Trade Show Booth Design and Production Services

Proprint is building relationships at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre

The Buildings Show is one of the highlights of the year for us. We get a chance to reacquaint ourselves with old friends, as well as shake some hands with the people behind the ever-changing face of this city. We never miss it.

This year, we decided to step up our game and design a trade show display that showcased what we do and who we do it for. What better way to do this than by making it out of the very materials we specialize in (printed substrates). We treated our own brand like a case study. We wanted to show a clear path from friendly introduction to project discussion.

Our positioning for this show is clear. We offer:

Belgium, Netherlands.

An enlightening experience

While doing my internship at Proprint Sevices, I was invited to attend the Esko 3rd annual Flexographic Packaging honours course in Ghent, Belgium. The course lasted 2 weeks and provided me with the opportunity to learn and explore Esko’s latest and greatest software, as well as experience the small city of Ghent and all it has to offer. With a population of around 260 000 people, the city of Ghent has a lot of history and was once the largest and richest city in all of Europe. The gothic architecture, beautiful cobblestone roads, bike lanes and delicious food are just some of the draws this wonderful city has to offer. The Belgian waffles, chocolate as well as the homemade jenever served at Dreupelkot were some of my favourites!

Proprint adds second high speed INCA digital press to it’s production floor

A dynamic digital duo

For over 5 years, Proprint has pushed the limits of speed and quality with their INCA S40 digital flatbed press. The results have been so successful for their clients that they decided to double down. The installation of their INCA R40i is a game changer for clients looking for speed and quality to get them into the retail market.

Doubling down on performance.

The INCA R40i is an 8 colour press (CMYK + light cyan and magenta). The light C/M enables us to print very high quality images such as food or fashion. It’s something that needs to be seen to appreciate. And those who have seen it, appreciate the difference.

White and Orange are the other 2 colours. At a sheet size of 63” x 123” we can print on 100 lb paper, corrugate, foam core, styrene or any number of substrates. Together, these 2 digital flatbed presses are the perfect team.

Take a closer look for yourself:

Retail POS Equipment Profile

Proprint is always looking for ways to pass value on to their clients. That means investing in state-of-the-art retail print production technology. The Fujifilm PlateRite 8600N-S falls into that category. Not only because it does an excellent job of processing plates for offset printing, but it does so with very little environmental impact. Something that’s also important to Proprint and their clients.

Impressive capabilities

Speed, Quality and Dependability all rolled into one

How does it work?

Simply put: Tin / Aluminum alloy coated plates go in one end and perfectly laser etched impressions for each colour come out the other. Each plate goes on to be applied to drums for offset printing. It makes the entire process seem so simple. But under the hood, a complex symphony of stages bring it all together. It’s actually really interesting to watch it work.

Check out this custom wall diagram

The best way for everyone to understand it’s functionality was to illustrate it. So the Proprint Design and Production Teams did just that. *(4′ x 16′)

In the old days, this process used to take weeks. The Fujifilm PlateRite 8600N-S eliminates the lengthy wait to get projects to the finish line faster. Learn more about this incredible machine here.

I know we’re not supposed to open our presents, but….

We accidentally put it together.

oops.
This time of year, the temptation to open your gifts early is sometimes quite overwhelming. And so, once someone had poked a hole in the wrapping paper and saw all the shiny buttons – well, we kind of “lost it”. Sorry. It happens sometimes.
But what’s done is done. Naughty or Nice, we just couldn’t resist the urge get it all set up for 2015.

Some Assembly Required


You want to see it? It came with action figures and cool set of stickers:

What’s inside these mysterious boxes?

Wouldn’t you like to know

On Friday, there was a knock on the back door. And when we answered it, all we can say is that we felt like kids again.

We knew that in 2015, to service the level of clientele that we do. We would need some heavy hitters to get the job done. And get it done right.
