Premier Graphics Adds Two Xeikon Digital Color Presses
Xeikon, Itasca, Ill., an innovator in digital color printing technology, announced today that Premier Graphics, a Stratford, Connecticut-based printing, mailing and marketing communications provider, has added two Xeikon digital color presses to boost its productivity and output of direct marketing pieces.
Premier, recognized as one of the fastest growing privately held companies by Inc. Magazine, has purchased and installed a Xeikon 8500, a high-performing and versatile press for many standard and non-standard document-printing formats. In addition, Premier has also purchased and installed a Xeikon 6000 press to grow its digital document printing capabilities.
“Our clients are increasing their need for high volume digital applications with faster turnarounds,” said Sean Huban, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Premier. “We chose the Xeikon presses because they offer a unique combination of quality, printing speed, consistent high-volume output, cost-effectiveness and an opportunity to increase our profitability in the digital color printing space.”
Huban added that Xeikon’s “à la carte” consumables pricing, rather than the click pricing of competitors, was another major advantage.
The Xeikon presses are roll-fed, which makes them ideal for Premier’s laminating and finishing operations. Moreover, the Xeikon presses give Premier significantly more versatility with substrates, including many synthetic substrates. Xeikon technology also enables printing on both sides of a substrate simultaneously.
Some of Premier’s major clients are healthcare organizations. The Xeikon presses will be used for items such as health insurance ID cards, benefit booklets, letters, brochures and other direct mail.
“To succeed as a marketing communications service provider today, you need technology that delivers unmatched print quality, productivity and speed—that’s what the Xeikon presses offer,” said Todd Blumsack, vice president of sales and marketing at Xeikon “As Premier Graphics responds to the changing market conditions, the Xeikon presses are more than up to the task. We are excited to be a part of their continued success.”
