EFI and SpeedPro Sign Tech Sharing Agreement


Fremont, California-based wide-format printer manufacturer EFI has signed an agreement with the wide-format imaging franchise company SpeedPro Imaging.

Under the agreement, EFI will bring advanced inkjet managing technology to SpeedPro Imaging studios, initially providing its best-selling, 65-inch LED wide-format inkjet printer to locations within SpeedPro’s 120-location network.

Recently SpeedPro, which is based in Denver, Colorado, underwent an extensive testing and validation process with the printer, identifying it as qualified to meet the variety of wide-format graphics jobs that its franchisees produce.

Several SpeedPro studios will be installing EFI’s Wide Format LED H1625 inkjet hybrid printer this year. The hybrid roll/flatbed printer features eight-level, variable-drop grayscale imaging and EFI’s “cool cure” LED technology, which enables printing on a broad range of substrates, including media that cannot withstand the high-heat drying or curing methods used in other inkjet platforms.

The new agreement will also allow SpeedPro studios to purchase a range of advanced inkjet printing products, including other hybrid roll/flatbed printers that handle rigid, sheet and roll-to-roll substrates, and include white ink as a standard capability. EFI’s Professional Services organization will also help individual studios attain G7 standards on EFI printers, ensuring superior, consistent imaging quality needed to service the many blue-chip corporate brands SpeedPro serves.
