Staten Island Printer Luke's Copy Shop Prints Commemorative Papal Books
RAMSEY, N.J.—September 29, 2015—Konica Minolta announced that the 190-page, wire-bound Papal books that were presented to Pope Francis during his New York visit were printed on the company’s equipment at its customer, Luke’s Copy Shop of New Dorp, Staten Island, New York.
Using Konica Minolta’s high-speed, full-color presses, the scores of books were generated on an extremely tight deadline. Titled "Francis, Our Pope: A Journey of Faith Through the Heart of New York," the book is described as a "spiritual bouquet," filled with photos, prayers and written intentions to do good deeds. The books were handed out as gifts from the Archdiocese of New York’s almost 70,000 students at the ceremony during the pope’s visit to Our Lady Queen of Angels School in East Harlem. In addition to the Pope, the books were given to Archdiocese members and sponsors.
Luke Callas, owner of Luke’s Copy Shop, was tasked with the rush order and said the job took 24 hours to complete.
“This is the biggest job I have done for the most important man in the world and I am honored that the Archdiocese of New York chose us,” Callas said. “We are honored to be part of such a historical and significant event. This is not something we have the privilege of doing every day.”
