Winner of Mimaki distributor, Hybrid Services’ Sign & Digital UK competition, Martin Cherry (otherwise known as Stan to one and all) of Ebbsfleet Printing Solutions, got more than he bargained for when he visited this year’s show. Not only did he place an order for a new Mimaki JFX200-2513 flatbed printer with specialist reseller Granthams, but his demo at the show secured him a place in Hybrid’s prize draw to win a luxury holiday at Spanish resort, La Manga Club.
“We were delighted to not only receive Ebbsfleet Printing Solutions’ order for the new Mimaki, but to pick Stan’s name out of the hat as well,” said Hybrid’s National Sales Manager – Industrial Products, Stuart Cole. “The prize draw was open to everyone who demoed a Mimaki during the show with one of our resellers, providing an opportunity for visitors to get up close and personal with the latest technology.” Stan wins flights, transfers and accommodation for four people in a luxury villa at La Manga Club – a fabulous 1,400-acre sporting paradise nestled between the Murcian Hills and the Mediterranean Sea, famous for its superb golf courses and world leading sports facilities.
“Sign & Digital UK was a great opportunity for us to audition new kit and we were quickly convinced the Mimaki flatbed was the right machine for us,” proclaimed Stan. “Since the installation, the JFX200 has being running virtually non-stop, delivering stunning quality print at quite remarkable speeds. Being able to print direct to rigid substrates makes our whole operation much more productive and profitable. Even operators not particularly familiar with Mimaki kit have found it easy to use. To be honest, our only regret is that we didn’t invest in one sooner!”
Stan was also very complimentary about the support he received from Hybrid & Mimaki reseller, Granthams of Preston. “From our initial enquiry and demonstration we were skilfully guided through the whole process by Sue Hayward and her colleagues, who showed great expertise and professionalism – right through to the very efficient install.”
“Sign & Digital UK 2016 was an excellent exhibition for Hybrid and its partners,” concludes Cole. “The uptake of Mimaki technology across all product ranges was significant and we were extremely pleased to present the prize to Stan. We’re sure he will have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to a great future of working with Ebbsfleet Printing Solutions to ensure they get the very best from their new printer.”
