Hollywood Monster is well known for their innovative and dynamic approach to wide format digital printing. A visit to their facilities on the outskirts of Birmingham is enough to impress even the most hardened veterans of the signmaking community. When you step out from the offices onto the staired platform above the printing and finishing plant, you’d better hold on to your hat – it goes on for miles.

Using UV-curable inks has become the de facto way of bringing versatility into the overall productivity of wide-format print houses, display producers and sign-makers. However, there’s now an additional way to add to the investment benefitsof a new printer in the form of LED curing that brings extra flexibility, lower running costs and results in a greener working environment. 

If you’re looking for a sheet plastics distributor that can offer you a whole lot more, then you should be talking to Nick Warne and his team at NE Plastics. “Following our successful debut at FESPA in London, earlier this year, we have experienced a significant growth in sales; not only in our core business of flat sheet but also for our new roll media range and for trade fabrication work where good quality and fast turnaround is our mantra. “

If it’s cutting creativity you’re after, look no further than an AXYZ CNC router which is capable of doing much more than just profile cutting of 2D letters and shapes. These CNC routers have been specially developed for both the signmaking and print finishing industries. 

swissQprint, the manufacturer of high-end inkjet systems, had two printers on show for the first time at Fespa. Different configurations demonstrated the many and varied possibilities of these modular, precision-built machines. An all-new tandem function for non-stop printing and a reinforced roll to roll option to allow printing of flexible media up to 3.2 m wide were among the presentation highlights. On top of that, the Swiss also launched the 9 picolitre droplet for their printers.


How Katz display boards can provide a real alternative to PVC. In late June London will be hosting the world's premier exhibition for the wide-format print industry, Fespa 2013. As the event approaches, The KATZ Group – which is headquartered in the town of Weisenbach in Baden-Württemberg, Germany – is attracting increasing attention for its display boards, which offer an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to foam boards, PVC boards and similar items.


From the moment you step off the plane at Heathrow, to the second you walk into ExCeL London, your journey to FESPA 2013 will be full of print inspiration.

Intimate knowledge and experience of inkjet development has allowed Fujifilm to understand the performance requirements needed for inkjet inks.
