Pictographics Adds to Its Eclectic Range of Capabilities with a Screen Truepress Jet2500UV

December 17, 2012
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL—Dec. 14, 2012—An uncommonly broad arsenal of capabilities sets Pictographics apart from the crowd and allows the large-format imaging specialist to cultivate high-end clientele. With the addition of the Screen 98.4˝ Truepress Jet2500UV roll and board UV inkjet printer, the company has now strengthened its diversity to meet unique customer needs.

“The Truepress Jet2500UV offers the widest range of print applications and the best image quality that currently exist,” said Craig Miller, director and co-owner of Las Vegas-based Pictographics. “Normally, you don’t get those characteristics in one piece of equipment. It fits perfectly into our business model.”

Pictographics’ business model is that of a “boutique job shop.”  Miller said he doesn’t even introduce himself as a printer anymore.

Since its launch in 1994, the company has embraced all of the printing and finishing methods it could, including dye sublimation, lamination and computer cutting. Operating out of a 20,000-square-foot facility with design, sewing and installation departments, the shop prints everything from point-of-purchase displays to specialty wall coverings.

In fact, the breadth of its projects is a little difficult to characterize. For example, Pictographics printed graphics for the 2008 and 2012 Democratic National Conventions. More recently, it produced backlit floor graphics for the stage at Clear Channel Broadcasting’s iHeartRadio Music Festival 2012. An increasing amount of business is derived from trade shows, sporting events and entertainment spectaculars.

“When a client like Intel or Ford comes to Las Vegas, we work with event technology companies and agencies on custom graphics for the stage or arena,” Miller explained.

Whether printing one very large display or a large run of very small images, Pictographics can rely on the Truepress Jet2500UV to turn in a winning performance.

“Printing at up to a 1,500-dpi resolution with as small as a 6-picoliter drop enables amazingly detailed images,” Miller said. “We can reproduce images the size of postage stamps using 4-point text that can be read with no problem at all.”

The Truepress Jet2500UV is Pictographics’ third UV machine that can switch back and forth between rigid and roll-fed substrates.

“We started offering UV-cured inkjet printing in 2002 and have about as much experience as anyone in the industry,” Miller noted. “Screen has done a good job of overcoming limitations associated with hybrid systems, such as printing directly on glass sheets. Rollers incorporated into the feed table of the Truepress Jet2500UV handle heavy materials extremely well without the risk of surface scratches and misregistration.”
