The new press will open up a wide range of high-end finishing options
GLENDALE, California – Scodix, the leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, today announced they have sold and installed a Scodix Ultra Pro digital enhancement press to 4over.com, headquartered in Glendale, California.
The new press is a “game changer” for the company, which is an industry trailblazer in print order fulfillment for print brokers, commercial printers and industry professionals. Specifically, 4over purchased their Scodix Ultra Pro with a foil unit to expand the capabilities they will be able to offer their customers, allowing them to now produce a wide range of high-end specialty finishing products.
“At 4over, we’ve always prided ourselves on offering an unprecedented product mix, best-in-class equipment and superior quality, and our nationwide delivery network is unmatched in trade printing,” notes Zarik Megerdichian, CEO of 4over.com. “The addition of the Scodix digital enhancement system not only meets our production demands of speed and quality, but it enables us to create a robust new revenue stream. It’s a business opportunity that positions 4over at the forefront of newly emerging market segments in the print industry.”
The feature the company is most excited about is the ability to expand their raised spot-UV coatings in combination with foil finishing options. “We launched Raised Spot UV on Suede cardstock and Raised Spot UV with Foil on Suede cardstock, and with the press, we are going to be able to expand those product offerings in some very interesting ways,” says Megerdichian. “Our customers have responded very positively to both products, and we are excited about seeing where we can take them next.”
Digital Foiling Module
The Scodix Foil Station, which is an optional module 4over chose to include in their configuration, runs in-line with the Scodix Ultra Pro, delivering unmatched foil enhancement capabilities. It deploys a wide range of hot and cold industry-standard foil films, coupled with a variety of substrates and processes, including offset, digital, plastics, laminated/non-laminated, and coated and uncoated options.
“These enhanced capabilities remove many cost restrictions for our customers and allow us to appeal to the short to medium run markets with high-end products at a fraction of the cost compared to our competitors,” says Megerdichian. “We expect this to open up a range of new opportunities to service our customers with high-end personalization capabilities using a streamlined digital process.”
