Sydney signage and wide format printer Easy Signs has won the Top Innovator Award winner at this year’s Smart Company awards.

“Businesses like Easy Signs have shown how important it is to move quickly if you’re going to get ahead of industry trends that threaten the very core of your business,” said a spokesperson for Smart Company at its 2017 Smart50 Awards night.

“This year’s Top Innovator Award winner, Easy Signs, took the tough decision to restructure its sign installation business five years ago after seeing the traditional model for selling signage was no longer capturing clients.

“This choice resulted in a smaller team and a revenue drop, but the radical change also saw the company emerge as an online-first company that has grown to an $8 million operation.”

Easy Signs also reached #23 on the Smart Company rankings.

Print21 editor Andy McCourt visited Easy Signs at Ingleburn in Sydney in February 2017 and found a company that had fully embraced online commerce and had also resolved some colour consistency issues with the help of Colour Graphic Services.

The team at Easy Signs

Apart from its HP Latex 3100, Easy Signs became the first company in Australia to upgrade one of their 2 SwissQPrint Nyala 2 UV Flatbed printers to the 4×4 printhead configuration, giving them nearly double the previous print speed to cope with demand.

Easy Signs was established in 2006 at Miranda, and moved to new premises in November 2014. Staff count has risen to 36.
