The Gans Ink and Supply Co. is approaching the age of 70! Our Digital division began with a business model of equipment and consumable sales into the inkjet sublimation market (mostly for apparel and specialty products). What differentiated us from the rest, however, was our technical support capabilities borne out of our core competency in the chemistry and color gamut of sublimation dyes. This knowledge base was garnered from our vast experience, and market leadership, in manufacturing offset sublimation inks beginning in the 1970’s.
Today, Gans Digital’s scope includes the sales and keen technical support of printers, cutters, laminators, software and media. We are proven solutions specialists, but our secret weapon was the hiring of Josh Cormany in 2015. Also known by his internet handle, Bigfish Digital, Josh is an inventor of specialty media for wide format applications. Working directly with manufacturers to create proprietary products, he changes his visions to reality. This past year his vision came to life with the introduction of XBase, Holographic Window Perf, and iDot! These are his first offerings, but we have many more products coming down the runway. Watch the skies in 2018 and beyond!

New Wide Format Media
Just like the “magnetic wall” solutions currently available, you simply apply a sheet of adhesive XBase over your wall, window, or board like you would with a magnetic paint or adhesive magnet material, EXCEPT our material is NOT MAGNETIC. XBase is a proprietary and revolutionary new material that makes your wall, window, or board a BUBBLE-FREE installation area with the ULTRA-REMOVABILITY of ANY permanent vinyl of your choice. No longer do you have to pay for “specialty” adhesives or expensive magnetic receptive media. Simply print your standard permanent non-bubble-free adhesive vinyl and apply it to your XBase wall, window, or board.
Wood Grain Film
Gans Digital Wood Grain Film has a strikingly realistic and natural-looking finish. Our product is unique in its manufacturing process: Gans Digital Wood Grain Film has a dual printed and embossed texture finish for an ultra-realistic appearance that you have to see (and feel!) to believe. Our high quality Wood Grain Film can be a substitute for, or compliment to, more expensive natural and synthetic finishes. The self-adhesive Wood Grain Film comes with adhesive backing and can be applied to virtually any flat or simple curved surface including walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, elevators, automobile, marine and avaiation interiors, just to name a few. You can also cut our Wood Grain Film in custom shapes and letters for a more unique end product. And, best of all, the Wood Grain Films are PRINTABLE! White ink is recommended for the darker finishes but the films are compatible with Latex and Solvent as well as UV inks.
Holographic Window Perf
Gans’ Dual-Liner 60/40 Holographic Perforated Window Vinyl stands out above the rest! Its universally-preferred 60/40 print-surface-to-holes ratio is ideal for storefronts, office buildings, high end hotels and restaurants, as well as vehicles. Its prismatic surface is certain to be eye-catching both in the printed space and the negative space as well. Color shifting imagery catches a viewer’s eye and this product is best utilized where sunlight can work to enhance the prismatic and holographic effects of the surface!
Gans iDot is a 4mil printable film (available as Glossy White or Matte Clear) that utilizes Micro-Bead adhesive technology creating a truly reusable, repositionable, and removable bubble-free product. This cost effective and hassle-free material will prove to be an impressive addition to your line of adhesive materials.
Gans Digital is proud to be an exclusive partner and distributer for DuraVibe Latex Fabrics. DuraVibe specialty fabrics are unique in the digital textile marketplace. Their color vibrancy, fabric hand and durability are unprecedented. DuraVibe Fabrics are suitable across a broad range of markets and applications including signage, home furnishings, and apparel.
New Wide Format Equipment
115 Printer and 115 Print & Cut
Gans Digital is proud to now offer the new HP Latex 115 Printer, offering the most economical entry point into sign and display printing services using high-quality, water-based HP Latex technology. The HP Latex 115 model is also available in the Print and Cut series, providing an end-to-end HP solution for printing and cutting.
UCJV Series UV-LED
Mimaki introduced the UCJV Series UV-LED cut-and-print devices, the only 64-inch UV printers offering in-line cutting capability and models featuring white ink to enable four-layer printing. The UCJV Series is available in two models: the four-color UCJV150-160, and the UCJV300-160 that can accommodate up to seven ink colors. Each can produce a wide variety of print-and-cut applications offered by many signage, commercial and packaging print service providers. UV-LED curing technology enables print service providers to utilize an expanded range of media including many thin film substrates that may be too sensitive for latex or solvent high heat fixation systems.
