ACROSS the Nation

September 2008
Technology Drives Business Growth

FALL CREEK, WI—Mail Source, a provider of integrated direct mail solutions, has added a Domino dual-head, drop-on-demand (DoD) imaging system to complement its existing capacity. This additional line can duplex personalize plastic cards at extremely high speeds using UV cured ink.

The 20 year-old western Wisconsin company continues to invest millions of dollars in technology to attract high-volume business—without a sales staff (although it employs 100).

For Mini Folds, the Smaller the Better

NEW BRITAIN, CT—Connecticut Valley Bindery recently purchased a two-station Vijuk G&K V-14 SAF miniature folder with HHS hot glue system from Vijuk Equipment.

“We are excited to announce the addition of miniature folding to our vast finishing capabilities,” says Kevin Hubert, sales manager, shown here with the new folder. “The demand for miniature size brochures has grown over the years.”

To further enhance its miniature folding capabilities, the bindery added the HHS system with two application heads, allowing it to produce fugitive and permanent glue spine-glued brochures, as well as spot closure of direct mail or signatures.
