Anvy Digital of Calgary has installed the nation’s first Fujifilm Acuity Advance HS X2 wide-format inkjet printer.
Founded in 2002 by John Phan, Anvy Digital has since grown to 16 employees in 10,000 square feet of space. The company produces signage (both indoor and outdoor) as well as vehicle graphics and other forms of display graphics.
“We’ve doubled the speed, with the same quality,” said Phan. “We can pass those savings on to the customer. We needed to stay price competitive.”
According to Phan, the new machine also allowed Anvy to reach new customers with more capabilities. “You only have one or two chances to get business from them. Pricing isn’t necessarily the most important factor, initially. They want to know ‘Can you do it, can you handle the project?’ They look at turnaround, capacity, and quality, as well as price.”
The Acuity Advance HS X2 can print in sizes of up to 8×10-feet at up to 700-square-feet per hour in Express Mode. The machine made its international debut in June of last year.
