We believe this will be a great catalyst for growth and expansion for both companies, and will bring benefits for our customers too, in this strategic new partnership, where cost efficiency and quality excellence is key to having the competitive edge.”
The Acuity LED UV Inkjet Hybrid Printer
The Acuity LED 1600 large format hybrid UV printer fully incorporates the cutting-edge technologies of the Fujifilm group, from the uniquely designed LED lamp unit to the high-precision / high-speed inkjet print-head, high-sensitivity UV ink, and many others.
At the heart of the Acuity LED 1600 lie ink, print-heads and LED-curing systems that were designed for each other. They are accurately tuned to give brilliant images, at speed, even on traditionally difficult to print media. The combination of technology is clever enough to allow the Acuity LED 1600 to print colour, white or varnish simultaneously in one pass without re-rolling.
It’s a state-of-the-art technology made possible by Fujifilm’s commitment to research and development. The result is an outstanding printer, which is flexible and reliable with minimal environmental impact.
Keys to Acuity LED 1600 performance are class-leading productivity of 20m ²/hr, high-quality from a wide color gamut and smooth tonal gradations, and the flexibility to print to a broad range of media up to 13 mm thick. These give you the ability to produce high value-added promotional tools, thus providing powerful support for expanding your business into new markets.
Fujifilm Uvistar High-speed UV Roll Printer
The Uvistar UV printer is packed with features to print super fast (5-meter @ 3,900 sq ft/hr) on flexible materials such as PE for billboard applications. The low ink build required to achieve strong colors achieves a very low ink cost-in-use, beating competition and easily justifying the switch from slower, high-cost solvent printers to high-speed UV prints.
Fujifilm Acuity Advance Flatbed UV Printer
With expertise in the areas of inkjet inks, print systems, and industrial print-heads Fujifilm has built a capability in inkjet technology that is second to none. The Acuity Series of wide format printers brings a range of true flatbed UV print solutions optimized for quality, speed, and production. The Acuity Advance platform, with the same ultra-high print quality, but adds a number of new features that improve production efficiencies and extend the versatility of this platform, allowing it to be used for a much wider range of applications.
The Inca Onset Series High End UV Flatbed Printer
The Inca Onset is one of the world’s fastest UV flatbed inkjet press printers. The Onset’s speed and quality is delivered by a massive array of 576 Spectra print-heads addressing a total of 73,728 inkjet nozzles in easy plug-in Inca print bars, supported by innovative head alignment systems. The Inca Onset has been designed with a high level of fault tolerance to ensure maximum print quality at exceptionally high print speeds and will change the way in which display graphics are produced, now and in the future.
The Onset S70 is one of the fastest digital flatbed presses in the world. It can print 6,458 ft2 per hour of satin matt finish and over 5100 ft2 of gloss print. Because Onset works at great speed, the cost per copy is lower than any other machine. Ease of operation and automation cut labour costs. With Onset, digital print is just as economical or better than screen or offset at up to 1,000 impressions. Digital pre-press is faster and cleaner than screen, and has none of the costs of materials and labour screen entails. And compared to offset, there are no plates to make.
With Onset’s direct-to-media printing, you have the capacity to produce every piece of rigid graphic print you see. Indoor / outdoor display is just the beginning. Onset is perfectly suited to a huge range of applications, which can unlock new, profitable work for your business.
Onset opens up two valuable markets:
- 3-D and packaging media
- Industrial media – glass, wood, metal and plastics up to 50 mm thick
Uvijet ink systems are renowned in the industry through Fujifilm’s high productivity wide format printers. Made using Fujifilm’s Micro-V ultrafine dispersion technology, enabling higher pigmentation, they produce strong, vibrant images and a wide colour gamut. The Acuity LED UV’s dedicated eight-colour UV LED ink set includes white and clear varnish. The Acuity LED 1600 can apply colours, white or varnish in a single pass, offering a host of creative possibilities.
UV Ink: The Future of Print
One of the most important trends which signage and graphix companies here in Africa and South Africa will face over the next couple of years is the move away from solvent inks. These alternatives include aqueous inks and UV curable inks, hailed as the ink of the future. The drawback of aqueous inks is their durability. UV ink on the other hand has superior durability properties, in comparison with conventional solvent inks.
UV inks are also much more environmentally friendly, with minimal odour in comparison. The UV ink adhesion properties allow direct print onto rigid substrates, thereby reducing production costs of printing onto vinyl, application onto substrate and time. UV is one of the most cost effective inks, using LED-curing technology, like Fujifilm and Mimaki of Japan, which have been developed over the past couple of years.
