Kodak Digital Printing Solution Jointly Purchased by Commercial Printer and Photo Lab
ROCHESTER, NY—Oct. 2—Equipped with a new Kodak Nexpress 2100 plus digital production color press and Kodak Nexglosser glossing unit, Woolverton Printing and American Color Imaging (ACI) can now produce high impact color printing and glossing for photographers. The joint purchase three months ago between the commercial printer and professional photo lab has opened several new doors for the two Cedar Falls, IA, companies.
“We did our homework ahead of time and found that the quality of output from the Nexpress 2100 plus press was superior to anything we saw,” said Len Searfoss, Business Development Manager at Woolverton Printing Company. “The quality of the Kodak Nexpress 2100 plus press has really caught the attention of the professional photographer customers of ACI, ultimately allowing both our companies to grow our business and reach new customers in the photo services market. ACI provides us with the work, and we produce consistent high quality results on cutting edge technology that pleases virtually every palette—it is as simple as that.”
The Kodak Nexpress 2100 plus digital production color press meets a variety of needs from entry level to very high volume environments. Customers are able to upgrade presses as they grow their businesses with options to select desired paper capacity, increase processing capability, and a fifth imaging unit for delivery of spot color, watermarking and protective coating with the GATF InterTech Award winning Kodak Nexpress fifth imaging unit solutions. The fifth imaging unit solutions also enable high impact glossing in conjunction with the Kodak Nexglosser glossing unit.
The Nexglosser glossing unit adds more cost effective, high impact gloss coverage to photobooks, calendars, postcards, point of purchase displays and even offset printed materials. By printing on offset waxless ink and then applying a coat of Kodak Nexpress clear dry ink to the sheets, the Nexglosser glossing unit serves as an efficient, offline glossing system that adds even more value to printed documents.
