As part of our long term investment in the best technology VGL have installed the state of the art Durst Rho 512R.

Featuring Quadro Array 12M print head technology and droplet sizes of 12 pictoliters, the Rho 512R sets new quality standards for extra wide high end ink jet printers. Equipped with Variodrop technology and light cyan and magenta, the Rho 512R uses multiple impulses for modulating droplet size. The result is unmatched quality at industrial speeds.

Sitting alongside the Durst P10 and 512, VGL have eight Durst machines in operation providing unrivalled capacity, quality and conformity to our customers.
As part of a current £2m investment programme VGL continues to underline its commitment to providing the best quality, value and service.

If you would like to arrange a factory visit to see this outstanding machine in action and take a closer look at our digital print factories please send us an enquiry.

For us, this year’s VM & Display Show was all about celebrations. An incredible 40 years’ in the business has seen many changes. From the humble beginnings above a sweet store to expanding into 4 factories, we’re proud to be at the forefront of print design.

Our stand was the chance to celebrate what we’re best at. We demonstrated our soft signage capabilities with a huge back wall fabric frame lightbox. Printed on our Durst Rhotex 320, the advantages of using our water based ink system and dye sublimation process were evident in the vibrant colours and solid black of the image.

Our timeline displayed some key points through our 40 year history, running from the top of the fabric wall and then onto our direct printed plywood floor, constructed from panels of 18mm plywood.

Perhaps the most noteworthy aspect of our stand was the giant cardboard engineered “40”. Spearheaded by our skilled in house studio, the two massive numerals were engineered to be free standing and incorporated elements of printed vinyls, cardboard engineering and other specialist vinyl films that were pulled together to make an incredible impact.

We had a great show, it was a brilliant opportunity to connect with so many new and current customers and introduce the range of services we can offer at VGL.

If you didn't get the chance to visit us at the show, we'd be happy to discuss your print requirements. Give us a ring on 0118 922 1300 or email us at sales@vgl.co.uk.

This year’s VM & Display Show was a brilliant event and it was great to see lots of new faces, as well as a few familiar ones.

Our textured wall vinyl created a lot of attention as well as our bold fabric graphics and cardboard bears (designs courtesy of paperwolf). The phrase we kept hearing was; “it really pops!”…
Thanks to our high quality flatbed printing and new technology in textile printing, the quality and versatility of print clearly made an impression.

We’re looking forward to hearing from everyone we met at the show and we can’t wait to see what opportunities lay ahead! We hope to see you all next year.
