Press release from the issuing company

Andover, MA – Standard Finishing Systems announces the following new product installations:
ColorCentric Corporation in Rochester, New York recently added a new Standard Horizon BQ-470 PUR automated floor-model binder to their full-service bindery. The binder's intelligent, icon-based color touchscreen provides quick, easy and automated set-up, and allows for instant recall of regular jobs from memory.  According to John Lacagnina Sr., founder and president, "The BQ-470 is everything and more than we expected. The ability to support PUR binding lets us produce superior-quality digital color books in ultra-short run quantities at a competitive price."  The sale was completed by Standard dealer Precision Offset and Bindery, Inc. of Rochester, NY.  ColorCentric serves industry-leading companies in the photo and publishing markets with a core vision that includes digital print automation, lean manufacturing and the latest technology to reduce cost, time to market and workload for their clients.  

Paulsen Printing Company, based in Memphis, TN recently increased their finishing capabilities with the addition of a Standard Horizon StitchLiner 5500 saddlestitching system with in-line three-knife trimmer.  "The StitchLiner has allowed us to increase our productivity, because of the quick automated changeovers and set-ups.  And, being able to load flat sheet signatures directly into the StitchLiner, helps us to eliminate off-line signature folding" said Jim Paulsen, Owner, Paulsen Printing.   Since installation the productivity of the system has enabled Paulsen Printing to dramatically increase the number of saddlestitching jobs they can efficiently process each day.  The sale was completed by Standard dealer Printers & Duplicator Service, Inc. of Nashville, TN.  Paulsen Printing Company, founded in 1978, is a full-service commercial printer that provides graphic design and prepress, offset printing, and bindery & finishing services.  

Trust-Franklin Press in Pittsburgh, PA recently added a new Standard Horizon AFC-566FKT automated floor-model paper folder to their full-service bindery. "The intelligent automation on this folder gives us ultra-fast changeovers, drastically reducing our set-up labor on short runs" said company president Gary Friedman. "We're saving time, improving quality and reducing spoilage. And our production manager reports that the AFC was quick and easy to learn, so operators were up-and-folding in record time."  The folder's icon-based color touchscreen provides fast, automated set-up, and allows for instant recall of regular jobs from memory. Trust Franklin also owns a Standard Horizon StitchLiner 5500 automated saddlestitching system.  Both sales were completed by Standard dealer Graphco of Solon, Ohio.  Trust-Franklin Press has been a family business since 1908, providing the highest levels of service and print value to Pittsburgh designers, print brokers, small businesses, large corporations and churches, synagogues, schools, colleges and other nonprofit organizations.  

JCPenney, one of America's leading retailers, recently installed a Standard Hunkeler Roll-to-Cut/Stack/Fold combination system in its Home Office print facility in Plano, Texas. Running in-line with a Xerox 1300 continuous-feed printer, this system features the WM6 slit/merge module and CS6 cutter, and automatically diverts stacked sets from the LS6 stacker to an in-line buckle folder. "The new Standard Hunkeler system gives JCPenney the speed of web printing with the ability to run 'roll-to-fold' and 'roll-to-stacks' from the same file," says Jeff Bowen, JCPenney's Print Services Manager. "The custom application has greatly improved our efficiency, allowing us to complete more printing projects for our internal clients within the walls of our own facility."
