ShutterMaster Pro currently has two branches. Our large format printing service shares space with its first branch in Quezon City. The second branch is along Chino Roces Avenue in Makati City.
The Makati branch of ShutterMaster Pro is due to transfer to its new location by the end of September 2017. The new location for the Makati branch will be at Unit 1B Kamagong Building, 9641 Kamagong Street, San Antonio Village, Makati City.
The good news is that space has
been allotted for a large format printing workstation once the new branch opens. This will bring us closer to our print clients located in the Southern area of Metro Manila.
The expansion also means that I will be shuttling back and forth Quezon City and Makati. I’ve been joking that I will be like a doctor who maintains clinic hours at more than one hospital.
We already have all of the major components to get the printing service up and running at the new Makati branch. We’ll be installing our Epson SC-P9000 large format printer in Makati. I’ll be using my Dell Precision 5520 mobile workstation for the meantime for the post processing chores. I already put it an order for a Wacom and Datacolor Spyder5 Elite.
The only other things that need to be purchased are the little things like a cutting matte, box cutter, long ruler and a few other things.
I did get a head start on purchasing one of the little things. I bought myself a pair of rose gold fabric scissors to cut canvas. We can’t use the built-in cutting blade of the large format printer when we print on canvas since it would prematurely dull the blade. We rely on a good pair of scissors to cut canvas at the end of each print job.
I’ll get around to buying the other little stuff by next week in time for our opening at the end of the month.
I’m looking forward to printing in Makati soon.
