Mercury Print Productions Adds Press
ROCHESTER, NY—With a Kodak Prosper 5000XL press installed in July 2011 and a Kodak Prosper 1000 press installed in December 2012, Mercury Print Productions is preparing for a third press to be installed at the beginning of 2014. A specialist in digital book printing for the education market, Mercury Print will use the new Kodak Prosper 5000XLi press to broaden its offerings of short-run, on-demand book production for existing clients while also adding other services to attract new business.
“We have believed strongly in Kodak’s Stream inkjet technology from the very beginning,” said Christian Schamberger, president of Mercury Print. “For us, the combination of cost, quality and technology, along with the future direction of the company, have all played a role in our selection of Kodak for all three of these inkjet presses. We have been extremely pleased with the performance, reliability, quality and support that we have experienced with Kodak. This additional press enables us to increase our capacity and move into areas such as full-color, personalized direct mail.”
The Prosper 5000XLi press was introduced earlier this year and features the Intelligent Print System (IPS), which combines inline video monitoring and advanced software controls to process thousands of press inputs that measure imaging performance, detecting variations and making adjustments as needed on the fly. Optimized output color quality is achieved regardless of varying substrates, image content, web speed, and environmental conditions.
