Barefoot Graphics has further expanded its reach into wide-format print markets with its acquisition of a new UV-curable flatbed inkjet printer manufactured by Japanese-based Mimaki Engineering Co.

According to Harry Frauenfelder, President of Barefoot Graphics, "It is clear our wide-format department is expanding.

We specifically chose a printer that would meet the speed, quality and size demands of our customers."

The newly acquired UV printer is capable of printing directly onto numerous rigid substrates, exceeding dimensions of 5'x10' and up to 2" thick. Utilizing a 6-color ink set plus white ink, the printer produces bright, vibrant colors on all types of substrates, including, but not limited to: acrylic, PVC, vinyl, aluminum, corrugated plastic, wood, fiberglass and foam. The ink is instantly cured via dual UV lamps, enabling immediate handling and packaging. With a maximum resolution of 1200x1200 dpi, the image quality produced is near photographic, suitable for indoor/outdoor sign and display graphics for both far and close viewing distances.

"This is such an exciting time at Barefoot Graphics," says Josh Frauenfelder, Vice President and General Manager. "The businesses and organizations of Southern Maryland now have access to a vast range of visual display possibilities and indoor/outdoor sign applications. By choosing a flatbed printer that is capable of printing white ink, we are now printing on clear, colored and metallic substrates such as glass and brushed aluminum. Barefoot Graphics is achieving a more efficient workflow and our customers are benefiting from a higher level of quality and local service."

In the upcoming months, more UV-printable products will be added to their e-commerce website, In the meantime, all sample requests and estimates wishing to utilize UV printing should be directed to Mr. Josh Frauenfelder who may be reached at 301-862-5157 x114 or emailed at
