TC Printing Supports Sales Growth and Market Expansion with MGI Meteor DP8700 Xl Digital PressOctober 23, 2012
One key market that saw an immediate impact from the Meteor DP8700 XL was book printing. Textbooks and product catalogs make up the majority of TC Printing’s business. It’s new digital capabilities have led to an increase in overall orders, including many projects created as a direct result of being able to now fulfill requests for short and ultra-short (less than 20 copies) runs.
The company also forged strong partnerships with other printers in the area, especially ones with 40˝ offset presses. The Meteor DP8700 XL’s 13x40˝ Super Format printing abilities allow TC Printing to produce short runs of jobs that require an extended format and are not cost-effective to produce via offset. As a result, they’ve become the go-to trade printer for these types of projects.
Harris remarked that, “We expected to see growth in our business after the addition of the Meteor DP8700 XL, but we’ve actually experienced twice as much sales volume as we projected.
“It’s been a great experience working with Print & Finishing Solutions,” continued Harris. “The quality of installation and training they provided was excellent, as is their ongoing support and product knowledge.”
