The Wide Format "What ifs?" 

Do clients come to you with increasingly diverse job requests? Do they expect same-day turnaround?  "Spot-on" image quality? WHAT IF your answer was, "Yes, we can do that!"

Today’s ever-demanding, ever-evolving print industry is full of "What ifs?"

What if you could get jobs out faster without comprising on quality? What if you could diversify your print repertoire to accommodate what your clients are asking for? What if you could still find a way to cut operational costs while gaining a competitive advantage?

Turnarounds are shrinking while client expectations expand. The print world is changing, diversifying far beyond traditional jobs. Your business growth depends on both your recognition of sweeping industry changes, and also leveraging the potential that comes with today’s wide format printer innovations, from Canon's imagePROGRAF line, Oce's plotwave and color wave, to those like Canon's game-changing UVgel ink technology.

What if it wasn't a question of "if," but "when?" The 5 scenarios below help visualize your full Wide Format Potential!

Print applications continue to evolve, while demand continually rises. My job is to help turn the 'what ifs' into realities for an organization's specialty print environment. Datamax is willing and ready to grow with our customers and their diverse applications." — Grant Murray, Datamax Production Print Specialist

1. What if you could double print speeds, & still maintain image quality?

According to an InfoTrends study,  up to 61 percent of all jobs are to be turned around in less than 24 hours. Meanwhile, print quality is the number one criteria when purchasing a wide format. The need for speed — and superior quality — is real. 

As an example, the Océ Colorado introduces unprecedented speed and precision for 64" roll-to-roll printers, with a maximum usable print speed of 1,710 sq. ft. per hour. UVgel ink technology enables not only instant drying of prints using LED-curing (eliminating drying time), but also extended color gamut and superior color consistency (for unmatched quality and repeatable results).

2. What if you could lower ink consumption by as much as 40%?

When purchasing a wide format printer, one must obviously account for all costs associated with jobs, from media type to staffing to ink consumption. And let's be honest ... ink isn't cheap.

Canon's UVgel technology has a much more efficient ink usage across different
media, in large part because the acoustic nozzle testing on the Colorado wide format uses no ink at all. The result? As much as 40 percent less ink consumption, according to Canon.

3. What if your printing capabilities were limited only by your imagination?

Imagine the possibilities. As print applications continue to diversify, your creative passions can run wild  — but only if you don't have to compromise on your wide format's printing capabilities.

The Océ Colorado is ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications. And with Océ FLXfinish technology, you can print your applications with either a beautiful glossy finish or a luxurious matte finish. From neatly-folded canvas prints, to eye catching front-lits and back-lits, you're limited only by your imagination.

4. What if you could flip turnaround time from next-day to same-day?

With 61 percent of jobs to be turned around in less than 24 hours, same-day service is the new industry norm.

With high-speed throughout, up to 683 sq. ft./hr., built-in hard drive, border-less printing, and other features that maximize productivity, the Canon imagePROGRAF series increases overall production capacity and reduces job turnaround time.

5. What if you could reduce project-related errors from unclear technical renderings? 

Color plans for architects and engineers can help reduce errors, omissions and liability. Applying color construction documents to design-bid-build projects presents a significant opportunity for reducing project-related waste from unclear documentation.

Are you still seeing things in black and white? Cost-effective color is available. And Océ's CrystalPoint technology, with its unique "silk shine," adds value to plain paper prints for a wide range of applications: CAD plots, GIS documents, business graphics and more.
