Konica Minolta Installs Fourth AccurioJet KM-1e LED UV Inkjet Press at PostcardMania to Support Fastest-growing Business Segments

Ramsey, NJ -- Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leader in industrial and commercial printing and packaging solutions, is pleased to announce the installation of its generation 4 AccurioJet KM-1e LED UV Inkjet Press at PostcardMania, a nationwide marketing company headquartered in Clearwater, Florida. The additional KM-1e will support the company’s growth in direct mail and integrated projects for a wide range of customers.

PostcardMania’s original AccurioJet KM-1 Press was the first installed in North America in August 2016, and is still running multiple shifts a day, along with one each of the generation 2, 3 and 4 presses to support PCM Integrations, the company’s integrations and automation-led division. PCM Integrations continues to spearhead growth for PostcardMania, with top-line revenue growth of 76.5 percent in the first quarter of 2024. The multimillion-dollar division focuses on direct API integration to any software or CRM, giving users the ability to send direct mail as easily as email, with scalable programmatic targeting, delivering responsive lead nurturing without any upfront costs or recurring technology fees.

“We’re excited to add another Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1e press to our operations,” said Joy Gendusa, Founder and CEO of PostcardMania. “In 2023, we achieved record revenue, crossing the $100 million mark at PostcardMania to hit $104.6 million, which represents eight percent top-line growth over 2022 and continued post-pandemic success. A lot of that success is thanks to the KM-1e’s amazing inkjet technology, along with its superior uptime and job flexibility, allowing us to pass on email-level customization to our mailing clients at scale. With our additional KM-1e press, we'll be able to sustain our growth going forward and continue our mission of helping business owners across the country grow and expand their businesses with proven mailing solutions.”

According to Gendusa, who was recently profiled as one of Konica Minolta’s Women Leaders in Print during the company’s International Women’s Day Campaign, the KM-1e’s flexibility and range of automated features are among its many strengths. “It has been key to the exceptional growth in our automated products and divisions, which require the highest quality and versatility in digital printing.”

“We’re proud that Konica Minolta is the vendor of choice for market leaders like PostcardMania who want the best production inkjet technology to help their customers’ businesses expand and grow,” said Frank Mallozzi, President, Industrial and Production Print, Konica Minolta. “It has been our pleasure to partner with the innovative leadership and people at PostcardMania. Their investment in a fourth AccurioJet KM-1e speaks to the overall productivity and flexibility of this award-winning press, and we’re very pleased with the great success they have had with it.”

Gen 4 of the AccurioJet KM-1e is the latest generation of Konica Minolta's hallmark  KM-1 press, which debuted in 2016 and is widely considered the leader in commercial digital printing technology. This KM-1e successor includes a new generation of Konica Minolta inkjet heads, and also benefits from the company’s unique, patented technology that has overcome one of the fundamental challenges of inkjet printing – uncontrolled ink dot movement that reduces print quality and workable materials. The technology uniquely self-freezes ink drops upon contact with materials, resulting in superior color stability and consistency and excellent results with instantly dry and perfect prints.
