Testing assures compatibility with major printer manufacturers
Master Magnetics, Inc. features the industry’s widest options for wide-format printing directly on to flexible magnetic material. Available in 42” and 24” widths, PrintMagnetVinyl™ allows for high-resolution printing directly on flexible magnetic material with solvent, eco-solvent and UV printers.
PrintMagnetVinyl™ saves time and money printing direct to magnet instead of printing on a substrate (vinyl or paper, etc.) and then laminating it to the flexible magnetic sheeting. Another traditional method has been to print on non-magnetized magnetic material, and then magnetize it, also a more time-consuming, two-step process.
Over the past year, Master Magnetics has partnered with major printer manufacturers to test their flexible magnetic sheeting. “Working with manufacturers to test our material has proven to be extremely valuable,” said Melissa Thompson, sales manager with Master Magnetics. “Now, individual sign and print shop owners don’t have to determine magnetic material compatibility on their own. The knowledge that high quality results can be achieved with their printer eliminates the trial and error guess work, provides assurance and confidence in the process, and opens up the opportunity for an entire new profit center for their business,” Thompson said. New business opportunities that flexible magnetic sheeting provides include a variety of indoor and outdoor applications such as POP displays, signage, message boards, and promotional items such as magnetic business cards, menus, calendars, sports schedules and vehicle graphics.
Testing for compatibility and quality has been completed with many international printer manufacturers including Mutoh, EFI/Vutek, Gerber Scientific Products, HP, SII – Seiko Instruments USA, Mimaki, Integra/Grapo, Canon, and is in process with other well-known brands.
Master Magnetic’s PrintMagnetVinyl™ sheeting is available in thicknesses of .015”, .020” and .030”, widths of 24” and 42”, standard roll lengths of 10 and 25 ft. and can be cut, slit or die cut for customized widths and lengths.
“In addition to having the industry’s only 42”-wide magnetic sheeting, our custom converting capabilities can meet the requirements of unique applications and is a valuable service we offer our customers,” says Thompson.
Master Magnetics also offers ZipGrip™ flexible magnetic sheeting that can be laminated with a variety of high quality topcoats, such as vinyl or paper, depending on the required function of the magnet. For more information, visit magnetsource.com.
