Colourgen announces additions to Elite Essentials economy media range

colourgen elite essentials

Following the successful launch of its Elite Essentials range of value inkjet media at Sign UK, Colourgen is already announcing the immediate availability of new additions to the family which include new water-based and solvent media specifically designed for exhibition graphics, roll-up displays and pop-up systems.

A key addition to the range is Elite Essentials Solvent Crystal Stoplight film. This unique product has a textured printable coating on one side and an anti-static grey lightblock cover on the reverse. It is stable and durable and eliminates curl on pop-up displays.

Peter Davidson, General Manager at Colourgen, comments, “The new Crystal product can generate massive savings for customers. Until now, users have had to run either a two or three part system which requires adhering the printed media onto a stoplight backer film and then running it through a laminator to get the required textured finish. Typically, this could cost up to £12.00 per square metre. With the Elite Essential Crystal printable stoplight media, users need only run the material in one pass, saving 50% in material costs as well as minimising the potential for errors and wastage and saving on production costs.”

Further new products in the Elite Essentials range include the Solvent Pearl Stoplight media. This unique media also has a printable coating on one side and an antistatic grey lightblock on the reverse. It is ideal for full and eco-solvent inks, used by the Seiko II ColorPainters, Epson Stylus Pro GS6000, HP 9000’s and most other solvent printers.

The range also includes new water-based products, which are ideal for Epson, HP and Canon printers.  One particular range of products that will be of great interest to those looking to address more applications with their waterbased printer is the Elite Essentials Pearl Printable Stoplight in 175 and 300mic.  These true photo-quality products enable users to produce very high quality roll-up and pop-up systems on their Epson, HP or Canon printers.  These products would require lamination before use.
