CPI Graphics will kick off its first Victorian regional tour in Bendigo on 7th February, where the company will host an event to showcase the award-winning HP Designjet L25500 printer from HP.

David Booth, General Manager, CPI Graphics said the aim of the five date regional tour was to provide those printers outside of the capital cities with an opportunity to view the HP Designjet L25500, which in 2010 was rated “exceptional” by BERTL who awarded the printer five stars.

“We canvassed a number of printers in regional areas who told us it isn’t always possible for them to travel to the city, but they’d welcome the opportunity to check out the HP Latex inks solutions if we could come to them. So we’re putting the printer and a range of print samples into a van and going on the road.”

The road trip is set to include Bendigo, Ballarat, Warrnambool, Geelong and Sale. Booth said that if the Victorian leg was successful, they would consider taking to the road in NSW also.

“We haven’t done an event like this before so we are keen to see what kind of response we get from the regional printers. Certainly initial interest indicates that we will have a good turn out in each centre.”

HP Product Specialist Jeremy Brew will join the CPI team on the tour. They will demonstrate the printer’s competitive positioning and its capabilities across a range of media.

Of Brew’s attendance Booth said, “Jeremy has a wealth of knowledge and will be available to talk about the various opportunities that exist for HP Latex ink technology. This in itself is a unique opportunity for regional printers to enter into one on one discussions with Jeremy who is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable people in large format printing”.
