Color Reflections Purchases EFI VUTEk GS5000r Printer
Roll-to-roll UV Superwide Format Printing.
We are excited to announce that Color Reflections has added an EFI VUTEk® GS5000r UV roll-to-roll printer to our portfolio of EFI VUTEk superwide format inkjet products. This means more speed, higher quality and versatility for our customers.
More speed, Higher Quality and the Versatility
Producing roll-fed sign and display graphics on a variety of media was especially important in the purchase decision. Printing roll media signage and displays are less expensive to ship than signage printed on rigid substrates. In addition, many larger corporate customers have found they can reduce their carbon footprint, using high-quality roll media to minimize the fuel consumption associated with transporting signage.
Color Reflections manages the VUTEk printers using EFI Fiery® proServer digital front ends (DFEs), which provide consistent and accurate control, so Color Reflections can easily match colors across its superwide format production fleet.

“We initially turned to EFI VUTEk superwide format printers in 2008 in an effort to move away from solvent printers,” said Joe Castellano, president of Color Reflections.
“We started with a VUTEk QS3200, then upgraded that to a GS3200. When we were looking for a fabric printing solution, EFI was there with the VUTEk TX3250r. So when we wanted to replace our five-meter solvent printers, it was only natural to go back to EFI to round out our UV superwide format fleet.”
