Vivid Laminating Technologies Ltd.

The Veloblade Nexus, a gamechanger for Nettl Digiprint.

Established in 1987 as the Digiprint group, Nettl now have 2 high street branches - “Nettl Print and Design Studios” located in Bath and “Nettl Signs & Graphics” located in Chippenham, a production factory for signs and displays.

In December 2022 Nettl moved to a brand-new larger production facility to continue to grow their sign manufacturing range and have since invested over half a million pounds in infrastructure and equipment.

Why were Nettl in the market for a new system?

Their main goal with investment was to focus on their eco ranges of signs and print, and invest in the latest technologies to fulfil the growing sector of sustainable print and signs. Having previously outsourced most of their CNC and cutting work, they found that delays in production and varying quality issues stopped their workflow. They needed to improve both the quality and keep control of production with their own in-house services.

Why did they decide to implement a Vivid system?

Having been a customer of Vivid for many years, Nettl felt confident in the quality, service and support from the team.   They had investigated other big brand manufacturers for flat bed cutting and CNC. After having tested and seen the Veloblade Nexus in action, they were far more impressed with the build quality, range of functions and value for money that the Nexus had to offer.

“The Veloblade Nexus is a robust, versatile and affordable piece of kit. We have only scratched the surface of what it can do so far, and we are discovering new solutions for our customers daily. The option to keep all production in-house has drastically sped up production times, kept quality high and exceeded customer expectations. We are yet to find a substrate the Nexus cannot handle and have even thrown it a few curveballs with various woods, plastics and roll medias. It has rapidly sped up production for sign boards, banners and posters which are an everyday staple product. But we have also been able to produce short run packaging, prototypes, and direct print and cut products that were previously unavailable.

The Veloblade Nexus has been a gamechanger for our business and if anyone is in the market to install flatbed cutting and finishing, I cannot recommend this enough. From the offset, Duncan in sales was great and really helped with options and information. The install team of Jason and Matt were professional but really friendly and explained everything clearly with great tips and tricks to get the best out of the Nexus and its range of tools and blades.”
