|Stickershop installs a Titanium Cutter 2.5 x 1.6 metre
Established in 2017, Stickershop are a Web to Print self-adhesive labels and sticker manufacturer based in Bristol. The company has been growing steadily since it began and now employs eight people.
Stickershop plant list includes an impressive array of seven Roland Wide Format Print and Cut Printers, (five VG640 Solvent ink, two LEC2-640 UV ink) and a Ricoh Digital Production Colour Printer.
They have recently invested in an International Graphics Supplies (IGS) Titanium 2.5 x 1.6 metre cutting table, to eliminate a manual cutting and finishing bottleneck arising from their huge demand.
Shane Pritchard, Director of Stickershop said “We had looked at a range of cutting machines but after thorough testing, and visiting an existing Titanium user, the Titanium 2516 stood out for us. It is robust, adaptable and very competitively priced. Our seven Roland Printers and IGS Titanium 2516 combination has enabled us to offer a varied range of self-adhesive labels and stickers in a variety of ink options, any size or shape and any quantity.
Our customers expect quality and they want fast turnaround times at affordable pricing. The Titanium 2516 has been integrated into our work flow using bespoke software, developed in-house by fellow Director, Callum Baker. This takes all our jobs from order to dispatch via proof approval, imposition, printer selection and cutting by simply using a barcode scanning system. This level of automation makes us very efficient in processing large amounts of daily orders.
The IGS team managed the installation with ease and their efficiency meant we were in production within hours of delivery”.
The Titanium series offers an impressive range of cutting tables with automatic precision cutting tools meaning the exact cutting depth can be achieved quickly, precisely and efficiently. Supplied as standard with all Titanium cutters, is a high resolution registration camera which ensures cutting printed jobs accurately to register and QR code recognition to locate the correct cutting file for each job automatically.
A range of speciality tools are also supplied with each cutter. These tools offer speed, power and flexibility to handle a wide variety of materials, such as Dibond, corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, textiles, wood and a long list of plastics.
Peter Flynn, Managing Director IGS comments on the installation "I’m very pleased to see Stickershop are already enjoying the many benefits of moving to a Titanium cutter. As Shane has identified, our price and performance is hard to match and this powerful combination is allowing us to building a very impressive portfolio of customers.
Our showroom is also busy with demonstrations for prospects looking to invest in Digital Cutters and UV Flatbed Printers to meet their customers’ requirements for short run packaging and social distancing signage”.
