Delta Graphics Installs New Printmaster 52 GTO

Friday, January 15, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, GA - Delta Graphics, West Los Angeles, CA, is a small commercial print shop with an emphasis on custom work for ad agencies and design studios both here and abroad. Since the company's founding in 1959, it has established an enviable reputation for consistent quality and reliability, as well as for environmentally responsible printing practices. To keep more of its small-format work in-house, Delta recently purchased and installed a Heidelberg Printmaster 52 GTO 2-color perfecting press, and in so doing realized significant improvement in efficiency and reductions in waste on a growing volume of small-format, short-order work.

"We used to outsource many of our print short-run, small-format jobs-typically, fancy stationery systems, envelopes and the like-or produce them on our 28" machine, which needs 150 sheets to come up to color," said Sean McCollough, owner, "Obviously, we had a lot more waste. With the new Printmaster 52 GTO, not only are we up to color within five sheets, but we also gain the flexibility to process a variety of formats and stocks, along with enhanced efficiency and ease-of-use. We also retain better control over the job. Customers tend to like the smaller sheet, especially since we also do a lot of die cutting and foil stamping on those orders. The Printmaster 52 GTO is a perfect match for the kind of work we do and the quality standards we strive to maintain."

Elsewhere in the shop, Delta Graphics utilizes a Heidelberg drum scanner, Topsetter P74 platesetter, RIP system and workflow, as well as a Stahlfolder USA B 20 pile-fed folder, a POLAR 92E programmable paper cutter, and assorted Heidelberg Saphira consumables, including plates. Established in 1959, the $2 million, family run company employs a staff of 12.

"We've been very happy with our Heidelberg purchases," McCollough said. "Not only are they are a reliable partner, but the service is also terrific."
