Stickershop invests in a Titanium cutter

Stickershop invests in a Titanium cutter
Established in 2017, Stickershop is a Web to Print self-adhesive label and sticker manufacturer based in Bristol, which has grown steadily and now employs eight people.

The company’s plant list includes an impressive array of seven Roland Printer/Cutters including five VG640s, two LEC2-640s and a Ricoh Digital Production Colour Printer.

It has also recently invested in an International Graphics Supplies (IGS) Titanium 2.5 x 1.6 metre cutting table, to eliminate a manual cutting and finishing bottleneck arising from the huge increase in demand it has enjoyed during the last four years.

Explaining his rationale for selecting the Titanium machine, Shane Pritchard, Director of Stickershop said: “We looked at a range of cutting machines but after thorough testing and visiting an existing user, the Titanium 2516 stood out for us. It is robust, adaptable and very competitively priced.

“Our seven Roland Printers and IGS Titanium 2516 combination has enabled us to offer a varied range of self-adhesive labels and stickers in a variety of ink options, of any size or shape and any quantity. Our customers expect quality and they want fast turnaround times at affordable pricing. The Titanium 2516 has been integrated into our workflow using bespoke software, developed in-house by fellow Director, Callum Baker. This takes all our jobs from order to dispatch via proof

approval, imposition, printer selection and cutting by simply using a barcode code scanning system. This level of automation makes us very efficient in processing a large number of daily orders.

The IGS team managed the installation very efficiently, and this meant we were in production within hours of delivery”.

The Titanium series offers an impressive range of cutting tables with automatic precision cutting tools enabling the exact cutting depth to be achieved both quickly and precisely. Supplied as standard with all Titanium cutters, is A high-resolution registration camera, which is supplied as standard with all Titanium cutters, ensures that printed jobs are cut accurately to register and offers QR code recognition to locate the correct cutting file for each job automatically.

A range of specialty tools is also supplied with each cutter. These tools offer speed, power and the flexibility to handle a wide variety of materials, such as Dibond, corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, textiles, wood and a long list of plastics.

Peter Flynn, Managing Director of IGS commented: “I’m delighted to see Stickershop is already enjoying the many benefits of moving to a Titanium cutter. As Shane has identified, our price and performance are hard to match and this powerful combination is enabling us to build a very impressive portfolio of customers.

Our showroom is also busy with demonstrations for companies looking to invest in digital Cutters and UV flatbed printers to meet their customers’ requirements for short-run packaging and social distancing signage”.
