UK first for Atlantic Tech Services and Vinyl Decals Direct

Vinyl Decals Direct asked Atlantic to supply a new print, cut and lamination package and subsequently chose the Ricoh Pro L4130 Latex Printer

Following its appointment as a Ricoh Partner, Atlantic Tech Services has announced a UK first with the installation of a Ricoh Pro L4130 Latex Printer in combination with Ricoh's AR Latex Inks.

Vinyl Decals Direct who moved to new larger premises with better access as part of a planned expansion of the business, asked Atlantic to supply a new print, cut and lamination package and specifically chose the Ricoh L4130 for the printer because of its ability to produce high quality prints, faster than most conventional solvent and latex printers.

Steve Tanner, MD of Vinyl Decals said: “The installation of the Pro L4130 has opened up a number of new business opportunities for our business.

“The sharper images, vibrant colours with the ability to print quicker, without the need to de-gas is brilliant for our production deadlines”

Vinyl Decals Direct is one of the UK’s leading design and print companies, producing specialist vinyl labels and POS products as well as many other items. Their innovative ideas have won them several large customers, helping their business to grow.

Keith Pratt of Atlantic said: “The installation at Vinyl Decals Direct was an important development with our sales of the Pro L4100 Series Latex Printers. These printers offer those companies who are looking to install a latex printer a quality printer with Ricoh GEN5 high-speed print heads that last and last, with the added benefit that you don’t have to change print heads after just a few litres of ink as with most other latex printers.

“This added to the recent release of the new Ricoh AR fast drying Latex inks gives the L4130 printer the ability of printing at speeds up to 50% faster than its nearest rivals” The AR Inks reduce those ink smells you normally get from solvent inks and come supplied in 600ml bulk ink packs.
