Colourbyte and Epson to team up for inaugural Print Show

Wednesday, September 09, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UKColourbyte and Epson will together bring a host of wide-format printers, RIPs and consumables to The Print Show, a new event for the industry taking place this autumn. 

Centrally located at Birmingham's NEC from October 13th to 15th 2015, The Print Show is described by its organiser as 'a blueprint for the future'.

Colourbyte will have an extensive 66sqm stand at the inaugural show, with a full team from its Hemel Hempstead HQ heading to the Midlands with a selection of Epson wide-format printers. Specialists from Epson will also be on hand to answer questions about the machines.

On show will be the Epson SureColor SC-T5200 with scanner option and UltraChrome XD inks, a very popular printer for fast reprographics and CAD and GIS production. Alongside it will be the Epson SureColor SC-S70600, a wide-format eco-solvent printer with simultaneous white and metallic ink support, ideal for outdoor signage, POS and other graphics, and the Epson Stylus Pro 9890 for contract proofing, photography and indoor POS. The printers will be running EFI Fiery XF, Colorgate and Wasatch RIP software.

Colourbyte will also be demonstrating its Inkjet Imagesetter Solution: a combination of an Epson wide-format inkjet printer, polyester-based inkjet screen film PosiPrint and a Wasatch RIP for high-resolution, chemistry-free colour separations. 

In addition, Colourbyte will be giving Print Show visitors an opportunity to explore its huge range of substrates – from photo and proofing papers to canvas and wall coverings – in a selection of comprehensive sample books to take back to the print room. Printed media sample books will also be available showing examples of over 100 types of media, stocked by Colourbyte in its extensive warehouse, all printed on Epson printers.

"We're looking forward to the first Print Show and demonstrating our range of print equipment and consumables to businesses from both the wide-format and commercial print sectors," says Colourbyte Director Tim Stockley. "We have a massive range of media for those sectors, so anyone considering diversification will find plenty to inspire them at our stand (A32) – not least the specialist media sample books we're currently compiling.

"Many people don't realise the full potential of the printers they already have, so by giving them the chance to see the huge variety of media we sell, we hope to inspire our visitors to do more."

Phil McMullin, UK Sales Manager, Epson ProGraphics, adds: "Epson is delighted to be partnering with Colourbyte at The Print Show 2015 to showcase our key print solutions. Epson printers offer an array of profit-generating opportunities for print service providers (PSPs) and combined with Colourbyte's longstanding expertise in the commercial print environment makes their stand a must-visit location. Epson is committed to developing market-leading solutions for PSPs on a global basis and believes that The Print Show 2015 offers a unique opportunity for forward-thinking UK businesses to glimpse the future of digital print."

Colourbyte and Epson will be exhibiting at The Print Show at stand A32. For more information about Epson print solutions or any other large-format print product, please call 01442 262626 or visit www.colourbyte.co.uk.
