Edmonton Commercial Printer DeJong Printing Builds Business with KODAK NEXPRESS SX2700 Press
EDMONTON, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- When Henk DeJongs father announced that he would soon retire from leadership of DeJong Printing, Ltd., in Edmonton, Alberta, DeJong knew that the time had come to make some significant choices for the family business.
We were faced with the decision of whether we would continue in the printing business, dwindle down, or sell, DeJong explained. After decades of leading the local market in offset printing, DeJong Printing had not yet made a serious move to digital. We had a small digital printer for a number of years just a glorified laser printer, he said. We tossed ideas back and forth, and eventually we decided that in addition to our traditional services, we needed to be able to produce the best digital printing in town.
DeJong and his 15-member staff did their homework, and all of their research led them to one conclusion: the KODAK NEXPRESS SX2700 Digital Production Color Press , with the award winning KODAK NEXPRESS Fifth Imaging Unit Solutions, would provide them with the advantage they needed to differentiate DeJong Printing from its competition and realize their digital goals.
The KODAK NEXPRESS SX Platform can help printers drive more jobs per shift and more profit per page by consistently and reliably producing market-leading image quality from job-to-job and day-to-day. Its long-sheet option up to 26 inches allows printers to print six-page brochures or three-up letters, and the optional expanded feeder and in-line finishing modules help printers complete jobs in fewer steps, maximizing productivity while minimizing waste. In an independent study by SpencerLab, the KODAK NEXPRESS SX Digital Production Color Press achieved an overall highest rating in print quality, demonstrating the best all-around performance across the majority of attributes.
The NEXPRESS Fifth Imaging Unit makes it possible for DeJong to provide unique in-line dimensional coating, gloss and spot color, in-line watermarking, or coating in a single pass a range of applications and options that no other printing company in Edmonton can currently match.
Our customer base is heavily ad agency-oriented, and they are very excited about all the options the NEXPRESS Fifth Imaging Unit Solutions give them, said DeJong. Theyre particularly interested in the dimensional clear option, which prints a raised 3D image in clear ink instead of just a flat spot varnish and it does it right in the first pass. We can also offer RGB color for the most accurate spot color matching, in addition to the standard CMYK. Were considering the red fluorescing ink feature for some security and transit clients.
As the world's foremost imaging innovator, Kodak helps consumers, businesses, and creative professionals unleash the power of pictures and printing to enrich their lives.
