Your Print Specialists (YPS) has partnered with Agfa UK to add the Agfa Anapurna UV LED printer line and associated software and consumables to its portfolio.

The Newcastle-based print supplied reseller handles products for screen and litho printing as well as wide-format digital, where Mimaki, Roland and Epson products are also in their range. Well-established in the north of England, YPS says it has built long-standing relationships with independent printers since its formation in 2009. A team of 14 staff supports customers with a proactive service of supply, extended warranty packages, and service work via a team of in-house engineers.

Georgia Brown, MD of YPS said, ‘We are really excited about this new partnership with Agfa. This move to add the Agfa Anapurna brand to our portfolio is a natural expansion to our product range, as it provides a choice of wide-format options and fills a price gap in our current offering. We will be supplying the Agfa Anapurna print engine range plus the inks and the Asanti workflow.’

‘I have known the team at YPS for many years and we are delighted to now have them on board as a reseller of our popular Anapurna range,’ said Paul Fitch, head of inkjet at Agfa UK & Ireland. ‘It’s a great fit for our business, they have a loyal customer base who appreciate the independent technical advice that YPS give on the best print solution for their business. Many of their customers have been looking at the growth in the wider format market and the Anapurna range will provide a great solution to many of their enquiries. I am looking forward to working them.

Agfa’s Anapurna UV LED series is aimed at sign shops, digital printers, photo labs and mid-sized graphic screen printers that want to combine board and roll-to-roll print jobs and is offered in 1650 and 3200mm widths for outdoor and indoor rigid and flexible wide-format jobs.
