SPECTRUM (article first published : 2003-05-30)

“Since the demise of PW Story in August last year, there has been a great need for an alternative source of supply. Since then, the market has been pretty monopolised by Pen & Art,” says Alain Latham of Spectrum Distributors, a new fine art factory shop.

The Latham’s business started mainly as a silkscreen and graphic art supplier six years ago, in Gale Street. They then moved into laser and inkjet cartridge refilling/remanufacturing and launched their own brand of compatible laser and inkjet inks and inkjet refill kits called MegaJet. Spectrum is also a fully fledged office supply outlet.

“Since moving to 415 Umgeni Road in November,” Alain adds, “we discovered we had the right address, parking, profile and space to launch the Fine Art Factory Shop concept. The idea is fairly simple. We aim to move volume by stocking the best brands and selling them at a fair mark-up (about 30% lower than recommended prices). We will even do better with bulk orders for schools, technikons etc.”

Spectrum is situated between Game City and Argyle Road and welcomes suggests for any items not already in stock.
