Long Beach, CA—FastSigns International, a leader in signs, graphics and visual communications, and Epson America, formed a partnership to offer franchisees the new Epson SureColor S60600 roll-to-roll solvent printer.
Beginning May 1, all 600 franchisees in the FastSigns network will be able to integrate the high-speed, high-production printer into centers. Currently, three locations have the new printer installed, with 33 new FastSigns centers expected to open this year with the new printer.
“After undergoing an extensive selection process, we made the decision to travel to Epson’s headquarters in Japan to see the design and manufacturing capabilities firsthand,” said Brian Boehm, FastSigns International’s director of Tech and Supply Chain. “In addition to the attainable price point offered by the Epson SureColor S60600, we were incredibly impressed by the updated technology the printer offers, making it a true workhorse, which we know all of our franchisees will enjoy.”
The 64-inch SureColor S60600 features Epson UltraChrome GS3 four-color solvent ink developed for print quality, durability and media compatibility. When combined with an all-new media feeding system and a Dual-Array PrecisionCore TFP printhead, the SureColor S60600 is said to be capable of producing sellable quality banners at 550 feet per hour, while also producing adhesive vinyl output at up to 310 feet per hour. epson.com
