Presstek and Customers to Showcase Solutions at On Demand
Press release from the issuing company
HUDSON, N.H., April 2 -- Presstek Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of digital offset printing business solutions, will demonstrate how to deliver increased profitability and higher printing quality at the upcoming On Demand Conference and Expo. In addition, Presstek customers will speak on conference panels, outlining how they have successfully addressed today's printing challenges.
During the conference - April 16-19 at Boston's Convention & Exhibition Center - Presstek will demonstrate its flexible and efficient printing solutions that yield superior quality in a cost-effective manner. A typical job on a direct-to-press - or Direct Imaging (DI(R)) - device, such as a Presstek 52DI, costs on average about half as much per page as that of a comparable job run on high-volume, color, toner-based digital equipment, according to InfoTrends' U.S. Print On Demand Market Forecast: 2005-2010.
With over 3,000 DI systems installed worldwide, Presstek's family of DI presses continues to offer a competitive advantage in the short-run growth market segment. InfoTrends market data further states that run lengths between 250 and 10,000 impressions represent the market's "sweet spot," particularly suited to Presstek solutions.
"Presstek solutions are designed to deliver the most profitable short-run color in the on demand space," said Todd Chambers, Presstek's chief marketing officer. "By delivering fast turnaround, cost-effective, superior quality through the combination of digital and offset, DI presses help drive our customers' business growth. Our customers continually demonstrate how the DI has helped them become more competitive in their market."
Customer Testimonials: Real World View of DI Printing
Boston's Copy Cop CEO Grover Daniels will be among the speakers at On Demand. Daniels notes that when he acquired Copy Cop in 2004, his 3000+ customers were expressing the need for higher quality, short-run offset printing solutions. While leases and monthly click charges for high-end, toner-based, digital printers proved cost-prohibitive, the Presstek DI offered an affordable solution with outstanding quality, according to Daniels.
"Having retail locations, an online and offline presence and a high- quality DI press allows us to grow the printing business faster than traditional printers," Daniels said. "With the DI, we can deliver first-class customer service and become a market leader in short-run printing demands."
Due to the Presstek DI's ability to complement both conventional offset and toner-based devices, Presstek customers have successfully met today's printing challenges. In addition to Daniels, the other Presstek customers who will be discussing their experiences at On Demand are:
-- Matt Doran, President, Andstadt Printing, York, PA
-- Mitch Freundlich, CEO, AccelaGraphics of New England, Westborough, MA and President of NAQP (National Association of Quick Printers)
