Verve Display eyes green growth with new Epson

Harlow-based Verve Display has invested in a new Epson SureColor SC-R5000 resin ink large-format printer as part of an effort to help its clients achieve a more sustainable operation.

The 64” machine is Epson’s first resin ink large-format printer

The SC-R5000 operates with a fully water-based ink set and can print onto uncoated media, which Epson says creates recyclable output and minimises environmental impact. The 64” machine is Epson’s first resin ink large-format printer.

Verve Display is an existing customer of Epson and was already running an Epson SureColor SC-S80600 and Epson SureColor SC-S60600, which managing director Simon Perkes says was a key factor in its decision to return to Epson.

“Before the pandemic, we began dipping our toes in the water and looking at systems and PVC-free materials,” Perkes says, adding: “We needed print production solutions that produce very high-quality work consistently and reliably. 

“We have two Epson solvent systems – a SureColor SC-S80600 and a SureColor SC-S60600 with Greenguard certification so we know and trust Epson technology. It is reliable and the quality is next level. We wanted to be sure we could maintain that print quality on PVC-free alternatives.

“We did not want to take a step back. For us the step forward was the water-based ink set where we know the quality is going to be maintained.”

Perkes adds that the company had issued with previous systems from other suppliers with this sort of material stretching but explains that having worked with Epson technology for some time, this will not be the case with its new printer.

“With the SC-R5000 we can be sure that when we print two meters for a wall hanging the drop next to it will be the same,” he says, adding: “Early signs show the quality is where we want it to be on PVC-free substrates. 

“This enables us to confidently print on a wider wide of recyclable materials – and some are very cost effective. This will help us better support our clients looking for more sustainable options - especially hospitals.”
