The Key to Being Competitive
As Shawn Nag of Print Papa and many other Presstek customers have found, building a production platform based on Presstek’s chemistry-free digital offset technologies and best-in-class workflow products has revolutionized their ability to be competitive without hurting margins.
Presstek solutions are among the most productive in the marketplace, ensuring that costs remain in check and waste levels are low. Presstek solutions also enable companies to increase the quality of their output without increasing cost. This, combined with the wide range of new applications that can be produced using Presstek products, means that Presstek customers are not only more competitive, but they offer increased value to their customers, ensuring longer, more in-depth customer relationships. The price war is not the way to win the day.
Lantz Stationery Saves Time and Money Without Compromising Quality
Lantz Stationery, Ireland’s premier manufacturer of wedding stationery and the largest printer of charity Christmas cards, added a chemistry-free Presstek Dimension Excel platesetter using Anthem Pro Plates when its repro house announced it would be getting out of the film business. “We introduce 200 to 300 new designs a year and 50 new Christmas cards,” said Paul Hughes, Director of Lantz Stationery. “To put an Anthem plate on press and get it running to full production only takes two to three minutes, a great time and cost savings, helping us stay competitive. Now we can put an out-of-stock card back in stock within days, which would have been impossible before. My only regret is that we didn’t invest in a Dimension ages ago.

Miller reports that a Georgia firm, for whom Catawba had been mailing for 20 years, now also sends 90 percent of its print work to Catawba based on the quality, turnaround and pricing they can deliver with the Presstek 52DI press.
