Original Impressions Installs First-of-Its-Kind Press in Florida, Positioning the Company as the Only Printer in the Southeast United States With This Advanced Inkjet Technology

The Investment Expands Company's Focus on Personalized Print Products and Transactional Printing

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2013) -   Original Impressions, LLC (OI), a full service marketing communications company, today announced that it has added Screen USA's latest continuous-feed inkjet printing technology -- the TruePress Jet520 -- to its arsenal of printing presses. The new cutting edge press is designed for production speeds of more than 1,600 pages per minute, making it one of the fastest, single-pass color inkjet printers in the industry. The installation of the press makes Original Impressions the only printer in the Southeast United States with the Screen TruePress Jet520.

"We are a solutions-based provider deeply rooted in technology offerings that interlace into our systems and add value to our clients," said Roland B. Garcia, Sr., founder and CEO of Original Impressions. "The Screen TruePress Jet520 is the most powerful client solution on the print market to date, as it is set to double the capacity produced by our other presses and provide us with a higher level of automation and efficiency."

"As the first commercial printing company in the Southeast United States to acquire and implement the TruePress Jet520 high speed inkjet press," said Eduardo Navarro, director of Marketing, Dainippon Screen USA, "Original Impressions is ready to provide previously unreachable options for their clients' marketing and communications needs."

High Efficiency Inkjet Printhead
The TruePress Jet520 features a roll-fed paper feeding system, which provides Original Impressions with the flexibility to handle high-speed, high-volume variable print runs while lowering the per unit cost. The dual-engine duplex printing arrangement makes way for the ability to place unique, personalized messages and full-color images on financial statements, direct mail, newspapers, catalogs, books and manuals at very competitive prices for small runs, or quantities up to several million pieces for larger runs.

Streamlined Production
The TruePress Jet520 features high-speed output of 420 feet per minute in full-color duplex. Screen's color management technology reduces the time required to adjust colors and ensures sharp text. Finished product is delivered in cut-to-size sheets, book blocks or offset stacks and an inline finishing system enables slitting, merging and dynamic perforating. The perfing unit applies horizontal, vertical or cross perforations wherever they are needed.

Authenticated Data
The press' digital front-end system allows for intensive data-driven printing by processing variable data and outputting it to the TruePress Jet520. The rapid data conversion performance ensures the output speed of the printing device. The TruePress Jet520 also provides a proactive, automated approach to identifying and mitigating quality issues while supporting the highest quality data security. Automatic inspection systems on both of the print engines detect any defects on the front and back of the paper at high speed. Errors automatically halt the printing process, and the operator is immediately alerted.

"The TruePress Jet520 satisfies the product and quality needs of our clients' broad and varied printing needs, including short print runs, fast turnarounds, high registration accuracy and use of variable data," said Garcia. "Equally as important is that the new press supports our environmental sustainability efforts. We have found that investments that help secure a better future for our environment pay for themselves very quickly, and this new press will enable us to continue in our efforts to decrease our Company's carbon footprint."
