Double-Sided Finishing Tape
E. L. Hatton Sales Co.(Booth 2675) will showcase the Banner Ups MegaTape, a double-sided version of PowerTape products.
MegaTape is made of the same super-strong film as PowerTape, but is adhesive coated on both sides. This provides banner makers with the strength of PowerTape and the fold-finished banner edge which some prefer in a single product.
Available in 1.5-inch widths, MegaTape is applied just like ordinary double-sided banner hem tape, but has more than triple the strength, plus it adds firmness to the banner edge for a much cleaner appearance. Banners made with
MegaTape withstood winds of over 90 MPH in wind tunnel tests. Also, MegaTape can be used to reinforce hems in two-sided banners, as the tape itself is invisible after folded into the hem.

Tabletop UV LED Inkjet Printing
Direct Color Systems (Booth 1836) has made a breakthrough in UV LED inkjet printing, bringing this cutting-edge technology to a line of economical, small-format flatbed printers that are perfect for producing signage of superior quality for both interior and exterior applications.
The Direct Jet 1014UV and Direct Jet 1024UV tabletop printers produce crystal-clear, high-resolution photo-quality images and crisp text with outstanding solvent resistance and abrasion durability. Print on vinyl, plastics (including acrylic), wood, glass, ceramics, metals, and more. The printers’ opaque white ink allows users to print onto virtually any colored substrate, resulting in vibrant, bright colors with a white under base. DCS’s UV LED inks are very flexible and won’t crack or flake off, even in very flexible vinyl applications. The Direct Jet line boasts a printable area of up to 10x24 inches (254mm x 610mm) and up to a 6-inch (152mm) Z axis. These printers have options for both uni- and bi-directional print modes with resolution of up to 5760 dpi.
EFI (Booth 2302) features the new EFI R3225, VUTEk GS3250LX, Rastek T1000, and Fiery family of products.
EFI’s new printer, the R3225, is a 3.2-meter roll-to-roll, UV inkjet printer that offers superior image quality, low total cost of ownership, and access to the widest range of flexible substrates at production speed. This affordably priced printer is ideal for premium soft signage applications. Using true eight-level variable drop grayscale technology, the R3225 delivers stunning images, durability prints, and optimized ink usage. This environmentally friendly printer produces minimal VOC levels, compared to solvent-based printers, and less heat than latex, reducing owner energy costs.
The Rastek T1000 offers high definition photographic image quality on a larger flatbed vacuum table platform and is the perfect choice for traditional signage and specialty markets where CMYK plus white printing are essential at the same speed.
