Commercial printing company Printed Easy chose the Scodix Ultra 6000 Press, powered by Smart High Definition (SHD) capabilities, to achieve the highest quality embellishment options at the lowest cost per sheet for decorating SRA3 to B1 sheet prints.
Based in Letchworth Garden City, UK, Printed Easy offers printing services for a broad selection of general commercial products, including bound documents and brochures, roll labels and a host of other products. When Jon Lancaster took over Printed Easy as Managing Director in 2005, he pushed the family-owned business to expand into online printing whilst driving a raft of production efficiencies through its in-house software development. Since making the decision, the company has experienced a staggering 50-fold plus increase in sales.
According to Lancaster, the company started to pay attention to the Scodix Ultra 6000 Press when the team saw the format and quality, ‘The B1 format and new polymers allow low cost-per-sheet, which competes with conventional UV on a flat finish, whilst SHD brings us breakthrough quality in terms of sharpness and detail.’
Printed Easy intends to use the Scodix Ultra 6000 by adding both raised and flat UV and foil to every general commercial product, both bound and unbound, in its range, with many complex options currently being designed. The integration of the Scodix Ultra 6000 Press into Printed Easy’s automated production is the logical step to continue its mantra of bringing offline print to the Web-2-Print market. The software automation and the automatic registration system that Scodix offers was a significant attraction for Printed Easy.
‘We’re excited that with the Scodix Ultra 6000, Printed Easy will fulfil even more of its customers’ expectations with a large range of embellishment options, along with dynamic pricing across all its products, run lengths and custom sizes. I feel everything is set to meet their high demands for production economics,’ said Franz Repp, President of EMEA for Scodix.
