(June 04, 2008) C2 Media, the leading supplier of professional media graphics and visual communication solutions to the retail, consumer products, fashion and entertainment industries today announced the installation of the first Inca Digital Onset printer in the United States.
C2 Media, with 9 locations across the US and Canada, has grown and expanded over the last 25 years by offering their high profile clients the widest range of integrated marketing and visual solutions available. Technology advancements coupled with strong customer support and manufacturing expertise have fueled growth. This investment in the state of the art Inca Digital Onset adds to an already wide range of Ultra Jet Direct and other printing services provided by the company and will provide higher quality, more cost effective promotional/point of sale/retail materials for some of the most respected and successful companies in the country.
The Inca Onset represents a significant advancement in flatbed print technology. The Onset is the first fully automated UV cured digital flatbed press capable of handling print sizes up to 10.5x5 feet. Edge to edge printing technology allows full bleed images to be printed on range of substrates up to 5/8" thickness, with minimal set up time. The combination of Inca Digital's engineering and imaging expertise with Fujifilm Sericol's experience of UV ink formulation results in world class machine reliability, excellent image quality and high print speeds.
Partnered with Fujifilm and Inca, the C2 Media development and manufacturing team has been intimately involved in the testing of a number of Sericol inks and Inca printers. The delivery of the Onset continues this partnership. David Manning, C2 Media CEO, sees tremendous potential , "The Onset coupled with Sericol Inks managed by our talented production team has produced some spectacular looking prints. The colors are vibrant and saturated, the uv inks are durable and time to print is incredibly fast. We see a great opportunity not only with existing retail applications, but we now have the ability to offer signage customization allowing clients the ability to finely target their message. This will revolutionize the business and the industry".
C2 Media will operate the new Onset in its 77,000 square foot state of the art facility in Englewood, CO. Online tours of the facility and more information about the Onset or other C2 Media products and services are available through C2 Media Account Managers and the website.
