VIVID is first print business to purchase the HP Stitch S1000 in Australia

Online signage manufacturer VIVID is the first Australian print commerce business to obtain the HP Stitch S1000, a super wide dye-sublimation production printer designed to simplify operation, enable large volumes during peak times and deliver high quality at fast speeds even when unattended.

In addition, the company has also recently purchased the Zund G3 Cutter and Monti Antonio heat press – further cementing its speciality in dye-sublimation printing.

The million-dollar investment in these technologies now makes it easier than ever for VIVID's customers to create quality displays with big impact.

Since installation, the HP Stitch has increased VIVID’s production capacity by 400 percent and enabled a 24-hour turnaround time on fabric printed products.

“Dye-sublimation is a complicated process and over recent years we’ve had a huge demand from our clients across sectors including retail, events and exhibitions – who are looking for more reliable, and better quality direct to fabric printed products,” says Faris Memon, Sales Director, VIVID.

“Our bottleneck has always been printing. We were having to refuse larger jobs because we couldn’t meet the tight deadlines, but we now have the capacity to cater for high volume jobs which will have a significant impact on our bottom line.”

Jeremy Brew, Worldwide PrintOS and LF Solutions Expert at HP believes the HP Stitch S1000 was the obvious solution in helping VIVID to increase productivity and meet customer demands.

“VIVID’s production team can now print at speeds of up to 220 m2/hour, even while unattended, with a maximum capacity of 100,000 sqm per month” he says. “The HP Stitch features our thermal printhead technology, a first in dye-sub printing, which helps to deliver incredible quality with maximum uptime. This printer is largely automated which means VIVID can spend more time helping customers to bring their display vision to life, and less time on the printing process.”

 VIVID caters to hundreds of trade partners including other printers, marketing agencies and design houses across Australia.

“We recently had a project for a trade partner where a customer needed 3000+ SQM of backlit graphics produced in a matter of days, and with the HPS1000 we were able to complete the job overnight which exceeded our customers' expectations,” explains Faros.

“At VIVID we are passionate about providing our customers with a one-stop-shop for all large format display needs – and this latest investment helps us to do just that. Everything we do at VIVID is completed in house, which gives us and our customers greater peace of mind in the current COVID-19 landscape,” he concludes.
