FESPA UK are proud to announce we have 3 new board members, who will be helping support us in the Textile & Digital and Label & Signage sectors. Our new board members have a wealth of knowledge and experience and we are really looking forward to working with them.

Dean Sanger - Managing Director of Sabur Digital

Dean started in the Textile industry at 16 years old, working in a mill manufacturing fabrics using various machines including warping, flat bed knitting and circular knitting.

Since forming Sabur Digital in 1998, Dean has seen major changes in the sublimation print industry, with a shift from the traditional Screen Print to Digital being evident at the turn of the century.

Sabur have been there throughout this transitional period and are recognised by many as the market leaders in digital sublimation supplies.

Sell, Support and Service, are three key words which have supported the continued growth of Sabur Digital over the last decade, and with the introduction of both the Mimaki Industrial (UV) product range and the DGI FT range of Textile Printers up to 3.2mt wide to their product portfolio, Sabur will no doubt remain one of the best known and most trusted suppliers through the next 20 years.
