University of Regina Installs NexPress
The University of Regina has installed a Kodak NexPress SE2500 toner press. The machine was installed in the university’s Printing Services shop, which is a separate ancillary unit that not only services faculty and students, but also outside business clients.
“With the Kodak NexPress, we can now handle our own larger print jobs, which will improve our productivity because of the increased flexibility of our operations,” said Judy Peace, the Manager of the Printing Services shop. “We are now able to do jobs that we couldn’t do in the past, and that means we have a lot more control over our workflow, for the ultimate benefit of our customers.”
The University installed the SE2500 over the summer, but is in the process of upgrading to the NexPress SX platform, which offers smaller particle toner and, according to Peace, would be “even more desirable than an offset press.”
“We just did an anniversary book for the university,” said Peace. “It was a short run of about 200 books, but 64 full-colour pages. We were able to print this in-house using the [NexPress] and we achieved offset-print quality, digitally. It also saved the university a lot of money—the outside quote was about $3,000 more than it cost us. It was perfect.”
