Production print with business-winning environmental credentials is the result of the newly launched partnership between BioMedia and Epson.
In a joint first, the two companies have announced their intention to work closely together to provide printers with a sustainable print solution.
Biodegradable within 5 years and recyclable, BioMedia provides a durable alternative to plastic based and non-recyclable outdoor substrates. When combined with Epson’s environmentally conscious UltraChrome, K3, HDR or even GS inks, the result is a fully environmentally-friendly production process.
The announcement follows 18 months of close co-operation to develop and profile the BioMedia range manufactured and distributed by G3S group.
BioMedia is compatible with the Epson Stylus Pro GS 6000, both coated and uncoated, while a water based coating has been developed for aqueous Stylus Pro printers. The range includes:
- 200 micron - ideal to replace laminated posters
- 350 micron - ideal for pop up roller banners and shelf edges
- 500 micron - ideal for pop up systems
- 750 micron - idea for flexible signage
- Bio Banner - replaces pvc banners
Mark Sanderson, sales director for BioMedia says: “We have built up a solid working relationship with Epson and are delighted the rigorously tested range is now available to users worldwide. The varied portfolio ensures there is a substrate for every need, enabling specifiers - confident of consistent results - to pick BioMedia for a broad spectrum of campaign demands.”
