Northern Flags has made BBC headlines with their new England Waistcoat Supporters Flag, printed on their Agfa Avinci wide format dye sublimation printer.
Northern Flags, which has a 33-year history in supplying flags, has been inundated with enquiries for the St George’s Cross flags since the World Cup started so they were approached by BBC Look North to discuss the impact the World Cup had had on their business. The company designed this new ‘waistcoat design’ flag to celebrate England’s progression in the World Cup which was captured by the Television cameras when they arrived to interview MD Iain Clasper-Cotte. Since appearing on BBC Look North news they’ve received a rush of orders.
The business invested in the Agfa Avinci DX3200 dye sublimation engine earlier this year which is driven by the Agfa Asanti workflow solution. The Avinci DX3200 is an industrial dye sublimation roll-to-roll printer bringing remarkable print quality to a wide range of soft signage applications. It’s a highly productive, large format unit, printing up to 3.2m in width with low ink consumption, 6 colours (CMYKLcLm) and with a resolution up to 540 x 1080 dpi.
“Following the feature on BBC Look North, people literally knocked on our doors the following morning to order this new flag design. The Avinci print engine has produced a quality product for us and if we get the result we all want tonight, long may we continue to get this run on sales.” Said Iain Clasper-Cotte, UK Managing Director for Northern Flags.
