Founded over quarter of a century ago, Derwent Displays has invested more than £1.75m in the last two years to underpin its strategy of employing the latest technology to continue its growth trajectory whilst enhancing customer service and experience. Part of this growth strategy is to develop new market segments beyond its already expansive reach that includes design & prototyping, print and finishing, in-house assembly, packaging and project delivery.

As a commemoration of International Women’s Day, it’s the perfect time to celebrate our newest female franchisee to the Signs Express network. Mayura Joshi recently became the Owner of Signs Express (Colchester & Chelmsford), celebrating the opening of her centre at the end of 2018.

Since its inception in 1995, Print On in Cheshire has evolved from a high-street photocopy shop to a digital print-on-demand company producing everything from posters and signage through to pop-up banners, stationery, die cut boxes, PoS displays, FSDUs, acrylic boards and general large format print and finishing. To support this growth, the Cheadle company has moved to a new purpose-built facility and filled it with the latest print and finishing technology, including a DYSS digital cutter from AG/CAD.

Back in 2009, Lee Crew and Nick Lindwall spotted a gap in the market – an opportunity to provide a high standard, large format digital printing service in South Wales. Starting out in a print room less than 20sq/m in size and with just one 1600mm-wide solvent printer, they hit the ground running. Ten years on and the company is celebrating a yearly turnover of over £2m.

The sign and graphics industry is now more accessible than it’s ever been. With a little investment, a workshop and a design software package, almost anyone can become a graphics specialist overnight. However, even with the resources readily available to the new starter, there’s one thing they can’t buy in a shop – experience.

Ringwood, UK-based JCT Developments is expanding with a recently installed EFI Vutek HS 125 F4 hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll printer from EFI. The printer allows the company to increase printing capacity and focus on new business.

The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading authority in sustainable printing certifications for print manufacturers, is pleased to announce thousands of dollars in cost savings and more than 35 tons of recycling achieved as a result of new partnerships and innovations at certified facility, Designtex.  

Lancashire-based Cristex Composites Materials (Cristex Ltd) has recently expanded its product offering with the addition of a new Zund G3 precision cutting system, enabling the company to offer its customers an enhanced cut quality and precision service. Installed in January 2019, Cristex says the Zund G3 digital cutter has accelerated the production process and increased productivity.
