Salford-based Polkadot Design and Print has puchased an HP Designjet Z6200 printer from CWE Solutions in order to ensure it can deliver on the ever-increasing customer demand for top quality wide format print with quick turnaround times.
On the selection of the new machine, Polkadot's Bruce Shepherd comments, “We chose to upgrade to the HP Designjet Z6200 as it’s super-fast and efficient for posters, roller banners and displays, with outstanding, vibrant colours. We looked at other printers but the HP Designjet Z6200 was a natural progression from our previous HP Designjet 5000. A business like ours can’t just buy single pieces of kit, then sit back. We need to keep up with industry developments with constant and steady investment.”
The HP Designjet Z6200 was installed in September, and is proving faster and much more efficient, with roller banners dry before they even hit the floor. Polkadot says the Z6200 is the fastest printer in its class, easily meeting client demands with print speeds up to 140 square metres an hour.
Bruce Shepherd concludes, “In the first week with the new HP, we had an order for roller banners, where the client couldn’t get the artwork to us until 7pm but wanted to collect them before 9am the next day. When we got the file through, we set up the print remotely from home. The finished banners were collected by a very happy customer at 8.30am.”
