Blueorange give OKI the green light

Having recently made the decision to replace their wide format digital printer, General Manager at Blueorange Laurie Randall found it difficult to make a decision on the best manufacturer and supplier to opt for. “Having already been let down by a well-known manufacturer I looked in the sign magazines and found Signmaster Systems advertised. With a little investigation, I found that they had great customer feedback so made contact with them.

Right from first contact with Signmaster, their service has been absolutely first class from order placement to delivery. The engineer arrived on site as scheduled and from the minute the OKI M-64s was unloaded it was very clear that we were dealing with a totally different beast to our previous machine. The build quality is much higher, industrial strength and much more robust metal components as opposed to a different supplier / manufacturer of machine that we had had a previous disappointment with.
The engineer clearly knew his stuff and pointed out the different areas of the printer that would need routine maintenance checks. These were very simple but have the added benefit of a PC program that prompts the operator to remember to carry them out.
For anybody thinking of buying a wide format digital printer I would absolutely recommend that you take a look at OKI before you make any decisions, the OKI prints at a higher quality and faster speeds and once seen you will be sold on it. I would also add that Signmaster Systems are the people to buy it from, service is first class, pricing is value for money and absolutely nothing is too much trouble.”

RJ Signs and Graphics ramps up production with OKI ColorPainter M-64s

Since purchasing their OKI ColorPainter M-64s from Signmaster Systems in July 2016, Managing Director Jon and the team at RJ Signs and Graphics have never looked back.

Cheshire based RJ Signs & Graphics have been producing high quality signage and vehicle graphics for a range of businesses across the UK since 1982. They are vehicle graphics specialists and leading sign makers in Manchester and Cheshire.

Jon says “The OKI ColorPainter M-64s is such a well thought out piece of kit. Everything from the speed, quality of print and ease of use is so much better than what we have had before. We can use a wider range of different media now which gives us so many different options.

The M-64s uses 1.5 ltr ink cartridges but lays less ink down so the running costs are so much less. Seven colours mean the print quality is incredible! Solid colours look almost like an off the shelf vinyl.

Deadlines are so much easier to hit. A banner job that would have taken us 2 days previously is now done in half a day with the OKI. You can literally put a banner on to print, go make a coffee, come back and it’s done!”

ColorPainter M-64s Stands Out For Exhibition Equipment

Exhibition Equipment are a Stratford-Upon-Avon based company who specialise in building stands and print graphics for exhibitions and events around the UK and Europe.

With an increase in production and increasingly tighter deadlines, Managing Director Greg Bruner sought some advice from Signmaster and was informed about the OKI ColorPainter range.

Greg says “Signmaster have been fantastic, we bought the machine entirely based on trust and we have not been disappointed, the OKI is a great bit of kit! We are now able to deal with late orders quickly and our graphics are exceptionally good quality. I like that you perform the daily maintenance yourself so you can keep an eye on what’s going on inside the machine. It’s all very simple and means you have a machine worth more money when you come to invest in a newer model.

We genuinely couldn’t speak highly enough of our printer and the team at Signmaster. The ColorPainter M-64s is by far the best machine that we have had in every way. For us it was a big investment and a lot of money to find but I’m glad I made the outlay. The M-64s does the job so much better than its competitors and it doesn’t cost a lot to run. We are so impressed with the overall package, it’s certainly paying dividends for us and our clients!”

Rocket Visual Solutions Ltd Launch into Higher Production with ColorPainter

Director James Fidoe invests in a ColorPainter to meet increasing demand in production.

Rocket Visual Solutions Ltd, based in Stratford-upon-Avon is a large format Print and Graphics Company specialising in POS, Vehicle Graphics, Boats, Wraps, Signage, Work Wear, Exhibition Graphics and Hoardings.

After experiencing some problems with their existing all-in-one print and cut machine, James asked for some advice from the team at Signmaster and was informed about how the OKI ColorPainter could benefit his business. “I was in need of a printer that could keep up with the high production and increasingly tighter deadlines and the OKI seemed to tick all the boxes.

Since installing the OKI ColorPainter W-54s, I have been impressed with the performance and reliability, not forgetting the colour output and quality which is fantastic. The advice from Signmaster has been great over the years with almost instant solutions!”

 Dan with his OKI ColorPainter W-64s

Motion Graphix Ltd confirms their OKI ColorPainter is the best investment since opening the business!

