W+D, the leading direct mail solutions provider announces the release of a new excel software tool to help envelope and graphic communication printers determine the economics of high-speed Memjet inkjet overprinting and allows the user to do real word “what ifs” with their own production variables such as costs, sell price and job run sizes, to determine contribution margin and ROI.
Andrew Schipke W+D Vice President of Sales and Marketing said “we developed this tool because of the confusion that many offset printers and users of multiple desktop digital output devices have with understanding the real economics of a high-speed production class inkjet press like the W+D Halm i-jet which uses Memjet production class inkjet print technology and can run 32,000 #10 envelopes per hour at 1600 x 1375 dpi. The W+D Halm i-jet has now been our most successful inkjet products with 13 presses already installed and 4 in production yet to deliver since it was given a Best in Class Must See’em at PRINT 17 . One early adopter has 4 operational W+D Halm i-jets and just ordered 2 more. Another two customers have already ordered their 2nd machines.
The excel spreadsheet comes populated with variables that we see as realistic in the North American market for envelopes overprinting and shows real world job print examples for ink coverage. ROI paybacks within one year are typically seen for printers with yearly volumes as low as 5 million envelopes running very short job lengths of 2,000 envelopes. Depending on the amount of ink coverage jobs run lengths as high as 90,000 envelopes will be done more profitably and quicker than on desk top systems and offset. Again, the strength of this excel tool is that you can do “what if” analysis based on your specific production requirements.”
