World’s first production-level digital printing & foiling press adds stylish decoration and expanded color gamut to official public documents
MELBOURNE, FL, USA – In the scenic, ancient Southern French town of Uzes, near Nimes, there are many remnants of Roman and medieval architecture still visible today. However, amidst the stones and walls of thousand year old aqueducts and churches, there is also a dramatic story of a traditional family printing business taking a quantum leap into the future with the new MGI Meteor Unlimited Colors digital printing and Variable Data Foiling (VDF) solution.
Government Focus Equals Business Success
The SEDI Group was founded in 1946 and CEO Roland Bervillé, whose father Claude started the firm, is currently leading the firm to new heights of printing excellence. Since the beginning, the SEDI Group always specialized in the provision of printed material for local French community government operations. The SEDI Group has more than 170 employees in the various operations of the group and generates approximately $27 million in annual revenue. In a remarkable success story, SEDI now provides printing services to more than 80% of the municipalities in France.
Digital Foiling Applications & Expanded Color Technology
SEDI is now able to produce output with a virtually unlimited number of colors via the blending of CMYK toner and the reflective qualities of foil film – including a rainbow spectrum of hues with metallic, glitter and holographic effects.
Improved Taxpayer Documents & Services
Mr. Bervillé, explained: "The phenomenon of using digital variable data for printing has reached into local government departments and community agencies. When a newlywed couple receives a signed marriage certificate and civic family guide from the hands of their Mayor, they want their official documents to be memorable souvenirs and keepsake heirlooms for their children. Printing their names in gold foil letters with the Meteor Unlimited Colors solution from MGI helps to achieve this.”
A Meteoric Journey of Printing Success
With the help of local MGI dealer, RS Distribution, SEDI became the first printer in the world to implement the Meteor Unlimited Colors solution in early 2016. SEDI Group has been a loyal customer of MGI for many years and counts several Meteor digital presses in its machine inventory. The multi-substrate application diversity of MGI presses is a critical factor in the firm’s continued growth. SEDI keeps their Meteor machines busy around the clock on multiple shifts each week. A classic example of Meteor workhorse power and durability is the printing of stationary, letterhead and envelopes for elected officials and government offices.
