Impressions Printing of St. Thomas, Ont. recently became the first Canadian printer to install a Kodak Nexfinity digital press. Impressions Printing works with clients across the country to provide a full line of commercial printing, offering in-house offset, wide-format, fulfillment and digital printing services.

Within a few weeks of the installation, Impression Printing noted a 40 per cent increase in speed, compared to its previous digital press. Nexfinity was designed for “maximum throughput with production speeds up to 152 A4 pages per minute.” Impressions Printing also found immediate improvements from the press’ extended sheet size, heavy substrate capability and Fifth Imaging Unit solutions which allow the quick and easy addition of specialty inks, a range of surface finishes and long-sheet formats.

“We were searching for a solution that could help us further differentiate on speed and quality, and Nexfinity has allowed us to increase our output volume while enhancing customer satisfaction,” said Cory Stuart, president of Impressions Printing. “In the short time we’ve been using our Kodak Nexfinity press, it’s proven to be an incredibly versatile machine that delivers a powerful combination of image quality, consistency, and low running costs.”

Nexfinity is designed with Dynamic Imaging Technology, “a patented Kodak technology for digital printing that allows printers to produce crisp text, hard lines, soft skin tones and beautiful skies on the same page, consistently throughout the run.” Featuring a new high resolution and multi-bit LED writing system, the press produces a wide variety of applications, including direct mail, commercial print, publishing and packaging. The press seamlessly integrates into workflow and finishing solutions, making it optimized for a printer’s production workflow.
