Presstek 34DI Transforms BCT Nevada's Business

Friday, January 23, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Hudson, NH – Presstek, Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of digital offset printing solutions, today reported that BCT Nevada has upgraded its print manufacturing capabilities to include high quality short run four-color printing with the installation of a Presstek 34DI press.  While BCT Nevada had previously added a conventional four-color press to supplement its thermography manufacturing process, the firm was unable to turn work around quickly enough to keep up with growing four-color demand.
“With the growing demand for color business cards and shrinking lead times,” said Craig Wasserman, owner, “we needed to replace our conventional four-color press.  Adding the Presstek 34DI, especially with its ability to print on 14-point stocks, has made us the fastest and highest quality business card printer in Nevada. It is like moving from a Hyundai to a Mercedes—there is no comparison.”
BCT Nevada also looked to new applications enabled by the DI press to offset a decline in its thermography business.  Since installing the press, Wasserman reports that more brokers and printers are coming to him because of the fast turnaround, competitive price and exceptional quality he can deliver with the 34DI press. “The press has put us in a whole different marketplace,” he says. “In addition to business cards, we are printing brochures, flyers and postcards.  We can efficiently gang postcards and business cards, which we couldn’t do before. Thanks to the 34DI, we are now a real print shop!”
“BCT Nevada joins a growing number of BCT stores that are leveraging DI press technology to reinvent their businesses,” said Mark Sullivan, Presstek Product Manager, Digital Presses. “The DI press is a perfect fit for the BCT business model, and the results achieved by Craig and his team, once again prove this out.”
Presstek 34DI Digital Offset Press
The Presstek 34DI digital offset press delivers environmentally friendly high quality, four-color offset printing, economical in runs as low as 250. Presstek DI presses, in their fourth generation, are the bridge that spans the production gap between conventional offset and digital toner-based presses. According to InfoTrends research, the Presstek DI delivers a 50 percent cost savings on average per letter-size page when compared to a high-volume production color digital press and job profitability is 13 percent higher on a DI press when compared to a conventional offset press.
“Acquiring the Presstek 34DI was the right decision for us,” concludes Wasserman.  “Had we not purchased the press, our business would have taken a real tumble with this economy.  The DI press has allowed us to hold our own.”
