The new center will be used not only for demonstrations but for customer training as well.

Customers will be able to see the systems operate in a production setting, making the demonstration or training more realistic. The center also features technology that supports customers with training and service on-line, in real time, with video, remote diagnostics and a newly created educational series on selling inkjet.

The seminar series teaches business owners how the inkjet technology of the industry award winning iJetColor Press, powered by Memjet, makes 4-color envelope or label printing profitable  in less than a year even with very modest print volumes.

“The iJetColor Press has made short-run 4-color work a reality for our customers,” commented Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “The iJetColor Press enhances a print shop’s existing operations by adding a high performance, low cost digital inkjet press to enable personalized short run color printing. iJetColor Press owners have experienced incredible cost savings and added new revenue opportunities with the iJetColor Press.”

The seminar features case studies from accounts to illustrate how even with a moderate demand for short-run 4-color work, profitability is possible in under twelve months in most cases. Beyond profitability, the improvement in performance and productivity is also significant allowing customers to often receive a 4-color short-run envelope or packaging jobs the same day rather than in 5-7 business days.

The iJetColor Envelope Press is a compact, table top, 4-color inkjet press powered by Memjet technology suitable for supporting production paper stocks as heavy as .02 inch/.5 mm on up to 8.5” by 17” substrate for product personalization of:

  • Envelopes
  • Direct Mail and Post Cards
  • Stationery
  • Invitations and Greeting Cards

The iJetColor Label Press is a compact, table top, 4-color inkjet press suitable for supporting production label stocks for product packaging personalization, variable data barcoding, shelf labels, product labels for retail and industrial applications. The system features:

  • Roll-to-roll printing
  • Fan fold printing
  • Continuous label printing
  • Integrated cutter
  • 60 feet per minute speed
  • Gap mark sensing
  • Black mark sensing
  • Integrated touch-screen user control system

The iJetColor Press adds new revenue opportunities to print shops, making it extremely affordable to produce 4-color jobs and capitalize on new mailing and fulfillment opportunities.  

“We continue to see a tremendous level of interest in the iJetColor Press as well as an understanding by shop owners of how the system will directly benefit their business. Owners have done their homework and are ready to invest,” continued Murphy.
