This years Focus on Imaging show saw DCP Systems take twice the amount of orders for large format printers than last year, taking nearly 50 orders for photographic printers from Epson and HP.
Their printers ranged from the A3 professional desktop Epson printers right up to the brand new and environmentally friendly 42in HP Latex Designjet L25500 printer.
“It’s a sign of the times
”, states managing director of DCP Systems, Darren Walker, “And the signs are all pointing to a good year for professional photographers. Most who purchased printers off us at the show are aware that they need to understand the whole process of digital photography – from capture to output and are now diversifying their operations to include printing wide format onto canvas, wallpaper, fabric and much more. The technology is such now that whatever you can imagine in print, there will be a way of realising this and nobody understands wide format print like we do. That’s why in my opinion we’ve done well at this show because we’ve been able to give people a real choice here and shown them a real understanding of their needs and demonstrated and sold a printer to suit.
Epson launched a variety of promotions at the show including half price 3 year warranties on all Epson Stylus Pro series printers, a new loyalty bonus for existing Epson users looking to upgrade and up to a third off all Epson Photo and Fine Art papers. DCP will be continuing these offers until the end of March. Other special offers at the show included HP’s Buy and Try, Trade in programme and media Start Right incentives.
The HP Latex Designjet L25500 printer is the latest printer in HP’s drive to become the worlds’ leading environmentally conscious printer manufacturer. It includes an inkset developed using latex technology that will print onto virtually any substrate and adhere with durability yet doesn’t emit any of the harmful gasses and smells associated with traditional UV printing, thereby enabling finished prints to be hung safely in close confined public spaces such as hospitals, galleries, shops, supermarkets, museums and council offices amongst others.
For anyone who missed the DCP Systems Stand at Focus, they now have installed all the printers back at their purpose built centre of excellence for photographers and fine art customers which is available for pre-booked demonstrations.
