Fresh Color is Large-Format DONE RIGHT!

Over the years many clients asked about producing signs/ posters/ banners/ POS that we can’t print on our NexPresses (because they’re too large or on materials that NexPresses don’t print).

We referred clients to local large-format shops, but kept hearing that others “just don’t get it” as Fresh Color does: so-so service, okay quality, and “rush” charges when clients need something really fast—if they could even get it when needed.

We became interested in large-format printing and started to look for equipment similar to our Kodak NexPresses in terms of print quality, reliability, capability, and sustainability.

We think of ourselves as the Creative’s Digital Printer, so we decided we’d get into large-format only if we could produce spectacular work that appealed to clients who want to really push the envelopes of quality and creativity. We found exactly what we wanted in the Oce’ Arizona 360XT UV printer and Zund G3 cutter/router that we installed early in 2012! Things took off, and we’ve added a lot of large-format equipment since we started. Now we can easily produce superb large-format projects in a day or two, on any material you can imagine, with a full range of finishing choices.

OCE’ ARIZONA 360XT & FUJI ACUITY LARGE-FORMAT UV PRINTER:

  • World-best photo-realistic print quality using ToshibaTec 8-level grayscale heads to print variable-size 6-42 picoliter droplets.
  • Huge color gamut for vibrant, high-impact brand color.
  • Opaque White Ink so we can print white as a spot color on colored substrates, under-print 4-color process on non-white materials, and overprint backlits on transparent media.
  • High Definition print mode for fine feature reproduction and ultra-crisp/clean 2- and 3-point text—ideal for close-viewing and technical/industrial applications.
  • Light cyan and light magenta for high-impact expanded-gamut printing.
  • Ultra-fast turn times because prints are dry and ready to use as soon as they’re printed.
  • VariaDot software for highly uniform solids (great for banners and large-area solids).
  • Prints full-bleed 50” X 100” boards, as well as oversize 5' X 10's—all the way to 8' X 10'!
  • Prints rigid and roll materials.
  • Prints boards up to 1.9” thick.
  • Vacuum table for precise 2-sided registration (or double-hitting to increase color density).
  • Direct printing eliminates the need for protective lamination. Saves time and money, and is more sustainable!
  • Direct-print materials are more durable than laminated-and-mounted roll materials.
  • ONYX Production House RIP software has superb color management to satisfy the most discerning clients, Pantone- and ICC-certified.