Fujifilm Technology and GSW
Fujifilm technology and their diverse product offerings, are able to offer a solution to meet the growing demand for increased print quality, higher production speeds and a lower cost of production in order for the machines to be used in a wider range of applications.
From the customer’s perspective there is a demand to be able to print onto a wider range of substrates including material for garment printing, porcelain, ceramics, plastics, films and more. The developments in technology and inks from Fujifilm mean that the range of substrates and applications are only limited by the imagination.
Darryl Braithwaite, Sales Director of Graphix Supply World, adds:
“With the recent sale of the first Fujifilm Onset and Uvistar in Africa already, we are able to offer our clients the full solution unlike any other distributors, as we offer any customer, big or small, an affordable solution that will grow their business and maximize their profits.”

Fujifilm at FESPA 2013: http://www.largeformatreview.com/events/3919-fujifilm-planning-eye-catching-and-vibrant-fespa-2013-stand&sa=U&ei=d7h3UeX6BpCa0QWx_4DwAg&ved=0CAcQFjAA&usg=AFQjCNEXUGHfI8GwKiEZWnm_l9A8Dn43Sg
There are so many things to organise when planning a brand promotion. Whether you’re promoting a new product, your friend’s incredible band or an exhibition at the art gallery, one of the smartest ways to attract attention is by erecting an incredible, eye-catching display. Top graphics suppliers will tell you that a roll-up banner is a fantastic way to achieve this.
A roll-up banner will never go out of style. It can’t, the design is just too convenient. While large displays and promotional structures take up time, manpower and space, a roll-up is exceptionally lightweight, making it easy to transport and one of the easiest constructions to set up. The banner itself takes up very little storage and floor space yet when utilised correctly, it has the same impact as a large-scale promotional structure.
From the moment the quality digital printing equipment spits out the roll-up banner canvas, the print has an impact. With convenient scale and structure, these banners are easily customised to display your brand’s name, logo and unique advertising campaign. The use of vibrant colours, interesting illustrations and suitable large-scale text can create an eye-catching spectacle which attracts a large range of customers to your stand. A gorgeous, glossy protective layer will keep the banner dust-free and dazzling while banner frames and light boxes can be purchased to provide a professional touch – how can passers-by resist?
Roll-up banners have not only afforded businesses an innovative and rewarding way to promote their brand; they are also incredibly economical. Rather than paying for new promotional structures everywhere you set up shop, these mobile banners can travel with you to every location. Apart from their convenient travel-size features, most roll-up banners are coated in a protective gloss which keeps them in perfect condition – no matter the journey.
New website and competition encourages customer creativity
Amsterdam, March 28th 2013
Mimaki, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers, today unveiled its Fespa 2013 plans with the launch of a fun, customer-based website MyMimaki.com and a photo competition. The show at London’s ExCel runs from June 25 to 29 and Mimaki can be found on stand J5S.
To celebrate the unveiling of MyMimaki.com website, EMEA customers are being asked to get creative for a photo competition by uploading fun images of their Mimaki systems. Dubbed as the Me & My Mimaki Photo Contest, the competition offers a prize package worth more than €5,000.
“We wanted to use the platform of FESPA to highlight the very exciting results achievable on our portfolio of systems and help customers celebrate the capabilities possible, which is why we have launched MyMimaki.com,” said Mike Horsten, Marketing Manager of Mimaki EMEA. “Our solutions help customers be as responsive and proactive as possible but it is their energy and creativity that is vital to ensuring their long-term success.”
The emphasis on the fun is continued with the Mimaki-sponsored FESPA Wrap Cup Masters Series and the photo competition’s winner being flown to London with two sought-after VIP tickets to FESPA, paid on-site transportation, as well as FESPA gala invites.
Setting new standards
On display at Fespa 2013 will be the recently-launched JFX500-2131 grand format UV flatbed printer with LED curing and multiple ink options. With printing speeds up to 60 square meters per hour, the printer sets a new standard in speed, flexibility, quality and environmental sustainability.
Mike Horsten comments: “Incorporating a brand-new printhead and advanced LED curing, it brings new efficiency, quality and price/performance to the sign & graphics industry and wide format display marketplace. Its advanced head movement control produces an exceptionally high resolution image quality that can produce legible fonts as small as 2 points.”
The JFX500-2131 will be joined by Mimaki’s TS500-1800. With an unrivalled speed of 150 square meters per hour, it is the world’s fastest printer for transfer paper and is ideal for the textile market.
