Upwards of 20 years ago, Graphicolor Printing, Inc. opened its doors as a commercial printer, added cut-sheet digital, and then transitioned into wide format, serving a variety of high-profile clients including a popular movie theater chain and two well-known Midwestern grocery store chains, with 24 to 48-hour turnarounds on most jobs.
“We chose the Acuity Select 26 from Fujifilm because we needed a higher quality press and the ability to print on a variety of substrates, quickly,” said Jeff Huebner, operations manager, Graphicolor Printing, Inc. “Our clients require a variety of different substrates for point of purchase, backlit, displays, posters, and in-store signage.
Print performance is optimized by Fujifilm’s Uvijet inks. These incorporate the company’s proprietary ‘Micro-V’ dispersion technology that delivers wide adhesion, superb color vibrancy and excellent durability in every print.
“With the Acuity Select 26 we are definitely using less ink,” said Mike Huebner, president, Graphicolor Printing, Inc. “The ‘instant dry’ of this ink allows for efficient production; we can print, immediately take it to the cutting table, package the job, and it’s out the door.”
The Uvijet KN Series is a high-quality UV curable inkjet system, for Piezo Drop-on-Demand print heads, specifically developed for use with the Acuity Flatbed Series of printers from Fujifilm. The inks offer superb dot reproduction, lightfast bright colors, and adhere to a wide range of rigid and flexible uncoated materials.
Graphicolor’s wide-format line-up of Fujifilm innovations also includes two Acuity LED 1600 II presses.
