New HD Chromatic Sequins

Shimmerdisc have developed a new non metallic sequin with amazing HD print results. the sequin has an ultra high glaze surface and is reverse printed unlike the conventional metallic sequin which is surface printed.

We found that the metallic sequins are great for locations such as Bars, Clubs and areas away from direct natural light but due to the nature of the highly metallic surface under certain conditions the reflection can make it difficult to see the image.

Our new HD Chromatic sequins offer both amazing image clarity ( even at a small scale display ) whilst the image surface reflects light and produces the shimmer.

We also have a new Matt sequin for customers wanting a more subtle effect.

AGFA partners with Shimmerdisc

I’m always on the look out for applications in our industry that allow creativity from our UV flat bed technologies. Every now and then, a new idea comes along that stops you in your tracks. One of these moments occurred recently while I was walking around the Sign & Digital exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham. The Shimmerdisc image of David Bowie immediately caught my eye with the stunning effect of the sequin displays. In addition to the visual aspect, Shimmerdisc is an application that is perfectly suited to our Agfa UV flat bed products such as our Anapurna range and the Jeti Mira and the Tauro. When the two are combined, the fusion of the photographic quality from our product’s along with the creative attributes of Shimmerdisc, create a final printed result that is visually amazing.

Shimmerdisc is a perfect example of a product that will take display imagery to a higher level.

With over 5000 sequins per square metre, Shimmerdisc offers Photographic quality shimmering brilliance using thousands of light-reflecting discs to create inspiring, eye-catching moving image displays. It is used to add the WOW factor to Boardrooms, VIP nightclub walls, Home Art, Retail POS, Outdoor Display, Theatre, Exhibitions, Gigs. Modular and scalable.

Each disc is individually printed creating pixel-perfect images.

 “Our patented modular disc display can be custom printed – plain or reflective,” says Andrew Ainge, founder and inventor of Shimmerdisc. “The bigger the display the more impact it has. A 1000 x 1000mm display is the smallest we will do – 5625 discs. Wall Installations typically have around 100,000+ discs. Truly stunning.”
