How does it work?

Helpful tips: You can only print the current page and you cannot print multiple pages at the same time. Pages are printed at the page size of the PDF file. If the size of the paper loaded in the printer is smaller than the page size of the PDF file, part of the image might not be printed.

Design Supply director, Alistair Wright is convinced the equipment will take the UK print industry by storm, and that the CJV30 Series will set the next benchmark for printers across a variety of sectors through improved flexibility and the potential for bigger profits.

All four wide format printers in the series - CJV30-60, CJV30-100, CJV30-130 and the top-of-the-range CJV30-160 come in four different print widths (60cm, 100cm, 130cm, 160cm) and have Mimaki's renowned Die Cutting feature and accurate contour cutting facility.

Wye Media Invest in Mutoh ValueJet for Business Expansion

Maidenhead, UK - October 2012

Wye Media in Monmouth have bought the Mutoh ValueJet 1304 from Design Supply
Digital printer, Wye Media in Monmouth have been providing high quality printed solutions for almost all areas of printing and graphic design for over 15 years. Prior to investing in the Mutoh ValueJet 1304, their focus was on short and long run digital print and design, but the compans strategy to extend its services led Wye Media to look at investing in a wide format printer. As Chris McGowan explained:

"We were taking on a lot of wide format work, but didn't have a suitable printer for the job we had to outsource everything. This meant that we weret in control of the process or costs and as the volumes increased we decided to invest in a device so that we could bring the work in-house. Because of the range of work, we needed a printer that was above all both cost-effective and flexible"

He continues: "We obviously looked around for the best price within the range of target printers suitable for our applications. As part of the process, Design Supply presented the eco-solvent Mutoh ValueJet 1304 to us and the decision was made. This printer not only offered us great value in terms of a low capital investment, but also the flexibility and quality we needed.

We now have full control of the process and output quality, not only has this printer given us an extra revenue stream, we are very happy with its performance and running costs. We can also take on different jobs now and offer, point of sale poster printing, roller banners, outdoor signage and vinyl graphics and we plan to offer more using the Mutoh in 2013"

The Mutoh ValueJet 1304 eco-solvent printer has a media width of 54" (1371.5mm) and print width of 53.36" (1355.5mm). This printer is ideal for current users of water-based printers who want to branch out in to durable indoor and outdoor signage, but also for those more experienced users who want extra capacity and are limited on space.

The Mutoh ValueJet is available from Design Supply www.designsupply.co.uk. Wye Media can be contacted on 01600 775350 or you can visit their website at www.wyemedia.co.uk
