Presstek Broadens Worldwide Presence with DI Presses
Hugh Schlenker, owner of Prime Printing in Alberta, Canada is also reaping the benefits of his new Presstek 34DI, which was installed in March. According to Schlenker, his print shop used to job out a significant amount of high-quality work. With the DI's high-quality printing, consistency and fast make-ready times, he says he can now keep these jobs in house. "The DI is going to keep us competitive for a very long time," Schlenker said. "It's quick, it's fast and the quality is there - that's the future of printing. We should have bought this a long time ago."
