Mac Papers announced today that it is a full-line distributor of Gandy Digital, a global print manufacturer that specializes in large-format digital print production. The agreement solidifies Mac Papers as the exclusive distributor of Gandy Digital’s complete equipment line to customers across the Southeastern U.S.
The addition of Gandy Digital’s line augments Mac Papers’ wide-format offering across several segments, including UV, dye-sublimation and solvent. Mac Papers now offers Gandy Digital’s range of UV hybrids, UV high-capacity production printers, direct-to-textile dye-sublimation printers and roll-to-roll printers. Additionally, the company now carries Gandy Digital’s full line of proprietary inks, which use the lowest volume per square foot in the industry.
“Our relationship with Gandy Digital aligns with Mac Papers’ long-term strategy of offering a full lineup of solutions in every wide-format segment,” said Marty Davis, Director of Wide Format & Graphics. “Delivering Gandy Digital’s innovative print technology through our distribution network and service offering further legitimizes Mac Papers as a leading partner for entry-level through high-volume print providers.”
The agreement underscores Mac Papers’ commitment to becoming the premier distributor for the commercial print industry. It follows September’s announcement of Mimaki and the 2014 additions of Mutoh and Kodak as new equipment and material suppliers.
“Gandy Digital is proud to partner with Mac Papers in the Southeastern U.S and add our lineup of flatbed, hybrid, textile, and roll-to-roll printers to its portfolio,” said Hary Gandy, President Gandy Digital. “Printers today want to expand their business opportunities and grow into new markets through wide format. We look forward to delivering them cutting-edge technology through Mac Papers’ logistics platform.”
Along with participating in a full Gandy Digital training program, Mac Papers technicians and wide-format specialists will provide on-site installation and workflow expertise. In addition, Mac Papers offers a wide range of substrates compatible with Gandy Digital’s equipment including rigid materials, banner rolls and fabrics.
In support of this partnership, Mac Papers will feature Gandy Digital’s equipment at the SGIA Expo, Nov. 4-6 in Atlanta, providing attendees with live demonstrations of the entry-level Sl8te UV Hybrid printer.
