Keypoint Intelligence Director of Research & Lab Services EU/Asia, David Sweetnam, said, “Because of the pandemic, these awards cover tested products launched over the last two years, with several vendors submitting for the first time. There was stiff competition, but in the end, Epson won across three of our Wide Format Signage Pick categories. These devices delivered impressive productivity and have noteworthy usability design coupled with the class-leading output quality that we have come to expect. Epson’s new resin ink devices are targeted at the latex ink market, while the other two winners are equipped with Epson’s new Edge RIP and bulk-ink formulation matched up to the same standards of performance that helped their cartridge-based siblings claim BLI Awards in 2018.”
Epson Australia’s Business Marketing Manager, Large Format, Gordon Kerr added, “Epson’s signage business has grown dramatically over the last ten years and our range has expanded to include cut sheet, roll-to-roll and flatbed solutions using aqueous, eco-solvent, resin, UV and dye sub ink. Our focus from the very beginning was image quality and customer satisfaction and we wanted to produce machines that would offer superior quality output on the widest range of media while ensuring reliable and cost-effective operation. From our engineers to our ink chemists, our manufacturing to sales team, we are truly honoured to have won so many of these prestigious awards.”
