“Dimense is unique in the field of digital printing and is the greenest system on the market,” says Abe Weiszberger, CEO of Stick On Signs. “We’ll be at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre to show businesses how, even in the face of unprecedented challenges, they can still add dollars to their bottom line.
“Dimense printers allow you to create that unique, exciting and sustainable products that will not only delight your clients, but add a high-margin revenue stream to your business.
“The pioneering technology of Dimense is truly unique, as it prints and embosses in a single step. That means structure and motif are perfectly matched – and that precision can be achieved at 20m2/hour on media of up to 1.6 metres in width. The precision is truly amazing.”
The printer can produce precision pieces of any size, colour or shape, with a variety of finishing choices.
Finishing choices include:
Matte, Gold, Pearlescent, Chameleon, Media Plus – an enhanced embossing effect, up to 1.5mm - and Silver – when a metallic finish is required.
“Digital printing has never been more exciting, with almost endless possibilities unconstrained by size, patterns or repeats,” Weiszberger says. “The finishes really need to be seen and felt to be fully appreciated, and that’s what we’re really looking forward to doing at PacPrint – allowing people to get up close and personal with a range of applications, to truly appreciate what is possible. It’s a big statement, but there really is nothing comparable to these printers anywhere else on the market.”
Dimense has an range of capabilities that includes printing moulds used to create custom shapes in cement and plaster with detailed definition, wallpaper décor and specialist signage, packaging and point of sale products, artworks and canvas works, posters, roll-ups and more.
“Most importantly, the Dimense System is totally green,” Weiszberger says. “The inks used are water-based latex, the process is PVC and plasticiser free, and all products and ingredients used in the process are non-toxic and certified harmless with the Eco-Institut-Label in Europe.
“For those who value our environment, this is great news – you no longer have to compromise; you can choose a product that delivers outstanding finishing qualities, and the highest environmental performance.
“It’s been a significant investment for Stick On Signs to bring this system into Australasia, but it’s a demonstration of our strong commitment to the technology, which we truly believe will add a new dimension to the digital print industry in this part of the world.”
The Dimense S Printer comes with a full ink system, media, design support, training and is backed by a 12-month warranty. It will be demonstrated on Stand H16 at PacPrint.
