Masterpiece Graphix, a digital material manufacturer and treatment center, has partnered with 3M Commercial Graphics to treat and distribute 3M’s digitally printable materials. The relationship will give Masterpiece Graphix’s customers access to digitally-treated roll and sheet materials from 3M Commercial Graphics, including films used for walls, floors, windows, and almost any other types of space branding applications.
“MGX is extremely excited to partner with 3M Commercial Graphics,” says Dan Lawellin, national sales manager of Masterpiece Graphix. “Through this relationship, our companies can now jointly offer sheet and roll substrates that weren’t previously available to the digital press industry.”
"3M Commercial Graphics is an innovator in technologies that make graphic material installations easier,” says Adam Larson, marketing supervisor at 3M. “We are excited to bring these technologies to the narrow web market for the emerging trend of space branding and other applications where a novice installer may have to lay down graphics. We feel that MGX's insight and experience into coating a wide variety of materials will only increase the speed at which 3M Commercial Graphics enters the narrow format market."
Masterpiece Graphix will be able to offer stocked products as well as proprietary custom constructions to HP Indigo, Xerox iGen, Kodak Nexpress, and other digital press users. Masterpiece Graphix will also toll-coat products for 3M Commercial Graphics under this agreement.
Fenton, MO-based Masterpiece Graphix is a digital substrate manufacturer, providing products for liquid toner, dry toner, and inkjet digital press technologies. 3M Commercial Graphics, which is based in St. Paul, MN, USA, manufactures and markets 3M products used to produce graphics for the large-format.
