Screen Printed Graphics Now Available for Certificate of 3M™ MCS™ Warranty

3M announces updates to warranty and guarantee program

St. Paul, MINN – (October 19, 2011) – SGIA Booth #1437 – 3M announces that it has now added screen printing to its Certificate of 3M™ MCS™ Warranty program. Graphics manufacturers that use Screen Printing UV Ink Series 9800 or solvent-based Screen Printing Ink Series 1900 or 2900 from 3M can now register for a certificate, which gives them the ability to promote the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty to their brand owner customers. They can even have their customers download copies of the certificate directly from a 3M website. Users can visit to register and for further guidelines on how to promote their offering of the warranty. This system does not require the graphics manufacturer to register each graphic in order to obtain the warranty.

"The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty has been offered for more than 30 years and is still the gold standard in the industry," says Jennifer Greenquist, inks and warranties business manager for 3M Commercial Graphics. "The Certificate of 3M™ MCS™ Warranty gives our loyal customers an edge by reaffirming that 3M will stand behind qualifying graphics made and printed with 3M products and processes."

In addition, the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty for HP 3M LX600 Specialty Latex Inks now covers vehicle graphics with the appropriate 3M overlaminates for five years, and Panagraphics brand III Wide Width Flexible Substrate with a three-year warranty is now included as well.

3M's Performance Guarantee gives customers the confidence that 3M products will consistently meet the highest standards of quality, durability and longevity. 3M continues to grow its roster of OEM inkjet printer and ink combinations qualified to receive the 3M Performance Guarantee when used with a wide range of approved 3M media. New to the list are the following:

  • Durst Rho 500R printer with Rho Roll v3 UV inks
  • HP Scitex LX600/800/820/850 printers with LX610 latex inks
