Antalis has partnered with Revolution Digital, Granthams and Agfa to offer customers a one-stop-shop for everything large format.
"It has never been a better time for printers to diversify in the large-format arena with a raft of highly lucrative applications," explained Paul Duffy, hardware and technical specialist at Antalis Visual Communications. "However, hardware is a serious investment - some of this large-format hardware can cost up to half a million pounds - so printers need to rely on the advice and expertise of a partner they can trust."
"That's why we've developed strong relationships with Revolution Digital, Granthams and Agfa, each business an expert in their field. Antalis is now able to offer customers the assurance of receiving expert, impartial advice and support," he added.
Antalis and its new hardware partners are able to offer customers access to products including printers from Agfa, HP, Mimaki, Roland, Canon; laminators from Drytac and Vivid; RIPs from Onyx, EFI, SAi and ColorGate; vinyl cutters from Graphtec, Summa, Roland and Mimaki; and colour solutions from X-Rite and Oris.
Paul Duffy is on hand to visit customers seeking to invest in hardware, providing independent advice to suit their specific requirements. Antalis' hardware partners can then provide technical expertise and on-site demonstrations, along with advice on financing and expected ROI on the solutions proposed.
Antalis also offers the resources of its Digital Academy, which has a range of workshops covering media, application, printer and colour management.
"We don't just want to help customers when it comes to choosing the right product, we want to ensure they are able to unlock potential, diversify and grow," said Paul.
"We know that diversifying into the large-format opportunity can be daunting for traditional printers but by working with Antalis and our expert partners, we can help customers navigate the options available to them, support their decision making process and ultimately help to grow their business," he concluded.
