CMYUK Open Days Creates Point-of-Sale Utopia

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Learning all about point-of-sale creation, from start to finish, is the key driver behind CMYUK's retail print production utopia which is taking place between 19 November and 14 December in St Albans, Hertfordshire. This highly innovative series of open days provides the unique opportunity to view the latest wide-format printing and finishing solutions from EFI VUTEk and Zünd, complemented by materials from Antalis McNaughton and framing systems from Spirit Displays.

Going far deeper than the average event or trade show, the CMYUK Open Days are designed to show attendees, in detail, how to benefit from creating the most highly efficient integrated production environment. Technical and practical demonstrations will cover everything from design and colour handling, through print-and-cut workflows, and material handling., all leading to high quality point-of-sale and retail applications.

As the UK distributor for EFI VUTEk printers and a Premier Solution Integrator for Zünd professional finishing solutions, CMYUK Digital is holding its open days to respond to the rapidly growing demand for wide-format digital print in the display and retail graphics' sectors. The company's consultancy expertise enables it to offer the best combination of commercial production solutions, complemented by its alliance with Antalis McNaughton for expert colour matching across different substrates and application types.

Taking the stage are the latest technological advances in printing and cutting, with the new EFI VUTEk QS2 Pro UV-curable solution making its UK début at the event. This latest platform incorporates true greyscale print quality, six colours plus white and sophisticated colour consistency and accuracy. The newest Zünd digital cutting systems are also on show, represented by the G3 for high volumes and the S3 entry-level product. Both will be demonstrating their fast precision capabilities using the latest Cut Centre software.

Visitors to the CMYUK Open Days will learn about all workflow elements for full point-of-sale production from design to final in-store product, and how to match accurately and consistently the colour expectations of customers. There is also the opportunity to discover how to streamline throughput, from file creation and colour control, through to fully integrated print-and-cut capabilities, showing the full potential of multi-job nesting and step-and-repeat to optimise material usage and minimise waste.

This retail print production utopia concentrates on the latest software, printer and cutter technology, showing how to combine all the associated technologies used for the production of high quality, consistent point-of-sale and display applications. Visitors will learn every process needed to create and complete ready-to-ship graphics, with real life FSDUs (free-standing display units) being produced in real-time during the presentations.

"No-one interested in the point-of-sale production environment can afford to miss this important series of open days as it is the unique opportunity for learning about all the processes essential for creating innovative, high quality graphics," states CMYUK Digital's Robin East. "Printing and finishing technologies have progressed radically during the past five years, with particular emphasis on the last twelve months, and businesses from all sectors of the graphic arts industry can now benefit from our commercial solutions."

As well as the latest printing and cutting technologies being demonstrated at the CMYUK Open Days, Antalis McNaughton will be showing a broad range of materials, including Nustone's eco-friendly alternative to plastics, Dibond aluminium composite, Forex, SmartX, Kapa boards, Coala vinyls and banner media and the fully recyclable and lightweight Antacote Lite. For framing solutions, Spirit Displays is featuring products from its family of tensioned aluminium banner systems, including Spirit-Flex.

As the UK distributor for Berger textiles, CMYUK will be demonstrating the potential for digitally printed textiles. There will be a strong emphasis at the event on how UV technology competes with dye sublimation in the retail textile market, with some very significant advantages. The open days will feature the latest Berger product called Samba, designed specifically for UV-curable technology and providing a single front-lit and back-lit solution which works perfectly with the Spirit-Tex patented framing systems from Spirit Displays.

The CMYUK Open Days are being held at the premises of Zünd UK, Unit 1 Spring Valley Business Centre, Porters Wood, St Albans, Herts AL3 6PD. Further information and registration details are available from CMYUK Digital at www.cmyukdigital.com.
