“Driving Innovation & Building For A Cause”

Irving, Texas, October 30, 2018 – OKI Data Americas, a world-class printing technology innovator and undisputed leader in delivering vibrant, durable vehicle wraps for the automotive restyling industry, returns to SEMA 2018 in Booth #16524 to demonstrate the speed and best-in-class performance of the ColorPainter™ wide format printer series October 30 – November 2, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.


Backed by a decade-long legacy of providing show-stopping graphics and one-of-a-kind wraps, the ColorPainter™ printer line, including our flagship product, the award-winning M-64s, delivers ultra-fast production speeds and quality output that is virtually impossible to duplicate at this price point.   The ColorPainter product portfolio is engineered with industrial-grade hardware, built for resiliency and longevity, and produces long-lasting graphics with exceptional color saturation.


As the principal financial contributor for the SEMA Cares philanthropic effort, OKI, in collaboration with Petty’s Garage and Wastegate Technologies, will unveil their exclusive car design at the show. The vehicle will be auctioned off on January 12, 2019 at Mecum Auctions in Kissimmee, Florida with proceeds donated to Victory Junction, a SEMA Cares benefactor dedicated to enriching the lives of children with serious medical conditions.  “We’ve previously worked with SEMA on the SEMA Cares build program and are honored to have been selected again for this worthy cause,” said Richard Petty, Owner of Petty’s Garage. “Petty’s Garage has built an awe-inspiring 2018 Chevrolet Camaro that will amaze and impress SEMA attendees as well as the general public.”


“OKI is proud to demonstrate the horsepower of the ColorPainter printer series at SEMA, and to show how it maintains color density and consistency, while churning out quality prints at high-caliber speeds,” said Lou Stricklin, Director of Corporate Marketing at OKI. “And as an added bonus, we’re extremely gratified to participate in the SEMA Cares car build which will help fund the life-changing experiences that Victory Junction creates.”
