Ryobi Printing Presses, Local Service Key to Success for Fast-Growing Texas Commercial Printer

Press release from the issuing company

MIAMI--Feb. 1, 2006-- Dana Mueller, owner and CEO of Designer Graphics, Tyler, TX, has become a highly sought-after printer of political materials for local, state and national campaigns. He says his business growth and success owes in great measure to his Ryobi presses, which enable him to quickly serve a demanding customer base and significantly boost his profits. A RYOBI 750 series press, from the same family as the 23 x 29 inch press Mueller recently installed, is being demonstrated live during Miami's Graphics of the Americas/Xplor International Expo, February 3-5, Booth 1219, by the exclusive South Florida Ryobi dealer, Spinola Printers Supply of Sunrise, FL. Mueller says his new Ryobi mid-size, six-up press and his Ryobi DI press allow him to easily meet aggressive production needs, flexibly shifting from short gang-runs to million-impression projects. Political organizations expect immediate availability and highly competitive pricing and Mueller says his Ryobi presses have enabled him to successfully meet their needs. Mueller says his RYOBI 755 six-station press with UV capabilities "can have the job done before larger competing shops are in register." "What I like most about the press is that everything flows so easily--from the computer to the press to the first sheet off the press," the veteran commercial printer explains. "In my business, we produce a lot of time-sensitive material and a quick turnaround is critical." With the Ryobi UV press, he says, "we can be at color in 50 sheets, we're in register shortly after the press is up and running and the job is printed quickly. The color is accurate, the project is dry, it goes straight to quality-control, then to the cutter, the folder and out the door." In addition to being pleased with the quality of his RYOBI 755 and RYOBI 3404 DI presses, Mueller says he receives strong response from the xpedx Printing Technologies team. xpedx is the exclusive full-line importer and distributor of Ryobi presses in the United States. "One of the reasons we bought the equipment is that I have confidence in the support the xpedx Printing Technologies team offers," said Mueller. "They're local and can be here whenever we need them. And they help us with suggestions, workflow and all the different things that make up a print shop. You just can't beat that kind of support." The 750 series can be equipped with perfectors, coating units, UV curing units and infrared dryers. UV features on the press enable instant drying, offer superior rub resistance and the ability to do chemical embossed printing, which produces a raised image that contrasts with the high-gloss UV coating. It also enables lenticular and MetalFX, a five color printing process that uses silver as the fifth color.
