Chicago Printer Installs Epson SureColor S70670 for Large-format Banners
CHICAGO—April 2, 2013—Solvent printing is sort of a necessary evil in the large-format printing world...nobody likes the smell or negative environmental impacts, but everyone loves the low price it offers and the wide range of media it’s capable of imaging on.
One of the biggest complaints people have with printed banners is the grainy look—the nature of solvent ink spreads on the media, not to mention grand format solvent printers can have a ink droplet in the 30-50 picoliter range. This makes small text difficult to read, fine details blurry, and gradients come out with banding and other visual artifacts.
Chicago’s Sunrise Digital has a reputation for delivering the very best quality products in every market segment they serve. Over the years, the company continually invested in the latest print technology to improve the quality of delivered products. Epson’s new SureColor S70670 eco-solvent printer fill the gap of quality and productivity, and Sunrise was among the first to place an order.
Sunrise is reported to be one of the first printing companies around the United States to install this new printer. The image quality is “in a different league,” according to Jimmy Sun, the company’s president. Compared to the other solvent and latex technologies, the new Epson delivers clear and legible text down to 2-pt, amazing color vibrancy, smooth gradients, and solid block tints. The printer was installed with the optional fast-drying heater and heavy duty media handling system, further enabling the company to pump out a large volume of work in a short time, as often is necessary with the company’s fast-turnaround guarantee.
Being a G7 Qualified Master Printer, Sunrise adheres to the highest standards in color accuracy and consistency. In addition to printing banners, the company has a stable of small- and large-format digital printing equipment, including multiple HP Indigos, UV curable flatbed presses, CNC digital contour cutters, a laser cutter, and a full in-house bindery.
