Scot Signs is launching two new online businesses - Weprintwallpaper.co.uk and Weprintbanners.co.uk- off the back of a HP Latex 1500 installation.
Founded in 1997, Livingston-based Scot Signs offers sign-making, wide-format printing and garment printing across a range of sectors and is an established provider of print and signage to a number of airports. It has recently added a number of new services in relation to its work in aviation, including building services, electrical, flooring and joinery, with the company having increased its workforce to 27 employees to support this expansion. It is now launching two new businesses focusing on banner printing and wallpaper production.
Installed in November 2020, the HP Latex 1500 - supplied by Perfect Colours – runs alongside Scot Signs' HP Latex 560 and HP FB750 machines, both of which were installed at the company's site in Livingston in Scotland two years ago.
Mark Duguid, director at Scot Signs, said the HP Latex 1500 will be a critical component in its new businesses - due to launch imminently. "Now we have the backing of the new HP, we have the confidence to enter these markets," Duguid said.
Aside from supporting the launch of the new businesses, the HP Latex 1500 will also be put to work alongside the other HP Latex machines on Scot Signs' existing services.
"As well as way-finding and wide-format prints for the airports, we carry out print work and installation for two of the largest media advertising companies in the country and produce a lot of wide-format for wall coverings and wall panel wraps," Duguid said. "Aside from this work, we also produce a lot of backlit textile and PVC light boxes for large advertisement spaces inside and outside the airports."
