Excell Color Graphics Installs Xerox Color 800 Press and FUJIFILM Acuity Advance HS UV Flatbed Press to Compete in Short-run Printing Market

VALHALLA, N.Y., February 15, 2010 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced that commercial printer Excell Color Graphics of Fort Wayne, Ind., has installed digital production and wide format solutions as part of its strategy to remain competitive since the turn of the economy, which has spurred the demand for short-run printing. In October 2010, the printer installed a Xerox Color 800 Press to accommodate quick turnaround, short-run jobs that are replacing traditional, high-volume, offset work orders. To compete even more aggressively, Excell Color Graphics has also entered the wide format printing space with the December 2010 installation of a FUJIIFLM Acuity Advance HS UV flatbed press, enabling the traditionally offset printer to produce posters and signage for customers.
“The shift in the economy prompted us to start implementing digital solutions into our workflow to supplement the loss of offset volume,” said Tom Parrot, president, Excell Color Graphics. “Currently, 20 percent of our volume is printed digitally, but 40 percent of the jobs that come through the shop is now printed digitally.”
In 2007, Excell Color Graphics began to explore how digital printing could impact business with the installation of a Xerox DocuColor® 5000 Digital Press, the first piece of digital equipment the company had ever purchased. It was an entry level way for the offset printer to experiment with digital. The Xerox Color 800 Press has now replaced the Xerox 5000 system and has integrated seamlessly into the shop’s workflow because of its 2,400 x 2,400 dpi, offset-like image quality. It has streamlined production with production speeds of up to 80 pages per minute and has also given Excell Color Graphics more flexibility since the device can print on thicker sheets, perform duplex printing and offers a clear ink option that promotes new and creative techniques for unique, eye-catching output that particularly appeals to the company’s advertising agency clientele. The device’s primary function in the shop is to fulfill orders for short-run marketing collateral including post cards and proposals as well as four-color printed envelopes that would normally be printed offset and would need to then be converted.
