Raffles' Ticket to New Business:

Photo-lab offshoot uses inkjet printers for train wraps

Big Picture

Raffles Digital Labs, an offshoot of a 50-year-old photography studio in Singapore, is using its two new VUTEk solvent-system inkjet printers to win new business-even in the midst of the global economic slowdown. Since receiving its eight-color 6.5-ft Vutek UltraVu 2600 and 10-ft UltraVu 3360 last year, the company completed eight separate train wraps over a two-month period, including interior and exterior wraps for Singapore Mass Rapid Transit. The company has also completed projects for the DHL package delivery company, Standard Chartered Bank, and the sports channel ESPN. (Raffles Digital Labs: www.raffleslabs.com)
