The versatility and productivity of the HP Scitex FB6100 Printer enabled XL Print, of Portsmouth, to create a 3.5m x 10m Christmas card for Margaret Hodge, Minister of State for Culture, Media & Sport, to increase awareness for Portsmouth and Southampton's bid for the 2013 European City of Culture.
XL Print printed the Christmas card, envelope and stamp using its HP Scitex FB6100. The finished job was completed in just three hours and comprised 75m² of corex as well as a paper envelope, which was stamped and addressed to the Minister of Culture Media & Sport. The Christmas card was then assembled and delivered to Trafalgar Square within 24 hours.
"The HP Scitex FB6100 is the only printer on the market which converts from a roll-to-roll to flatbed configuration which offered us the perfect balance between wide format, high quality and speed. The printer enabled us to create something unique, while ensuring high quality results," said Avi Hochshteadt, director, XL Print.
With a portfolio comprising the HP Scitex FB6100 Printer, HP Scitex XP5100 Printer, HP Scitex XP5300 Printer and HP Designjet 10000 Printers, XL Print targets niche markets with needs for high quality wide format prints such as banners, backlit in large format light boxes, POP/POS displays, vehicle graphics and building wraps.
