Transforming printed media into eye-catching wall décor manifestations will be the central theme of the LION Picture Framing Supplies stand (R36).
On display will be the popular tray profiles rendered in wood and aluminium, as well as simple solutions for canvas displays, such as stretcher frames and profiles.
New additions to the company’s aluminium panel tray range to be demonstrated will be the M430 profile in satin silver and white and the matt black and the AP92 profile in matt silver, white and black.
A touch of magic
TheMagicTouch on Stand F60 will demonstrate two new ‘single-stage’ transfer printing innovations.
T.One and T.Foil transfer papers use the latest white-toner technology in combination with traditional foil products for garment decoration applications.
The company will also demonstrate a new award-winning transfer process for the decoration and personalisation of footballs and rugby balls using the white-toner technology and CPM transfer paper. Another award-winning innovation on display will be the RST9.1 transfer paper used for direct-to-product printing of hard surfaces such as wood, slate and plastics.
With the MagiCut range of specialist materials that includes flock, glitter and reflective formats, TheMagicTouch now offers over 160 different garment-decorating options, while the company’s 123 Flex and 123 Premium Flex materials are renowned for their low-temperature application capabilities.
As a recognised Platinum dealer for Sawgrass sublimation technology, the company, via its DyeSubMagic range of materials, supports the latest dye-sublimation printers and inks.
Nova Chrome shows the ease of dye sub
As a leading UK supplier of dye sublimation solutions, Nova Chrome will be demonstrating both the ease and quality of sublimation printing on Stand H64.
As well as a selection of A4, A3 and A1 systems, all of which are available with dedicated support, visitors will be able to see the Virtuoso range of printers used in conjunction with Sawgrass’ SubliJet ink, which delivers vibrant and consistent quality. Available in the form of individual colour cartridges, it combines low cost, with maintenance free printing.
The Virtuoso platform offers options for all types of user, including the SG400, an A4 desktop unit that offers the advantage of low start-up costs, together with the reliability and quality associated with the brand. The SG800 offers a similar level of performance, but with lower printing costs and the capability to produce A3/A3+ sized prints. Finally, for those operating within production environments, there is the VJ-628, which offers a width of 24.8” and is available with a range of inksets that suit virtually all applications.
Also on display will be a range of Heat Transfer Presses, with the A1 Pneumatic Press being demonstrated throughout the duration of the show, together with a wide variety of sublimation printable products, including ceramics, glass, plastics, woods, metals, textiles and much more besides.
Sign Elite launches Printcover+
Sign Elite, which provides specialist insurance cover, will be using the occasion of the show to launch Print cover+, an exciting new innovation that further complements its successful Signelite product.
As signmaking and printing continue to merge, Sign Elite has decided to fill the gap in the market for a print specific product that also provides an element of sign installation cover too. Thus, Printcover+ combines cover for installation as well as the all-important print cover extensions required by the print sector. Most importantly there are no exclusions relating to the use of heat guns and angle grinders away from the business premises.
Whilst Printcover+ is designed for printers installing a small amount of signage, the Signelite policy is tailor made and designed for the sign and graphic sectors, and offers all of the key elements that signmakers require, including no height limits plus the flexibility for adding cover for driving customers’ vehicles as well as cover for a company’s own commercial vehicles too.
At the show Sign Elite will be adding an extra incentive in the form of 10 percent discount on premiums for members of the BSGA and IPIA.
