Starting Fresh With Relocation
RICHMOND, VA—When David McGinnis, founder of Digital Ink, decided to move his business into an expanded building more than five times larger than its current location, he knew that big changes lay ahead for his company. Instead of going through the hassle of moving equipment across town and setting up in a new location, McGinnis decided to sell everything and start fresh with a suite of new equipment—prepress, postpress and everything in between—all from Heidelberg.
The bindery now features a Polar 115 X cutter, Stahlfolder B 30 folder and Stitchmaster ST 90 saddlestitcher. In prepress are a Prinect Printready prepress system and Suprasetter A74 and Suprasetter MCL 74 platesetters. The presroom is equipped with a six-color Speedmaster CD 74 with aqueous coater and the Prinect CP2000 Center.
“We had Heidelberg equipment already, but this upgrade allows us to start fresh with added capacity for our clients’ work,” says McGinnis.
Conceptual Product Development (CPD) of West Caldwell, NJ, has added hardcover binding to its production capabilities with the purchase of a new short-run Powis Parker Fastback hardcover binding system. A Foilfast printer produces deluxe foil-embossed artwork on the cover and spine of the book in an assortment of matching colors to complement the title sheet.
New Bedford, MA-based Name Plates for Industries installed a new Champion semi-slitting unit from Rollem International for its label manufacturing operation.
A new Wohlenberg City 6000 perfect binder equipped with an integrated VSS face trimming device, from Colter & Peterson, has been purchased by Los Angeles-based Bridge Publications, which is the Church of Scientology’s North American publishing company.
