Printing Impressions (press release)
“Honestly, I can't remember the last time I got a phone call prior to a reorder coming up where the rep asked to ensure that we were printing the right piece. Don't get me wrong, I like this guy. He is on time, professional and a pleasure to do ...
Of course when a new client comes in and wants a price, you sometimes don't know if they are the type that has been going to a copy center, and doesn't expect any hand holding, or if they are a client that will pay more for your personalized time and care.
With some clients your competing with Office Depot's copy center, and with others your competing with other printing firms and their professional CSRs, but you sometimes don't know which they are when they as for a quote.
So my question is do you charge a guy walking in off the street wanting copies, different from a purchaser for a large corporation?
If they initiate contact and want pricing, how do you determine which pricing to apply to them?
The first exposition of the plate is correct. In the second exposition this error appear:
"Edge detected beyond the begining of the plate". Some problems with laser appear too.
Reset the machine and again have success with the first one. The second can not be exposed
I cleaned almost everything I think.
Sensors, Strip, Drum, holes.
Please someone could give me some advice about this problem.
Thanks on advance.
Is it with a motor or a ratchet?
Looking at one in a video, it seemed that it did not turn continuously.
Follow me for a second here and I give you the background for my thinking on this one. It's not exactly the butterfly effect but you do have to connect the dots a little bit to get to this.
As somebody may know, I'm looking for an cheap wide format printer, and two candidates is found.:
1: Canon imageprograf ipf600 24" equal to approx 722$
2: Canon imageprograf ipf5000 17" equal to 122 $
Both with claimed defective print head, and both uses the same head, the pf-03
The ipf5000 have som empty ink cartridges, but is much cheaper and is just a few miles away from me. Is this printer still competitive when it comes to print quality?
The ipf imageprograf 600 is one owner, little used, can take wider print, but is steaper price wise.
I suppose the ipf is more modern and newer technology?
Any thoughts will be appreciated :)

There's a lot to be said for the funnel idea because it describes the sales process, creating order out of many sales prospects and suspects matching their needs, interests, and motivations with your sales offerings. But it tends impose the structure ...
Although programmatic TV executions are far from "real-time," agencies and some of the digital DSPs have made headway as suppliers open up greater access to inventory . MDC Partners' Varick Media Management is one of them.
INDUSTRY ANALYSIS: The pros and cons of 3d printing
Additive manufacturing – the official term for 3D printing - has been used by the automotive and aerospace industries to build prototypes for some time now. But over the last few years, 3D print technologies have evolved more rapidly. Nike recently ...
For many organizations, branding and rebranding can be addressed in deliberate fashion over a period of months. But what happens when circumstances—such as unexpected passage of emergency legislation—force a very quick and unplanned turnaround?
Just such an event is now happening in the electronic cigarette (e-cig) industry, where young children across the country have ingested the liquid nicotine used in e-cigs. In addition to repeated calls for child-proof packaging from a growing number of states, the federal government also is weighing in on the dilemma.
The challenge doesn’t stop there. Many nicotine liquids are candy or fruit flavored and come in colorful packages that appeal to children. They also carry such names as Peppermint Patty, Bubble Gum and Caramel Surprise. So, along with childproofing, e-cig companies now face rebranding challenges to make the products less attractive to kids while continuing to draw adult buyer interest.
Right about now, you may be wondering how this could possibly apply to you. Well, in our lightning-fast-changing world, no one can know for sure if or when their brand may come under attack. For example, it’s highly unlikely that the makers of pet food saw the specter of tainted ingredients that wound up harming and killing many animals.
But, the time to face the potential need for rapidly changing branding, including labels and packaging, is long before anything occurs. Just as companies increasingly have reputation management crisis plans in place to address future negative reports and reviews, look at how a rapid rebranding process could unfold. Among the areas to address:
1. Fast-track team assembly/responsibilities. Determine what team members will oversee the effort. Establish pertinent task lists, deadlines, budget and how revisions and approvals will be fast-tracked.
2. Concept creation. Assign the appropriate team members to oversee the big picture of the rebranding effort. (It might even be useful to do some brainstorming sooner than later about what ideas could be in play for this effort, providing a jump start of sorts.)
3. Design and content development. Decide if/how to use in-house and/or contracted services to create what’s needed quickly. If time permits, consider holding a crowdsourcing competition to get outside ideas/input into the process—and perhaps get some positive social and mainstream media coverage at the same time.
4. Make sure that all printing and packaging systems can rapidly deploy. Digital label printing can provide the best option for quick turnaround (can be ready to ship in 1-2 days from receipt of approved artwork),offers cost-effective pricing in any quantity up to 10,000, and delivers quality comparable to or better than other forms of printing.
In today’s dynamic marketplace where social media-fueled comments and reports can spread literally like wildfire in a matter of minutes, it’s important to get and stay way ahead of the game—even if you think you’re immune from emergent problems. You never know for sure.
I am hoping other people with Versants can tell me if this is something unique to our machine, or if it is an issue with the model. Worst case the mis-register is almost a 16th of an inch. Our C75 registers so well that when we trim a lift it will split the hairline register mark all the way down the stack.
