Roland Truevis VG2 and Easymount join Truprint Media’s wide format printing department.

21 May 2021

Poster Printing Margate

Over the past few years we have seen our wide format printing services grow at an incredible rate from our Margate based factory. This has been very demanding on our ageing HP latex and aqueous printers.

Truprint media soon realised that to continue its fast print turnaround and maintain a high level of customer service that it was time to invest in new technology within its wide format print department.

Various manufacturers were considered but when Truprint Media reviewed what it was trying to achieve and the new products it wanted to offer to clients the award-winning Roland Truevis VG2 was the perfect contender.

The new Roland Truevis VG640 offered the latest technology when it comes to print and cut and was perfectly suited to the needs of our clients and the business. The new printheads produce near life like images by using improved vibrant inks and offer a wider colour gamut to equivalent machines. The integrated cutting technology is fast, precise, and accurate.

The new inks offer eco solvent technology, faster output whilst meeting strict environmental standards which is Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certified. With literally no waste and the 8 colours including white allowing us to print onto both dark and light transparent materials.

With new Roland fully installed Truprint Media are now able to offer the following products.

Banners

Printed onto a PVC in various grades from our standard 440gsm up to a heavy duty 770gsm. Banner printing is one of the most popular ways to advertise your upcoming event. Mesh banners are used by builders and scaffolders as often these are up high and required to withstand high winds. With small mesh holes this allows the wind to pass through without causing damage to the banner.

Various finishing options are available on all our banners including trimmed to size, hemmed with equally spaced eye lets or even pole pocket banners.

Roller Banners / Pull up Banners.

Our roller banners are available in 4 widths 850mm, 1000mm, 1500mm and 2000mm. The standard height is 2000mm. Printed on a grey backed light stop and supplied complete with a carry case. Our roller banners are the ideal solution for events and shows.

 

Rigid Signage

Our three most used materials for signs are Foamex, Correx or Dibond. Foamex is a solid and strong, yet lightweight weather resistant material which is extremely versatile and commonly used for most signage. Correx is a corrugated or fluted material often used for estate agent boards also known as fluted polypropylene. Dibond is rigid aluminium composite which consists of two aluminium sheets with a rigid inner polyethylene core. Dibond is used for road signs etc or for when a magnetic surface is required.
