Professional photo lab first to purchase new Xerox Color 1000 Press

Press release from the issuing company

Rochester, NY – H&H Color Lab, a professional photo lab, is the first in its industry to purchase the new Xerox Corporation Xerox Color 1000 Press from FUJIFILM North America Corporation.

"The image quality is fantastic, which is critical when producing photo applications – skin tones and blue skies need to be replicated with precision," said David Drum, business development manager, H&H Color Lab.

The Xerox Color 1000 Press, which prints 100 pages per minute, produces high-definition image quality on a wide range of paper stocks. It includes an optional clear dry ink station that amplifies full-color jobs and allows for images and text to be highlighted for visual impact, or digital watermarks applied for artistic effect or security.

"The right technology investments can help print providers do more in less time, keep existing customers and expand into new markets – and that's what the Xerox Color 800/1000 Presses are all about," said Eric Armour, president, Global Business Group, Xerox Corporation. "In this economy, the more value added to each page printed, the better. The presses round out the Xerox color portfolio, and allow our customers to select the device that will best meet their needs."

The Kansas City, Mo.-based photo lab serves professional photographers in all 50 states. They will use the new press to create high-value photo applications such as customized greeting cards, calendars and hard and soft cover commemorative books.

"As a total solutions provider to our customers in the imaging and graphic arts space, it is very important to us that we deliver the best possible solution to our customers," said Manny Almeida, vice president and general manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. "We have a long, strong relationship with H&H that is very important to us, so we are committed to delivering only the best product and service solutions to meet their needs."

Image quality, productivity and media latitude were the most important elements in the buying decision, according to Drum. The company will use the broad media latitude to deliver a wide range of customer applications – from lightweight, postage-saving mailers and heavyweight wedding guest books to personalized little league trading cards.

The new press will complement the lab's existing Xerox DocuColor 250 Digital Color Copier/Printer and a Xerox 700 Digital Color Press. H&H Color Lab uses the Xerox Picture Me Profitable Kit, part of the ProfitAccelerator Digital Business Resources portfolio, to design and market its photo specialty products.
