Hopkins Printing Expands Wide Format

COLUMBUS, OH (June 22, 2012) €“ Hopkins Printing is excited to announce the completion of a major renovation which has significantly expanded their products and services offered.  The additional space houses new wide format printing and finishing equipment.  Hopkins has added a Roland SolJet printer, a Zund router and a Rollsroller flatbed mounting and laminating system. This combination of new equipment will enable Hopkins to produce top-of-the-line wide format work for their entire customer base.

Hopkins is pleased to welcome Mike Barrett to the team.  Mike will be managing the additional space and wide format equipment.  Mike describes his career as starting at the bottom in 1988 and working his way up while learning our trade.  Over the past 18 years, he has managed wide format divisions for two separate graphics companies in Central Ohio.  Our customers will recognize his knowledge and creative expertise as we move into this new market.

Hopkins will be producing vinyl banners, POP signage, repositionable floor decals and various other wide format signs.  The new equipment can also produce retractable banners as well as indoor and outdoor banners with welded edges.  These signs can be mounted to substrates such as foam core or styrene to create rigid signage for a variety of needs.  Other opportunities include static cling, concrete vinyl, window perf, and much more.  In Mike€™s words, €œIf you can dream it, we can print it.€

The Hopkins Printing Wide Format division anticipates adding additional equipment which will include a flatbed printer for increased efficiency in producing new signage.  Hopkins looks forward to all of the creative opportunities this new growth will bring.
