Leading Suppliers Zone
As one of Europe's leading suppliers of the biggest brand-name range in the industry, the key objective is to demonstrate how Spandex adds value to signmaking and digital printing businesses by offering a total solutions package from a number of leading suppliers to the industry. Within this Zone, leading brands such as Avery, 3M, Orafol, Mactac and ImagePerfect™, Spandex’s own range of digital and signage materials, will have their own display with the latest additions to their portfolio. Visitors will also have the opportunity to try out some interactive, value-focussed sales tools.
Textile & Soft Signage Application Zone
The trend towards textile substrates for a range of sign and graphics applications is in evidence throughout this Zone. Themed around the growing opportunities within the textile and soft signage market, it will show visitors how to make the most of their existing equipment by offering new soft signage applications and complete, stylish solutions to their own customers.
On display will be Epson's new high-resolution, large format printer GS6000 (64") featuring an 8-colour solvent ink set, printing on ImagePerfect 2314 textile material.
Spandex will show different ways of mounting prints, providing visitors with ideas on how to deliver complete solutions and a broader scope of products for customers to increase profitability. For example, textile prints will be displayed with user-friendly mounting frame systems from Kunstdünger and Labate. The systems on display will include the robust and durable Monsterframe suitable for large building advertising and promotional displays; the Angelframe, a frameless structure that holds banners and materials; Pixfix invisible wall mounting system; Lumo, a flat light panel with high quality LEDs; the versatile mounting system Clamper as well as a mounting frame from Labate.
Low Investment – High Profit Application Zone

Spandex will be demonstrating a vast array of revenue-making non-inkjet applications printed with the Gerber Edge including silver, photo-luminescent, barcodes, whites on colour and many more. Its diversity allows users to print directly onto a range of speciality materials, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor marking and signage. A heat press in this Zone will be used to print on T-shirts and textiles with a wide variety of TransFlex and TransFlock materials.
Designed to provide visitors with new ideas on how to enhance their service offering, an eye-catching material gallery will demonstrate a range of innovative material applications from different manufacturers.
