Bringing super-wide printing into the game
Since 2004, Mammoth Media has produced billboards, banners, vehicle wraps, and many other super-wide format applications for its diverse customer base. With a portfolio that includes the HP Scitex Grand and HP Designjet 5500 in addition to the new high-quality flatbed printer, Mammoth Media has used HP technology to complete high-profile projects for the major-league sports teams based in Boston.
Notably, the company used its HP Scitex Grand to produce two larger-than-life banners, each measuring over eight stories tall (25' W x 84' H) and weighing in at 200 pounds, for Boston’s NHL team in a promotion searching for its biggest fan.
“We count on our technology, like the dependable HP Scitex Grand, to complete these unique projects and to keep our company running,” commented Rowell. “So far, the FB6300 has been running nonstop without a glitch since the final installation about three weeks ago. We can’t wait to show our customers firsthand how the new printer expands our offerings to help them achieve everything on their printing wish list.”
