Astron group, based in Prague, started as a small studio in 1993. Now, with a 300-strong team, it is a major player in the Central European print market, offering a wide range of products; from magazines and leaflets; to banners, POS, and illuminated and 3D signage. Its customer base covers the public sector, small local businesses, and large national and multinational brands. One area the company highly prides itself on is its high-quality sign making, and in late 2019 it invested in an Onset X3 HS from Fujifilm, with High Five and Dual Flex robotics, to produce exceptional print work in the fastest possible time.

Family-run large-format print specialist Bamboo Creations has invested in a new HP Latex 800W printer to improve its productivity and further enhance its environmental credentials.

Bath-based branding and signage business Freestyle Designs has been established for 14 years, specialising in a range of services from standard shop signage projects to large rebrands, vehicle graphics, wallcoverings and vinyl graphics, and more. Founder and Managing Director Jayson Godridge loves to keep the business moving forward, whether that’s staying up-to-date with the latest technology and investing in new kit, or targeting larger scale, higher volume work. “We knew we weren’t going to be able to achieve that with our current machinery,” explains Jayson.

Earlier this year, London-based American artist, Loreal Prystaj, used Phototex self-adhesive fabric as a key component in her unique art installation, Nude Pepper, in the ‘Around the Table’ exhibition at No.20 Arts Gallery in Islington, London.

Dublin-based print and signage production company Just Print has praised the impact of its new HP Latex 800W, saying that the printer has enabled it to expand its service offering and allowed the business to move ahead of competitors in a busy market.

Founded in 2007, Paddock Digital Printing BV is a print production company, based in The Netherlands, that specialises in producing indoor and outdoor signage. Though a relatively small company, with just ten employees, all of its products are produced entirely in-house, from start to finish. The company invested in an eight channel Acuity Ultra 5044 in 2020, to future-proof its business and help it to remain competitive.