Managing Director Dan Kenyon says “It is very difficult to have total trust in new brands and equipment when making such a large investment but I really couldn’t have asked for more from the OKI ColorPainter

The Lancashire based company specialise in all aspects of signage, banners, magnetics and vehicle graphics and decided to book in for a demo at Signmaster to upgrade their HP Designjet.

Dan says “the demo day at Signmaster really opened my eyes. We had a wide choice of different brands and models but the OKI Colorpainter really stood out from the crowd. The quality and production speed of these machines was incredible compared to its competitors and so it was an easy choice to purchase the OKI ColorPainter W-64s.

Since buying the OKI our business has totally transformed.  We are turning jobs around much faster whilst increasing quality and so increasing profits as a result.  We have carried out work for Matalan, P&O Cruises, Marks & Spencer's and we have recently been awarded the contract to rebrand lorry trailers for B&M Bargains in July so I am one very happy boss!”

IGG Creative Ltd Double Production with Their ColorPainter M-64s

Digital printing company IGG Creative Ltd produce a wide range of projects for clients all over the country and the work varies from business cards to full display stands. IGG had previously owned a Roland LEJ-640 UV flatbed printer but made the decision to invest in their ColorPainter M-64s and Rollover flatbed applicator in June 2015 after seeing the workflow benefits as well as the dramatic cost savings. Director Ian says “We chose the ColorPainter for its speed and quality and we haven’t been disappointed as we have doubled our production capabilities and gained a number of new business wins. The colour output is fantastic, blacks are true blacks and the skin tones are truly life like so we feel so proud of what we are producing. I have no complaints what-so-ever regarding the reliability of our M-64s, it simply works, all day, every day.”

Seymour Sign and Print Ltd Converts to ColorPainter

Seymour Sign & Print Ltd is a small family run business based in Salford. The company provides high quality vehicle livery and digital print solutions to a wide range of clients from multi national PLC’s to local independent traders.

With a growth in business and after experiencing a few issues with the print quality and speed from their maturing wide-format printer, Managing Director David Hammond decided it was time for an upgrade.

Following a visit to Signmaster Systems in April 2015, David and the team decided to purchase a ColorPainter W-64s by OKI. “After seeing the build quality of the OKI, coupled with the speed and density of the colours, we were converted! The ColorPainter not only printed faster and more vibrantly than anything we had seen before but the prints were dry enough to handle straight off the machine. Our customers commented on the colour outputs immediately after we installed the machine. Overall the ColorPainter W-64s is a solid, reliable piece of kit and we have nothing but praise for the OKI machines and the staff at Signmaster Systems.”

Walkden Sign Centre gives nothing but praise for their ColorPainter

The Walkden Sign Centre Ltd in Manchester is a small, family run business established by David Turner and son Alex Turner.  The company specialise in banners, signs, posters, window tinting, vehicle wraps and t-shirt printing.

After experiencing various problems with their wide-format printer, Managing Director Alex decided it was time for an upgrade.

“We had heard about the OKI wide-format machines through the industry so contacted Signmaster to book a demonstration. We both agreed the ColorPainter W-64s was a far superior machine than any other in our price range and so we didn’t hesitate to invest in an OKI printer.

We have been running the ColorPainter for 5 months now and have nothing but praise for the machine. The great thing about the OKI is that it is so versatile, from banners to wallpapers and long runs of vinyl - it is FANTASTIC!!! Even the maintenance only takes 2 minutes every week.

The service from Signmaster has been excellent. We have been in business for a long time, dealing with many companies who promise you support but fail to deliver. Signmaster always deliver what they promise - every member of staff from sales throughout the install and aftercare has been spot on.”

 Award Banners with OKI ColorPainter H3

ColorPainter H3-104s is a Winner for Award Banners and Signs

Award Banner and Signs Ltd had been looking to find a replacement for their aging Roland AJ1000 but couldn’t find anything on the market to fit their requirements and budget until they saw the new H3-104s on Signmaster’s stand at Sign & Digital UK 2015.

The Leeds based company have been trading since 1995 and specialise in the manufacturing of banners and various large format graphic products.

Managing Director Michael Page says “With the majority of our customers being design agencies, we are under more pressure to make sure branding adheres to specific pantone colours. We were having trouble matching some colours with our current printers so we had to manually change files to achieve the desired results.  We had already heard good reports about the ColorPainter and this machine just seemed to tick all the boxes.

