Going green is easy!

Going green is easy!


For any sign or print company still questioning whether or not it’s worth going green, the answer from sign and display specialist Colorset is a resounding ‘Yes!’  

The company, which was originally founded in 2002 and now operates from branches in London and Nottingham, recently purchased four wide format HP LX260 printers from CWE Solutions, and can thus offer its clients, who operate within the retail, museum, sport and leisure, exhibition and events and interiors sectors, more environmentally friendly graphics.

Colorset Director Tom Phelan explained: “We are keenly aware of our duties and responsibilities and aim to supply the best print solution for our clients, whilst also keeping a firm grip on the environmental impact we are making, which is why we finally decided to invest in the HP LX260.”

The four new printers, two of which are now operating in Nottingham and two in London, were installed last October and, at the same time, Colorset took the opportunity to add three new vans to its fleet of four and also increased the number of dedicated installers to 13.

Tom commented: “Not many companies have their own dedicated team of installers, but we feel this enables us to maintain a reliable and quality controlled service.  It also helps that both of our facilities have the same level of production resources, since more and more, our clients, particularly those operating within the retail sector, expect their graphics to look precisely the same the world over.   The Nottingham branch serves everywhere north of Birmingham, whilst the London branch looks after the rest of the country and, in addition, we work with customers in the Republic of Ireland, Holland, Germany, and Spain, and have also recently taken on installations in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York too!”

He concluded: We delayed our purchasing decision until we were absolutely sure that the quality of the output was sufficient to meet the very exacting requirements of our clients, but I’m pleased to report that the printers are now outputting vibrant, durable colour onto a wide range of recyclable media, thus ensuring that the signs and graphics we produce not only look impressive – the majority can now also be recycled at the end of their useful lifespan too”
