Epson Australia’s theme for this year’s Visual Impact show in Sydney will be “Say Yes to Success,” as the company showcases its range of latest print technologies with an increased focus on sustainability.
Epson SureColor S80660L
“At this year’s show Epson’s theme is, “Say Yes to Success” as the company demonstrates that the more solutions you offer your clients, the more work you can take on. Epson will also be showing companies how they can reduce their equipment footprint in smaller spaces and exhibiting the breadth and flexibility of their waste-reducing print products and solutions,” Epson said.
Epson Australia MD, Craig Heckenberg: “Due to the impact of Covid-19, businesses have opted to bring more print back to Australia. We have expanded our print range in order to meet any business’s needs.
“Epson is also striving to further reduce wastage and water requirements. We are focusing more on digital printing processes that are more efficient for both synthetic and natural fibres. You will see a range of these products and solutions on show and demonstrated at Visual Impact 2023 in Sydney.”
Joining the Epson team at the show this year will be Shuhei Sato – Epson Australia’s new Product Manager specialising in professional print solutions. Shuhei has a wealth knowledge about global trends in large format printing and was previously employed at Epson Headquarters in Japan.
