OKI Data Americas Adds Grant Graphics to ColorPainter Reseller Program

New-York based distributor to sell, support and service ColorPainter family of eco-solvent wide format printers throughout Northeast 

IRVING, Texas, May 22, 2018—OKI Data Americas, a world-class printing technology leader, today announced the addition of Grant Graphics, a leading supplier of large-format printers, supplies and support to its ColorPainter Authorized Reseller Program.

“Grant Graphics prides itself on providing wide format print entrepreneurs with the tools, resources and savvy to excel in the wide format print industry,” said Skip Grant, Owner and Creative Business Developer at Grant Graphics. “Proper business education is a fundamental aspect of our customer relationship strategy, but it’s not enough without providing our customers with the world-class equipment they need. We enthusiastically recommend the ColorPainter series to our customers with confidence.”

Located in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and serving customers in various industries across the Northeastern United States, Grant Graphics is a full-service print and cut solutions provider with a first-hand understanding of how the products it sells fit into the print operations of its customers. Grant Graphics has established formidable real-time service and support teams through a variety of communication channels (phone, email, video, and on-site)—staffed by veteran technicians backed by more than 35 years of industry experience.

“When we recruit new dealers into the ColorPainter Authorized Reseller Program, our most important requirement is that the dealer shares our dedication to educating each ColorPainter user and arming them with the business savvy to succeed in the wide format graphics business,” said Lou Stricklin, Director of Marketing at OKI Data Americas. “Grant Graphics is a prime example of the high-caliber resellers we recruit for our ColorPainter dealer channel.”

As part of its commitment to customer education and community development, Grant Graphics has organized a series of Print & Cut Conferences in late May in Pennsylvania and New York. At each location, Grant’s seasoned crew of print and cut experts will conduct two classes, a “100 Ways to Make Money With Wide Format Printing” morning session, followed by “Print & Cut Done Easy!,” a live, hands-on learning experience focused on streamlining print production workflows and creating more efficient sales processes.
