Launching the "AnNon." brand to market original bags - Direct printing on leather material with Mimaki printer: DAIDOHBAGSMimaki user stories
Considering the possibility of administering original printing to the leather for their products, DAIDOHBAGS was worried by the delivery time and cost of the material, since the only means available to the company at the time was to outsource the work.
With the introduction of "UJF-6042MkII e" UV printer, the company acquired the capability to provide the original leather prints in-house, solving the problems of delivery time and cost. DAIDOHBAGS now plans to start marketing products under their own brand.

With the increasing number of requests for printing on three-dimensional objects that cannot be handled by roll-type inkjet printers, the company was faced with the problem of being unable to handle such jobs with short delivery times by outsourcing, and suffering many failures in terms of quality.
By introducing a flatbed UV printer and cutting plotters, they are now able to meet short delivery times and directly print on a variety of commercial goods, which was not possible before. This has led to an increase in new orders in the novelty field. Another advantage is that they can easily create prototypes in-house. In the future, they hope to highly promote UV printing and stay closer to their customers.

Penmasu-tosouten Co., Ltd. (Kuwana City, Mie) : UCJV300-160Mimaki user stories
Although mainly engaged in painting by hand, we have more orders for signboard that has been outsourced. To respond to delivery time and to perform minor design change efficiently, in-house production has become necessary. With our skilled employees nearing retirement, we aimed for standardization by machine.
The first inkjet printer we installed is Mimaki's UCJV300-160. There are many jobs with short delivery times, and the UV printer that requires no drying time has good work efficiency and is appreciated by customers as well. Its cutting function is also appealing, which enables the printer to play two roles, allowing us to reduce the installation space and make our business extensive.

Although having responded to sheet-type advertisements such as outdoor graphics, outside posters, wallpaper, and graphics on floor, we were in need of another way of production as more requests for three-dimensional sign displays and sales promotion items for stores.
UV print using UCJV300-160 allows us to respond to various media. We were impressed by beautiful color development of Mimaki's white ink whose color density is high with no color mixture. It is used on wrapping film for vehicles, as well as on wallpaper and window film.
