VALHALLA, N.Y., December 18, 2007 – Fujifilm U.S.A., Inc., today announced that poster printing and signage services are now available at more than 580 Sam’s Club locations throughout the United States. The solution combines an EPSON/FUJIFILM Stylus Pro 7800 wide format inkjet printer, provided by Fujifilm Hunt Chemicals for Fujifilm Frontier Systems, with the Frontier Photo Controller (PIC) Version 3, and Fujifilm’s Image IntelligenceTM for enhanced color management.
