Scitex Press May 2003
The January/February issue of popular trade magazine Signs, Screen & Digital Printer, featured Scitex Vision customer Pyramid Digital, of Surrey, England. Describing Pyramid’s transition from the general sign-maker to all round graphics provider, the article highlighted the company’s “bold” step in moving straight up to a Scitex Vision XLjet 3 from its first non-sign-making purchase, Gerber Edge.
Pyramid’s chairman John Fidler said that “We felt that rather than purchasing an interim level printer it would, in the longer run, make more commercial sense to acquire a super-wide, high production machine that was versatile enough to accommodate anything from posters to billboards and everything in between”.
According to Signs, Screen & Digital Printer, the Scitex Vision XLjet 3 emerged as the clear favourite of all options on offer, due to the vibrancy and quality of the colour reproduction. The fact that, with a printing speed of 75 sqm/hr, it is one of the fastest printers in its class, and the Scitex Visions XLjet’s ability to switch effortlessly between four- and six colour printing onto a wide variety of different substrates were also important considerations.
