Pure Theatre said it was able to achieve "perfect, smooth black" borders for its projector screens thanks to support from Quality Print Services and inks from Nazdar
Pure Theatre, which markets itself as "the home cinema company," is a division of Geomics Ltd established in 2003.
Two years ago, Pure Theatre installed an MT Refretonics 3.2m-wide UV digital inkjet printer at its premises to print the black borders on its projector screens. The company then got in touch with QPS – a wide-format print specialist, main UK distributor of Nazdar digital inkjet ink products and key reseller for Roland DG.
"Most AV businesses either spray or weld borders onto their screens, but we decided to go with the high-tech option of printing them," said Chris Pettitt, managing director of Pure Theatre. "QPS immediately recommended Nazdar UV LED inks. We also added some silicone heat pads to the header tanks which ensured we were able to maintain the temperature at a constant 40°. Following the recommendation, we saw a huge improvement in our printed output and now are able to consistently print perfect smooth black borders on our projector screens."
Nazdar UV LED inks can be used for a wide variety of substrates. The inks offer exceptional color and chemistry compatibility, quality and cost-effectiveness.
"The printed borders now look fantastic and we couldn't recommend the team at QPS more highly; they offer really helpful advice and provide brilliant support service, and we really appreciate their assistance," Pettitt said.
