What’s Going On With Imagesetting Film?

Have you noticed the lack of imagesetting film is in the news lately? Have you been asking yourself these questions?

  • Can I still buy imagesetting film?
  • Is imagesetting film being discontinued?
  • Who has imagesetting film?
  • Where can I buy it?

Maybe your supplier has told you they will no longer carry  film, or maybe you’ve heard the rumor that imagesetting film will be completely discontinued.

Don’t worry! You can breathe a sigh of relief because: imagesetting film is still around and will continue to be available for many years to come.

Why has film been in the news and who is discontinuing it?

The reason imagesetting film has been in the spotlight lately is due to a recent announcement by  FUJI FILMS stating they will no longer manufacture imagesetting film beginning November, 2016. The announcement caused quite a stir because suppliers of Fuji Film no longer have a product for their clients. That means every printer using Fuji film has to look for a new supplier or upgrade to CTP. However, DEI Systems has negotiated a special deal with AGFA Film and will continue to sell imagesetting film well into the future.

Can I still buy film and who has it?

YES. You can still buy imagesetting film! DEI Systems, Inc. has been selling both AGFA film and Fuji Film under our private label for several years.  We have an established relationship with Agfa to sell their film. You can see why people continue to choose and reorder film from DEI Systems over and over again here.

In fact, last year, DEI Systems, sold thousands of rolls of film, both Fuji and Agfa, and our film business continues to grow year after year. In 2015, DEI Systems sold several hundred more rolls of film than in 2014. We are currently on pace in 2016 to sell the most film in a year yet. And, we’ve added several new accounts in the past month alone! The reason: our film is fantastic quality, manufactured by AGFA and converted to any size and specification you need, yet is always at the best price.

If you are looking for a new supplier for your film, or would like to check out our affordable prices or simply have questions about film, DEI Systems, Inc. is a company you can trust for your film needs.

So, if you’re worried you won’t be able to get film anymore, and are worried that you may be forced to upgrade your equipment and process to CTP, worry no more, and let DEI Systems, Inc. take care of your film needs today!