Since installing the ColorPainter our production speed has increased massively. We can achieve ever more demanding deadlines with great results whilst saving time as well as waste. The CP_Manager software is brilliant. Being able to check ink levels and do maintenance without having to go through all the sub menus is great. Overall the machine is built to a good standard; the covers are solid, sturdy and not flimsy like some other printers.”

ColorPainter Sets Spectrum Signs Apart with Superior Speeds and Print Quality

Established in 1984, Spectrum Signs & Graphics based in Stoke-on-Trent specialise in Signage, Vehicle Livery fleet work and large format digital print.  The print company has a reputable client base including Bristol Street Motors, Enza Mercedes and the Merlin Group which qualifies them to undertake and get involved in a lot of interesting and unusual projects for Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Chessington and Legoland Theme Parks.  

Due to the growing demand in business, Owner and Business Partner Darren Moore decided it was time to upgrade their wide-format printer so contacted Signmaster to book a demonstration. Darren said “We were so impressed by the OKI ColorPainter printers; it was obvious the speed and quality of print was far superior to our previous large-format printers but still retaining a comparable price to other brands on the market.  The colour output is excellent with 7 print heads compared to 1 on the Mimaki, we were sold with the ColorPainter M-64s.

The superior speed of the Colorpainter allows us to get our product installed and out of the door quicker so we can get on to the next job. The print quality is still way above what we’ve experienced with previous machines even though our output is higher.

This is the third printer we’ve purchased from Signmaster not to mention all our plotter and Signlab needs.  We’ve always found Signmaster to offer excellent backup and telephone support throughout a long business relationship.”

ColorPainter M-64s proves to be a scorching investment for Sun Signs

Sun Signs are a Kendal based sign making company who specialise in producing high quality vehicle wraps, shop fascia’s and exhibition graphics.  Manager Liam Clark was looking to replace his Mutoh Blizzard and so attended the Sign and Digital exhibition in 2015 to see what was on the market. Liam says “We visited Signmaster’s stand and were really impressed with the ColorPainter M-64s by OKI. The quality of the print is excellent and we also felt this printer gave the best quality of print/price per metre compromise.  

After the show we received some further samples from the ColorPainter M-64s and decided to purchase the machine from Signmaster Systems in January 2016. The price included installation, delivery and training which has been very good.  Any problems in understanding the new printer were quickly dealt with by Signmaster’s Technical Engineers. We are more than happy with the quality and reliability of our OKI and in all honesty I wish we had bought this printer a few years ago!”

ColorPainter Earns Rave Reviews From Sign n Print

Since purchasing their ColorPainter W-64s from Signmaster Systems in February 2015, Ali and the team at Sign n Print have been blown away with the performance and reliability of their new machine. Sign n Print pride themselves on providing the complete solution for companies offering a graphic design, printing, signage and web service. Ali says “The ColorPainter has allowed the business to increase turnaround time on printing whilst maintaining a high quality of product. The performance of the OKI is without question the best from any wide format printer I have used and the build quality is also one of the best I have come across. Every component is well thought out, for example the printhead, most printers I have seen are exposed and susceptible to damage whereas the ColorPainter is enclosed in a metal casing preventing this damage. I would highly recommend this printer and the service from Signmaster Systems has been exquisite. They are professional and also maintain the customer relations after the purchase.”

Success is Brewing for Morgan Signs & Design

Morgan Signs & Design Ltd specialise in brand management and implementation. Largely working direct for the main breweries and pub operators across the hospitality sector, they offer site surveys through to installation with strong design and customer service.

Traditionally Morgan Signs&Design have sub-contracted their digital printing out to other companies but with business on the increase, they felt the demand to set up the facility in house. Managing Director Gareth said “We had a day at Signmaster HQ and found their advice was very professional and informative giving us confidence in the company and products on show. We were so impressed with the ColorPainter W64s, not only the build and robustness but also the high quality of the printing, particularly the density of the black. The OKI has forced us to think outside the box in terms of what we can offer our clients such as banners, POS and bespoke wallpapers and has also enabled us to react quicker to panic jobs.  All in all the Colorpainter performs better than expected and the advice, training and additional support we have received from Signmaster throughout setting up our new in-house facility has been great.”
