VALHALLA, N.Y. (May 6, 2004) – While it sounds like a trying tongue-twister, it’s important news for the owners and customers of Seaside Printing Company, Inc. in Long Beach, Calif. The general commercial printer recently installed a Fujifilm Saber violet laser platesetter and Co-Res Screening, as well as an Epson 7600 inkjet proofer, as part of a transition to an all-digital workflow.
“We didn’t have CTP prior to this, so it was a complete change from a conventional workflow,” says Mark Cochrane, who owns Seaside Printing with his partner Joe LaCombe. “We’ve been very, very pleased with it.” Cochrane and LaCombe worked with representatives from Enovation Graphic Systems, Inc. to select and install the new technologies.
“We worked closely with Enovation and they helped us determine that this particular solution was the best fit for our company,” adds Cochrane.
A full-service printing company, Seaside Printing has been providing customers with a full range of printing, mailing and graphics services since 1908. And, says Cochrane, the company strives to maintain the most up-to-date equipment and technologies in order to not only meet, but also exceed, customers’ needs and expectations.
With Fujifilm’s Co-Res Screening, Seaside Printing is able to do just that.
A unique screening technology developed by Fujifilm, Co-Res Screening works to deliver superior images without any compromise in time during prepress. Time, as all printers know and understand, is crucial. “The biggest advantages we’ve seen with Co-Res Screening is quicker makeready times and quicker press checks,” explains LaCombe. “We haven’t had any problems and our customers are very happy with the faster press checks.”
Seaside Printing uses Co-Res Screening on every job and Cochrane says it gives them the ability to offer superior quality to each and every customer. While the commitment to quality remains unchanged at Seaside Printing, the technology the company uses is constantly evolving. “We’ve had the foresight to recognize the dramatic changes affecting our business and to steadily invest in new technologies as they develop,” continues Cochrane. “With all of the technologies we implement, we aim to ease the flow of every job we print. That translates into faster delivery times, better print quality and more accurate colors – something that all of our clients appreciate.”
