More PacPrint 2013 Updates

Wow! I just realized it’s been waaaay too long since writing a formal update for our blog. So here goes! 🙂

Zac and I recently went down to Melbourne for PacPrint (Printing Trade show) and spent some time checking out all the latest equipment on offer from the various suppliers e.g. Epson, HP, Canon, Fujifilm, Kodak, Konica Minolta, Roland etc etc etc and the brands go on. Our main purpose for being there though was to really check out one of the newest Epson machines that we’re looking at getting for InkFX.

It’s a beast! We spent quite a few hours with the guys at Epson and our trade suppliers running samples and tweeking things to make sure the quality for what we do and for our clients is at it’s best! 🙂 We’re pleased to say that we’re more than thrilled with the results and are hoping to be able to get the machine in the next few weeks.

We actually took a few Canvases down from here that we had already printed on our current printers using the Hahnemuhle Daguerre canvas to compare. The color gamut of the new printers is amazing. Even the 4 color printer results were very impressive. Not quite good enough for what we’re after but good all the same!

We’ll keep you posted on this as to how the acquisition goes though. 🙂

New Products

We’ve added a few new products to our range. Including Rolled Canvases:
