Award-winning large, wide and superwide format digital print specialist grows with ONYX

Imaginators use ONYX Thrive to help create stunning giant graphics for iconic events

The team at Imaginators, a UK specialist in large, wide and superwide format digital print solutions, knows that accuracy, speed and colour consistency are all essential for creating the kind of stunning results their clients have come to expect.

The company serves market sectors including music, events, experiential, sport, retail, exhibition and outdoor advertising and says that their highly efficient workflow and the consistency and quality of output rely on using ONYX Thrive, which they’ve scaled up as the business has developed.

Matt Tydeman, Managing Director at Imaginators said: “ONYX Thrive is a uniquely scalable solution and has grown with our business. It has become the end-to-end workflow solution we have come to rely upon to ensure maximum productivity and accuracy whilst avoiding costly downtime.

“With ONYX supporting our workflow we can ensure image and colour accuracy, with superfast image processing and production speeds, and consistent colour across multiple industrial output devices.

“We particularly enjoy the functionality of a true end-to-end Adobe PDF workflow from file submission through to colour management, printing and automated cutting, which brings peace of mind to reducing proofing cycles, reprints and providing a ‘right first time’ output.”

Imaginators work closely with brands and their agencies to provide end-to-end solutions, often using giant graphics. During 2018, its projects have included some of the most iconic music festivals in the UK and high-profile sporting events.

This is a huge advantage which helps ensure we meet deadlines and maintain our quality and service standards.
