Kodak Exceeds Newspaper Printer’s Expectations with Complete CTP Solution
“We’re going to end up with huge prepress labor savings, which will help us keep our costs very competitive,” Atkinson said. “Our image quality is among the best in the area now, and with more space on the press opening up, I can go out and actively seek new business. We’re hoping to bring three or four new customers on right away.”
In his decision-making process, Atkinson sought insights from fellow PAGE members, as well as other customers for whom Kodak provided contact information. The positive feedback Atkinson received from his peers about working with Kodak proved true.
“It was the smoothest and best transition into new equipment that I’ve been a part of in the 40 years I’ve been in the newspaper industry,” Atkinson said. “Every single member of the Kodak team delivered a level of service that far exceeded our expectations and made us feel like we were their most important customer. After deciding to purchase in late November, we needed to have everything installed by the end of the year. Everyone—from sales to service and support—helped us reach our goal, installing hardware and software during the year-end holiday break.”
The Kodak Trendsetter News Platesetter comes in three speeds, ranging from 80 to more than 150 plates per hour to suit newspaper printing facilities of all sizes.
