VICTORY SCREEN PRINTING PREPARING FOR DIGITAL FUTURE WITH INCA ONSET S20 FROM FUJIFILM SERICOL

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Oct. 27, 2009) – FUJIFILM Sericol USA, Inc. announced today the sale of an Inca Onset S20 UV flatbed printer to Victory Screen Printing, located in Fullerton, Calif. Introduced earlier this year, the Inca Onset S20 delivers POP quality production at speeds up to 2,690 sq. ft. per hour on substrates up to 2” thick. The press will be installed later this month at Victory Screen Printing and is the first press to be installed on the West Coast.

“We’re constantly looking toward the future and we see digital printing being the way the industry will move,” explains Bob Bhagat, co-owner of the 46-year-old company that he and business partner Mike Savalia took over in 2000. “Digital quality is just amazing and it’s hard to compare it to screen printing, especially when you consider the speed of digital printing. We definitely see it as the future and that’s why we’ve added the Inca Onset S20.”

Victory Screen Printing is a full-service, large-format screen and digital printing facility that works primarily for trade with other print shops, print brokers and advertising agencies. The company specializes in POP printing, including window clings, posters, merchandising displays, banners, floor graphics and a variety of other products and different substrates.

Savalia said they’d been looking at digital solutions for some time, but weren’t satisfied with the speed of the devices until they saw the Onset S20. “Speed…that’s what was holding us back,” he said. “But now, we’ve got speed and quality with the Onset S20. It’s going to provide our customers a lot of flexibility with their projects and we expect to increase the range of projects we’re able to handle.”

The company has grown steadily since Bhagat and Savalia took the helm, relying on a commitment to both service and quality. Victory Screen Printing and its 95 employees have also been committed to the latest technologies and, says Bhagat, is proud to now have the Onset S20.

 In addition to the quality and capabilities of the device, Bhagat and Savalia also wanted to make sure they were comfortable with the company and manufacturer they were buying from. “Both Inca and FUJIFILM Sericol are well-known companies and they work well together. We’re looking to form a long-term relationship with the companies we do business with, and both Inca and FUJIFILM Sericol are strong partners,” explained Bhagat.
