This increased media independence has allowed Xtreme Signs to print with greater confidence on to a broader range of cost-effective materials. “Overall we are very pleased with the Nazdar ink for our UV printer and have realised considerable savings in terms of materials which we can now use,” concludes Pierre.
Chipping – I get edge chipping on my UV prints, but it is unavoidable. Right?
Again, it is wrong to assume that any anomaly created by a particular UV-curable ink is simply a compromise that has to be accepted. Different inks are formulated to service different applications and there is no need to accept the default inks when they can be readily and painlessly replaced with a more suitable ink solution.
Steve Tilbury, managing director at Evans Graphics, found himself suffering with edge chipping on the output produced on his Cromaprint system and turned to Nazdar for help. Steve explains “For years we have struggled with edge chipping and imperfections created during routing and cutting, that we were led to believe were unavoidable.”
Following consultation with a Nazdar ink technician, Steve was advised to try a Nazdar UV ink that was formulated for increased flexibility to better service exactly that type of application. Steve was more than happy with the results. He continues, “We tried ink from the Nazdar UV range. We now save time and money due to reductions in the finishing process. We can also now select from a wider range of cutting equipment and substrates which further reduces costs and widens our target markets”.
Multi-platform capability? – But surely I need different ink suppliers for different printers?
Actually, no you don’t. Nazdar offers a full range of high quality inks to meet the needs of multiple print platforms. Since moving to Nazdar inks for his Cromaprint system, Evans Graphics’ Steve Tilbury has converted more of the print production equipment at the company over to Nazdar solutions and is now seeing further benefits for his business.
He states, “As a busy print producer with equipment from multiple suppliers, managing ink inventory was almost a full time job. Since switching to Nazdar digital ink we have been able to use one supplier for all of our printers, vastly reducing the amount of money tied up in inventory. We have also been able to streamline the logistics of supply due to the much improved lead times Nazdar can provide.”
