Epson scoops all three BLI Wide Format Pick Awards in its signage category

Epson’s SureColor large format printers win Buyers Lab 2022 Awards from Keypoint Intelligence


Three of Epson’s latest SureColor large format printers have been awarded Buyers Lab (BLI) 2022 Wide Format Pick Awards. The awards, from Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading independent provider of testing services and analytical information acknowledge products that performed the best in their labs over the last 24 months.


The three awards go to:


Epson SureColor SC-S60600L

Outstanding High-Production CMYK Eco-Solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer


Epson SureColor SC-S80600L

Outstanding Gamut Expansion Eco-Solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer


Epson SureColor R5000 Series

Outstanding Enhanced CMYK Eco-Solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer


David Sweetnam, Director of Research and Lab Services EU/Asia at Keypoint Intelligence said: “Because of the pandemic, these awards cover tested products launched over the last two years, with several vendors submitting for the first time. There was stiff competition, but in the end, Epson won across three of our Wide Format Signage Pick categories. These three devices delivered impressive productivity and have noteworthy usability design coupled with the class-leading output quality that we have come to expect. Epson’s new Resin ink devices are targeted at the latex ink market, while the other two winners are equipped with Epson’s new Edge RIP and bulk-ink formulation matched up to the same standards of performance that helped their cartridge-based siblings claim BLI Awards in 2018.”


Duncan Ferguson, Vice-President for Commercial and Industrial Printers at Epson Europe said: “These accolades are testament to the efforts made by Epson to deliver outstanding printers which consistently outperform the competition. We are thrilled to have received this recognition.”
