    Ink Jet Envelope Printer

    Hi! I need your expertise please if you are using an ink jet envelope printer. I am afraid to get the wrong machine, so I have lots of questions. What machine are (or have) you used that you like the best or worse? Can you tell me about anything they claim it can do, but can't, or doesn't do...

    Double fold on a booklet

    Thank you all for your input. We tried adjusting everything on our folder and just couldn't make it work. Does anyone else bring such work home... LOL

    Double fold on a booklet

    80 lb. gloss text 11x17 Long grain, same as always, but one extra sheet of paper on this one I like that idea, unfortunately it won't be so simple - and they are a good client. However, I will let them know it's probably because of the additional sheet so we can all avoid that next time. They...

    Double fold on a booklet

    Hope you folks can tell us where we've gone wrong. We printed and finished 1,000 - 12 page booklets, 8.5" x 11" with 2 staples on our digital press. The client wants them folded down to 5.5" x 8.5". We've done this before but now we can't get them to fold without a bunch of wrinkles in the...

    Does the Duplo require special software when printing?

    Upgrading digital and other equipment

    I have 2 very old offset presses that need to retire, and there are no pressman in this area. Another shop and I have been looking for a long time. That's why we're going all digital now.

    Does the Duplo require special software when printing?

    Thanks! We really don't need a slitter - but what makes the software easier on the 618? It seems to me the 646 can handle a more than the 618.

    Upgrading to Ricoh 7200 series

    Thanks, that's a big help! My volume is a bit too high for the 5300. I was just looking into the Ricoh configurations, and frankly some of it is very confusing to me. :) Do you ever print magnetic substrates? I just realized both machines claim you can.

    Upgrading to Ricoh 7200 series

    Thanks Shawnd, but what are the other advantages to the e over the s? Do you know the price difference?

    Upgrading to Ricoh 7200 series

    Hi Shawnd, Why would you prefer a separate piece of equipment for the booklet maker? I will have 2 Ricohs so I will be able to continue to print.

De-Inking

Sustainable Printing Goes Far Beyond Using FSC Certified or Recycled Paper
This informative paper on deinking: demand, principles, problems and solutions also explains why printing technologies are not all equally compatible with paper recycling systems; and why just a small fraction of printed material in the paper can cause difficulties.
