Published on June 2, 2011

O'Niel Data Systems started as an in-house printer for the stock market but Jim Lucanish, President of O'Niel Data Systems, shares how far they've grown and talks a little about their recent expansion.

Interviewer: Hi, I'm Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here with Jim Lucanish who president of O’Neil Data systems in LA, the left coast.

Jim Lucanish: Hi, how are you?

Interviewer: I'm good. How are you?

Jim Lucanish: Good.

Interviewer: Can you tell us a little about O’Neil Data Systems, your history, how long you’ve been in business, how many employees, what kind of stuff you do?

Jim Lucanish: O’Neil has been around since 1974. Primarily we’re an in-house printer for the stock market, which evolved into commercial print. Basically we do a lot of healthcare, transactional, some books.

Interviewer: And how many employees?

Jim Lucanish: We have about 180.

Interviewer: And what does your production platform look like?

Jim Lucanish: We’re primarily—we used to be offset until the offset gloom hit. Now we’ve moved to inkjet technology

Interviewer: And so do you have any offset left?

Jim Lucanish: Yes, we do. We do and there is always a need for offset, yeah.

Interviewer: Yeah and so the kinds of applications that you’re producing mostly now are-

Jim Lucanish: We’re doing a lot of bound personalized books. We do a lot of healthcare statement work, EOBs, EOCs, evidence of coverage books. We do ID cards. We do all of AARP’s membership.

Interviewer: Wow, yeah and the AARP guy, he used to be with Xerox, Barry Rand [ph].

Jim Lucanish: Yes.

Interviewer: Is he still there?

Jim Lucanish: You know I'm not sure. I'm dealing with the west coast.

Interviewer: He is like the CEO. And so I understand you’re expanding out of California.

Jim Lucanish: Yes, we are. We’re expanding into Dallas. We’ve purchased a building there in Plano, Texas, so we’re hoping to open June 1st. 

Interviewer: And will that be a sort of integrated workflow between the two plants or will they be separate?

Jim Lucanish: It will be an integrated workflow. We’re going to do digital dynamic mailing which means that a big mouthful, taking the stream of mail in and positioning properly for the quickest delivery.

Interviewer: So in a job or in a collection of jobs some of it will be printed in LA and some of it—that’s great.

Jim Lucanish: Yes.

Interviewer: That’s very cool.

Jim Lucanish: We’ve built all that.

Interviewer: Okay. Well thank you.

What Color is Consistent?

Published: January 20, 2017

Color management works, and it has been available to designers and printers for more than 25 years. Why then do we still make mistakes in color reproduction? Shoshana Burgett of X-Rite Pantone notes that CM has to be understood as something more than calibrating a monitor. It is a set of steps, processes, and tools that must be in place across the entire production workflow, always with monitoring for continuous improvement. Designers who want color to be consistent in all the channels they are now responsible for can find the help they need in CM, Burgett says.
