The seminar series teaches business owners how the inkjet technology of the industry award-winning iJetColor Press, powered by Memjet, makes four-color envelope or label printing profitable in less than a year even with very modest print volumes.
"The iJetColor Press has made short-run four-color work a reality for our customers," commented Tim Murphy, president of Printware. "The iJetColor Press enhances a print shop’s existing operations by adding a high performance, low cost digital inkjet press to enable personalized short-run color printing. iJetColor Press owners have experienced incredible cost savings and added new revenue opportunities with the iJetColor Press."
The seminar features case studies from accounts to illustrate how even with a moderate demand for short-run four-color work, profitability is possible in under 12 months in most cases. Beyond profitability, the improvement in performance and productivity is also significant allowing customers to often receive a four-color, short-run envelope or packaging jobs the same day rather than in five to seven business days.

"We continue to see a tremendous level of interest in the iJetColor Press, as well as an understanding by shop owners of how the system will directly benefit their business. Owners have done their homework and are ready to invest," continued Murphy.
