Slam signs invests in new SureColor large format printer
Signage and printing company Slam Signs has invested in a four-colour SureColor SC-S40600 large format printer. It is the company’s third SureColor – it has owned a SC-S30600 since its launch in 2012 and purchased its eight-colour SC-S70600 in 2015
Based in St Albans, Hertfordshire, Slam Signs provides a complete design and print service to a wide range of customers – from small start-ups to well-known nationwide companies – and has been in business since 2007. It produces a variety of products including vehicle graphics/digital wraps, shop facias and signage, window graphics, banners/roller banners, internal and external signage, POS and pop-up exhibition displays.
Purchased from authorised Epson reseller Papergraphics, the SC-S40600 is one of three new 64-inch SureColor professional signage printers launched earlier this year. Its new design and production features combine to offer market-leading quality at the fastest possible speeds – up to 58.4 square metres/hour – with precise repeatability and long-term durability. The affordable, entry-level SC-S40600 features Epson’s PrecisionCore printhead and offers Slam Signs a precise and accurate way to create high-quality graphics on a range of substrates including clear film, vinyl, canvas and paper. Working in tandem with Epson’s new formulation UltraChrome GS3 inks, the printer produces a wide range of highly accurate colours.
Slam Signs business partners David Jorge and Jodie Banfather say the new SureColor range is impressive: “You can tell Epson have thought carefully about the design and build. Installation and set-up is straightforward and simple things like the addition of a large, clear LED-lit inspection panel for viewing the printing area once printing is in full flow make the printer easy to use. We know that we can rely on Epson’s engineering to give us high quality and productivity with full back-up and support should we need it.”
Slam Signs is particularly impressed with the speed and the highly accurate and repeatable colour reproduction of the SureColor range: “The output speed is excellent and the wider colour gamut gives amazing quality and clarity, whatever substrate is being printed, we can be confident that the colours will match consistently. I’m sure our customers are going to appreciate the results and I’m certain it’s going to open up whole new opportunities for our display and specialist applications.”
Phil McMullin, Sales Manager, ProGraphics, Epson UK, says: “Everything about the design of the new SureColor SC-S series is centred on improving the printing experience for the user and reducing cost of ownership. The printers lead the market in offering the very best combination of quality, speed and price and truly mark the pinnacle of Epson’s knowledge and expertise in one range.”
