Pentzer Printing in Columbus has installed a new Xerox Color 800 printing press. Pentzer is the only commercial printer in southern Indiana with a Xerox Color 800.
“We offer customers sharp printing and true colors for their short runs of fewer than 2,000 copies at an economical price,” says John Settle, Pentzer Printing’s chief operating officer. “A small and medium-sized company’s print work can now match the quality of longer-run offset material from their largest competitors.”
The Xerox Color 800 is a digital press, delivering digital images directly to the paper or other media without printing plates used by offset printers. Digital’s lower cost and quicker turnaround time has made it a reliable source of small printing runs for many years. Recent improvements in digital technology allow the Xerox Color 800 to deliver the best clear, bright digital images ever, equalling the quality associated with offset printing while maintaining cost controls for short runs of only a few hundred copies.
The Xerox Color 800‘s clear dry ink station adds impact to a customer’s documents. Settle says, “The clear ink works like a varnish or coating to make an image stand out on the page. It can also be used by itself in the background of the piece.”
Pentzer’s customers already notice a clear difference for even their short runs.
"Today's higher education marketplace is extremely competitive," says Susan Sullivan, director of communications and marketing at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus. "We appreciate business partners like Pentzer Printing who commit to investing in emerging technology and new equipment - especially when it helps us meet tight deadlines, achieve a higher-quality outcome, or reduce costs. We are very pleased with the look and price of our direct mail postcards,” says Sullivan.
