Wide-Format Printer of the Year 2016: Printech Digital Imaging

04 November 2016

What sealed the deal for Printech Digital Imaging samples was its breathtaking beauty. This, of course, is the first rule of wide-format printing – it must make you “ooh”. The samples also featured innovative print processes.

In the grid print sample, the image was made with grid lines to make it work when pasted on glass. Printing was done on an EFI Vutek GS 3250 UV, which has white printing capability. The first layer was printed on white – and eight colours were printed on top. Avery grey black vinyl was used. This was done to achieve opacity. For this, during pre-press, the OnyxRIP created the image with a white layer.

In the door sticker sample, the image was flipped and pasted on the rear side of the glass. The EFI Vutek GS 3250 UV was deployed to print on Avery MBK 9040 clear vinyl. The special feature of the job is that the printed vinyl was pasted on the rear side of the glass to avoid scratch marks and vandalism at ATM counters.

In the ‘Hidesign’ 30x20-ft spot white sample, controlling consistency of print was one of the difficult tasks. To highlight the shoes, Printech printed spot white and increased the deposit of ink pigments.

For the backlit billboard print sample, the customer wanted to have the print on backlit flex, and when lit, the background should not be visible. Only the targeted image should be lit. For day effect, the company printed the full image on the front surface of a hot laminated backlit flex on a HP Scitex XP 5300. For night effect, the targeted image was left open and the rest of the image was covered with black ink.