Also on the show will be Mimaki’s UJF-6042 A2-format flatbed printer that builds on the success of the smaller UJF-3042 series, while offering greater versatility and spectacular photo-quality print reproduction onto an almost limitless range of media. Furthermore, its larger print area opens up a whole new world of possibilities for end users in the higher volume production market, where even higher quality is demanded.
A creative mix
Promoting a mix of innovative technologies with social networking, Mimaki’s booth will feature its strong product portfolio, with latex/eco corner, innovative UV printing solutions, creative samples, and an “aquarium” where creative young students will show visitors job concept/design to realization.

Swift Displays Upgrade to Kongsberg i-XP24 Flatbed Cutter For Unmatched Speed and Performance
Swift Displays, an all-in-one, large format printer and manufacturer of innovative exhibition stands, fabric frames and display equipment, with head office in Cape Town, has upgraded to the ultimate cutting solution from Kongsberg. Head and shoulders above the rest, the Kongsberg cutting tables are internationally renowned for setting a new standard in digital finishing.
Offering a radically new level of productivity and throughput, the i-XP Series has the highest speed and acceleration of any finishing system on the market today. Able to finish both rigid and flexible materials, from a single unit to fullscale production, the i-XP redefines digital finishing and cutting.
For Swift Displays, the Kongsberg is the perfect cutting solution in supporting their client-focused work ethic of an innovative, can-do approach, focusing on meeting client’s needs and delivering on time, anytime. Their everything under-one-roof business setup keeps them agile, and allows them to respond instinctively to clients’ wishes.
Swift Displays has grown from strength to strength in the last couple of years,progressing from predominantly textile print production, to now offering innovative display solutions, POP and exhibition stands, using a variety of medias from rigid paper board, glass, wood, aluminium, textile, vinyl, plastics, canvas, cardboard and more.
Graphix Supply World is Swift’s number one supplier of all their digital technology requirements, supplying the complete solution including dye sublimation, solvent and UV large-format print and cut solutions. GSW also supplies Swift with all their ink, media, finishing solutions and 24-hour technical support and service.
Working closely with Swift Displays to support and facilitate growth in all areas of their company, supplying the Kongsberg i-XP24 will enable unparalleled turnaround times to support them in supporting their fast changing market demands.
In an increasingly competitive and challenging marketplace, reliable and costeffective machines are becoming more important, as opposed to using cheaper solutions, which ultimately end up costing the customers more in downtime, repairs and maintenance. Swift needed a state-of-the-art, fast,accurate and above all, flexible finishing table. Previously using an Aristo,
Swift upgraded to a Kongsberg, following continuous cutting problems on thick medias such as rigid paper board from Xanita.As international partners, Re-board, pioneers and original manufacturers of rigid paper board media, and Esko Kongsberg have a proven and strong trading relationship. Working together to ensure complete product assimilation, the Re-board recyclable board together with Kongsberg cutters, provide unmatched flexibility and product potential. Worldwide, inventive point of sale displays, exhibition stands, shop fitting installations and more, are created everyday, pushing the boundaries of previously inconceivable display solutions, using the combination of the two superior products.
GSW supplied Swift Displays with a UV flatbed SwissQprint Impala printer last year, which enabled them to branch into new industries, and crucially, facilitate a production capacity to provide a complete solution for their clients.
Supplying some of the top companies and brands in South Africa, Swift hand pick and secure the services of some of the most talented and dedicated people available in the industry, and recognise that the quality of their staff, together with their production capabilities, is one of the core reasons they are so successful.
Tony van den Bout, managing director of Swift Displays says:
“We have been extremely satisfied with the professional service that GSW has given to us over the past 7 years. From the first contact we had with Robert Franco, the managing director of GSW he understood what our business was about. In my experience when you want to grow and run a hassle-free business, then you need reliable suppliers. We bought our first Mimaki machine from Graphix Supply World, and are confident that the purchase of our new Kongsberg will help us to keep delivering and expanding. We have a strong and good relationship with Graphix Supply World and they continue to offer us support whenever we need any”. Being able to print and finish a broad range of materials in an efficient and timely fashion is essential to market penetration and customer satisfaction. The Kongsberg cutting tables can kiss cut, through cut or oscillate cut flexible, foam and fluted materials. They can crease or score for applications requiring folding, as well and route rigid materials. Speciality tools are also available for even the most challenging materials and applications.
The capacity of the finishing department often determines the volume of orders that can be promised. Bottlenecks constrain customer satisfaction and business growth. An Esko Kongsberg can quickly break through finishing bottlenecks and can open the door to the growth of your business.
