Freestyle Designs expands offering with Agfa deal

Bath-based branding and signage business Freestyle Designs has been able to expand its service offering to customers following its investment in an Agfa Anapurna H2500i LED.

Purchased from Josero, the machine is now up and running at Freestyle Designs and has been put to work on a range of jobs including exhibition graphics, display boards and POS projects.

Freestyle Designs founder and managing director Jayson Godridge said that the ability to run a wider range of materials through the printer opens up more opportunities for the company.

“We’re using different media, and we’re able to work with wider media because it’s a hybrid machine,” Godridge says, adding: “We can print rolls, which we couldn’t do before on our flatbed, so we’re now printing rolls up to 2.5m wide, which has massively increased our output.”

This, Godridge adds, has also allowed Freestyle Designs to reach out to other companies in the signage sector and offer a more trade-focused service, expanding its offering further.

“We’ve been approached by other sign companies that have heard we have the machine, and we’ve been producing work for them when they’re over capacity themselves, so we’re seeing unexpected advantages. 

“I really wasn’t expecting trade work to be coming off the back of this new machine, especially so quickly. We’ve done a few decent sized jobs from it, and those companies were really impressed by how quickly we could turn it around.”
