When one of Britain’s foremost institutions decides on what material to use for its window advertising to promote the Turner Prize, it looks to Contra Vision to provide the solution. Tate Liverpool has been using Contra Vision® Performance™ HD film for several years, because of the exclusive properties this breakthrough printable film delivers.

ArtSystems, the Nottingham-based specialist systems distributor and service provider, is delighted to announce that it has been appointed as the exclusive UK distributor for Hahnemühle’s Digital FineArt range.

Geordies Signs has chosen PVC-Free Kavalan and PONGS® Blackback roll materials from CMYUK as it expands its services into tension frame graphics and single-piece wallcoverings.

Solopress has expanded its range of colour options on foil printing. The new colours are Bright Gold, Green, Turquoise, Blue, Red and Black. They join Gold, Rose Gold and Silver, which have been part of the Solopress offering since 2019.

A reliable and ever-popular series of coloured films, the 700 Premium Film™ range from Avery Dennison just got even better.

Wide-format imaging equipment leader Roland DGA has announced the addition of a Holographic Prism Film (ESM-HOLO) to its existing family of premium media offerings.

TAYA Groups today announces its latest distribution partnership with Signcom, the leading Swedish supplier of equipment, consumables, software, and services. Signcom will offer the full range of KAVALAN PVC-free large-format media to its significant customer base in Sweden, Denmark, and Finland with immediate effect.

With the chill of winter now very much in the air, the minds of print service providers, sign-makers and specialist installers begin to turn to how they are going to cope with installing graphics in cold conditions.

CMYUK is to make consignment stock holding a standard offering to all its UK customers.* Palletised consignment shipments are available to those organisations that have large internal repositories, while those lacking space will be given a free bespoke shelf racked container for the external storage of roll materials. These are condensation-proof, secure, and can hold material rolls up to 5m wide.

Fisher Textiles, the leading supplier of fabric for digital printing, has added three fabric media for SEG and soft signage to its Enviro-Tex fabric line for dye sublimation printing. All are made with 100% post-consumer recycled polyester and have a better white point that traditional textiles made from post-consumer waste. Using recycled polyester yarns not only keeps PET bottles out of landfills, it also reduces energy consumption and conserves petroleum resources used to produce virgin polyester.

Following the success of their Martha bag made from flexible thermoplastic donated by UK firm Structure-flex, Malawi-based charity Cycle of Good have launched a new range of Anything Goes bags.

The wide-format division of printer manufacturer Mimaki has collaborated with creative professional Anabella Bergero to produce a striking window installation, printed on Drytac ViziPrint Impress Clear film.

Empire Screen Printing, a leading manufacturer of screen-printed products, enables its customers to practice lean manufacturing with decal sheets, where multiple labels are printed on a single sheet instead of being produced as individual decals. These multi-label sheets are ideal for equipment needing multiple decals. Decal sheets improve productivity, reduce the chance of error, and help facilitate novel production processes that advance lean manufacturing practices.

Texo Trade Services (TTS) has been in operation for 25 years. Founder Jan van den Heuvel started a silk screen transfer paper distribution company in 1997 that grew under successor Floris Jan van den Heuvel to become a European market leader in printable textiles, sublimation paper, calendar protection paper and textile finishing products for the fashion, visual communications, interior design and sports industries. In 2022, TTS serves customers in over 60 countries from Moordrecht and its branches in Germany, France, England and Italy, as well as via agencies worldwide.

HP and Brett Martin celebrated their new Approved Partners relationship by collaborating at PRINTING United in Las Vegas. HP has previously used Brett Martin substrates in their Graphics Experience Center in Georgia but this was the first time the companies had worked together at an exhibition.

The pandemic caused a steep drop in demand in the paper industry, as in many others. This led to unavoidable shutdowns for some production lines at our mills which, among other factors, resulted in a drop in many environmental indicators for this period.

Spandex is offering sign-makers and graphics producers a significant new choice of environmentally responsible materials with the addition of ImagePerfect EverGreen. This ground-breaking portfolio of eco-friendlier self-adhesive films does not compromise ease of application or performance, and comes at prices comparable with conventional alternatives.

Canadian large-format print company Creative Silhouettes recently used Drytac Polar Grip white polymeric self-adhesive vinyl to create a striking application at a busy intersection in its home city of Toronto.

Innovia Films announces a new generation of polypropylene, high gloss films, which are printable by both HP Latex and UV Inkjet systems.

Wide format is regarded as one of the most exciting areas of the print industry, with one of the main reasons for this being that every day is varied. Each customer you deal with will want something different; every project will have unique specifications; and, to some extent, every surface has distinctive properties that will affect how a graphic film can adhere.

Drytac, the leading international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the large-format print and signage markets, is delighted to announce the global availability of its improved ViziPrint Impress Clear UVL film.
