Repro Graphix Adds Acuity Flatbed Printer, Xerox Color 800 Digital Press from FujifilmJuly 23, 2012
Shortly after investing in the Fujifilm Acuity Advance wide-format printer, the Halls began to look for a high-production digital color press to once again expand their service offering. “Over the course of the years, we had every kind of device out there,” says Brian, “but when we saw the quality of the Xerox 800, how close it came to offset, we knew we were on the right track.
“Our relationship with Fujifilm is what helped us make the final decision,” says Jill. “The 800 provided us with the best technology from the best vendor to help us best meet our customers’ growing demands.”
“We work for some very smart, very demanding print buyers,” Brian says. “Our customers wanted their printing to compete with offset, to have that ‘printed look,’ not the toner shine you usually see. They recognized the difference right away, and appreciated the capability to print on heavier substrates and add the spot clear effects.”
“Our customers are very happy with what they’ve seen come off the Xerox 800,” says Jill. “They know that it’s not offset but they’re very impressed with the quality; it holds up to offset as far as they’re concerned. And we know the support we get from Fujifilm will pay off in increased sales, higher quality and longer uptime. We’re pleased to be dealing with the same group of professionals on both machines; they know us, they know our business and our customer requirements and they help those machines meet everyone’s needs.”
Repro Graphix’ prints unusual job for Super Bowl
With the Super Bowl in town earlier this year, Repro Graphix’ had the opportunity to print one of its more unusual projects. As a supporter of several arts and community organizations in Indianapolis, Repro Graphix helped create a display that was part of an exhibit tied to the game, featuring an historical display of Indianapolis, printed on 4x8′ sheets of 3/4˝ plywood, cut to go together like pieces of a puzzle.
The creativity of our presentation led to a contract with the NFL for “printing, lots of printing,” as Brian Hall puts it. “We printed a large number of media guides outlining all activities, Game Day Quick Fact Books, maps, a lot of signage and banners.” Repro Graphix received the NFL Super Bowl XLVI ”Business Leadership Impact Award” for Leadership/Social Responsibility. This award is based on Repro Graphix commitment to community, the event and other businesses. According to one NFL source, “Repro Graphix saved our lives—more than once!”
“Referrals are everything to us,” Jill said. “We have a great team here with tremendous experience, not just on the equipment, but also working with our customers. Our customers have great confidence in our staff, most of them have been around awhile and the customers know them and enjoy working with them.”
