EPSON Middle East together with their distributors, Almoe Digital Solutions is showcasing EPSON's Stylus Pro range of wide-format printers at the Sign & Graphic Imaging Middle East 2007, the region's only specialised signage, graphic imaging and screen printing show that began today (Tuesday, February 27, 2007), at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre. EPSON's Stylus Pro printers incorporate forward-thinking designs with a breakthrough 8-color ink technology to offer a final print of uncompromising quality.
The line-up of EPSON products on exhibition includes the Stylus Pro 3800, Stylus Pro 7800 and the Stylus Pro 9800. These printers use the UltraChrome K3 ink technology, EPSON's newest-generation of pigment ink that incorporates eight new color pigments, including a new three-level black technology, dramatically raising the bar for professional color and black and white prints. These three printers are primarily targeted at the photography market - users who want to take high quality prints of photographs.
Another highlight for EPSON at the Sign and Graphics show will be the launch of it's A3+ and A2 Enhanced Matte Poster Board sheets ideal for storefront graphics and point of purchase (POP) displays. With this, photographers, artists' agencies and POP print shops have the benefit of a flat matte surface combined with the rigidity of a mounted print at 1.3mm thickness. Developed exclusively to work in conjunction with EPSON UltraChrome K3 printers, it produces non-gloss images with high-colour gamut, excellent highlight and shadow detail.
