SPGPrints has appointed ColorScreen as its agent for southern Africa, and who will now supply its rotary screen printing technologies, principally for label printing applications.

ColorScreen has represented several leading machine and materials suppliers in the graphics, screen, pad and digital printing industries since it was established in 1981 by Hans Vogt.

Employing 21 full-time staff at offices in Cape Town and Durban, and supported by sub-distributors across the region, ColorScreen will provide a fast, local supply of rotary screens and related consumable products, technical consultancy, training programs and maintenance. Additionally, the Cape Town facility will provide a fast engraving service for re-imaging SPGPrints’ RotaMesh non-woven nickel screens.

SPGPrints’ rotary screen printing technology has enabled converters supplying consumer goods, wines and spirits markets to incorporate a variety of added-value features that give labels and packages a distinctive look and feel. High-impact effects include glossy, matte and tactile varnishes, vibrant colors, rich opaque colors, metallic effects and functional features from braille to anti-counterfeit options.

SPGPrints’ rotary screen products, including the new RotaMesh Glitter Screen, will be presented at Labelexpo Europe 2017.
