Blue Sky Printing Case Study
The sky's the limit for Blue Sky Printing with Epson & Tetenal.
Previous experience gained in the photo retail market enabled James Callaghan to know exactly what equipment he needed when it came to opening his own store.
Blue Sky Printing
Blue Sky Printing opened their doors inside Meadows Shopping Centre in Chelmsford in March 2015 and have had Epson equipment from the very beginning. Starting off their business with an Epson D700 Printer and the Epson Stylus Pro 9900 Inkjet large-format printer, the photo retail store has recently upgraded their equipment.
Store owner James Callaghan explains: “In April we purchased a D7 Photo Studio Kiosk and an Epson P9000 large-format printer from Tetenal and I have to say both machines work perfectly and are extremely reliable.”
With 10 years of experience in the photo retail industry, James has gained trust in the Epson brand over the years which has further grown since opening Sky Blue Printing last year.
“I have always worked with Epson and to me the quality of prints is simply unique! That’s why I had no doubt when upgrading our photo printing equipment. In my opinion the quality of competitive ink jet printers simply doesn’t marry up with Epson’s machines.”
In addition to the usual customer coming into the store for every serving professional photographers. James is delighted by their judgement on his Epson printers:
“It’s great to see that the Epson D700 even fulfils professional photographers’ needs. We had feedback that the print quality actually comes close to the C- Type print (chromogenic colour print) while being a much quicker process with the photographic print being done within seconds.”
Apart from the quality of photo products printed with Epson equipment, James and his team have also always been concerned about how the printers visually fit into their store:
“It might sound silly but I think within a retail environment it’s actually really important that the equipment nicely fits into the entire store atmosphere. Here at Sky Blue Printing our aim is to create a modern and clean environment, inviting the customer to have a look at the range of different products we display in our store. I must say the modern Epson printers match this space much more than any other printer I’ve seen from competitive brands.”
TETENAL - PERFECT PARTNERS FOR EPSON EQUIPMENT
James also emphasises how Tetenal have supported him in making the right equipment choice for his business:
“We have been really happy with the help Tetenal have offered us when picking our new printers. The first one we purchased was the Epson D700 which really took our business to the next level, making us a full service photo shop.”
