Image Digital Printing utilizing Agfa's :Jeti Printing Systems

Friday, April 09, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Orlando, FL - Agfa announced today that Image Digital Printing (IDP), a large-format printer in Toronto, Ontario is reaping success with their :Jeti inkjet solutions. 

Launched in 2003, IDP produces everything from small decals to billboards. Over the years, managing partner Rob Tenwesteneind said, IDP has invested in four Jeti inkjet systems. The company opted for the :Jeti 3150 and :Jeti 3300 solvent inkjet systems for projects such as vehicle wrapping and the :Jeti 1224 UV inkjet system for POP and other on-demand projects for its customers, which range from trade show display companies to large franchises.

"The Jeti systems are built strong, like tanks," Tenwesteneind said. "They have worked really well for us. We produce outdoor signage on a material called Crezon. With the :Jeti 3150 we can print directly onto this substrate. The vacuum on the table is strong and saves us lots of time and labor since we don't have to print on vinyl and then mount it to the wood."

Agfa announced the acquisition of Gandi Innovations in November 2009.  The acquisition enabled Agfa Graphics to significantly increase its presence in large format inkjet printing, as the Gandi Innovations portfolio of mid-range large format printers is completely complementary to Agfa Graphics' inkjet business. The deal closed in January 2010.

According to Tenwesteneind, "The transition between Gandi Innovations and Agfa has been seamless and it has not affected our daily operations.  We are considering further expansion and a new :Jeti system may help us do just that."

"The :Jeti line of printing systems fits nicely into Agfa's portfolio. Companies like Image Digital Printing have been loyal :Jeti users and are happy that they are being backed by an organization that is committed to helping grow the product line," said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics.

Sign Expo attendees can learn more about Agfa's full line of inkjet systems at Agfa's booth (#972) at ISA's International Sign Expo (www.signexpo.org), which runs April 8th - 10th in Orlando, Florida.
