"This machine represents a significant investment of some £250,000, but it means that we can produce sign faces digitally for the first time," says William Smith’s Marketing Manager, Chris Bradley.
"With this printer we are able to ensure consistent quality, consistent colour and high gloss levels for all sign faces. Individual sign faces and large production runs can be processed faster, so that we can work to much shorter lead times. This means we can respond even faster to customer requirements.
"An added bonus is that we have less wastage, which is a significant benefit both economically and environmentally."
