RTI partners with Mac Papers to expand the dealer network for the Vortex 4200 Wide-Format Printer

RTI Digital, part of the Kitchener-Ontario-based Reprographic Technology Group of Companies – and a leading industry supplier to the digital production print, wide format and label markets – has announced a partnership with Mac Papers. This reseller agreement will expand the dealer network for RTI-Digital’s Memjet-powered Vortex 4200 Wide-Format Printer and “empower a community of commercial print shops to benefit from industry-leading single-pass printing technology.” Mac Papers, based in Florida, is a leading provider of paper, packaging, wide-format printing, graphics, facility solutions and business products with 22 branch locations and 18 Mini-Mac store locations throughout a nine-state region. The company’s new partnership with RTI Digital “demonstrates its dedication to working with best-in-class suppliers to help businesses and consumers deliver quality results, improve efficiency and increase their bottom lines.”

“RTI Digital introduced the Vortex 4200 to North America through a partnership with the #1 Network of dealers last year, and we are pleased to enhance our presence with a formalized dealership arrangement with Mac Papers to cover the Southeast United States,” said Kevin Howes, Director of Wide Format, RTI Digital. “Mac Papers has a tremendous reputation and delivers a winning combination of sales support and service for the Vortex printer. Together, we’ll empower their customers to find new ways to increase profits.” The partnership with Mac Papers is preceded by new dealer appointments with Miller Blueprint of Austin, Texas and United Reprographics of Seattle, Washington.

The 42-inch-wide, full colour Vortex 4200 printer is based on Memjet’s unique Waterfall Print Technology that provides “revolutionary high print speed and superior quality.” Compared to traditional wide-format printers, the Vortex 4200 delivers faster job turnaround times and an attractive total cost of ownership. The Vortex prints at up to 12 inches per second (allowing print shops and in-plant customers to output up to over 9,000 sq. ft. per hour) in full colour for signage, POP, GIS and other wide-format applications.

RTI Digital and Reprographic Technology International (RTI) designs and develops digital print solutions based on Memjet technology. RTI has been serving the digital production and wide-format markets since 1990 and has been ISO certified since 2000. Its products are currently sold in more than 75 countries from facilities located in Canada, the USA and the UK.
