Lincolnshire-based LR Designs has invested in the new Mimaki CJV150 and says it is looking forward to the promising future that the new purchase will bring them.
As a long established customer of printMAX, Lee Rudd at LR Designs was interested in specifically printing the colour orange for KTM motorbikes. Orange has always been a particularly difficult colour to match using the standard CMYK ink configuration so Rudd approached printMAX to look at what options are available.
Lee Rudd set up LR Designs in 1997 and since then they have fledged into market leader within their sector. Having been in the industry for 19 years, LR Designs have seen their clients' needs change and adapt as the technology of print has developed. Focusing on design and production for custom race bike graphics but also offering a range of print outputs to the race industry and general public.
printMAX recommended the Mimaki CJV150 print & cut solution which has 10 ink colour options, including Silver, Orange, Light Black & White inks. The CJVI50 is an exceptional printer, offering a faster print of up to 56.2m² per hour, allowing them to increase the number of tasks, ultimately upping production while allowing LR Designs to hit the KTM orange.
Working directly with customers, as well as Bike dealerships and race teams LR Designs are excited to introduce the capability to print the direct colour code requirements of KTM Orange to their customers.
Lee Rudd says: “We have found that the colours are much better on the CJV, we love how bright and vibrant they are... We are looking forward to broadening our horizons as we learn more about the possibilities that the printer can offer us, Mimaki gives us more control over our print, allowing extra options and variations.”
printMAX sales manager, Chris Martin adds: “The Mimaki enables LR Designs to offer KTM orange as a new venture, which they had previously not been able to produce, along with offering new product opportunities at a higher quality, noting that the colours are extremely vibrant.”
The team at LR Designs have now gotten to grips with the full capability of the Mimaki CJV150. Lee Rudd concludes: “At first it was challenging for us to get used to the change between our existing printers and the Mimaki, however, moving forward with the new machine is really exciting. It produces excellent work and we can see the huge potential to our business. The KTM orange was a strong requirement in our purchase, printMAX have offered continual advice and support in how we can achieve this, I’ll definitely be using them again."
