SGIA 2016

by colorchrome in Colorchrome News 0 comments

It’s going to be a great year for wide-format printing! Last month Colorchrome Atlanta had the pleasure of attending the 2016 SGIA Trade Show at the amazing Las Vegas Convention center. Such a site was fitting for one of the largest and most accomplished trade shows of the year across any industry. This year we had a chance to speak with the industry’s most qualified and educated attendees and got a first look at some exciting new technology for bringing your wide-format graphics to life.

One of the most intriguing parts of the show could be found at the HP booth, where our sales rep Anthony Torres showed us some of the fascinating new things that HP is doing with latex printing directly onto fabrics.  Not only the classic polyesters but natural fabrics like cotton and linen as well!  As a firm believer in latex ink technology and the proud owner of multiple 3rd-generation HP latex printers, Colorchrome Atlanta is looking forward to the opportunities these new media will create in the digitally printed interior décor market and elsewhere.

Colorchrome also took some time to research the new cutting-edge innovations being made in wide-format flatbed UV printing.  After looking at flatbed printers by Canon, Fuji, Durst, SwissQPrint, and others, we are proud to announce a new addition to the Colorchrome Atlanta printer family, the SwissQPrint Nyala 2.  Without giving too many details just yet, expect to hear from us about the great new opportunities that this fantastic piece of machinery will be bringing to you in the next few months!

Of course, we took the time to visit many of our favorite vendors and customers as well.  Our friends at Quality Media and Laminating Solutions, LexJet, 3M, Beaver Paper, Dreamscape, Kern Lasers, and many others all brought a mind-blowing array of new technologies and products to SGIA 2016.  Colorchrome Atlanta is already applying these new innovations to fill our already diverse product offering with even more eye-catching graphics.

Curious to know more?  Please contact your sales rep or call us at 404-321-0009 for more information about the exciting new things happening at Colorchrome Atlanta and stay tuned for more blog posts to come!
