Designs Invests Further in Sustainability and the Environment.


By Designs

Designs Signage Solutions continue to grow and invest in more environmentally friendly and sustainable large format digital print solutions.

The latest significant investment, two HP Latex 800W series printers supplied and installed by Paper Graphics Ltd adds to a growing portfolio of sustainable solutions by Designs all helping reduce their impact on the environment when producing vehicle graphics and signage.

The new HP Latex 800W printers, upgraded print servers and installation of high specification PC's to run the printers all contribute to a marked increase in print speed and overall efficiency of production.

A hugely successful 2021 and an extremely positive outlook for 2022 orders has enabled this investment in new equipment on top of a recruitment drive to increase team members to ensure the business continues to develop and flourish.

The decision to install additional HP printers was a relatively easy one for Managing Director Rob Daysley "We were already really impressed with the print quality and consistency of our existing HP latex printers. These are primarily used by our signage team so to purchase the two new 800W's for our vehicle team really was a no brainer.

"The two new HP's will improve our already excellent colour management, ensuring consistency across large print ranges and repeat orders. With a white capability that very few digital printers can get close to, as well as accurate pantone colour matching ensuring clients branding is reproduced accurately time after time.

"Operating the same ink technology across the Designs manufacturing site means we can utilise all the printers for the majority of our work, increasing capacity and workflow and simplyifying the pre press process without the fear of colours or images not quite matching."

Designs have always been environmentally conscious, recycling where possible, utilising hybrid vehicles for staff and being early adopters of solar panels. Installing 124 on their roof in 2014 to reduce electricity consumption. Since installation these panels have saved over 67 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. 

Designs were one of the first signage companies in the UK to start installing the HP Latex range of printers which are more environmentally friendly, utilising water based inks which removes the harmful fumes and hazardous waste associated with traditional UV large format printers, providing a safer working environment for our team.
