STIXO-Signage Supplies

GSW held its second Open House event at the premises of Artswana, its new sub-dealer in Gaborone. Digital print and cut solutions as well as Primera label printers and finishing solutions like doming and laminators were displayed.

The second event, which took place from 15-16 October, was held due to popular demand. Almost 50 visitors came to see the new technology on show during the two days and sales were concluded, with more in the pipeline.

The successful Open House event showcased the leading Mimaki CJV30 print+cut machine with cost-saving BS3 ink. The Mimaki printers have unique functionalities, particularly with the BS3 bulk ink savings. The BS3 ink was developed by Mimaki in response to market demands for a more cost-effective ink solution in JV33 Series printers and CJV30 print+cut machines.

In the past, customers have suffered print head damage and experienced loss of print quality and colour, when switching to third-party ink suppliers. With Mimaki’s BS3 ink, print costs can be reduced by almost half, while still using OEM original ink.

A wide range of applications are made possible with Mimaki’s CJV30 Series (available in four sizes 60cm, 100cm, 130cm, 160cm). Some of the applications achievable with the Mimaki CJV30:

  • Canvas – for art repro/printing photos.
