Efficiency and reliability
Lincoln-based Venture Signs & Graphics recently installed an Epson SureColor SC-S30600 printer to expand its print capabilities and bring more of its wide format print work in-house. The company bought the printer from SMGG, the commercial graphics division of Stanford Marsh Group.
The SureColor SC-S30600 Printer was selected for its efficiency and reliability, alongside its excellent reputation for printing on to vinyl media. Venture Signs is primarily using it for signmaking applications and vehicle graphics andits acquisition recently enabled the company to tackle a 50m hoarding print project with no difficulties whatsoever – something that would have been nigh-on impossible prior to its installation.
The SC-S30600 was also used to excellent effect on another eye-catching commission that involved the wrapping of eight support vehicles and two exhibition units for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance service. Following its completion of the job, Venture Signs & Graphics was praised for both the quality of its expert printing and its application expertise, with the Air Ambulance Service claiming that the fleet’s distinctive yellow livery, together with its Charitable Trust branding, helped the helicopter and supporting exhibition unit to attract a 30 percent increase in visitors at the recent Waddington Air Show.
Designed to offer efficient and environmentally-friendly production at the lowest total cost of ownership, the SureColor SC-S30600 enables sign and print companies, such as Venture Signs, to cost-effectively expand their service offering. It can be used to produce everything from posters, signs, banners, backlit panels and POS to vehicle wraps, interior decorations and exhibition displays.
With a wide range of roll media supported, users can reliably and cost-effectively print on to vinyl, canvas, clear film and photographic paper, plus a range of popular banner substrates, at up to 64-inch
By enabling Venture Signs to bring previously outsourced work in-house, the Epson machine has enabled it to exercise greater control over both the quality of the output it delivers and the speed at which it can turnaround jobs, thus providing a higher level of customer service, to its customers.
Explaining his company’s choice of the SC-S30600, Keith Archer from Venture Signs said: “We were looking for a printer to boost our production and the SureColor SC-S30600 was highly recommended by a number of people, with the Epson printheads being described as ‘particularly impressive’.”
As well as its purchase of the SC-S30600 Venture Signs also acquired an Easy Mount EM 1600 SH laminator and Wasatch RIP software and took full advantage of the free-of-charge Epson SureColor Academy training day that helps to ensure that end users achieve the very best results from their new machines.
Keith concluded: “We decided to approach SMGG after seeing a number of positive customer testimonials in the trade press, which were backed up by personal recommendations and happily, we weren’t disappointed by our choice – SMGG were very responsive to our needs and the whole installation was a simple and hassle-free experience. We’d be happy to recommend both the machine and the supplier!”
