01.04.14 Impress with Mimaki and win

Since the announcement of the Mimaki/Spicers alliance in November last year, Spicers have been busy with an influx of queries and quotes for the distinguished printers.

And as if any further enticement were necessary, Spicers have now announced their first national Mimaki competition, with a $10 000 prize on offer.

‘ Any customer in Australia that purchases a Mimaki printer from us during March through to June will go into the draw to win $10, 000 worth of media from our range,’ says Jason Hay, Spicers National Sales Manager – Hardware Division. ‘Mimaki is a leading manufacturer of some fantastic wide-format ink jet printers and cutting machines, so we thought it was a good way to reward our customers and remind them that we truly are a one-stop-shop for printers.’

One of Mimaki’s latest innovations drawing attention is the Kebab option on the UJF-3042HG. Reminiscent of a rotisserie, this unique and exciting feature allows the user to print directly on to a cylindrical curved surface such as bottles and jars.

The cost-cutting CJV30 series have also attracted much interest. Saving time and space by allowing one person to effectively have two roles, this series allows automatic switching between printing and cutting and is a great way to boost productivity and profitability.

‘Mimaki have a huge range of printers ranging from Eco Solvent Printers to Latex Printers, Dye Sub Printers, Flatbed Printers, and Cutters,‘ adds Jason. ‘We’re confident of finding customers interested in Mimaki the right print solution, and hopefully winning them some media to go with it along the way!’

The Mimaki competition is open to all Australian customers who purchase any Mimaki printer from Spicers Australia between 1st April and 30th June, 2014. Customers will automatically go into the draw on purchase, and the winner will receive $10 000 worth of media from Spicers extensive range (based on list prices effective 1st April 2014). Limit one entry per customer.

05.02.14 Gold Class

Spicers is pleased to announce the release of their shiny new product, Gold Vanity Board™.

If you’re going for gold in your next promotion, nothing glitters quite like Gold Vanity Board™. The muted tones of Gold Vanity Board™ echo kindly back to your face, casting a sepia glow over the reflected image.

‘We’re really pleased to be able to offer this new and durable product,’ says Harry Pagoulatos, Marketing and Business Development Manager, Spicers. ‘After all, you can’t have silver without gold.’

Just like the Silver Vanity Board™, Gold Vanity Board™ is gorgeously reflective but without all the cumbersome attributes of fragile glass. Durable, lightweight, direct printable and less expensive than real mirrors, its stunning chardonnay-like shade is as unique as it is pleasing to the eye. The board can also be thermoformed and will bend just like a normal acrylic sheet, meaning you can easily give the illusion of bent mirrors.
Perfect for point of sale, shop fit outs, restaurants, attractive mirrored panels, change room mirrors, or even invitations, Gold Vanity Board™ is sure to shine whatever its use.
‘The applications of a gold reflective board is only limited to your imagination,’ adds Harry. ‘Gold Vanity Board™ will suit any customer looking for a highly noticeable, gold-class product.’
So reflect your ideas into reality with Gold Vanity Board™. But be quick – the Gold Rush has already begun...

Spicers is pleased to present their latest Yupo® range, a yuseful and yunique selection of synthetic paper that wouldn’t be out of place in a printer’s Yutopia.

Yupo® is possibly one of the most yuseful print stocks ever created. Available in grades that are tear, water, chemical and oil resistant.

Indeed, Yupo® comes in a variety of yuser-friendly forms to suit almost any printing or sign and display requirement. Transparent, translucent, bright white or large format, Yupo® is durable and versatile. Yupo® is yu-beaut to print on too. With options including super smooth, brilliant colour reproduction and sharp dot formation across letterpress, offset, flexography, gravure and digital printing processes, its yusability is high.

Spicers currently have seven different grades in stock and ready for yuse.

Yupo® Blue is designed for printing on the HP Indigo only. Along with being water, chemical, oil and tear resistant, it’s also 100% recyclable. Silky smooth and high white, Yupo® Blue is perfect for menus, magazines, wobblers and business cards.

