Wide-Format Printer Triple Play at Source One Digital Increases the Production Output Tenfold
NORTON SHORES, MI—Source One Digital, a large- and grand-format printer based here, has purchased three new Fujifilm wide-format digital inkjet printers. Randy Crow, president, and Jim Freed, vice president of digital services, chose a five-meter Uvistar 2 super-wide-format UV roll printer (the first U.S. installation), an Inca Onset S40 wide-format UV flatbed inkjet printer and an Acuity Advance UV flatbed printer.
Fujifilm's ColorGATE production server software is now driving all three printers. "This new equipment and the ability to produce this level of quality and color accuracy will help us compete for higher-end jobs, such as branding and corporate identity work," notes Crow.
"If it can be printed on rigid or roll material, we can print it."
