About Us

Welcome to SIGNTRADE GmbH, a leading distributor of digital printers and inks for over a decade. Founded in 2004 in Canton Zug, Switzerland, we have been providing top-quality products to over 60 authorized dealers worldwide. Our expertise is based on more than ten years of experience, during which we have tested and validated new printers and inks in Switzerland for at least six months to ensure the highest production requirements are met.

As a master distributor of NUTec Digital Ink, we offer inks under the SIGNTRADE brand. In 2004, we introduced digital printers under the name SIGNRACER, which have become a popular choice for customers worldwide. We are committed to providing environmentally friendlier products and have introduced several new inks to the market to support this philosophy.

One of our notable achievements was presenting the first Non-Haps ink in the digital printing market at FESPA 2008 in Geneva. This new, environmentally friendly ink called Oxygenium was featured on our SIGNRACER 161+, which demonstrated our commitment to environmentally friendly products. In 2009, we started distributing Bio Dome, a UV curable 1-component resin for doming, which is the only one-component material in the market that fulfills future environmental laws like REACH.

We continuously strive to innovate and improve our products. At FESPA 2010 in Munich, we introduced a new textile system solution consisting of the new water-based SIGNRACER series, a new water-based textile ink, and a new transfer paper. In 2011, we presented the new inks from NUTec in South Africa at FESPA 2011 in Hamburg. Our exhibition highlight was the innovative NUtec Emerald E12 ink, a TRUeco product, which contains non-hazardous air polluting substances and can be used in office environments.

We presented several new products from NUtec, including the new Sapphire S20 mild solvent ink for Konica Minolta print heads at FESPA 2012 in Barcelona. Our major highlight was the presentation of the Amethyst UV-ink, which marked the start of the UV business for Signtrade.

At FESPA 2013 in London, we introduced the new Emerald E10 inks, which are eco-solvent inks without any smell. The major highlight was again the UV inks with the new Amethyst A50-UV-MPX inks, which have the best adhesion in the market. At FESPA 2014 in Munich, we presented the optimized Signracer 1610 LED with a new high-performance LED system and the further improved Amethyst A50-UV-MPX-TR inks.

We have recently introduced the D10-GF-MS21 eco-solvent inks for Mimaki, Roland, and Mutoh printers. In 2020, NUTec developed the A20-RTR inks for Mimaki roll-to-roll and flatbed printers, and in 2022, we are excited to introduce the new UV LED hybrid ink, Ruby R10-HYB, for printers with EPSON print heads.

At SIGNTRADE, we remain committed to offering the best products to our customers and continuously improving our offerings. We take pride in our work and strive to provide the best service to our customers.
