.”
A high-speed UV-curable inkjet system that outputs print up to 205cm wide, the Anapurna M2050i, also delivers a white ink option that is ideal when working with dark or coloured substrates, as well as offering top class productivity, with speeds of up to 101 m²/hr.
Building on the success of the Anapurna M2050, the bestselling hybrid printer in its segment, the M2050i features a redesigned electromechanical system and is available at a highly competitive price.
Esther Butterfield concluded: “We have continually invested in the latest technology to provide efficiency as well as quality and this latest acquisition will hopefully help us to attract more new customers and further increase our turnover.”
