Multiprint Solutions based in Stockport became the very first company to install Océ Colorado roll-to-roll 1650 printer in the UK. With new team members joining Multiprint Solutions, the company been investing mostly in new machinery to improve the large format offering to their clients which includes advertising agencies, POS and merchandisers, retail and display/event companies locally and nationwide.
Last month, they invested in the brand-new Océ Colorado roll-to-roll 1650 printer, the very first to be purchased in the UK. The Colorado UV printer can print onto substrates up to 1650mm wide and because of the unique way the inks are cured they can offer a matt or gloss finished image no matter what substrate is used.
For example, one can print a matt image onto gloss paper, which if you have white text on a coloured background gives the appearance of the white text looking as though it has been gloss varnished. And, earlier this extraordinary feature was not feasible without extra lamination.
The machine also offers double-sided printing and can print onto materials up to 800 microns thick. The inks are very flexible and so won’t “crack” when creased or folded. According to director Andy Bruce, the quality and speed that Colorado produces graphics and the wide range of substrates it can use are fabulous as it can print onto almost anything.
