Colourgen has announced its exclusive UK distribution of the new 3D wallpaper printing solution Dimense.
Dimense is the first printer to simultaneously print and create structure for bespoke, creative graphic designs and as such is especially suited to the production of bespoke wallpaper. The innovative nature of Dimense whereby the ink creates the structure, recently won it the European Digital Press Association Award for ‘Best Wallpaper Solution 2018’ at FESPA 2018 in Berlin.
Dimense offers output with high light-fastness, scrub resistance and is C1 fire rated, making it perfect for high traffic areas such as hotels, retail and corporate environments. Speeds of up to 20sqm/hour can be achieved with a print width of 1.6m. Dimense is an environmentally friendly technology based on latex eco-friendly inks and PVC-free structure-forming Ecodeco media.
Colourgen has appointed Dean Keenan, formerly of Landor UK and Sihl Direct, to head Business Development and Sales for the Dimense 3D printer range.
Mark Lambert, Director, says, “These are really exciting times for Colourgen. Dimense is a unique and innovative product that is set to be a game changer in the digitally printed wallpaper market. We are looking forward to promoting this product to a broad audience across print, design, retail and interior decoration. Dimense really is a revolution in the creation of custom graphics with structure”
He continues, “We are also delighted to welcome Dean Keenan back to Colourgen. Dean has excellent knowledge of the bespoke wallpaper market and extensive experience in digital media. His expertise will place us in the perfect position to maximize the potential of Dimense and the creative opportunities it presents to end users. We have also set up a dedicated website for Dimense at www.dimense.co.uk"
The Dimense printer will be shipping in the UK exclusively from Colourgen in September 2018 and Colourgen will be exhibiting at the 100% Design exhibition at Olympia from 19-22 September (stand no EB50).