The i-XP24 at Swift is equipped with an i-cut Vision pro vision registration system, which corrects cut lines for any print distortion, thereby reducing wastage, which has been a costly expense for Swift in the past. Shorter production cycle times, as well as a cost reduction of substrates, ink and finishing, permit profit potential to be maximized.
Laminators are one of those things that we often take for granted. We know that we use them to preserve any delicate paper items, but can’t imagine what life must have been like without them. Graphics suppliers all over the world advise some kind of laminate be placed over anything that we want to keep for a while, whether it is a poster, a calendar or a newspaper clipping. How do laminators work? How to they manage to seal the paper so securely that it is protected from the elements?
Laminators use a pair of rollers to apply the protective plastic film to the media or paper being processed. The precious results of digital printing equipment, such as timetables or certificates, are placed between these rollers and pushed through the laminator. The item being sandwiched between the sheets of plastic can be laminated on either one or both sides. Either hot or cold temperatures are used to apply the correct amount of pressure to the plastic, forcing it to stick together.
Hot lamination results in the adhesive on the plastic sheets melting, giving it the stickiness it needs to stick to the item being laminated. Most things can be laminated through this heat-applying method. For heat sensitive products such as photographs and faxes, cold lamination is a far safer option. The adhesives on cold lamination are activated by pressure, so they become sticky the moment that the rollers are placed on top of them.
Some documents are just too precious to not laminate. Birth certificates, wedding certificates and deeds of ownership, for example, are priceless pages that need to be laminated and preserved for as long as possible. No matter how big or how small, each and every document can be laminated. The most important decision to make when deciding to laminate, however, is whether to opt for hot or cold lamination.

One of the world’s most versatile fabrics is the humble canvas cloth. It has many uses, and is quickly becoming popular amongst graphics suppliers, as it responds well to digital printing equipment, making it an ideal material to print on. Furthermore, the qualities of the prints are improved greatly by printing on such a fabric, especially because as a whole, canvas is an extremely durable cloth.
Historically, canvas has been used over and over again for numerous purposes. The manufacturing of sails, marquees, tents and backpacks all have their roots planted firmly in the history of canvas. However, the most popular use for canvas is for painting. This dates back to centuries ago, when some of the greatest painters the world has ever seen painted on stretched canvas, the most common medium for which is oil paint.
Made from cotton, canvas is likely to have gained its popularity from its sheer convenience. Easy to care for and clean, the fabric is made from cotton. The cotton is woven by running the thread through two different strings of thread, creating a strong bond between the cotton and strengthening the canvas. Depending on the thickness of the cotton, the feel of the canvas may vary, with the two sides of the canvas feeling differently to each other.
The strength and durability of canvas is one of the reasons that it has become such a popular fabric. Furthermore, it requires very little maintenance and is easy to clean, very much unlike silks, satins and laces that require special care and attention. For centuries, canvas has been the go-to fabric for almost everything, from making kaftans to shoes – and it’s no wonder, and will, no doubt, continue to be used for centuries more.
Every business, no matter what it may be selling, needs to display its brand. One of the first things that business owners need to do is contact graphics suppliers, as the graphics associated with the brand when it first starts out is what consumers will remember it by. There are numerous display systems that can be used. Below, you will find our list of the most popular ones.
• Information panels: Not only do these attract attention because of their size, information panels also give potential customers an idea about what kind of company you may have. The tone, look and feel of information panels can say a lot about the business, and can create the best kind of attention.
• Light boxes: Like moths to a flame, eyes will be drawn to any light box. People generally just tend to look in the direction of a light, so if your company’s name is in that light box, it makes for one of the best forms of advertising. However, light magnifies any flaws, so make sure that you make use of the best digital printing equipment to get the highest quality prints.
• Wall mounted displays: Both elegant and informative, wall-mounted displays offer the option of unique finishes, meaning that your brand is likely to stand out from the rest of them. Furthermore, wall mounted displays allow for a great deal of creative leeway, as the space on the wall is generally bigger than the space used by other display systems.
• Digital media displays: If nothing else, the one thing that is bound to attract attention is a digital media display. Herein lies an opportunity for both printed display systems and digital ones, as a space for audio visual advertising is allocated amongst the printed advertising. Digital media displays afford a business the best of both worlds.
• Roller banner stands: One of the greatest things about roller banners is the fact that they are portable. This is an advantage not afforded by many other display systems. When designed and printed correctly, roller banner stands can be both attractive and informative – what more could one wants from a display system?
