Epson Print Show winner LFR

For the second year running Epson is donating a SureColor SC-T5200 large format printer as the star prize in The Print Show’s Golden Ticket Prize Draw which will take place during the event (11th – 13th October 2016, NEC, Birmingham). The 36-inch wide high-speed, four-colour inkjet printer will be presented to one lucky winner on the day of the draw.

Last year’s winner of the aqueous SureColor SC-T5200 was Emma Tomlinson from Carton Edge in Coventry. She was delighted with her prize and since installation – and with a little training provided by Colourbyte and Epson - the printer has been used to produce the company’s exhibition stand display graphics and posters, as well as some marketing brochures and flyers.

Designed to produce a wide range of high-quality display graphics, CAD and GIS applications, the SureColor SC-T5200 printer fits perfectly into design, commercial print, copy shop, architecture, building, engineering, retail and education environments. The combination of Epson’s PrecisionCore TFP printheads and UltraChrome XD pigment ink in the SC-T5200 delivers industry-leading output quality and precise, repeatable performance. UltraChrome XD pigment ink is smudge and water resistant and delivers deep blacks and crisp, dense lines — ideal for technical graphics — and the vibrant colours necessary for high-quality prints and posters, on coated and non-coated media — including board up to 1.5mm thick. To maximise productivity, it features large-capacity ink cartridges and high-speed printing - an A1 print takes just 28 seconds!

Visitors to the Colourbyte stand will also see a range of models from Epson’s SureColor Series including the 64-inch SC-S80600 9/10 colour eco-solvent signage printer and 24-inch SC-P7000 eight colour, large format aqueous proofer/printer. Also on display will be the ColorWorks C7500 Series label printer which redefines endurance and reliability for high-speed colour label printing specifically developed for use in the commercial-grade, industrial labelling market. Newly appointed as a value added partner of the Epson SureColor SC-F series of dye sublimation printers, Colourbyte will also showcase the 44-inch SureColor SC-F6200 – the complete package for creating high-quality textiles and promotional goods.

Phil McMullin, Sales Manager, ProGraphics, Epson UK, says: “We are delighted to be partnering Colourbyte at the show again this year and donate to the Golden Ticket Prize Draw. The SureColor SC-T5200 is a cracking prize and we’re looked forward to presenting the printer to the lucky winner.”
