Fireball Studio · Paul Yavarone & Catherine ...

We often say it, and we always mean it. Seeing so many different printing companies, that within their domains are successful is simply great. This time, we visit Fireball Studio in an area of Philadelphia, where the owner, Paul Yararone, tells us that drugs are sold just a few blocks away. However, he also tells about how streets close down traffic to celebrate local art festivals, where both his business and life partner are active. Customers are artists, schools, non-profits, and normal business customers. Despite the company's size, investments range from self-developed Apple Filemaker software to a new Canon iX-3200 Inkjet printer. Motivated staff, even a company turtle, is part of what makes the company stand out, great, and an inspiration to visit. To manage a small business with so many orders, Fireball depends on software. Filemaker for the front end, Enfocus Switch for data routing, and our Canadian friends from Ultimate TechnoGraphics deliver the secret sauce, pushing files and orders to the printer. It is a super company, producing super products and a super setup with motivated staff and owners that kick buts to grow their business - and I for sure hope to be back, expecting further integrations and utilization of Impostrip even more - of course :-) Thanks - wonderful company you have!

Super Satisfied Canon iX3200 customer · Mor...

It doesn't happen SO often that INKISH makes films in our backyard, but it's so nice when it happens. The first INKISH film was ALSO from Lasertryk in Denmark, but many things have changed. Back then, Xerox iGens were the workhorses of the time - now you see HP Indigo, the Canon iX3200, and, of course, the two Heidelberg XL106 - and a tonne of binding and finishing equipment. In this film, Production Manager Morten Jespersen explains how the IX3200 fits into the production and when they choose to work with either of the technologies available. Great to be back, and it is always fun to see how companies develop with a combination of focused people and the right investments! Here you can see the first INKISH film ever - also from Lasertryk :-)

Marrs - the Eagle Has Landed · John Grigsby...

Marrs is a super interesting company, producing luxury packaging. Besides the Eagle Systems Cold Foiler and the two Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 presses, Marrs is equipped with everything needed to produce beautiful boxes. They even produce all the dies inhouse - and to give you an idea of how much they produce, they have two people employed to only produce die forms - and seeing how the dies are prepared for the die-cutting machines is super nice. The family-owned company is VERY pleased with their second investment in the Eagle foiling system, and it's being used almost all the time. Super interesting to meet the next generation (cousins) John Brigsby and Andrew Marrs - and, of course, also talking to Ricardo Lopez, who's worked in offset for years - after giving up his dream of being a professional football player many years ago. A truly nice company with a convincing family spirit.

The digital transformation in Corrugated + on...

In this online interview, Mark Dempsey from HP and editor Morten B. Reitoft chatted about the digital transformation in the corrugated industry. Dempsey explains that the business case moving to digital from flexo is easier than moving from offset to digital in the folding carton segment. We also talk about the C550, which today, February 14th, 2024, celebrates its first year in the market - a warm congratulations to HP for the achievement. Enjoy!

Digital Corrugated High Speed High Quality Pr...

A year ago - on February 14th, 2023, the HP PageWide C550 was launched, and just a few months later, the first installation in North America was a reality with Sutherland Packaging in Andover. In this INKISH episode, you learn about the considerations and the result of the investment - and from the perspective of being a family-owned company that until this investment primarily focused on brown boxes, this step is major. Sutherland sees entirely new opportunities and an opportunity to convert brown-box customers into multi-colored boxes. However, the C550 is also used to produce Point-of-Sales displays, a lucrative business for Sutherland - but listen and see. Super nice people and super nice company - it was fun being there - thank you, Jake and Manny!

Heidelberg, Ricoh et Duplo France se sont associés et sont présents sur un joli stand au salon C!Print. C'est une première pour Heidelberg ici à Lyon et c'est donc une bonne idée de parler de certains des nouveaux produits et services qu'ils proposent au marché français. Nous rencontrons Pierre Duneufgermain et apprenons qu'Heidelberg mise entièrement sur la technologie cloud et est prête à rationaliser les flux de production à partir d'un environnement Prinect et ouverte aux connexions depuis n'importe quel système moderne que le client pourrait utiliser, via une API ou d'autres connexions. ____ Heidelberg, Ricoh, and Duplo France teamed up and are present at a nice booth at the C!Print show.