Yupo® Octopus Blue is your “sticky” Yupo®. Also HP Indigo certified, Yupo® Octopus Blue sticks to smooth flat surfaces without the need for glue, over and over again, leaving no residue. It’s best used indoors only and has a multiple array of applications, such as point-of-purchase, posters, signs, maps and labels.

Yupo® FPU is ideal for indoor and outdoor wide format printing requirements, and has exceptional whiteness, opacity and colour reproduction. Suitable for UV inkjet and UV screen printing, it has strong and precise ink adhesion. Being water, chemical and tear resistant, its yuses extend from large format posters to light boxes, point-of-sale to signage and even street furniture.

Yupo® Octopus Clear is yunique in that it is completely see-through, reverse printable and stickable, meaning it’s often seen on windows. Water resistant and suitable for UV screen and inkjet printing, it also leaves no residue and can be repositioned. For internal use only, this grade is sure to stand out and is yused for point-of-purchase, window signs, decals and labels.

Yupo® Octopus White is another stock that sticks to smooth flat surfaces such as glass, PVC and aluminium without the need for glue and leaving no residue in its wake. This grade is available for Offset, Eco-solvent, UV inkjet and Latex printing. Suitable for indoors but with the bonus of being repositionable, it can be used in a variety of point-of-purchase applications, floor and window graphics and decals.

Yupo® Translucent is your first choice for back-lit displays. It’s heat resistant and remains buckle-free up to 120°C. It’s also water, chemical and oil resistant, thus it can be used in outdoor applications. Suitable for UV Inkjet and UV Screen Printing, this Yupo® grade is yused to great effect with light boxes, menu boards and posters.

Yupo® Ultra is durable but with the classic Yupo® silky smoothness. A versatile grade, it’s suitable for offset, letterpress, flexography and gravure printing. Stain, tear, oil and water resistant, Yupo® Ultra is ultra-yuseful. 100% recyclable, this stock can be used outdoors if necessary and lends itself perfectly to business cards, posters, signs, tags, maps, menus, tickets and labels.

Yu convinced yet? No matter what you’re thinking of printing, small or large, digital or offset, interior or exterior, you’ll find so many ways to yutilise Yupo®.

Spicers are delighted to have formed a partnership with Budde International as of September 2012, with Peter Maginn from Budde assuming the role of National Product Manager - Fotoba, RollsRoller and Wasatch within the Spicers business.

As part of the partnership, Peter will work exclusively with our sales and technical support teams for these products, as well as selling them directly on our behalf. He will be based at our Sydney office but will be working nationally to ensure these great products are available across the entire business. Spicers are thrilled to be embarking on this partnership in a time where there is a dire need for quality finishing systems.

This partnership is also an important step for Spicers as Peter’s experience combined with Budde’s excellent reputation and high integrity will further cement our position as an acknowledged key player in sign and display hardware and consumables distribution.

We ask you to please change your bookmarks to www.spicers.com.au/signanddisplay, which you can continue to use as a source of information about the wide range of high quality products you've come to know and expect from Budde.

Moving forward with a united vision

In response to rapidly changing industry needs we have decided to streamline and simplify our merchanting offer in Australia by merging our operations into one entity Spicers.

The changeover will occur on Friday 1st June 2012, when our existing businesses of Spicers Paper, Dalton, iMedia and Merchant Logistics will move to the new Spicers brand.

Spicers was selected as the Australian company name as it is well recognised in our markets both here and overseas, and aligns well to similar initiatives in New Zealand, USA and Asia. You will note our move to the name Spicers and not Spicers Paper, signifying a continued commitment to our core paper division whilst recognising the changing nature of our industry and, like many of our clients, this allows us to develop emerging business strategies.

To read more on this please click here to be taken to the main Spicers site. Please note that we are in the process of updating our main site to include information on our Sign and Display segment. Please continue to visit us here at spicers.com.au/signanddisplay for product information until then.
