Soft signage, Dye sub
Dye sub is a printing process used for dying fabric. Dye sub differs from our other techniques where we print directly onto fabric with standard ink types which sit on the surface. Dye sub actually infuses the pores of the fabric essentially becoming part of it.
Direct printing, Digital screen printing
Flatbed printing is the term used for printing an image directly to rigid substrates. Materials are placed on a vacuum bed and imaged from above. We use two types of ink technology, Latex and UV curable.
Profile cutting is the term used for cutting substrates to a shape. They can be three dimensional objects such as logo elements out of thick materials or thin display substrates cut to perfect dimensions.
A machine configured with white ink can print onto a range of substrates unacheivable with standard printing systems. If you have a coloured paper or substrate and do not print a base layer of white, the colour of the substrate will show through. On a black surface the image would be near invisible. On clear sufaces the image would look transparent. We eliminate these issues using white ink.
HP Latex R2000
A high quality hybrid flatbed printer. The R2000 uses water based latex inks to print on roll and rigid substrates. Unlike UV curable printing where the print finish is the ink finish, the latex ink takes on features of the substrate such as gloss level. It is configured with white ink (which is very white) and an overcoat. The ink is flexible and crack resistant when put under stress when substrates are folded. The inks are UL Ecologo and Greenguard Gold certified and give the environmental benefits of water based ink with the performance characteristics of a solvent ink.
Max print size: 2500mm wide, Sheet or roll fed.
Applications include: Thermoforming, POS, backlits, interior design, displays, posters and materials such as cardboard, foam PVC, ACM, paper, wood, glass and corflute.

This is a high resolution UV Flatbed printer producing stunning quality images for close up viewing. Great for interior or exterior display work and illuminated signage because of its high quality output. The 2512 is configured with white ink for dark and clear substrates. Printing UV curable ink is better for the environment. It emits only low levels of VOC's and has minimal waste ink during maintenance. Printing direct also reduces media waste as it eliminates the need for a film to be printed then applied to the rigid surface.

Barbieri Spectro LFP RT
Spectrophotometer for accurate colour management. This device reads colour swatches to build an accurate model of all achievable colour for that printer. We build and maintain profiles for our media in-house. This means we can accurately predict what colours we will get from any given printer before your job is run. This spectrophotometer does transmissive readings for accurate colour reproduction in back-lit graphics.
Software and workflow solutions for large format digital print. We utilise Onyx products to maximise our workflow and create a stable colour controlled environment. All printed output is processed and managed by the latest version of their cutting edge Thrive software.
