Pyramid : Case Study Background
Prior to investing in HP’s digital technology Pyramid Visuals thoroughly researched the printers available on the market. “Our customers are all market leaders in their field, therefore the print quality of our work needs to reflect this. We spent six months investigating the presses and it was our opinion that the print quality of HP’s digital printers was second to none,” said Scott Meader, production director, Pyramid Visuals.
The company purchased its first HP press in 2002, installing the UK’s first HP Scitex XL1200 and has continued to invest in HP’s digital printing technology. The company currently operates six HP presses including an HP Scitex XL1200, a recently purchased HP Scitex XL1500, two HP Designjet 9000s and two HP Designjet 5500s.
Enabling sustainable growth into new markets.
“Investing in a combination of HP ink technologies – solvent and aqueous – has not only allowed us to start producing a wider variety of products but also to move into new markets,” explained Justin Murray, managing director, Pyramid Visuals. “After installing our first HP Scitex press we started to undertake a broader range of jobs and moved into producing print for the outdoor market. Customer demand for our work was so high that we invested further in HP’s digital technology, purchasing our HP Designjet printers so that we could produce the complete range of printed collateral needed for indoor and outdoor events and exhibitions.”
Pyramid Visuals uses its HP Scitex XL1200 and its HP Scitex XL1500 to produce vehicle wraps, billboards, backdrops, banners, indoor and outdoor signage and building wraps.
“Our HP Scitex presses are incredibly versatile and allow us to print on a wide range of media including canvas, mesh, self adhesive vinyl and paper, allowing us to be flexible when meeting our customers’ needs,” explained Meader. “We have recently completed a series of exhibition stands where we had to print on carpet. The presses coped with printing on this difficult substrate brilliantly; images were crisp owing to the high definition print quality.”
