  • Tharstern solutions automate printer’s imposition workflow

    District Photo—a 70-year-old business that operates 4 production facilities across the US—implemented Tharstern’s MIS to expand their services from B2B to include a new B2C—commercial side, in order to balance seasonality and demand fluctuations.

    District Photo expected to receive a lot of small orders from their new commercial business, and implemented Tharstern’s MIS to eliminate human touch-points. Thanks to Tharstern’s high level of automation, District Photo has been able to handle hundreds of unique orders a day despite only having a small commercial administration & pre-press team. This is due in large part to Tharstern’s Layout Library tool, launched in the Summer 2018.

    Layout Library allows printers to teach their MIS to automatically select imposition layouts, normally chosen manually. Layout Library was added because District Photo doesn’t always produce the same product in the same way, or on the same equipment. Several factors influence their workflow including run length, urgency, special finishes, etc. Layout Library allows District Photo to impose intelligently, increasing profitability and maximizing efficiency.

    Tharstern is hosting a Layout Library webinar at 11 am EST on Wednesday April 3rd.
