Wild Apple Graphics Makes Printing Fine Art with MGI Meteor Digital PressNovember 29, 2011
“One of our most popular print sizes is 12x36” with a full bleed, and the Meteor was the only press that could accommodate that,” said Chadwick. “As a fine-art printer, quality and color consistency has to be absolutely top-notch, not only within the run but also for reorders down the road. The Meteor lives up to our high standards, without question. We also think the no click charge philosophy MGI has is great.”
Since installing the Meteor, Wild Apple has met its goal of keeping little to no inventory on-hand of certain print sizes, instead producing jobs on-demand as needed. It can also now accommodate rush orders and a same-day turnaround.
“The ability to produce true short runs now allows us to be competitive in markets we couldn’t work in before,” added Chadwick. “We can now work with our customers in new ways to help them with test programs for their customers, which require ultra-short runs produced in the highest quality and will allow us to keep growing our revenue stream. This also allows us to better serve our customers’ needs, which leads to a stronger relationship overall.”
