Cardiff-based Gardner took a leap of faith by investing in unproven print technology four years ago. The firm underwent a period of rapid, 30-40% growth per year and is now on target to hit a turnover of 11-12 million pounds this year. The technology they used was the Agfa Dotrix, a 63cm-wide roll-to-roll UV-cured digital inkjet press.
Gardner was looking for a more efficient way of printing adhesive window decals for financial services than the screen process historically used. They ran some jobs in 27 colors to get high quality. Screen print was difficult in production, including optimizing the layout on the material, and some jobs took up to six months to prepare. Gardner made the move into wide-format for specialist fabric printing 12 years ago."
