(L to R) Tom O'Brien and Lindsay Gray of Acculink receive the Pioneers of Print Award from Kogi Bar and Dror Danai of Scodix.
On Monday at GRAPH EXPO Scodix CEO Dror Danai presented the company’s Pioneers of Print award to business partners Tom O’Brien and Lindsay Gray for purchasing the first Scodix1200 Digital Press in the U.S. O’Brien and Gray are co-owners of Acculink, a full-service small commercial printing company in Greenville, NC, which has been ranked in Quick Printing’s Annual Top 100 list for a number of years.
The Scodix1200 (Booth 4422) is a digital enhancement press that produces the breakthrough Scodix SENSE printing experience that makes a lasting impression on the user for effective brand differentiation. The digital enhancement brings a new, high-quality look and tangible dimension to printed graphic communications. Using 99 Gloss Units, the press creates the highest gloss available for printed materials, up to 70 microns in polymer height–10 times higher than selective varnish. Gloss density can be set to variable density capabilities, ranging from 1% to 100%, allowing for easy single or dual-sided printing.
“As soon as I saw what this press could do, I knew it was something we had to have,” says O’Brien, pointing out the tactile, high-gloss effects that the press produces. “There just isn’t any other piece of equipment that can do what it does.” Not only will Acculink offer the special effect printing to its own customers, but O’Brien and Lindsay also plan to outsource the unique service to other printing companies.
