Fastsigns of Burlington, Ontario continues to expand its products and services, improve print quality and reduce turnaround times with the installation earlier this year of a swissQprint Impala 3 Wide-Format UV Printer. The shop can produce signage and banners in virtually any shape and size using a variety of media for indoor and outdoor use. Other services include graphic design, digital displays and digital content services – including the design and creation of static images, motion graphics and interactive content supported by ongoing content updating. The company also specializes in traditional POP displays, vehicle wraps, wayfinding systems and much, much more.
Owned and operated by General Manager Diane Henderson and Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Henderson, the shop needed “a real workhorse that we knew would last a long time,” recalled Diane. “These machines have been in the field for a while, and rarely need service. It’s a machine you can really depend on.”
The compact, user-friendly 2.5-m x 2-m Impala 3 flatbed from swissQprint can produce “museum quality” prints up to 7 colours on virtually any substrate at a maximum speed of 1,938 ft.2/hour, with little or no loss in ink density. The backlit prints it produces on both rigid and flexible substrates rival those of high quality aqueous printers and dye-sublimation devices, said the OEM. “Also, when we buy a new printer, it’s great to share its capabilities with our customers,” Diane added. “So when they come to us, they know that we have the best technology for all of their signage and visual communications needs – and that positively reflects on their own brand as well.”
