    Xerox square fold trimmer. Any good?

    It has many faults. I had two 700i with them, now two 3100. For a 20 sheet booklet we can only send 25 sets, have to clear the fore edge trimmings box, lots of faults caused by a trimming piece getting up in the cutter area, always ends up wasting 5 sheets every time. I would have preferred...

    Ijetcolor NXT Supplies

    We used to have the Mach 6 from Neopost (now Quadient), switched to the iJet Classic, wish we could have waited for the NXT. Anyway, we have continued to purchase our supplies from Quadient, at a cheaper cost than iJet, ink and printhead work fine.

    Ink jet envelope printer

    We have a mach 6 from Neopost for about 5 years, service wasn't that great for how much it cost, over $2000. We moved on to an iJet Classic, it was around $14k for a really similar machine, but the service contract for us was $990 all service is remote, they have videos and have talked us...

    Advice on B&W Low Cost laser for Carbonless Paper Printing

    I have used a Riso in the past, registration was terrible, lines for filling out forms not even close. We used a Xerox 4127 for years for both carbonless and regular black and white printing and had lost of jams. Switch to a dedicated Xerox D95 in 2019, now have 1,499,308 clicks on it, I think...

    Upgrading digital and other equipment

    We used to have to reprint stuff cut wrong, especially business cards, usually the stack didn't get pushed back in the guillotine cutter and then the whole stack was messed up. We use it for bleed trimming, greeting cards, postcards (bleed) and tons of business cards. With your preset jobs...

    Upgrading digital and other equipment

    Local County Government so we run a lot of envelopes and NCR paper. We used to share printing NCR on a Xerox 4127 and have had lots of issues. We changed to a dedicated machine for NCR, a xerox D95, bought a CPO machine and have had it for over two years, only had a handful of service calls...

    Paste Binding

    I run the Print Shop for the County here, our detention center has a problem with updates on the rule book, constantly changes. They do one full copy (using the FastBack20) for each unit, so about 10. At booking they hand out a condensed version hitting the important stuff that is an 8 1/2 x...

    Envelope Printing

    I've had the Risco Priport way in the past, Okidata C9650 with the Straight Shooter feeder, neopost AS950, now run all smaller than 9 x 12 on the iJet Classic I think that's what the call it. We got a Xerox 3100 and started printing all larger on it, great quality. The iJet works well on the...

    Duplo 646 and crack n peel

    Just received the Duplo 646 last week, great machine. We do several jobs with crack n peel labels and I wonder if we could use the Duplo. Wondering if we will get the sticky mess that we get using the guillotine? Usually only 20-100 sheets at a time. Thanks for any input.

    Anyone else use numbering software like Number Press or the like

    We use Number Press, we are all digital, works great, really beats numbering one at a time, also great if you have NCR to print.

    Duplo 150CR question

    Looking to purchase a Duplo 150CR, and get away with buying the inline finishers. But we do an odd booklet and I wonder if someone who owns on can clarify it will work. It is 8 1/2 x 11 letter 4 sheets folded but not stapled, is booklets without staples doable? Thanks for any input.

    UV Coating question

    Recently we saw a VividCoater XDC530 from Graphics Whizard, thought it was a cool option that we don't have, and it would be a plus for covers on books. I run/work in the in-plant for my County government, and there are 2 other employees, and space is tight, but a move may be in the horizon...

    Synthetic Stock and Xerox 700

    I run Synaps 12 x 18 10ml through the bypass set on coated 257-300. Have printed 500 simple "Vote Here" signs for Election. Nothing heavy or with alot of graphics, but the prints are 'clean'.

    Suppplies for Neopost AS-950C

    Anyone have a supplier for the ink for this machine? Purchased a set in September for $685, now the dealer wants $1360, I checked online at Neopost and they want $990. So much for being cheaper supplies than the Okidata C9650 I had.
