New Kodak inkjet media for variety of printers

KODAK Backlit Film coming out of a printer.Colourgen introduces new photo papers, canvases and backlit media for solvent, latex and UV-curable print applications.

Kodak and Brand Management Group (BMG) have jointly developed a range of media for print providers using solvent, latex or UV-curable printers available from Colourgen or authorised Colourgen Channel Partners. BMG has a trademark licensing agreement for Kodak's wide-format inkjet and PROFESSIONAL inkjet media lines that it markets through a world-wide distribution network.

"Our goal was to give those who use solvent, latex or UV-curable printers the ability to better compete. The new products maximise those inksets to ensure high-quality yet economical printing every time", says CG Forker of BMG.

Kodak Canvas Satin (18mil) and Matte (16mil) in 30", 54", 60" and 64" widths are available immediately along with Kodak Backlit Film Glossy (8mil) which is available in 36", 50" and 60" widths. Kodak Premium Photo Paper Satin and Glossy (10mil) in 36", 54" and 61" widths are also available.

"As BMG's main distributor for the Kodak-branded wide-format media in the UK, we are really pleased about the introduction of this range", says Melanie Enser, Product Marketing Manager at Colourgen Ltd. "The Kodak brand is synonymous with quality and with such a legacy, you know that the Kodak range of wide-format media will bring you the same. Kodak wide-format inkjet media are designed, qualified and manufactured to stringent performance and quality standards. Each product must successfully complete a battery of more than 50 demanding tests to bear the Kodak name. The introduction of this portfolio takes the brand to a wider audience and addresses the need of the sign-making industry specifically while still providing quality and economy."

All products are available from Colourgen or authorised Colourgen Channel Partners.
