Your print engines are an important part of meeting customer expectations.  When purchasing a new press, you need to ask:

  • How do you know if it will meet your clients' expectations for color match and repeatability?
  • How do you know if the printer was set up properly?
  • How do you know what is “normal?”

Attend this session to learn how you can benchmark prospective printing devices, purchase the best printer for your requirements, and be up and running within hours of the installation.  If you are purchasing a new digital or conventional press, what level of color variation and accuracy should you expect? Does the print align with the existing printers that you have?

We have benchmarked over 40 print devices and we stack rank them based on gamut size (range of color), color variation, color accuracy and resolution.  You will leave this session knowing how to benchmark presses and you will never purchase a new or used printing device without doing this exercise first.

We call it document re-engineering, but what we are talking about is identifying the elements of business documents and preserving their legacy while keeping them relevant. New logos and brand colors are only part of the conversation. What about changing business rules and expanding output channels? Let's talk about the nuts and bolts of practical document re-engineering!
