Colorado print trailblazer installs the Canon imagePRESS C8000VP.

Melville, N.Y. – Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that Mail Solutions & Printing has opened the door to new and dynamic business opportunities with the recent installation of the Canon imagePRESS C8000VP Color Digital Press and Océ PRISMAproduction Server Print Workflow and Output Management solution. Following the installation, the Colorado-based mail solutions provider is poised to take its company to new heights and enhance its dynamic offerings with industry-leading cutsheet technology. 

"Ever since we installed our new Canon digital press, we've continued to grow and prosper while acquiring new customers from around the area, both large and small," said Jessica Price, Mail Solutions & Printing's manager. "People throughout the area trust us to produce jobs with outstanding quality and as quickly as possible. With our latest Canon investment, we've exceeded our expectations and experienced a considerable growth in business." 

To Mail Solutions & Printing, community is everything. A family operated business since 1986 in Erie, Colorado, Mail Solutions & Printing embraces the local, "homey" feel of its surroundings and ensures customers that each job receives the same level of vitality that is synonymous with the naturally beautiful region. As explained by Price, with an open door policy to its customers that fosters a sense of trust and reliability, the growing mail solutions company strives to comprise itself of talented and hardworking employees and encourages them to stay at the forefront of the ever-evolving print and mailing industries.

As part of that push, Price indicates that Mail Solutions & Printing has made direct mail offerings its priority over the last 20 years. When time came to update its production capabilities and adapt to new advancements in sheet-fed technology, Mail Solutions & Printing turned to Canon Solutions America for enhancements in both a production press and production workflow solutions. Because of the unique variety in jobs, quality and productivity were paramount to Mail Solutions & Printing's buying decision, and was ultimately the determining factor when the mail solutions trailblazer chose the Canon imagePRESS C8000VP and PRISMAproduction to enable a full end-to-end solution.

Engineered to deliver production printing excellence for the business advantage of its users, the Canon imagePRESS C8000VP was designed to help commercial printers, in-plants, production hubs, transaction print, and direct mail providers, like Mail Solutions & Printing, produce a broader range of applications in shorter turnaround times. According to Price, her decision to go with the sheet-fed digital press was the ability to move more prints and new applications off the press to generate new revenue streams. 

"With our previous printing equipment, we felt that we weren't able to garner every opportunity due to lack of quality and delays in production," affirmed Price. "We do quite a bit of government-type mailings and work closely with the local universities on their direct mail needs, so striving to provide unwavering quality and efficiency is critical to maintaining and growing our relationships with these valued customers."  

Price and members of her marketing team noted that the ability to handle larger and more complex jobs has positively impacted the company's bottom line. They note that revenue streams are also positively affected by the presses ability to provide an in-line finishing portfolio for white-paper-in, finished-product-out workflows and unprecedented streamlined workflow support through PRISMAproduction. 

Equally important to the recent installation is the ongoing support Mail Solutions & Printing has received from Canon Solutions America's Production Print Solutions service team. Embracing the familial culture that is evident at Mail Solutions & Printing, Canon Solutions America installed the sheet-fed press and has since worked with Mail Solutions & Printing on exploring new abilities and uses for the Canon imagePRESS C8000VP. 

"It's been a great experience working with Canon Solutions America," said Price. "From the easy and efficient installation to outstanding training and support, we look forward to expanding our relationship with the company and growing our fleet to include more of their digital presses. Everyone at Canon Solutions America is looking out for us, which is critical to our success as we continue to grow our business and work with new customers."
