Scot Signs eyes new markets with HP Latex

Livingston-based print and signage company Scot Signs has set out plans to form new banners and wallpaper print businesses, following its purchase of a new HP Latex 1500.

Purchased from Perfect Colours and installed in November 2020, the HP Latex 1500 is now running alongside Scot Signs' existing HP Latex 560 and HP FB750 machines.

The investment came ahead of the firm launching two new business ventures in the form of Weprintwallpaper.co.uk and Weprintbanners.co.uk

“Now we have the backing of the new HP, we have the confidence to enter these markets,” Scot Signs director Mark Duguid says.

“The HP Latex machines are at the forefront of both the industry and our business; they are extremely reliable, and the print quality is second to none.

“The Latex printers are economical to run and are more environmentally friendly thanks to their water-based inks.”

Aside from supporting the launch of the new businesses, the HP Latex 1500 will also be put to work alongside the other HP Latex machines on Scot Signs' existing services.

Scot Signs provides both print and signage to the aviation sector, serving as the framework contractor to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports in Scotland, as well as Southampton Airport in England.

“As well as way-finding and wide-format prints for the airports, we carry out print work and installation for two of the largest media advertising companies in the country and produce a lot of wide-format for wall coverings and wall panel wraps,” Duguid says.

“Aside from this work, we also produce a lot of backlit textile and PVC light boxes for large advertisement spaces inside and outside the airports.”
