Press release from the issuing company

Chicago, Ill – GRAPH EXPO (Booth #4024) – September 24, 2004 – Agfa is showing its latest solutions for the wide format printing segment in the Graph Expo Wide Format Pavilion, booth #4080. Show attendees will be able to experience the new :Grand Sherpa Universal 64 and the :Sherpa 44m for poster printing. Additionally, Agfa’s senior marketing manager for digital solutions in North America, Deborah Hutcheson, will be giving the presentation, “Why Commercial Printers Need Wide Format Printing Devices” in the Wide Format Pavilion Theater on Monday, October 11th from 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. “Commercial printers could be using their inkjet devices to do smaller jobs they don’t use their presses to do – such as posters, vehicle wraps, banners, or other products,” Hutcheson said. “With inkjet as a printing device, printer can spend less time getting it right and more time in production, thereby increasing potential revenues,” she added. The solutions being shown in the Wide Format Pavilion are in addition to those being shown in Agfa’s main booth (#4024). There, attendees can learn more about the :Grand Sherpa 50, the :Sherpa 24m seven-color contract proofer and the new :Grand SherpaMatic double-sided imposition proofer. Additionally, Agfa will be showing various inkjet applications in the Innovation Gallery (Booth #4090), which features banners, package prototypes, outdoor signage, fine art prints, posters and more. In the Innovation Gallery, recent Agfa acquisition, Dotrix, will be exhibiting some of its unique custom printing applications for wood floor laminate to seed packages.
