Epson will run at least seven different printer models at The Print Show this year. These will demonstrate the breadth of applications and high-quality results achievable from its dye sublimation, textile, label, photographic, POS and signage printers.
On loan from fashion designer Richard Quinn, who uses Epson SureColor SC-F dye sublimation and DTG equipment, will be the stunning floral flowing outfit famously worn by Amal Clooney, wife of George Clooney, at the New York Met Gala earlier this year. In addition, a range of products including fabrics, vinyls and wallpapers produced by textile students at the Birmingham City University will also be displayed.
Phil McMullin, sales manager of Epson UK, says: “Now that IPEX has closed we believe more people than ever will attend The Print Show and we welcome its return to the NEC. Visitors to our stand can see just how versatile our products and applications can be. Printers have an opportunity to expand the range of applications they offer and to do more than ever on any one of our products, for instance, both textiles and promotional products on a single dye sublimation printer. Printers should come with open and curious minds and be prepared to be blown away by the potential of today’s digital printing equipment.”
The product line up includes two signage printers (SureColor SC-80600 and SC-S 60600), photographic/proofing printer (SureColor SC-P20000), a dye sublimation printer (SureColor SC-F6200), a DTG printer (SureColor SC-F2100) and two label printers (ColorWorks C7500 and ColorWorks C3500).
There will be live demonstrations of how to dye sub-images onto 3D objects with a vacuum oven, a great opportunity for those who want to break into the promotional products sector. Epson’s latest business inkjet printers from its Workforce Enterprise range will also be on display. These deliver Epson’s signature inkjet technology, with low environmental impact, low intervention and high productivity, to small workgroups to save money, time and energy.
“We hope to generate new sales at the show,” says Mr McMullin. “There is an opportunity to educate existing and potential customers and to demonstrate the rapid return on investment and profit potential of our products.”
