What’s having the greatest impact on your business at the moment?
Having a clear direction, rather than opting for a scattergun approach. By identifying the kind of customers we like to work with, and the work that we enjoy producing, we’re able to deliver a higher level of service to those customers.

For almost 30 years Omni, and sister company K2 Screen, have been producing printed products for major corporate clients, event organisers and high-end fashion retailers, as well as one-off original artworks for internationally renowned artists and institutions. I spoke with project director Rebecca Cooper about the rise of digitally printed wallcoverings as part of the company’s offering.

Manor Signs in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, has run a variety of wide-format printers in its time, with latex machines its current focus. The company recently replaced a HP Scitex FB500 with a HP Latex R1000 Plus, which it runs alongside a Latex 330. I talked with MD Gareth Craythorne about the latest investment and his reasons for making it.  

Greens Signmakers in Hull has been around a while - it was founded as a traditional sign writing operation by Reg Green back in 1963. When his grandson Lawrence Green took over the helm in 2018 his first focus was to refurbish the printroom and extend the company’s wide-format offering. The newest addition is a HP R2000 Latex printer. I talked with Lawrence about that investment, and what it means for the company’s development. 

JKN Digital in Preston was formed in 1988 and is now a full service exhibition and events graphics specialist, and a trade printer. It was an early adopter of HP latex technology and now runs only such printers - three L570 roll-to-roll printers and an R2000 flatbed machine. So why all the investment in HP kit?
