18 • May 2017 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S NanoLumens Inducted into Norcross Business Hall of Fame Atlanta-based NanoLumens, makers of custom-built indoor and outdoor LED displays for a variety of markets, announces its induction into the 2017 Norcross Business Hall of Fame after receiving the 2017 "Best of Norcross Award" in the man- ufacturers category for the third year in a row. Norcross is a Georgia city that is a part of the Atlanta metro area. According to the company's announcement, NanoLumens' products are designed, assembled and supported in the United States. The company does not outsource their sup- port or service, and most employees live locally and give back to their community. All customer calls for questions or sup- port are routed to real people in their headquarters at their Norcross location. CMYUK Named as Ritrama Distributor UK-based CMYUK, a distributor of wide-format supplies and equipment, announces that it is now the official UK distribu- tor for Italy-based Ritrama's range of self-adhesive materials. As part of the distribution agreement, CMYUK is fully con- versant with HP's Latex certifications for Ritrama products. This will preclude any issues arising when working with inte- rior and exterior materials across all environments. According to the two companies, the announcement marks another important move by both as they increase their impact on the digital printing segment, in line with the demand for new and innovative applications and opportuni- ties for end-users. Global Imaging Hosts its 10th VIP Event Louisville, Colorado-based Global Imaging, a value-added reseller and integrator of wide- and grand-format printing systems, recently held its 10th Workflow Studio VIP event, and used it to introduce its newest portfolio partner, Israel- based MASSIVit 3D Printing Technologies. It was announced in February that Global Imaging had received U.S. distribution rights for MASSIVit's printers. The recent VIP event was attended by more than 70 printing and textile business owners and manufacturer's reps from 18 states across the country. Global now has the MASSIVit 1800 3D printer in its Workflow Studio demonstration facility, and guests got a look at it for the first time at this event. "The Massivit 1800 is a real showstopper," Lamb says. "Not only is it huge and fun to watch in action, but it gets the cre- ative juices flowing. We were part of many exciting conversa- tions about the potential to reinvent POP and display adver- tising with this amazing printer." Along with MASSIVit, manufacturer reps from Aleyant tFlow, Caldera, Zünd, Durst, PrinterEvolution and Aberdeen Fabrics also attended the event. The next Workflow Studio VIP Event will be held July 12-13; contact Global Imaging if interested. Bolger Vision Beyond Print Becomes SGP-Certified The Sayville, New York-based Sustainable Green Printing Partnership, a nonprofit organization that provides sustain- ability certification in the graphics communication industry, announces that Minneapolis-based Bolger Vision Beyond Print is its newest certified printing facility. Bolger is a full-service print shop that has a variety of cli- ents in different industries. In order to earn its certification, Bolger was required to undergo an independent third-party certification audit aligning it with the published SGP criteria. All certified facilities must pass environmental, health and safety, and energy audits, in addition to conducting indoor air quality tests. Facilities also must maintain documentation strategy for best management practices and should have a team of employees in place to coordinate sustainability efforts. Bolger Vision Beyond Print is the 68th SGP-certified facility in the United States.
