One of the Most Experienced Digital Enhancement Users in U.S. Steps Up to Install Scodix

Press release from the issuing company

Cleveland, Ohio – Scodix today announced the sales and installation of a Scodix Ultra2 Pro with Foil press at Northern Ohio Printing (NOP), a full-service print shop, providing B2B services from their Cleveland headquartered operations. In their 25th year of service (founded in 1994), NOP has often been attracted to value-added innovation. Accordingly, the company was an early adopter of digital enhancement technology, acquiring their first system in 2013. With more than five years of experience and understanding to draw upon, NOP has made the calculated step up to Scodix, installing their Ultra2 Pro system in April.

“For the first four years, we were content with using the MGI system, yet we kept seeing Scodix at every major industry event, and their name is constantly popping up in trade news media. Last fall we decided we needed more of a production system and finalized our deal with Scodix in November,” noted NOP President, Gary Chmielewski. “The Scodix Ultra2 Pro with Foil is built for production and the software interface is very user-friendly. In addition, Scodix fully understands the needs and wants of the service provider… they want to work with us and partner in our success.”

NOP serves a loyal and growing customer base of just under 1000 clients nationwide. Renowned for always striving to exceed expectations, NOP executives have relied upon technological innovation to deliver value-added project elements with the “X-factor” customers are looking for in today’s market. Working directly with mostly corporate print buyers (only 5% print brokers and ad agencies), the market has learned to depend upon NOP for remarkable “people, value and technology”. Chmielewski notes, “NOP tends to be an early adopter of promising innovation. For example, we are the only digital enhancement provider in the greater Cleveland area.”

“Already we’re realizing a significant boost in both quality and the attention garnered from clients. The Ultra2 offers us a superior level of capabilities to offer clients. Especially the Foil Module which is a real game-changer. Yet other features such as Scodix Crystal™ [adds colorful, sparkle effects, creating a 3D dimension when applied with high-build polymer] and user-controlled versatility to change polymer depth, are major and highly-appreciated features. These are just some of the many value-add tools that give us unrivaled creative control.”

Chmielewski updated progress, noting, “We’ve already run countless jobs through the Scodix system, and I can assure you that it has far exceeded our expectations. Just about every client we’ve shown it to has expressed interest in applying one of our new enhancement techniques to their print jobs. As I said, it’s a real game-changer… Not just for NOP but for each client’s project. And for short-run production value, it’s ideal. That’s where the value is.”
