GJ Plastics have invested heavily in large format printing equipment over the last 7 years. One of the sticking points in production was having to outsource print, this increased lead times and cost and we had less control over quality. So the decision was made to purchase our own printing equipment, so we could produce in house. Initially we started just branding our own products but very quickly we moved into printing all manner of signage, such as Correx, foamex, acrylic and Dibond. We also started to offer a range of PVC banners, Roller Banners and Posters.
What products do we offer?
Correx Printed Boards
Foamex Printed Panels
Dibond or Aluminium Composite Signage
Perspex and Acrylic Signs
PVC Outdoor Banners
Roller Banner Stands
Large Format Paper and Waterproof Posters
Print onto our standard range of products, such as dump bins and stands.
What equipment have we got?
HP FB500 Flatbed Printers – These machines are one of the most popular flatbed machines in the country, if not the world. They produce excellent quality and can print panels up to a whopping 3050mm x 1525mm (10ft x 5ft). We print thousands of sheets of Correx, foamex, Dibond and acrylic through these machines every month. The FB500 can print onto most flat surfaces and can even print glass, wood and even your office door!
HP Latex 360 Roll to Roll Printers – Our roll to roll machines are 3rd Generation Latex, which use a water based ink, so it is better for the environment than your traditional solvent machines. We can print stunning graphics up to 1440dpi. These printers are ideal for roller banners, PVC outdoor banners and large format posters. We can even offer waterproof posters for A Boards.
Mimaki A3 UV Flatbed: – This is our smallest machine but size isn’t everything, this machine can print onto all manner of products such as pens, acrylic plaques, rulers, Dibond, foamex and even golf balls! The Mimaki prints very high quality, using very durable inks, so it is a great machine for promotional items. We can even print short runs of pens, with a minimum of just 50 units.
Summa F Series Flatbed Cutter: – Our Summa cutter compliments our FB500 Flatbed printers. We put the sheets through the printers, making sure a series of registration marks is included around the outside of the print. The Summa cutter then uses its in built camera to find these registration marks and cut the sheets accordingly. This means we can cut substrates such as Correx and foamex to almost any shape you like. Ideal for making Selfie frames, cut outs and standees.
As you can see from above, our print department is packed full of hi-Tec equipment, all running genuine inks and parts, so you can be assured of high quality, yet cost effective printing.
