Agfa Graphics announced that Ivey Performance Marketing of Milwaukie, OR, a retail brand marketing services company, has upgraded and improved its printing technologies with the installation of Agfa’s :Jeti 1224 HDC FTR UV printing system.
With offices in Oregon, Wisconsin and California, Ivey prides itself in designing, producing, installing and maintaining branded retail marketing environments. Because Ivey’s printing capabilities are key to their ‘soup to nuts’ marketing services, the Company decided to invest in a faster, higher quality printing system with the purchase of the :Jeti.
“In addition to its quality and speed, the white ink is one of the primary reasons we bought the :Jeti. We can run the :Jeti at faster speeds than other white ink printers,” said Dan Hansen, Ivey’s general manager at their Milwaukie, OR headquarters. “It’s critical for us to offer the latest printing technology so we can deliver unparalleled results to our clients.”
The :Jeti 1224 HDC FTR (flat to roll) is a high-productivity UV inkjet printer featuring High Definition Color capabilities. It offers the best true flatbed combined with roll-to-roll capability on the market. The 96” wide flatbed architecture of the :Jeti 1224 HDC allows for printing on virtually anything that is reasonably flat up to 5cm thick.
“The :Jeti 1224 HDC FTR features the widest color gamut and highest productivity in its class. Its high-definition imaging, sharp fine text and photographic detail offer bright, eye-catching color,” said Larry D’Amico, Vice President, Digital Imaging, Agfa Graphics, North America. “Users will enjoy the HDC’s high-speed printing without sacrificing any quality while lowering costs of production.”
It is ideally suited for high resolution trade show graphics, POS (Point-of-Sale) displays, real estate signs, backlit signs, lenticular displays, high resolution banners, ceramic material, wood and many more used in flatbed applications.
Since adding the :Jeti, Ivey’s production capabilities have become more efficient and business has grown. “We did our due diligence and knew we wanted a system that offered high quality, high speed and reliability. We’ve achieved all of those. The :Jeti allows us to go after new clients with new applications. We are able to do new things we were never able to do before. It’s a real bonus for our clients,” Hansen added.
SGIA Expo attendees can visit Agfa Graphics’ booths (#935 & 945) to see various inkjet systems running live. The booths will also feature the Agfa Graphics Application Zone, a comprehensive showcase of real-world applications that creatively demonstrate unusual inkjet output.
