Epson and Summa nail it for Sign Here

Epson and Summa nail it for Sign Here
Worcester’s Sign Here struggled to match a vibrant shade of orange for a vehicle wrap, until it invested in a new Epson SureColor S80600 from reseller SEDO.

Sign Here is a full spectrum sign specialist covering every facet of print and design. Since its launch in 2001, it has grown to become one of the leading sign manufacturers in Worcestershire, with a work ethic that has earned it a growing list of customers nationwide.

“At Sign Here we have always pursued a ‘can do’ philosophy: whatever the project, we can do it,” explained the company’s owner Kevin Mahoney, “We can match any print and design requirement from vehicle graphics to specialist retail and healthcare signage, embroidery and printed clothing to business cards. Whatever our customers’ need, we can do it.”

However, when Kevin and his team were commissioned for a tricky vehicle wrap project, Sign Here’s wide-format printers fell short.

Kevin continued: “We took on a catering vehicle wrap that required a graphic featuring a really vibrant orange with burgundy overlay and our existing printers just couldn’t match the brief. It was time to update the system. I talked to some people, and that was when I heard about the Epson S-Series S80600.”

The Epson SureColor S80600 eco-solvent printer is renowned for its reliability, image durability, precision sharpness and colour fidelity. It thus meets the exacting needs of professional sign makers, printers and designers, as well as those operating in the photographic and fine art sectors. Its extensive colour gamut, including orange, red, light cyan, light magenta and light black alongside high-quality CMYK, allows users to match 98 percent of the Pantone range. Not only did Sign Here’s new SureColor S80600 print the required vivid orange, but it also hit the kind of greys that once gave Kevin a headache.

In addition to the new printer, supplied with ONYX RIP software, Sign Here invested in a Summa S class 1600 cutter. Kevin enthused: “The system’s ability to print and cut is seamless. Jobs that used to take up to an hour are now completed in 15 minutes and when it came to colour, the Epson nailed it. I’ve used a Summa cutter for years, but this is a bigger version of the one we already own. They are bulletproof machines with reliable technology and when used together they have future-proofed our business.”

Sign Here sourced the new machines through Basildon-based SEDO, again through recommendation. Kevin confided: “We approached a few resellers but Andy McGuinness and his team at SEDO seemed keen to make sure we got what we needed and Andy was great, really helpful.”

SEDO’s Managing Director Andy McGuiness commented: “We work with the leading large format manufacturers and take a holistic approach to all our customers’ needs, including printers, consumables and finishing. Our team of advisers can offer over 70 years’ of combined experience to any print problem.

“Sign Here’s very specific requirement for the depth of colour, and speedier production, made the SC-S80600 an obvious choice. It uses Dual PrecisionCore TFP printheads and UltraChrome GS3 inks for more vibrant colours, and print can be displayed outdoors for up to three years without fading, which makes it perfect for a vehicle wrap. It was a pleasure to work with Kev and his team.”

Kevin Mahoney concluded: “We evolved our service portfolio to meet our customers’ changing needs, and, as we have invested in new technology, we only source the best. Our clients aren’t interested in how we do the job, they just want to see the best possible outcome, delivered on time, every after time.”
