    OKI goes on the road..

    Examples

    In the last few months, OKI has organised roadshows across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to educate more people about the benefits of our amazing printers while keeping existing customers up to date with our latest innovations.

    KSA is oMahmood with exhibitne of the major countries in the region with a huge potential for expansion, the size of the country, the industrial cities and the massive government spend on IT are all factors that contributed to us wanting to do these events, meet the people and hear what it is they really need in terms of printers in their workplace. It was really exciting to see how many people are looking to increase efficiency and productivity while keeping costs down!

    The industries represented included Governments, Hospitals, GA and Education. They were extremely interested in our latest advancements in printing solutions; especially the ground-breaking White Toner. Chairing the talks was Abdallah Obeidat, Sales Manager for KSA, who spoke of how our new generation printers and MPS efficiently manage work flow while remaining being fast, robust, reliable and environmentally friendly.Boudi Sleeman and winner

    The events ended with a raffle draw for 50 printers of various models. The winners were presented with a model printer to hold onto until the real printers were delivered to their companies the next day. Boudi, here on the left, from our distributor Al Eqtessad, making it look very easy!

    White Toner..whatever next!

    It was over 35 years ago when IBM introduced the first toner-based printer and nearly that long since people started using toner copiers and printers as a way of digitally transferring images or photographs onto material. The simple method of using laser printed heat transfers has allowed businesses to personalise any kind of promotional item they can think of, from mugs to umbrellas to shopping bags.

    However this has always been limited to white/ light coloured backgrounds, that is until OKI decided to remove this barrier to creativity and design!OKI White Toner Products

    As shown by our partners The Magic Touch and Forever at Sign Graphics and Imaging Middle East (SGI Dubai 2013), the new white toner-based products are versatile, easy to use and, as there is no drying time required, enable much faster and more cost-effective printing than the traditional inkjet or dye-sublimation technologies. At the same time, the robust solid print output is just as good as foil blocking, making it a credible in-house solution for a wide range of white print applications.

    Magic Touch MerchandiseFrom small business printing single t-shirts on demand to large screen printers looking for a fast and effective alternative, using the white toner printer allows almost anything to print on dark coloured garments or other dark coloured substrates without any cutting required. This versatile system can also be used in industrial production for items such as printing on wood, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, carton or other coloured substrates. Printed output offers consistent high quality and robust performance, as it is scratch resistant compared to inkjet-based competitors.Leather bag sample from Forever