#LearnWithUs MIS · arifiQ · Carina Karlsso...

arifiQ started as an estimation tool in times when estimation took a while. Their claim was a quotation in less than a minute, and not only has arifiQ developed into a full MIS system, but calculations are now instant and offer an interesting approach to pricing, for example, an InDesign plug-in enabling the designers to get quotes based on the design, format, number of pages directly in InDesign - and even ordering directly as well. arifiQ can also make an estimate based on an uploaded PDF, where arifiQ takes the size and number of pages and matches this to a product - and return an instant price. The ideas are solidly based on in-depth knowledge of being printers themselves. The Swedish company started with domain knowledge and added programming to the solution - now globally available, also integrated into HP PrintOS and many other OEM workflow solutions. Enjoy the presentation! LinkedIn Profiles: Eva Rosén https://www.linkedin.com/in/eva-ros%C3%A9n-69375520/ Carina Karlsson https://www.linkedin.com/in/carina-karlsson/

#LearnWithUs MIS · CERM · Fran Boey & Steff...

CERM is by far one of the most thought-after MIS/ERP solutions among label converters - and as we have visited Converters who work with CERM, there is a reasonable reason for the choice. The demos are excellent, the software solves the challenges Converters have and then supports the product, and now the integration to Microsoft Power BI is giving customers options like never before. In this webinar, CERM has decided to focus on the BI functions and the 18 standard reporting tools provided in the optional solution. Fran Boey has a background in the BI-World, and guides us smoothly through how reports can be created, giving customers THE overview!

Leland has experience working with multiple ERP/MIS solutions, and during the presentation, it feels that Durst Lift is 'home' and, therefore, an answer that he can easily vouch for.

Lift customers can use Lift for all types of job, but no question that Lift is developed with the product that Durst deliver in mind! LinkedIn Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lelandmorgan/

#thankaprinter

Ladies and Gentleman… #thankaprinter Please use the hashtag when sharing. Print Long and Prosper! And when the virus came, people turned to their leaders and their community and said: “We need to keep our families and our loved ones safe. We need to know how. We need somebody willing to get up at dawn in the cold, in the rain, in the blistering heat and open their doors so we may keep ours closed. Somebody who will work tirelessly, with ink-stained clothes and calloused hands to fire up the presses, to feed the paper, to fold and score and distribute hope.” So they called a Printer. And when supplies ran low, when our heath care heroes on the front-lines desperately needed protection, Printers forged facemasks, face shields and partitions and answered the call of their nations to help their citizens heal. They answered by reinventing and retooling and constructing 3D printed parts for respirators, breathing life into patients and hospitals and communities suffocating without . They answered the call to transform children and parents into students and teachers, and kitchen tables into classrooms … and cathedrals. They made the signs, the clings and the decals to arm their communities in the fight to stay open and distanced and educated. They sent the mail that delivered checks that kept food on the table and lights overhead, and protected packaged goods on the shelves in storerooms and backrooms and pantries. They worked in split shifts to keep us safe from harm while struggling to keep their doors open, not once asking for anything in return. When we look back, when we have distanced ourselves from this moment in time and are reunited with each other, let’s not forget to remember who stood, fearless, at the gate, and said this community, this family, this business won’t go down on my watch. Let us not forget to Thank a Printer. Written by Deborah Corn, Print Media Centr. Produced by INKISH and PrintMediaCentr. Video editing by Jan Majnik · INKISH

At the HP #PrintAhead event, visitors were invited for cake and champagne to celebrate a 1-billion pages milestone for the new Advantage T-2200 inkjet printer - a milestone - for sure, but 'only' part of a bigger story about how the digital transformation is changing the printing landscape forever. With Brilliant Ink, faster machines, and better drying, Senior Global Market Development Manager Marc Johnson sees HP as a front runner - and obviously both happy and proud about the milestones HP and its customers have achieved - very nice interview, enjoy!

2nd Show Report LabelExpo - Brussels, Belgium

After a slow start, LabelExpo took off, and for the people we spoke to, everything was great! The number of visitors, along with the quality, was two significant important comments. The media people we met in the Press Office were positive, though a few commented that there weren't that many new technological breakthroughs. I am not sure if that is 100% correct since shows don't only show products, but also represent trends. One of the more important trends at LabelExpo is the adaption of IoT and Industry 4.0. For many printers, this is most likely words with little resemblance, and we will, of course, tell more about what this is and how this can influence you as a printer.
