DIS blasts into the new decade with recognition of consultancy-style approach supported by industrial-level productivity and ultimate print quality
CMYUK, Shrewsbury – CMYUK has installed an EFI-VUTEK h3 digital printer at DIS in Wolverhampton. The new printer will support this multi-award winning company with industrial-level productivity, superlative print quality, rock solid reliability and greatly expanded capacity.
The h3 is a significant addition to DIS replacing a 2m wide, EFI VUTEk H2000 Pro, and an EFI Quantum 3+ UV printer. Its arrival coincides with the company being voted ‘Small Business of the Year’ at the annual prestigious Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards, renowned for its competitiveness and extensive judging process.
“We were really delighted with the Small Business Award win because it endorses our approach,“ said DIS MD Mark Bradley. “We deliver so much more than just a sign company – we’re unique because we act as partners working in collaboration with agencies and clients. Our customers have the creative vision and we guide the application. We bring as much as we can to the equation. Whether its huge wall wraps, anamorphic graphics, projected imagery or digital screen installations, we want to create the best job without compromise, always meeting the tightest of budgets to deliver unique impactful work. The addition of the EFI VUTEk h3 complements our values exactly.”
The printer has been immediately impactful. “The first job we did on this machine was for a huge interior project in the City of London. The imagery coming off the printer was so vibrant, with such a high print quality that it almost looked 3D,” said Bradley.
“We’ve had numerous machines but never once have we stood back and said, ‘Wow, this is something different’. When clients were walking past the installation, they were literally stopping in their tracks. The output on the h3 is amazing,” he added.
Long term VUTEk user
Robin East, Group Director, CMYUK said, ”The EFI VUTEk h3 has been reimagined and reengineered from the ground-up and the results are stunning in terms of productivity, quality and capability. This quality will be well received by the high calibre clients DIS service.”
“It is extremely reliable, easy to use and is proven to increase profitability. What’s more the H3 offers several environmental benefits. As a hybrid, LED printer, this printer is in a class of its own,” said Sue Hayward, Senior Digital Sales Consultant at CMYUK.
Historically DIS works with agencies 60 per cent of the time, and the rest directly with clients including Rolls Royce, VW, D&AD Awards and Virgin Active. And with the H3 able to offer blistering production speeds of over 220 sq.m per hour at ultra high resolution as standard, DIS will now be adding trade services to its roster.
“We’ve never done much trade work,” said Bradley. “We’ve never run our machines 24/7 flat out. We look after our printers, as they are very important assets to us. On the other hand the EFI VUTEk h3 has so much capacity we will be looking for trade work. It’s opened up so much more volume, and greater flexibility as far as the wide range of materials you can run on it. We’ve future-proofed ourselves,” he said.
The PONGS® factor
Said Bradley: “The capacity of the EFI VUTEk h3 enables us to push for more volume of work, whether it's fabric or whether it’s more traditional. We are growing in all areas, so we are outputting fabric-based backdrops and we are also printing Foamex, Dibond hoardings and signage fabrications. As our website demonstrates, we can create whatever you can imagine, and with the h3 we have the capacity to create so much more.”
