At Your Print Partner we are delighted to be able to announce that work has been completed this week in installing new `superwide' print machinery.
Increasing demand and a widening product range has fuelled growth, and this has prompted the company to invest in a new Mimaki 320 print machine, which is capable of printing on 3.2m wide rolls of fabric.
The new machine will bring annual print capacity up to 250,000m2.
Originally operating as a print management company, Your Print Partner has been digitally printing banners, flags and outdoor branding products since 2012 when we invested in our very first direct-to-textile printer. Fast forward to today, and the company is now operating with nine state-of-the-art print machines, including PVC printers and CAD cutters, and the product range has grown to over 200 different products, with many of those items printed in-house.
“This is a really exciting development for Your Print Printer” said Managing Director Stuart Maclaren. “One of our most popular products are our feather flags, which you might typically see at sporting events or car forecourts. With this new printer, now the largest in our building, we have the potential to print an additional 1,269 flags a week. This opens the door for us to new markets and competing for much larger tenders.”
As well as improving our efficiency, decreasing set up times and reducing fabric wastage, this new printer opens up the potential for new product development.
The team at Your Print Partner has been developing a new range of display products, due for release in the New Year. The products will all be produced using the new printer, utilising the ‘superwide’ print surface to produce seamless large-scale graphics for exhibitions and trade shows.
Images, specifications and prices for the new product range will be revealed on this website soon.
The company has also announced that as part of its growth strategy, five new jobs will be created during the winter period. The new recruits will be joining the Pre-Print, Sales and Customer Service Departments.26/11/2014 17:38
