Mimaki’s FESPA Fun

New website and competition encourages customer creativity
Amsterdam, March 28th 2013

Me and my MimakiMimaki, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers, today unveiled its Fespa 2013 plans with the launch of a fun, customer-based website and a photo competition. The show at London’s ExCel runs from June 25 to 29 and Mimaki can be found on stand J5S.

To celebrate the unveiling of website, EMEA customers are being asked to get creative for a photo competition by uploading fun images of their Mimaki systems. Dubbed as the Me & My Mimaki Photo Contest, the competition offers a prize package worth more than €5,000.

“We wanted to use the platform of FESPA to highlight the very exciting results achievable on our portfolio of systems and help customers celebrate the capabilities possible, which is why we have launched,” said Mike Horsten, Marketing Manager of Mimaki EMEA. “Our solutions help customers be as responsive and proactive as possible but it is their energy and creativity that is vital to ensuring their long-term success.”

The emphasis on the fun is continued with the Mimaki-sponsored FESPA Wrap Cup Masters Series and the photo competition’s winner being flown to London with two sought-after VIP tickets to FESPA, paid on-site transportation, as well as FESPA gala invites.

Setting new standards

On display at Fespa 2013 will be the recently-launched JFX500-2131 grand format UV flatbed printer with LED curing and multiple ink options. With printing speeds up to 60 square meters per hour, the printer sets a new standard in speed, flexibility, quality and environmental sustainability.

Mike Horsten comments: “Incorporating a brand-new printhead and advanced LED curing, it brings new efficiency, quality and price/performance to the sign & graphics industry and wide format display marketplace. Its advanced head movement control produces an exceptionally high resolution image quality that can produce legible fonts as small as 2 points.”

The JFX500-2131 will be joined by Mimaki’s TS500-1800. With an unrivalled speed of 150 square meters per hour, it is the world’s fastest printer for transfer paper and is ideal for the textile market.

Also on the show will be Mimaki’s UJF-6042 A2-format flatbed printer that builds on the success of the smaller UJF-3042 series, while offering greater versatility and spectacular photo-quality print reproduction onto an almost limitless range of media. Furthermore, its larger print area opens up a whole new world of possibilities for end users in the higher volume production market, where even higher quality is demanded.

A creative mix

Promoting a mix of innovative technologies with social networking, Mimaki’s booth will feature its strong product portfolio, with latex/eco corner, innovative UV printing solutions, creative samples, and an “aquarium” where creative young students will show visitors job concept/design to realization.
