Based in Four Crosses, The Clever Baggers is a specialist textile printing company founded in 2006 by husband and wife directors Vivian and Louise Lacey-Johnson.
Producing a range of high-quality bags, tea towels, tableware, cushion covers and aprons, the company recently acquired a new, larger premises in order keep up with demand. In addition, they purchased a Mimaki CJV150-75 from CMYUK.
The CJV150 Series provides high performance, creativity and versatility with vibrant ink
The company had previously owned a Mimaki, and knew that they wanted to purchase another, “We didn’t have any problems with the old Mimaki, it had worked perfectly for us for so many years. It was simply time to upgrade it. It was a no-brainer to go with another Mimaki” says Sarah Evans, Fulfilment Manager at The Clever Baggers, “The CJV150 is as good as the old machine but shinier, bigger and allows us to match to Pantones, which is great when you need to switch print method but want the exact same colour.”
The Mimaki has allowed the company greater flexibility in order to expand within the gift market
The Mimaki has allowed the company the flexibility to offer unique one-off orders within the gift market, at the same time as producing orders amounting to tens of thousands. The CJV150 Series provides high performance, creativity and versatility with vibrant ink, including new orange and light black; another appealing feature to The Clever Baggers as they can offer brighter, more vibrant products.
“The whole process was flawless thanks to CMYUK” concludes Evans, “From discussions about the machine to instalment, from training to the aftersales service they offer. We couldn’t be happier.”
