Lancashire-based printed brand communications company Envision Media has hailed the impact of its new HP Stitch S1000 dye sublimation printer, revealing that the machine has helped speed up production and reduce turnaround times for its customers.

Founded in 2013, Envision Media is a leading provider of large-format print, working with a wide range of clients on creative and effective projects. Just this year the company has worked with a number of local clientele and leading brands such as Formula One, Asda, The Jockey Club, Shark, Waterstones and B&M Stores, to name but a few.

With demand for its printing services having increased in recent years, particularly across the events and exhibitions sectors, Envision Media is constantly on the look-out for new machinery that can enhance its already-strong production portfolio and improve its offerings to customers.

This ultimately led to the company investing in the new HP Stitch S1000. Purchased from approved HP distributor RA Smart, the dye sublimation printer was installed at Envision Media’s specialist facility in April this year.

Paul Harrison, Director and Co-Founder of Envision Media, said despite having only been in place for a number of months, the new printer has already had a major impact on operations and the company has seen significant growth across the board.

“With the demand we have been facing, we understood the value in upgrading our manufacturing process with machinery that can cope with the demand, produce high quality prints and allow us to expand our scope within the fabrics and materials we use,” Paul said.

“Within the space of a few months, we are impressed with the full capabilities of the machinery and with the results so far, as are our clients – which is the most important accreditation for us.”

Installing the HP Stitch S1000 has allowed us to speed up our production times, meaning we are able to work to extremely tight deadlines and produce more artworks without compromising quality.”

Paul also noted the environmental benefits of working with the machine, saying the printer and its ability to handle more sustainable materials supports the company’s ongoing efforts of working towards a more planet friendly industry.

“This is the first piece of HP machinery we have installed at Envision Media, but many of our staff have worked with HP technology before,” Paul said. “As a company constantly looking for the best solutions in print, we will keep monitoring the latest developments and could look to add more HP printers in the future.

“We are excited to continue delivering vibrant, eye-catching artworks for all of our clients and the HP Stitch S1000 is a great step towards us achieving this, and we can’t wait to share some of the incredible work we have been creating!”
