With an eye toward making its customers more profitable, Agfa Graphics is bringing a wide array of printing systems, media and the best application lab in the country the Six Strings Classic Blues Lounge to Sign Expo 2013 in Las Vegas. The company is also introducing its first Duratex fabric for UV curable, latex, solvent and eco-solvent printers.
Duratex PolyFab is making its North America trade show debut at Sign Expo. This high quality, crease-free and water repellant fabric is extremely stretchable for expansion over frame systems.
The centerpiece of Agfa Graphics' booth is the "Six Strings Classic Blues Lounge," which invites attendees to see how they can expand into new markets with inkjet. The Lounge, which replicates a New Orleans Jazz nightclub, showcases various applications and the limitless possibilities created with the company's inkjet media portfolio and equipment. The result is an inkjet-created franchise business that demonstrates the best of Agfa and Pitman.
"Almost every surface, image and promotional item was created using inkjet," said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics, North America. "The 'Six Strings Classic Blues Lounge' is a stunning visual "application lab" of all the creative things that can be done with inkjet printing technology."
