As a Sir Speedy print shop franchisee for more than 25 years, Sean McKittrick appreciates the importance of using materials that offer excellent quality along with hassle-free production. And that’s why he uses Bantex Digital Media for banner production in his shop in Markham, Ontario, Canada.
“Our banner business is primarily wide format roll-up banner stands, and we’ve found that Bantex is the only material that works for us with no issues,” McKittrick said. “Bantex stays flat, never curls, and is easy to trim with great color quality. Our customers love the banner work we do in giving them a quality product.”
McKittrick’s customers include Swarovski, the Austria-based company renown for high-quality crystal product collections such as jewelry, accessories, decorative items for the home, ornaments and figurines. McKittrick prints roll-up banners that Swarovski changes out regularly at its 80 retail locations in Canada. Another client is Atlas Copco, a global leader in industrial compressed air systems, that uses McKittrick’s roll-up banners for trade shows displays.
“We’ve found that Bantex is the only product that works well with our HP latex wide format printer without any issues in production or quality,” McKittrick said. “We’ve tried other products, but there were continual problems. Without Bantex, we wouldn’t be able to do roll-up banner stands.”
McKittrick’s shop primarily uses Bantex® Curl Free™ 10oz 2 Sided and Bantex® Curl Free 10oz Blackback™. About half of his banner business is for roll-up banner stands.
“The banners we create with Bantex carry a good margin for our shop, which is important given on-line competition for commodity-type products,” he said. “Roll-up banners are an important part of our business, and I have Bantex to thank for making my life easier.”
