Big Bark Graphics Installs New Morgana CardXtra Plus



Scott Barker, owner of Big Bark Graphics in Bolton, Ontario, Canada reached out to print finishing experts Sydney Stone, Canadian distributors for Morgana Systems (Booth 3561) postpress products, with a need to produce various types of cards at a high turnaround rate. Immediately Morgana’s CardXtra Plus was suggested as the ideal solution. The product is fully equipped with programmable functions that memorize key templates and is capable of producing high-capacity output, processing some 140 cards per minute.

Barker listed his reasons for purchasing with Sydney Stone: “Quality, financing availability made easy, and the Morgana CardXtra Plus covered a big need for quick business cards, postcards, and greeting cards.” Having various applications that require lots of creasing and cutting, the CardXtra Plus allowed him to switch from job to job quickly and efficiently. Sydney Stone sales representative Leslie Williamson states: “Scott explained to me the importance of allowing his current staff structure to stay the same; however, allow them an easier avenue for cutting business cards and other promotional items at the touch of a button. The Morgana CardXtra Plus was the perfect solution for Big Bark Graphics.”

CardXtra Plus is the ideal small-footprint trimming and creasing unit for the busy print shop. While fast and accurate business card production has been the mainstay of the CardXtra product for some seven years, this new and enhanced solution extends the products capabilities to a wider range of jobs, including postcards, greetings cards, calendars, double and multi-fold business cards, bookmarks, and even playing cards. The CardXtra Plus is capable of slitting, cutting and creasing, and can be pre-programmed with up to 20 jobs.

Sydney Stone was established in 1951 and, since that time, has grown to become one of the premier Canadian distributors of print finishing equipment and supplies throughout the world. The company imports and represents brands such as Morgana, EBA, Duplo, and Challenge, to name but a few.
