AkyPrint® Black Surface Polypropylene Sheets Provide a Solution for a New Market Trend
DS Smith Plastics’ France conducted testing of their black polypropylene printing sheets with a leading printing company to create a dynamic solution that brings out the best colours for every solution, even glossy white.
DS Smith Plastics, Extruded Products worked with Hewlett-Packard to design and develop black polypropylene printing sheets for their brand-new HP Latex R2000 printer with white inks.
DS Smith Plastics’, AkyPrint® polypropylene sheets with black surface made for a dramatic contrast of image and great resolution. The new combination of the black printing surface and HP Latex printer open new opportunities in the market. With DS Smith Plastics’ AkyPrint brand of polypropylene printing surfaces, rigid black signages will remain neatly displayed for longer regardless of weather conditions in the area.
The idea of using black printing surfaces and white ink comes from recent printing and display trends using dark backgrounds with contrasting images, content and logotypes in white. Due to the properties of this material such as water-resistance and its smooth finished surface, AkyPrint polypropylene sheets are a good fit to keep printed signs easy to read for years.
The use of black also opens new opportunities in a competitive market for signage in areas like museums and decoration projects. With advantages such as its weather-resistance and durability, AkyPrint is an ideal solution for this new demand in the market.
Listening and adapting to new trends and challenges in the market is a signature of both companies.
