Something to celebrate
Summa has shipped its first F1612 flatbed cutters, part of the company's new Summa F Series. Products in the range are said to offer versatility, user friendliness and quality, backed by years of research. The first flatbed cutters have left for the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and the US and this has been celebrated with a big cake for all Summa’s employees.
Web tool simplifies wrap selection
An extra dimension has been added to Avery Dennison's website to help designers,
converters, and applicators of vehicle wraps and graphics choose the right material for the job. The on-line vehicle graphics product
selector is simple to use. First, choose the type of vehicle to be marked, then decide where on the vehicle the graphics are to be located, or whether an all-over vehicle wrap is required. Finally state the anticipated minimum durability. Once these baseline criteria have been established, it is easy to choose an appropriate material from the Avery Graphics range.
