Allen Signs has bought the world’s first Fujifilm Acuity Prime Hybrid to support its efficiency and expansion plans.
The family-run wide-format business was established in 1965, and since then, has been producing a variety of signage applications. Managing director David Allen said his interest in the Acuity Prime Hybrid, which was released earlier this year, stemmed from hearing of its versatility and economical ink consumption.
“Due to our familiarity with hybrid platforms, we sought the Acuity Prime Hybrid as an opportunity to explore the Fujifilm brand further. The printer has now allowed us to carry out our normal production with minimal issues and excellent quality and ink performance,” said Allen.
He added: “Fujifilm has been an absolute breeze to deal with. The installation and the training were extremely quick and efficient. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Acuity Prime Hybrid printer will allow us to expand our business in the future.”
The machine is being used to print on wall coverings, direct to board and to metallic surfaces.
Matt Ryder, print specialist at Allen Signs, said: “We tried a job on the new Fujifilm machine, and instantly, it tracked. It was perfect. As for materials, we are yet to come across a substrate that doesn’t work.”
