Ottimo...Now Even Wider!

We are delighted to announce our purchase of an EFI Quantum LXr 5 UV LED 5 Metre Wide Roll Fed Printer.

This is our largest investment to date and we are proud to be the first company in the UK to purchase this machine and become one of the few providers of 5m wide print in the UK.

The Quantum arrives with us next month and offers excellent quality print at 100 sq metres per hour typically, to a wide range of roll fed substrates.

In addition to this, the Quantum is the only 5m wide machine to offer full in-line cutting which will speed up our finishing process, enabling us to offer extremely short turnarounds.

Joint Managing Director Lee Crew commented “We are over the moon with this latest purchase. Entering the 5m wide market, along with our already comprehensive range of equipment, means that we are perfectly placed to handle absolutely any project that customers require"

Conformable Brick Vinyl Installation

We've just installed this wall in our office kitchen using Mactac's Wall Wrap 100 conformable brick vinyl and matching laminate. Fitted straight to the breeze block wall and then conformed using heat, the vinyl takes the exact shape of the brick work...

The finished look is fantastic and highly impactful. It looks like the image has been spray painted onto the wall! For more information about this product please contact us.
