Global Imaging’s Unique Workflow Studio Expands Product Showcase
In the first six months that Global Imaging opened its Workflow Studio, the 6500-square foot facility hosted 16 demos and brought in over $3 million in
sales, according to Tara Lamb, president of Global Imaging. The Workflow Studio is the only showroom in the U.S. that features a full grand format
printing workflow, from pre-press to printing to finishing.
“We are thrilled at the success of our Studio and the positive feedback we’re getting from customers who benefit from seeing how the equipment all
works together. It helps them make better business decisions and gives them the opportunity to see the most current and cutting edge products
available in one area, rather than having to travel to several different manufacturing sites,” Lamb said.
The Workflow Studio demonstrates top-of-the-line products including 10’ wide printers, transfer presses for fabric sublimation, a digital flatbed cutter,
a banner welding machine, RIP software and color management technologies. The current product portfolio includes the Zünd G3 flatbed cutter,
Novus Synergia 3.2 meter UV hybrid printer, PrinterEvolution Evo33 3.2 meter water-based dye sublimation printer, Kleiverik transfer press, HP
Scitex FB500 UV flatbed printer, Caldera Grand+ RIP, Barbieri Spectro color, Hewlett-Packard L28500 Latex printer, and the Miller Weldmaster T300E.
Now, Lamb announced, they are expanding the product line to include two additional PrinterEvolution printers: an industrial class S/UV printer
and a commercial class water-based dye-sublimation printer with an on-board sublimation unit. The Studio will also add a faster warp-speed Novus
printer. “As technology changes, we have to maintain the most current products available and so updating the Studio will be a regular occurrence,”
Lamb said. She added that the environmental positioning of the products Global sells is also very important and most of the products in the Workflow
Studio have an eco-friendly aspect to them.
“Our guests have included small sign shops, large commercial printers and major franchises. The Workflow Studio underscores our commitment to
helping our customers find the right business solutions to make them successful. We’re very excited about the continued level of interest of businesses
who are hearing about us and want to take advantage of this unique opportunity.”

Global Imaging has announced the opening of its new 6500-square foot Workflow Studio, the only showroom in the U.S. that features a full grand format
printing workflow, from pre-press to printing to finishing. At recent Grand Opening events, Global hosted key industry leaders, manufacturers’ reps and
owners of some of the nation’s largest printing companies and demonstrated top-of-the-line products including 10’ wide printers, transfer presses for
fabric sublimation, a banner welding machine, RIP software and color management technologies.
“Our Studio is designed to emulate an entire grand format production facility so that a customer can see the most current and cutting edge products
available,” said Tara Lamb, president of Global Imaging. “Typically customer demonstrations done at manufacturer facilities feature a limited product
line. We recognized that it would help customers make better business decisions if they could see how the equipment all came together and worked
in conjunction with each other in an effective workflow environment. We have a pre-press area, several types of grand format printing technology, a
digital flatbed cutter, heat press for dye sublimation transfer process and a banner welder to weld banners and graphics together to produce a final
image as large as needed.”
The current product portfolio includes the Zünd G3 flatbed cutter, Novus Synergia 3.2 meter UV flatbed printer, PrinterEvolution Evo33 3.2 meter
water-based dye sublimation printer, Kleiverik transfer press, HP Scitex FB500 UV flatbed printer, Caldera Grand+ RIP, Barbieri Spectro color,
Hewlett-Packard L28500 Latex printer, and the Miller Weldmaster T300E. Lamb added that the environmental impact of the products Global
sells is also very important and most of the products in the Workflow Studio have an eco-friendly aspect to them. The product lineup will be ever-
changing as new technologies and products are introduced.
In addition to the Studio serving as a demonstration showroom, Global plans to enhance the customer experience by offering educational seminars and
events on a regular basis starting in 2013.
“Since our inception in 1995, we have always been a company focused on providing added value to our customers whether it’s improving
operational efficiencies or helping them get the best value for the money spent. The Workflow Studio underscores our commitment to helping
our customers find the right business solutions to make them successful and we’re excited to be able to offer them this opportunity.”
Global Imaging Announces National Distribution of Full Line of HP
Global Imaging Inc., the nation’s leading value added reseller and integrator of wide and grand format printing systems, has announced it will now
distribute the entire line of HP Latex and UV large-format printers and presses.
The portfolio of HP large-format solutions distributed by Global includes the HP Scitex FB500, FB700 and XP5500 Industrial Printers and the HP Scitex
FB7600 and TJ8600 Industrial Presses as well as the entire, successful line of latex printers ranging in size from 5' wide to 10' wide. Global will also
offer HP ink and media.
Greg Lamb, CEO of Global Imaging said, “We are proud to be able to offer our customers the full line of HP printers from small equipment to industrial
presses. With this expanded product line, we can continue to help all of our customers grow with truly quality products.”
“As the worldwide leader in large-format graphics, HP strives to provide our customers with technology that helps them grow their businesses and
expand into new applications,” said Todd Cromwell, vice president and general manager, Large Format Printing Americas, HP Graphics Solutions
Business. “Broadening our collaboration with Global Imaging enables us to deliver these solutions to new customers and extend our reach.”
Global Imaging, the leading value-added integrator of wide and grand format equipment and supplies, announced that it has been chosen to distribute
Asphalt Art, a unique non-slip floor and street graphics film for UV and Latex printers.
Asphalt Art, a 2011 SGIA Product of the Year winner, is a printable and flexible commercial grade, slip-resistant foil-based media that has been designed
to meet OSHA standards for general purpose, anti-slip surface applications and is certified by the National Floor Safety Institute. In addition to being
visually impactful, its single-piece construction does not require a non-slip overlaminate.
This unique media transforms ordinary ground and surface materials such as asphalt, concrete, and stone into stunning canvases, adjusting to uneven
surfaces and withstanding heavy foot and vehicle traffic.
Asphalt Art is the perfect complement to traditional large format graphics for outdoor stadiums, events, concerts, street signage, and retail graphics.
“The patented aluminum substrate technology is extremely durable and can take up to one year of foot and car traffic,” says Chris Cudzilo, director of
supplies for Global Imaging. “It’s easy to apply and easy to remove with no messy adhesives or heat application.
“Our customers have been extremely happy with their ability to place high-impact graphics in unique and demanding places.”
Tom Hopkins, owner of Alphagraphics in Hillsborough, New Jersey, was very impressed with the ease of use and impact of one Asphalt Art installation.
“We did a major hospital event with Olympic athletes to promote Healthy Living,” he says. “Each athlete signed autographs in front of four-by-seven-foot
images that were used to define their location.
“Asphalt Art was very easy to apply and looked awesome. We received many, many great comments and everyone wanted to peel it up and take it with
them. It really made the event special.”
Marcel Medved, business development director for Asphalt Art USA, said they chose Global Imaging to sell the product because of its unique customer
base and focus on media. “We were looking for a partner that could put Asphalt Art in front of a large installed UV-curable and Latex printer base,” he
says. “Global’s specialized focus on providing unique solutions has not disappointed.
