Mimaki added to our range

12 November 2018

Mimaki Australia Pty Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of Sign Essentials Pty Ltd as its newest dealer.  The dealership covers all products in the Mimaki range in the regions of Queensland, Northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory. 

“We are delighted with our Mimaki appointment” says Sean Strange, General Manager of Sign Essentials.  “Mimaki has some fantastic products that fill a few gaps in our existing offerings.  We’re particularly excited with the new UCJV300-160 and UCJV150-160.  These innovative printer/cutters with UV-cured inks offer the ability to output high quality graphics in excellent time without the need to out-gas.   This decreases production times significantly which is great because we all know deadlines are getting shorter and shorter!”

Sign Essentials will be a one-stop-shop for Mimaki, offering sales, training, support and service as they do with their existing range of products.  “The way we do it now works well” says Solomon Ferreira, Service Manager at Sign Essentials.  “Customers like being able to contact our team with any enquiry, knowing we can help them sort it out.  We regularly visit most parts of Queensland and Northern NSW already, so it will be easy for us to add our new Mimaki customers to the trips.”  

Sign Essentials and Mimaki representatives have met several times over the last few weeks and have quickly developed an excellent working relationship.  “We’ve been very impressed with the professionalism of the team at Mimaki” says Sean Strange.  “It was a big decision for us and Mimaki have respected the process we had to go through.  We’re definitely not replacing what we had, for us it was very important we add to our offerings and are able to offer more choice to our customers.  We feel we can achieve these objectives with the Mimaki range.” 

“Mimaki Australia is proud to have Sign Essentials on board with the brand” explains Jason Hay – National Sales Manager Mimaki Australia. “The excitement with the opening of our new showroom at Murarrie and partnering with Sign Essentials shows the commitment from Mimaki moving forward in Queensland.  Sign Essentials has great experience in the Queensland market, especially in sales and service in Brisbane and far north Queensland. The respect that Sign Essentials has in the Queensland market, was a clear factor in adding this partnership to join our existing network. This has certainly strengthened the Mimaki model and presence for sure.”

Mimaki products are available from Sign Essentials now.  Their showroom is located at 20 Prosperity Place, Geebung.  Sign Essentials has been selling to, supporting and servicing the Queensland sign and graphics industries since 1991.

Thank you to all our customers for your support throughout 2017.

Be safe and have a wonderful festive season!

We have moved - Open from 4th December

4 December 2017

After 24 years at our previous location Sign Essentials has moved!  In the past we have renovated, added new units and expanded wherever possible.  But we've stretched that to the limit and it was time to move.

We're haven't gone far!  The new location is 20 Prosperity Place, Geebung.  It's only 650 metres around the corner from where we were before.  The phone number, fax number and email all stay the same.

Thank you for your understanding through November as we transitioned.

Please keep in mind the new address for deliveries, pickups and demonstrations.

Unfortunately we will be closed on Friday the 1st December primarily due to lack of phones and internet.  We'll be open again on Monday the 4th December in the new facility.

Thank you for your understanding through this month as we transition - we will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.  Once we've moved the benefits will be amazing!
