“We had been looking for an efficient digital press that would serve our ever-growing short-runs,” said Sam Sowlaty, owner, Acuprint. “We were not able to be competitive with price-points due to the limitations of producing short runs on our litho presses, and we struggled with color matching on short-run and repeat jobs. Our jobs on litho would involve hours of color matching, along with averaging thousands of dollars in labor and make-ready waste. With the J Press 720S there is no need for that extra overhead.”
Fujifilm’s second generation sheetfed J Press 720S prints a 29.6-inch x 20.9 inch sheet with an output of 2,700 sheets per hour.
New jobs are now positively affecting the bottom line at Acuprint. “Previously, we had many opportunities for new jobs, but we just couldn’t manage them. The J Press 720S is a definite advantage that ‘fills the gap’ and enables us to move more and more jobs from offset to the J Press 720S,” said Sowlaty.
