Presstek to Showcase Industry Leading Digital Offset Printing and Chemistry-free Imaging Solutions at Graphics of the Americas
HUDSON, NH—January 30, 2007—Presstek, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRST), a leading manufacturer and marketer of digital offset printing business solutions for the graphic arts market, today announced that it will be featuring it’s award-winning portfolio of digital offset printing solutions from March 2nd to 4th at The Graphics of the Americas trade show in Miami, FL. Presstek’s easy to use products – DI presses, chemistry-free CTP systems and workflow solutions – are engineered to enable printers to grow their business by increasing productivity and quality while removing cost from the print production process.
“Today’s print service providers are looking for ways to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive marketplace,” said Presstek’s Todd Chambers, Chief Marketing Officer. “This first major trade show of the year is a particularly good time for print providers to see what’s new and plan their annual investments. Presstek’s chemistry-free digital solutions help printers add new services, produce higher quality printing and improve their overall productivity and profitability.”
One such printer is Gary Forbes who owns and operates the Sir Speedy franchise in Asheville, North Carolina, who saw an increasing requirement for four-color printing in the 2,500 to 10,000 range, which he could not effectively produce on either toner-based digital press or his two-color presses. “While we could have upgraded our two-color conventional printing, it seemed to me that the Presstek DI press was the future of four-color offset,” he says. As a result of acquiring his DI press, Forbes has been able to meet those emerging customer needs as well as to pursue a wide range of new business. He adds, “The word is spreading, and we are now getting requests from people who wouldn’t even consider us before.”
When visiting the Presstek booth, attendees will be able to enjoy hands-on demonstrations, talk with Presstek experts, and learn how their firms can differentiate themselves and grow their businesses by adopting the latest technologies in digital offset printing. There is also the opportunity to meet with representatives from Presstek’s distributors: Gutenberg (Brazil); Sun Digital (Mexico) and Perez Trading Company (Caribbean).
