The firm offers services such as screen printing, hot foiling, laser engraving, routing, resin doming, and digital printing, manufacturing name badges for companies around the world.

Having transitioned in recent years to take advantage of the latest digital technology, the firm has already invested in a suite of Mimaki printers through Mimaki authorised partner, Sabur Ink Systems.

The firm says its continued investment in Mimaki flatbed LED UV printers has put it at the forefront of the industry, bringing new techniques and capacity to the business.

The new Mimaki UJF MkII printers have ensured that print has ceased to be the bottleneck in the business

Speaking of the latest investment, Scott Warren, Badgemaster’s manufacturing manager says: “We were astute enough at the time to make the investment. The new Mimaki printers almost trebled the throughput we could achieve, with their latest generation print heads, larger bed size and ‘logical seek’ function that reduces the time the head carriage takes to move between print areas.”

As well as completing large jobs for blue-chip companies such as John Lewis and Waitrose, the firm has developed an online ‘Badge Designer’ tool which caters for customers who require much smaller runs and one-off designs.

Managing director of Badgemaster, Ian Bradbeer says: “The new Mimaki UJF MkII printers have ensured that print has ceased to be the bottleneck in the business. We are printing four to five times faster than previously and our delivery times and customer satisfaction have improved as well.”

The company now owns eight Mimaki printers including roll-to-roll print and cut, grand-format flatbed and several of its small-format UJF models.
