The Onset X1 and X2 Allow ‘Brands to go Big’
For more than 50 years, Graphic Systems, based in Minneapolis, Minn., has been satisfying customers with its visionary spin on the retail landscape in marketing, POP build-outs, and graphics.
“We made our decision to purchase two Onset printers from Fujifilm (Booth 8220) because of the quality,” says Herm Kauls, chairman, Graphic Systems. “The capabilities they each have are really second to none.”
The Onset X1, producing 4,304 sqft/hr (80 beds/hour), features eight active channels, with four channels printing CMYK, and the other channels configured as needed, using a combination of Light magenta, Light cyan, White, and Orange.
With a maximum throughput of 6,889 sqft/hr (128 beds per hour, 126.8x63"), the Onset X2 is ideal for companies producing fast-turnaround, high-quality retail graphics. A choice of print modes can be selected depending on the job requirements, allowing for flexibility.
“The Onset X1 and X2 allow us to continue our growth,” says Steve Ferris, president, Graphic Systems.
Kauls and Ferris know their customers are looking for quality, service, and price. “If you don’t have all three, you don’t get to talk with the customer,” says Ferris.
Says Kauls, “With our Onset X2, we are running a high number of boards per hour, along with the amazing quality with the over/under whites. These aspects allow us to enhance our service to the customer.”
At Graphic Systems, their motto is “Where Brands go Big,” and with a largely retail client roster of global brands, the Onset X1 and X2 will continue to deliver excellence and consistency on various types of substrates to meet client demands.
In the retail signage and display market, an increased number of ink channels and color options allow PSPs to expand their services.
“Having White ink is very important for us given the various materials that we print on, allowing us to do a number of different jobs,” says Ferris. “We are able to have a variety of different color combinations, allowing for maximum flexibility with PETG, reverse printing on various other materials, as well as the floor graphics we produce.”
“When you look at our workload, the Onset printers have allowed us to increase our capacity,” concludes Kauls.
