Fastsigns in Kingston Upon Thames, provides a comprehensive range of signs and graphics for customers in Surrey and prides itself on being able to rise to any visual communications challenge.

Mark Phelps, the company’s Managing Director, explained: “We have our own in-house design team, and can provide a creative solution for every application, including corporate branding, safety signage and brand promotion, but nowadays, creativity has to be combined with speed and quality too.”

Aware that to continue to achieve this aimFastsigns, Kingston upon Thames would need to invest in the latest printing technology, Mark visited an open day at print experts CMYUK and was so impressed with the performance of EFI’s H1625 LED wide format printer that he immediately purchased both the machine and a cutting table.

The H1625 handles both rigid and flexible materials up to 165cm wide and up to two inches thick, while the wide format LED technology effectively lowers running costs.

Mark continued: “At the open day, I was able to see a demonstration of the H1625 using my own files and materials and I knew then that it was the right choice.Since the machine has been installed it has radically changed the way we work, day to day, while also dramatically cutting costs and reducing production time.  We can now print directly onto foamex and Dibond and can produce point of sale material and double-sided window graphics much more competitively, thus giving us a real edge over our competitors.


Double-sided graphics for the retail sector have become an increasingly popular request

“Furthermore, since our capabilities now far outstrip those of our rivals in our local area, we have a great advantage when tendering for new work – we’re able to provide the right solution every time!”

Robin East, Group Director at CMYUK commented: “The H1625is the perfect printer for Fastsigns as it can print direct to substrate, facilitates the colour-white-colour printing and reduces ink costs. It’s a great investment and the results have been fantastic.”
