King Printing Adding Kodak Prosper 1000 Press for Book Production
The company will be using the Prosper 1000 Press, and later the PROSPER 5000XL Press, to produce short-run, black-and-white and color books with unprecedented image quality and productivity. Plans also call for variable data and ultra short runs for the trade, educational, and professional book segments.
“We have seen an explosion in the demand for short-run book publishing, and the PROSPER Press Platform is uniquely suited to meet those demands,” noted Kevin Joyce, Worldwide Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Digital Printing Solutions, Kodak. “With offset class quality, productivity, and cost, the Prosper Press Platform gives book publishers and printers an exciting new digital business model that can help increase efficiency and profitability.”
King Printing, based in Lowell, Mass., also places a strong focus on its finishing capabilities, offering all necessary binding services in-house. The plant employs casing inlines, case makers, and perfect binders from Kolbus; and trimmers and saddle stitchers from Muller Martini. All binding, including mechanical binding, is accomplished under one roof.
