Print Fast buys 2-color Printmaster & POLAR

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

KENNESAW, Ga. – Print Fast, a quick print shop located in Ashland, Ore., had been running a one-color Heidelberg press it bought in 1997. After a decade of growth — and millions of impressions — it was time to add more capacity, leading the shop to purchase a brand new 2-color Printmaster QM 46 press from Heidelberg.

“We’ve experienced a very good year and we knew we needed to upgrade,” Manager Steve Tibbetts said. “We began investigating new presses, decided on the QM 46 and took delivery in April.”

The shop runs a lot of stationery on the new press, and about 15 percent of its work is four-color process. After installing the press, Print Fast also upgraded its bindery with a new POLAR 66 cutter from Heidelberg.  

“The new cutter is working out well,” Tibbetts said. “Our operators like it a lot.” The shop is using Heidelberg Saphira Perfect Dot blankets on its press, and also relies on Heidelberg Systemservice, which has been a “very good experience.”

Print Fast was founded in 1983 and has nine employees. It offers self-serve copying, color copying and one-color to four-color offset printing.
