A new digital press is coming to SLB Printing soon capable of printing on a heavy weight, 17.5 pt card stock and can also add spot gloss coating to all paper grades we run. The new press, a Xerox X1000, is also faster than our current duo of Versant V80P presses so we’ll be churning out those same day printing orders on a wider range of paper very soon. Spot gloss is something we get calls for almost every day and up until now, we’ve had to turn these jobs down. We’ll be thrilled to be able to say YES to these specialty jobs after the new press is installed. The ability to print short runs on a heavier paper up to 350 GSM is also a daily request. The new X1000 is going to be a welcome addition for all our clients.
Target date for the installation will coincide with the expansion of our store in October 2015. Yes, here we grow again!
And what’s so great about this machine you ask? Look Books, Brochures, Postcards, Catalogs, Labels, Newsletters, Flyers and a whole lot more printed at almost twice the speed as before!
Making a decision on a new press isn’t easy. Especially since technology is still changing so quickly in the printing industry. The X1000 is a press that has been around for several years now and is a proven performer capable of printing in excess of 1.75 million impressions a month. We choose this press simply because of our clients ongoing requests for same day and next day printing. As SLB Printing becomes better known, world wide, for printing miracles, the requests for those miracles keeps on growing every month. Adding a 3rd digital press to the store is going to help immediately with our ability to help our clients get the printing products they need with blazing turn around speeds. When so many people say SLB Printing is the best printer in Los Angeles, it’s easy to understand why the need for another digital press was bound to happen. Finding the right one, with even higher quality than our Versant X90Ps, faster speed, longer duty cycles for improved up time led us to choose the X1000.
