This year is going to be an exciting year for us and we have lots of exciting new products planned, we look forward to seeing everyone at all of the events during the year.
Colorific has announced that it will be touring the globe this autumn and exhibiting at a number of major print trade shows.
Throughout the events – which include EcoPrint, the Viscom shows and SGIA in the USA – Colorific will be showcasing its entire range of ink products for the wide format print market, including its proven and highly successful Colorific Pro Max and Colorific Pro J33 ink solutions.
Shaun Holdom, Business Manager for Colorific, explains, “Colorific is attending the trade shows in order to boost awareness of Colorific in these regions and to highlight its alternative ink solutions and the resulting cost savings they provide. In addition, we plan to recruit new distribution partners whilst we are at the events.”
Shaun adds, “We will also be introducing our next generation ink – Colorific UV Light – at these upcoming shows. This revolutionary new product is a hybrid eco solvent ink that has inbuilt UV initiators. It combines the reliability of an eco solvent ink with the print performance of a UV solution.”

It has been announced today that technical support provider Tech8 will merge with Colorific, a supplier of cost-effective, high quality alternative inks. The merger, due to be finalised on 1st June 2012, will strengthen Colorific’s research and development capabilities and expands on the strategic alliance announced between the two businesses last year.
Shaun Holdom, Colorific’s business manager, comments, “The ink market has changed substantially with the widespread acceptance of proven alternative ink solutions such as those offered by Colorific. The demand for our quality inks has grown rapidly and – on the back of this success – our partners are now pushing for us to broaden our portfolio with additional inks offering the same high levels of quality, reliability and proven ‘best in class’ credentials.
Shaun continues, “We saw the need for a dedicated R&D resource to add the necessary pace to fully exploit these opportunities – so the absorption of Tech8 as an in-house R&D facility can only help in achieving these goals. It will also allow us to cut the time to market for any new inks, without compromising the excellent reputation of Colorific.”
Following the planned merger, the Tech8 brand will continue and sales activity will be focused on positioning Tech8 as a reliable and cost-effective wholesale provider of printer spares.
Justin Atkinson, business manager at Tech8, says, “With our engineering resource focused exclusively on Colorific R&D, we will free up a lot of administrative and commercial time to further develop our successful wide format printer spares business. We will be announcing, amongst other things, details of a new e-commerce platform in the near future and the continued development of our international partner channel.”
Tech8’s warranty business customers in the UK have already received notice that warranty cover will no longer be available as a service from Tech8 as of 1st June 2012. However, much work has been done in the background to provide contingency for these customers, with the option of continued service provision via a reputable and established alternative warranty provider. For customers choosing this option, the transition will be seamless – with no loss of service and no change in warranty costs.
Northamptonshire-based Creation Signs & Displays has switched its Roland VersaCamm SP-540V wide format printer from OEM inks to Colorific ProMax and made ink cost savings of around 35%. This is the 70th Robert Horne Group customer to make the switch.
Founded in 2001, Creation Signs & Displays designs, manufactures and installs the full array of signage solutions from interior and exterior signage, through vehicle wrapping to exhibition and display products. The majority of Creation Signs & Displays’ clients come from the agricultural industries. Its client-base – which spans the UK and Ireland – includes AGCO, Stihl and Case IH to name a few.
Much of Creation Signs & Displays output is created on the Roland VersaCamm SP-540V wide format printer. However, as with all businesses, the company was looking to make savings and boost profit margins. To that end, the company spoke with Robert Horne Group to investigate the cost-savings that could be made by switching over to alternative ink solutions.
Robert Horne recommended that Creation Signs & Displays try Colorific Pro Max – a high quality, alternative ink solution. So confident is Colorific of its products, it recently announced a 100% satisfaction guarantee – or get your money back – on its Roland alternative inks.
Following testing on the Roland printheads and further discussion, the transition from OEM to Colorific ink was made in January 2012. On the process, Tim Jackson, sales manager at Creation Signs & Displays, comments, “It was incredibly straightforward. We literally took out the old Roland ink cartridges and plugged in the new Colorific ones.”
He continues, “There was no noticeable difference in the quality whatsoever and we’ve made ink cost savings in the region of 35%. I’d most definitely recommend that other companies make the switch across to Colorific inks.”

As a result, we are the fastest-growing alternative ink brand in the UK and we want to replicate this success across the globe.”
