In their words Resolution Imaging has been “home to digital with a difference” since 1996. The company offers enhanced utility and environmentally responsible retail display solutions and with decades of experience backing them up. Recently the company had a requirement for a high quality large format digital signage printing solution. After a comprehensive assessment process they chose the Epson SureColor S80600.
Resolution Imaging director Darren Watkins explained, “We will bend over backwards to get the job done. Our team integrates extensive graphic arts experience, high adaptability and a genuine sense of fun. The new signage printer had to match all of those qualities and deliver more. So, after a successful trip to Tokyo Sign and having a good look at all of the Japanese solvent printers on their home turf, coming back and buying the Epson S80600 was an easy decision as it stood head and shoulders over the competition.”
The SureColor Solvent 80600 is designed to and enables Resolution Imaging to produce durable high-quality signage quickly, easily and at minimum cost. It suits their variable workflow environment with low to medium production volumes. To add flexibility it can be used with a wide range of media including paper, canvas, film and vinyl.
Resolution Imaging acquired the S80600 complete with software that ensures it can easily take care of their high-value high-impact applications including large format photo imaging, indoor POS and signage, back-lit displays, window decorations, wallpapers, surface finishes and décor.
Watkins continued, “The Epson S80600 ticked all of the boxes, quality print with a wide colour gamut, an output speed that suited our needs and an ease of use that we still talk about every day.”
The SC-S80600 also incorporates Epson's latest PrecisionCore printhead and UltraChrome Eco-Solvent ink technology. It produces prints that are brighter and glossier than ever before with a wider colour gamut.
Watkins added, “I have to stress that the gamut in particular is a real plus with Pantone colours being reproduced with ease. Our S80600 is also coupled with an Onyx RIP to aid us in maintaining high standards of quality reproduction.”
For Darren Watkins and the team at Resolution Imaging their new Epson SureColor S80600 has not only added value to the company but also efficiency as it produces quality product, using lower pass rates and less ink, with a simpler configuration, easier operation and faster job completion. Prints also dry more quickly to enable same-day job turnaround and the printer itself requires minimum maintenance.
Watkins concluded, The majority of work going through the Epson 80600 is on self-adhesive vinyl and the fast drying inks have also proved invaluable when trying to meet the tight deadlines everyone in the industry faces on a daily basis. Put simply this is an excellent, high quality, high speed, highly efficient large format signage printer with no equal.”
