Pure Theatre has been able to achieve ‘perfect, smooth black' borders for its projector screens thanks to ‘brilliant' support from Quality Print Services (QPS) and inks from Nazdar.
Pure Theatre, which markets itself as ‘the home cinema company', is a division of Geomics Ltd and was established in 2003 in Telford. The company specialises in the design and manufacture of home cinema systems and has become a major supplier to both consumers and AV professionals.
Two years ago, Pure Theatre installed an MT Refretonics 3.2m-wide UV digital inkjet printer at its premises to print the black borders on its projector screens. The company then got in touch with QPS - a wide-format print specialist, main UK distributor of Nazdar digital inkjet ink products and key reseller for Roland DG - to ensure the quality was at its highest.
Chris Pettitt, Managing Director of Pure Theatre, explains: "Most AV businesses either spray or weld borders onto their screens, but we decided to go with the high-tech option of printing them. However, we were struggling to achieve a consistent smooth black finish, so called Chris Bailey and the QPS team to see if they could help.
"QPS immediately recommended Nazdar UV LED inks. On Chris Bailey's advice, we also added some silicone heat pads to the header tanks which ensured we were able to maintain the temperature at a constant 40 degrees. Following the recommendation, we saw a huge improvement in our printed output and now are able to consistently print perfect smooth black borders on our projector screens."
Designed for the production of exceptional POP displays, durable graphics and banners where colour fidelity and adhesion are of primary importance, the Nazdar UV LED inks can be used for a wide variety of substrates. The inks offer exceptional colour and chemistry compatibility, quality and cost effectiveness.
Chris Pettitt concludes: "The printed borders now look fantastic and we couldn't recommend the team at QPS more highly; they offer really helpful advice and provide a brilliant support service, and we really appreciate their assistance."
