Newcastle-based printers, Print North East, has decided to put its faith in Marabu products by making a major switch of inks on its solvent and UV digital printers.

Now operating the latest in digital, large format and litho printing machinery, the company traditionally traded as a B2 Litho printer, however, diversified into wide format in 2016 with a Mimaki JV33, later a JV150-160, followed by a Mimaki flatbed UV a few years after.

Their printing presses can produce the smallest quantity business cards to the largest volume door-to-door mailers that run into the millions. Print North East’s sign department can produce anything from vinyl stickers, posters and banners to foamed or Di-bond sign panels. Large format is currently the fastest growing area of the business.

Commenting on the switch to Marabu ink, Steve Gilbert, managing director, said, ‘The change over from OEM inks to Marabu was completely seamless on both the solvent and UV machines and we are totally confident the change will help us deliver exceptional quality in a highly cost-effective manner.’

Distributed through the area representative, First Fix Plastics Ltd, the company are using Ultra Jet DLE-JX for their Mimaki JFX200-2513EX and the Mara Jet DI-FMS (GBL-free) for their Mimaki CJV150.
