August 23, 2010 // Franchising.com // Augusta, GA – Packing an extensive background from Corporate America, Lane Keen launched Keen Signs & Graphics in Augusta, GA with tons of business acumen plus years of active membership in two Chambers of Commerce at his fingertips.
Stepping immediately to the forefront of his chosen industry, Keen furnished his new sign business with a truly remarkable new printer - Roland's high-performance VS 640 inkjet printer/cutter, their fastest, most advanced full-color printer / cutter to date.
The VS-640 brings integrated printing and contour cutting capabilities, next generation print head technology and accelerated print speeds all in a 64" platform. Not to mention the metallic flair of award winning new inks.
Available in three ink configurations, it is also capable of printing white text, graphics and floods and hundreds of brilliant metallic colors for premium graphics and wraps. The purchase of the VS-640 adds a powerful production tool to Lane Keen's brand new business.
Lane Keen is one of the newest members of Sign Biz International, the world's largest chain of non-franchised imaging sign companies. Featuring Metallic Silver ECO-SOL MAX ink, the industry's first metallic silver eco-solvent ink, the VS-640 allows Keen, the first member of the Sign Biz Network to utilize the new product, to take full advantage of Roland's advanced inkjet technology. Metallic Silver ECO-SOL MAX ink has been recognized as a DPI Product of the Year, an accolade reflecting its exceptional image quality. With thousands of metallic colors available to him, Keen has the capability of adding value and sophistication to any graphic or marketing message.
Roland's all-new Silver Ink allows Keen to begin his new business venture printing a wide range of true metallics. He can combine Metallic Silver with CMYK to create an entire spectrum of metallic hues including gold, bronze and a host of pearlescent colors. This breakthrough silver ink technology delivers high density and enables Keen to create stunning effects on vinyl, paper, PET film, banner and even canvas for both indoor and outdoor display. The Wow-factor accompanying these new metallic inks when one sees them up on a wall for the first time is nothing short of dazzling. Ideal for showcasing premium stickers, window decorations, POP displays, signs, banners, posters and high-end murals, these applications promise to generate significant revenue for Keen Signs & Graphics as well as open up lucrative new markets for a distinctly competitive advantage.
It's a new age of signs out there and Keen arrives armed for success.
