Prompt Side Theatrical Drapery, Britain's leading theatrical drapery producer has invested in the new EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340 soft signage printer to add polyesters and other fabrics to its portfolio. With the recent purchase of the fabric graphics printer, the company would be able to work with lightweight, polyester-based materials.

The VUTEk FabriVU printer offers excellent print durability with its 2,400 dots per inch (dpi) maximum resolution. It also produces photo-quality, vivid images with highly saturated colours and powerful blacks, the company said in a press release.

“I am delighted to be at the vanguard of theatrical digital print. This is an exciting time for Prompt Side as we expand our range of products and massively increase the creative opportunities available to designers,” said Peter Baker, managing director of the Kent, UK-based theatrical design and decor specialist.

The printer delivers high-quality results on an extended range of substrates, including those that cannot withstand the heat of other drying or curing processes. EFI's LED inkjet platform also is very energy efficient compared to UV or latex imaging process. The printer uses environmentally friendly, aqueous, dispersed dye-sublimation inks. It also is highly efficient in its ink and water usage.

Prompt Side's newest tech investment prints at speeds up to 464 square metres per hour and features four-level greyscale printing with 4- to 72-picolitre drop sizes.

“Prompt Side now has a bigger competitive advantage, with a new, powerful and sustainable platform to address growing demand for fabric graphics. Peter Baker and his team will capture new opportunities as the first users of this advanced printer, and that serves as a great example of how businesses can follow the real momentum in the market by taking digital graphic display printing to a new level of innovation,” commented Paul Cripps, EFI's regional vice president of sales.
