PrintMailers Selects Six-Color Komori Press for its Advanced Automation
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL—July 20, 2011—Komori America, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, announced that PrintMailers, a Texas-based marketing communications service provider, has recently installed a six-color Komori Lithrone SX29 (LSX629) to support its turnkey marketing communications production facility. The company offers its clients an impressive array of capabilities, including offset and digital printing, mailing and logistics services, creative design, list management, warehousing and inventory management and on-line order fulfillment.
With its advanced automated features, the new Komori press supports PrintMailers’ commitment to control the quality of every job from start to finish, quickly and efficiently.
“Komori’s reputation for print quality and performance was behind our decision to select this press and we haven’t been disappointed,” said Steve Johns, president of PrintMailers. “Because color consistency and control is huge in our business, we really liked the fact the LSX629 offered a closed-loop color control system that makes it possible to match colors to a proof much closer than we could before.
“This is very important when it comes to ensuring our customers’ standards are met on every piece we print. Additionally, it gets up to color 25 percent faster than our other equipment, which is also impressive. With the 29” sheet size we can run more up on a sheet, doubling our productivity and truly optimizing efficiency, which is so important.”
The Lithrone SX29 offers PrintMailers not only exceptional print quality, but also competence with a range of paper thicknesses and special options that enable in-line value added printing.
“PrintMailers has successfully made the transition to being a value-added marketing services provider with its ability to handle every single component for customers, from idea to delivery,” said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice-president of sales and marketing at Komori. “We are pleased the LSX629 is supporting the company’s successful turnkey operation by ensuring speed to market with a quality product.”
