Impact Sign Solutions says Nazdar 702 Series inks have helped it meet 'mission critical' demands for colour accuracy. The 24-year-old Buckinghamshire-based sign making firm prints signs for small and large businesses, museums, schools, colleges and high-street shops – where advertising for high-end cosmetics and watches has to be precise.
"We create our own colour profiles to ensure our colours are accurate – we perhaps place more importance on this than other businesses – and have found that Nazdar 702 Series inks are certainly compatible with that ethos," says Andy Borrow, Managing Director, Impact Sign Solutions. "Colour is mission critical for us."
Impact Sign Solutions has been running Nazdar 702 Series inks on its Océ Arizona 250GT flatbed wide-format printer for around six months, having had problems with the inks initially installed on the machine, which were from another manufacturer. Research on finding a replacement alternative ink led to Nazdar and its distributor Quality Print Services (QPS) Ltd.
"Nazdar is widely known – people always talk about their products at Sign and Digital UK and so on – and has a very good reputation," says Andy Borrow. "The Nazdar 702 Series has been really good since the switchover and we've had no problems at all. In the future we're definitely planning to move our other printers over to Nazdar digital inks."
However, the Impact Sign Solutions MD is safe in the knowledge that if a problem were to occur with Océ Arizona 250GT, Lancashire-based QPS would provide technical support straight away.
"The QPS engineer who installed the Nazdar inks on the Océ Arizona 250GT was a breath of fresh air: comprehensive and competent, explained everything thoroughly and gave training and tips to the team as well as dealing with the machine itself," he says.
Chris Bailey, Managing Director, comments: "Nazdar inks are specially formulated to provide a top-quality, reliable, colour-matched formula for specific printing systems at a lower price point than the OEM product. The Nazdar 702 Series inkset for Océ Arizona printer platforms is no exception and therefore an ideal choice for businesses like Impact Sign Solutions that have customers who demand vivid, true-to-life colours and densities.
"We certainly don't anticipate any issues but our UK support team is available should Impact Sign Solutions ever need it."
Andy Borrow concludes: "Honestly, it's a relief to find a team like QPS that both supplies the excellent Nazdar inks we need and supports the machine – it's the way business should be."
Nazdar will be showcasing the Nazdar 702 Series inkset alongside Nazdar 703 Series and Nazdar 705 Series inks – all designed for the UV plug-and-play inkjet market – at FESPA Digital 2016 from March 8th to 12th.
"Our new UV inkjet inks are designed to be direct replacements for the OEM inks, while offering significant savings to the end user," explains Rich Dunklee, Nazdar's Global Market Segment Manager for UV Digital Inkjet Inks. "Impact Sign Solutions has discovered the benefits of using Nazdar 702 Series inks on its Océ Arizona 250GT: reliability, colour accuracy and, thanks to QPS's renowned customer service and technical expertise, a complete support package."
