Speedpro Imaging Chooses EFI H1625 Wide Format Printers
Published on March 22, 2016
Boris Katsnelson, CEO of SpeedPro Imaging, with 125 wide format locations in 31 states and an affiliate in Canada with an additional 40 locations, shares thoughts with Senior Editor Cary Sherburne about why the company is introducing EFI hybrid wide format printers to its production platform.
Several franchises in the SpeedPro Imaging studio network have installed the EFI H1625 LED wideformat printer. The installations follow extensive testing and validation at SpeedPro Imaging’s Centennial CO. headquarters. In 2015 SpeedPro partnered with EFI to help franchises grow business with wideformat.
“We saw an opportunity in the marketplace because this hybrid printer is really attainable to our franchise partners at a good price point, and it opens a lot of doors with the types of applications we can deliver,” according to Boris Katsnelson, CEO of SpeedPro Imaging. “We like the white ink on board, which is a strong feature, and the printer itself also is a really efficient machine. EFI has been a great partner for us as well.”
SpeedPro franchises have installed six units to date and and two more coming on line this quarter.

Cal Poly Professor Brian Lawler explains what designers should be thinking about to serve the needs of those who don't see color the same way most of us do. He recommends a process for using "considerate color" that allows the people with color vision defects to still see contrast and tonal difference in colors selected for graphic projects such as roadmaps and charts where color itself is a factor in understanding the content.
