Kings visit the Print Show 2018!
September saw one of the biggest events in the print industry calendar descend on Birmingham's NEC Arena to celebrate the power of print across the popular three day exhibition. 
 
Opening its doors to the biggest names in print, The Print Show is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the latest technology and new products available on the market. 
 
The event entails a Printers’ Bazaar, inspired by Asian street markets, visitors can roam and explore a wide variety of product examples from software to speciality paper or even witness innovative and niche print technology in action!

Our consultants visited the HP stand and saw the latest HP PageWide XL 5100 in action. The series produces instant monochrome and colour prints, using a waterfall ink drop rather than a traditional back and forth ink head. Ideal for quick poster prints for short term projects and anything that needs speed.

It's not just print on offer at the three-day exhibition, there's a wide range of finishing options also available. We visited Vivid Laminating to see how their newest finishing technology can help boost your print business.

Over at the PrintMAX stand, the team gave us an insight into the benefits of promotional printing for your business as they showed us the Roland VersaUV LEF-300 UV Flatbed Printer. The latest from the series, the machine prints directly on materials and objects up to 800mm in width, 360mm in length and 100mm in height. The kit uses ECO-UV inks in CMYK, White and Gloss for higher quantity production of small items or one-offs of larger items.

But it’s not all about exploring the new! Appreciating the rich and fascinating history that today’s print industry is built upon, each year The Print Show 2018 offers visitors a look into the pioneering techniques and technical excellence that inspired today’s products and equipment, including hand cranked presses, the first offset litho machines and letterpresses.
 
The Traditional Print Masterclasses gives visitors a hands-on experience of these machines.
