Signbox has installed swissQprint's best-selling Nyala 4 flatbed printer as the business continues to push boundaries with its innovative, iconic and aspirational signage solutions.

Founded in 1985, Signbox built its reputation on transformative signage solutions that help to build brands. Through a combination of design and technology it has focused on delivering the innovative signage that complements customers' architecture and spaces.

Needing to continue to deliver both novel solutions and meet increased production volumes, the business looked to invest in a new printer and therefore set some demanding criteria. Quality, performance, flexibility and sustainability were all key for Signbox. Having seen the 3.2×2m Nyala in action at Sign UK, and after a full demonstration at swissQprint's UK headquarters in Bracknell, it was chosen as the ideal machine to meet all its demands.

Delivering exceptional results

The Signbox team opted to use all of the Nyala's nine colour channels, selecting six colours, white, spot orange and varnish. The addition of orange provides an extended gamut in red and orange tones, while the varnish offers high-quality visual and haptic effects.

Alongside the Nyala's impressive output of up to 206 square meters per hour, it also boasts the latest print head technology, printing at up to 1350 dpi. For added versatility and productivity, alongside the exceptional print quality, Signbox specified the roll to roll and dual roll options. These allow the business to benefit from the extra capability of printing narrow rolls of material overnight.

When we saw the Nyala at Sign UK for the first time, it was clear that it would immediately benefit our business," said Signbox's Managing Director, Mark Bartlett. "Its production output, flexibility and quality are clearly second to none. However, it is the little things like perfecting a true orange and the ability to print braille that are done so well by swissQprint and will help us provide new and inspirational signage solutions."

Sustainable brand guardians

Signbox is known as a guardian of its customers' brands and the addition of the Nyala will ensure this reputation continues. In particular, the ability to print exceptional quality directly onto glass will be hugely beneficial, enabling it to provide the branding required by many of today's interiors and office spaces.

Alongside its productivity and print innovation, the Nyala's cutting-edge engineering aligns perfectly with Signbox's commitment to delivering improved sustainability. The energy efficiency as evidenced by swissQprint receiving ISO 20690:2018 certification, keeps energy requirements low. While reliable precision printing saves inks, time and materials, reducing inefficiencies. Also, the UV-curable inks are Greenguard Gold certified helping Signbox meet commitments to reducing the environmental impact of its signage for customers.

A collaborative approach

Our collaboration with Signbox has been fantastic and we are delighted to have been able to meet their very high expectations. The combination of the Nyala's innovative print capabilities alongside Signbox's focus on constantly pushing boundaries will continue to inspire customers and help bring spaces to life."
