Mi5 Continues to Expand Large Format Print

June 2, 2021 · · · · ·

Summer is finally with us and Mi5 Print & Digital is delighted to announce even more great Fujifilm production power – adding another large format workhorse: The Onset-X1 flatbed inkjet printer. Efficiently producing high-quality, fast output retail POP graphics, the Onset X1 is the latest addition to Mi5’s robust large format production stream and was quick to impress Mi5 clients and EVP&GM Steve Tahk: “We run two shifts seven-days-a-week throughout our retail graphics department and when combined with our superior platform and in-house colour technology, embracing the X1 ensures our clients are getting spectacular work, great value and getting it fast!”

With an amazing throughput of over 4,000 square feet per hour, the X1 is ideal for producing fast-turnaround high-demand shopper marketing materials of all types.  A choice of uni-directional, bi-directional, high-speed, and superhigh-quality print modes can be selected depending on the specific project requirements so we can produce anything on the Onset from free standing displays to floor graphics to backlit prints and beyond.

“We just love what this powerful machine is doing with our customers’ projects!” says Steve Tahk, EVP & GM at Mi5.  “With a fourteen picolitre drop-size and our custom expanded colour gamut, there is simply no match for the output in this market.  At over 80 boards per hour, a custom UV system that allows us to vary the print finish and individual vacuum zone control, we provide jaw-dropping colour at an equally jaw-dropping price on every small, large, or rapid turn project that comes our way.”

Since 2004, Mi5 Print & Digital has been known for our investment in R&D and new technology.  Our commitment to innovations in commercial print has led to Mi5’s proprietary ProBrite Colour System for creating stunningly clear litho print on uncoated papers, specialty coatings like MetalMax and MiCote, and our recent expansion into digital foils and effects.

Derek McGeachie, Founder and CEO at Mi5 is most excited about what the new addition is bringing to the company’s award-winning retail offering:  “We create a great number of point-of-purchase displays for our clients, including food and beverage, CPG, QSR, fashion retail and entertainment within Canada and across North America.  The speed and quality on the X1 are amazing.  We’re running beautiful work and able to turn jobs very fast.”

“Mi5 always strives to serve both small and large projects to customers at a tremendous value and this complements everything that we do.  We are very pleased for the business growth this latest investment will bring forward to our client partners.”
