Gandinnovations Expands Approved Vendor Program
Gandinnovations, a world leader in grand format digital printer has expanded its Approved Vendor Program
(AVP) and added Aurora Textiles to its impressive list of media partners with the qualification of 4 fabrics.
Gandinnovations recently approved the Aurora VC Cotton Canvas, Natural VC Poly Oxford and Upholstery
for the Aquajet and the AC Canvas for the Jeti UV Roll-to-Roll line. These materials can be used for tradeshow
graphics, outdoor displays, home furnishings, art reproductions, retail POP, and industrial applications.
"Our media partners must submit materials for testing on any of our full line of Jeti Printers. Testing is based on
multiple qualifications, such as color fastness, durability, adhesion and flexibility of the inks on the substrate
tested," says Tom Reilly, Vice President of Marketing for Gandinnovations. "We then give it a one-to-five star
rating, with five stars being the best possible output for the high standard we have set."
Aurora Specialty Textiles Group, Inc. is one of the world leaders in the coating, dyeing, and finishing of both
woven and non-woven fabrics. For more than 100 years, Aurora has been an innovative worldwide provider
of textile solutions for a wide range of end uses and markets.
"We are excited to be working with such a forward thinking company as Gandinnovations and are already
looking ahead to having additional fabrics certified by them," says Mike Richardson, Director of Marketing,
Print Media for Aurora Specialty Textiles Group Inc.
Once approved as a media partner, Gandinnovations adds the vendor’s material specs to its “approved media”
link on its newly renovated website, helping its customers to reference materials that Gandinnovations™ has
previously qualified. Also, with the qualification of the 4 products, Aurora Textiles and Gandinnovations will
continue to work together to build on a successful partnership that will include partnering at upcoming
tradeshows and Gandinnovations state-of-the-art demo facility in Toronto, ON, Canada.
