Granthams to host wide format open day in North West of England

Granthams Encore Hotel

Sign makers, print service providers and commercial printers are all invited to the Granthams North West Printing Open Day this October. An impressive range of digital technologies designed to help print service providers work smarter, maximise profit and benefit from new and enticing revenue streams can be seen during the event.

With wide format printing, cutting and finishing systems from brands such as Mimaki, Canon, Graphtec and Drytac, the hardware will be supported by media ranges from Metamark and SIHL and software provided by CADLink. “This is a unique opportunity for companies from the North West to see complete wide format solutions, all in one place, from a range of equipment manufacturers,” remarks Granthams' general manager, Kirsty Reader.

“Given the ever increasing demands on people’s time, the easily accessible venue ensures a short travel time for a large part of the population in the North West,” she continues. The open day will be held from 10am until 7.30pm on Wednesday 10th October 2012. The early evening session ensures that printers hard pressed to leave their business during the day can visit the event straight from work.

A selection of the latest printing technologies utilising the full spectrum of ink types means there will be something for everyone - be it producing proofs or indoor artwork, super wide outdoor banners or small format prints onto promotional and merchandising products. Visitors will be able to see output on high quality Metamark and SIHL materials with files created using the latest SignLab software from CADLink. This enticing array of products coupled to Granthams’ strong reputation for systems advice and after sales support should ensure a valuable experience for all – something Reader is keen to encourage.

“The Granthams North West Printing Open Day is all about how to get your printing equipment to make you money. This is a great opportunity to learn how to get the most from your existing setup, how the latest technology can benefit your business and how Granthams can assist you in maximising your investment,” concludes Reader.

Companies who invest in systems during the event will benefit from a number of exciting promotions offered by equipment suppliers including free gifts and valuable extended warranties.

The Granthams North West Printing Open Day is on Wednesday 10th October 2012 from 10am until 7.30pm at the Ramada Encore Haydock Hotel – just off the M6 at Junction 23.
