Kodak and Graphic Innovators Ink Deal to Resell Prosper Imprinting Systems
DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY, May 9—Kodak and Graphic Innovators are partnering to provide newspaper and packaging customers with new opportunities to expand their offerings using hybrid inkjet printing. A new agreement expands an existing relationship and establishes Graphic Innovators as the first reseller of Kodak Prosper S-series imprinting systems to customers in the Americas region.
Graphic Innovators is a global industry leader in the sale of new, remanufactured, and used web offset presses and auxiliary equipment for publishing, packaging, and commercial printing. In addition to Graphic Innovators’ current services, the Illinois-based firm now will be a reseller of Kodak Prosper S-series systems for new and existing customers and have the capability to integrate the systems into customers’ environments. Graphic Innovators is also qualified to provide service and support for the systems.
The partnership makes Graphic Innovators the first Kodak Prosper S-series systems reseller in the United States, Canada and Latin America.
“The Prosper S-series systems are a great fit for offset printers looking to leverage their existing offset investment and new, digital capabilities,” said Paul Minasian, vice president/general manager, Graphic Innovators. “We expanded our relationship with Kodak because we believe in the company and its proven ability to deliver truly innovative technologies.”
Based on Kodak Stream Inkjet Technology, Kodak Prosper imprinting systems deliver hybrid solutions, enabling print service providers to produce offset-class output in terms of quality, productivity, and cost for their clients. Offering the highest quality in the hybrid digital printing product line with speeds matching those of a web offset press, Kodak Prosper S-series systems allow customers to capitalize on new imprinting business opportunities.
“Hybrid printing is one of the hottest and most talked about trends in the graphic communications industry today—it brings the best of two worlds together and helps organizations deliver more valuable pages to their clients,” said Jerry Miller, Kodak’s Americas regional general manager, Digital Printing Solutions. “Graphic Innovators has a good reputation, and the work they do to help customers make the most out of their investments is remarkable. The Prosper S-series systems are a logical, digital extension of its business.”
