Grafityp products get new logos
Grafityp has changed the logos of its Grafitack and Grafiprint products. The logos of the produces have traditionally been based on the iconic painter's pallet and have been much appreciated over the years, by distributors as well as end users, who associated the pallet with the Grafityp product line. As Grafityp is always evolving and innovating, the company has decided it was time to modernise the logos, preserving the names of the diverse product ranges, but at the same time harmonising them, while modernising other elements of the logos in these product groups to reflect Grafityp’s contemporary look. These changes will be visible on all marketing communications, from booth design, websites, social media, brochures and other marketing materials.
Textile printing made easy
with SENFA Decoprint
SENFA is helping graphics businesses to diversify into textiles without having to immediately invest in new equipment. With its range of Decoprint textile solutions for sign and display applications, SENFA enables print businesses to use their existing UV, latex and even solvent printers to create stunning textile graphics. The textile revolution has begun, but the up-front investment in textile-specific hardware is not always an option for those print businesses that have already recently invested in UV or latex technology. The good news is that SENFA enables those companies to try out the market without such initial investment. Many of the businesses that SENFA supplied have entered the textiles market with their existing hardware and then invest in dedicated sublimation machines as experience and confidence grow.
