SOS, GMG Color and Vivid are teaming up for an Open House Event to be held on 6th and 7th September at Vivid’s showroom in Ashby De La Zouch, Leicestershire.

“THE 3 CARD TRICK” event will produce a range of wide format print on some of the latest Roland TrueVIS print/cut machines supplied by SOS, driven by GMG’s colour control and workflow software. Samples will then be cut, folded and laminated on Vivid’s VeloBlade range of equipment, enabling visitors to take away a finished product, including a souvenir boxed deck of laminate playing cards.

SOS Director Ashley Fleming: “The inkjet large format print market is projected to grow significantly over the course of the next few years, and we want our customers to be best positioned to take advantage of this growth. We are delighted to join forces with GMG Color and VIvid to demonstrate a complete large format workflow using the latest handpicked Roland machines. It’s a great opportunity for any printer to investigate the latest wide format technology and future-proof their business, whether they are experienced or thinking of taking this market on for the first time.”
