PrintEx VIDEO: Shop smart at Spicers’ supermarket

Comments Comments

Spicers is encouraging printers to shop smart at PrintEx, calling them to visit its on-stand supermarket concept, which runs throughout the show.

A number of wide-format devices are on display, which Glen Makary, national sales manager, says reflects strong demand.

“We’ve had good growth over the last nine to ten years, and we’ve continued to evolve our portfolio through developing products with Wayne [Hood, portfolio manager at Spicers] to become one of the market leaders in the sign and display space,” he said.

Cyndi Setia, marketing and design manager for Spicers, says, “The Spicers Supermarket showcases a wide variety of ideas for print, packaging, labelling, signage, architecture and interior design.” 

The Supermarket, she says, gives visitors the chance to discover a variety of solutions illustrated with real-world applications, drawing from Spicers’ expansive portfolio of media and substrates for commercial and digital print, labels and packaging, sign and display, as well as architectural and interior design.

Setia says that at the Spicers Supermarket printers are able to immerse themselves in a grand opening retail experience, and explore the aisles for brands like Re-Board, 3M window and graphic films, Ace Outdoor, Yupo, Palboard, Digitac and Corflute.

The Spicers Supermarket also features the range of 3M Architectural Finishes including 3M Di-Noc, a self-adhesive product range that can be applied to a wide variety of surface materials from walls and partitions, to false ceilings and even furniture.

“3M Di-Noc allows almost infinite creativity to radically redesign spaces without using invasive methods,” Setia says. “3M has recently added another 225 new patterns to the range, bringing the total number of designs to more than 1000. The new Matte Series offers everything from deep, rich solid colours, to the natural look of dry wood, and the on-trend industrial vibe of industrial texture.”

Interior décor is slated for huge growth from digital inkjet wide format printing systems, at present it is barely touched.

The Spicers stand also includes a complete workflow featuring the versatile Mimaki UCJV300-160 LED UV print and cutter, the new and reliable Roland VG2-640 Eco-Solvent print and cutter, the super-fast RollsRoller application table, and the Neolt Sword ELS vertical cutter – reputed to be the world’s most innovative multi-functional automated vertical cutter.

“Of course, our Supermarket is appropriately staffed by Spicers shop assistants – our team of application and product specialists – to assist with everything from choosing the right substrates to creating similarly efficient and productive workflows in their own businesses,” Setia says.
