"We built our business in the 1990s with DocuTechs, and now Xerox has delivered again with the iGen3 press," said John Mahoney, director of sales and marketing, Mahoney Print Services. "This digital press is our future. It is keeping us competitive and is a big reason why we are generating a profit."
The company has tripled its print run lengths with the Xerox iGen3 and is now able to produce jobs on a wider range of paper more quickly, consistently and economically. Mahoney Print Services is also increasing the number of short-run, full-color marketing and postcard jobs and is beginning to grow its personalized direct mail business.
