FranklinPrinting Adds KODAK NEXPRESS S2500

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Franklin Printing of Farmington, Maine was established more than 30 years ago to provide high quality printing services with hands on management and a focus on customer relationships. Founder Joseph Nemi believed that every client and every job deserve the same level of attention and that all employees should be trained for a mastery of the production process.

Recognizing the increasing demand for digital printing services from its loyal customer base, Franklin Printing has added a KODAK NEXPRESS S2500 Digital Production Color Press to offer short runs, personalization, and on demand services. The company has always provided a full range of printed products such as annual reports, magazines and newsletters, sales materials, brochures, catalogs, manuals, tags, greeting cards, fine art prints, POP displays, maps, calendars, folders, mailers, statements, and more.

"Adding digital print services was the next logical step for us," explained David Nemi, Marketing and Sales Manager, Franklin Printing. "The market is changing, and there is a growing demand for high quality short run printing. Kodak offered the best solution for our needs and their fifth imaging unit gives us a tangible competitive advantage. Together with our PRINERGY Workflow System and KODAK Portal Products, digital printing will greatly enhance our overall service portfolio."

Now employing approximately 50 professionals and posting annual revenues of $7 million, Franklin Printing is a general commercial printer serving customers throughout the New England area. In addition to its new NEXPRESS S2500 Digital Production Color Press and a KODAK PRINERGY Workflow System, the company uses a broad range of digital prepress equipment, three KOMORI Offset Presses, and a variety of finishing devices in its 25,000 square foot facility. The PRINERGY Workflow System has been instrumental in enabling Franklin Printing to integrate its digital and offset services.

The KODAK NEXPRESS S2500 Digital Production Color Press is a modular solution that provides leading image quality from job to job and day to day. It supports more than 500 substrates and offers high capacity paper input and output for uninterrupted printing, as well as inline finishing modules to complete jobs in fewer steps. The KODAK NEXPRESS Fifth Imaging Unit Solution delivers spot color, watermarking, MICR secure printing, protective coating, and the KODAK NEXPRESS Intelligent Dimensional Coating and KODAK NEXPRESS Dimensional Clear Dry Ink, which combine to create raised printing that enables tactile effects so that images can have a dimensional feel that mimics the surface of the items in the image. The NEXPRESS Fifth Imaging Unit Solution also relies on press profiling and standard inks to match up to 82 percent of the PANTONE spot color gamut with no custom mixing required.

KODAK Products are backed by KODAK Service and Support. KODAK Service and Support is made up of more than 3,000 professionals reaching more than 120 countries.
