Mutoh First Spitfire Extreme Installed
December, 2007 | Houston, TX - Colortech Direct, located in Houston, Texas, formerly known as Colortech
Printing, has now expanded their production capabilities to include signage, banners, vehicle graphics and
more, since the recent addition of the Mutoh Spitfire Extreme Printer. The first Spitfire Extreme to be installed
in the US has produced high output for Colortech Direct.
"The Mutoh Spitfire Extreme has been a valued addition to our production capabilities. We are very satisfied
with our decision and will continue to incorporate Mutoh products in our future purchases," said Shawna Harris,
Operations Manager for Colortech.
Colortech has been in the large format digital printing industry for 8 years, but the acquisition of the Spitfire
Extreme has allowed a more diversified spectrum of jobs, such as wrapping a Volkswagen Beetle and matching
trailer for That Chic Boutique, conference signage for Shell Oil, as well as banners, posters and large photo-
quality graphics for several mega-churches.
"The Spitfire is fast, efficient and very reliable. I don't feel the need to "baby-sit" each job now. I can start
multiple jobs, each with different specifications, and feel confident they will come out as expected," said
The machine is very user friendly. Colortech’s production team members who have had little to no experience
with large format machines can easily be trained to perform basic tasks. Daily and weekly maintenance is
"Since we have expanded our breadth of services beyond the realm of printing solutions, we decided to
change our name to Colortech Direct to stay aligned with our changing direction effective December 1st,"
said Mike Harris. "We are very proud of our latest addition, most importantly, the high quality of work produced
using Mutoh’s Intelligent Interweave Print Technology that consistently prints bold vibrant colors. We are
excited to be the first to bring this machine and the use of eco-friendly inks to the United States!"
