This video shows the arrival of a 4x8’ test print from the Mutoh VJ-1638UH UV-curing wide-format inkjet printer. The test prints have a nice variety of colors.

The package is unwrapped by a 3-year old who is helping us learn what kids like as teaching tools. Shaila learned the alphabet while still two years and six months old, with Dr Nicholas testing a wide variety of teaching methods. The nice thing about these large-format letters, is that with them we can do videos that will allow us to help thousands of pre-school children.

We have a team developing books, animated videos, and other means to help students learn ABCs. One of the many ways we help children learn is with page-size enlargements of the letters. We take these to schools so the students can do the ABC song-and-dance holding these letters.

Reds were great (reds are awful on print samples of many brands at most trade shows). Yellow was true yellow (not green-yellow “UV-cured flavor”). All the colors were fine.

The USA office of the Japanese printer manufacturer Mutoh is doing test prints with their Mutoh VJ-1638UH UV-curing wide-format inkjet printer, using US11 flexible ink.

These ABC to Z, and numbers, are printed by Mutoh on rigid substrates courtesy of PALRAM. We needed a material that would not immediately break or fall apart when the school children play with them.

We thank Ken Parsley, Mutoh America Inc for printing and cutting these samples. We appreciate the donation of rigid material by PALRAM. They had a nice booth at ISA. I estimate they will also be at SGIA. You can find PALRAM printable materials at other expos around the world. Brenda Hogan is Director of Marketing, Palram Americas.

It was nice to see the Mutoh booth at ISA 2017: they had the brand and model information directly on top of the printer. If you put the banner alongside, you don’t know whether it is for the printer to the right or to the left of the banner stand. So it definitely helps to have the identification physically on top of the printer.

We hope to see Mutoh America and Palram Americas at SGIA this autumn.
