    HP Scitex 500/550/700 Cyan Overspray?

    Photos attached. Originally we thought the issue was static or head/nozzle related. We are having this same problem on all 3 of our hybrid HP UV presses (500/550/700). The only consistent variable would be the ink we are using. Would appreciate any advice on how to fix or narrow down the...

    Thinking about digital...where to start?

    Thanks for the info. It seems the 1175P is an HP head vs the Memjet head on the countertop units. I have seen samples from the counter top units directly from iJet and was not very impressed. Is the quality any better with the HP heads?

    Thinking about digital...where to start?

    I was thinking digital envelopes for <5M qty. Anything more and I think running offset and outsourcing to a converter may be more cost effective. Either way we are hoping to find a machine that is more "set it and forget it" as we would likely be running the digital presses with existing...

    Thinking about digital...where to start?

    I appreciate your advice. It makes plenty of sense. The reason I didn't list expected sheet volume is because we aren't quite sure where we will land after adding shorter runs (<500) to our Adding shorter run quantities to our lineup would likely bring in more orders as we have quite a few...

    We are a trade printer in Southern California looking to get our feet wet in digital printing. For now, we do have immediate needs for envelope printing (#10, #9, A2, A7, all the way up to 10x13 catalogs...with and without windows. Approximately 30,000 envelopes a month.). Ideally, I would love...

    Paper Shortage?

    Never heard of them but just left WCP a message. Thanks for the reference. Seriously wishing you all luck in the upcoming months. It is looking like things are getting worse before they get any better.

    Multiple RIPs within workflow

    It seems redundant to run files through two RIPs unless there is a specific reason for it. Does the second RIP have integrated imposition that is being used? If not, is Prinergy able to output directly to your digital devices? What are the specific reasons the digital and wide format...

    Moll Regal Training?

    PMed you. We are starting out with presentation folders with intention to expand into other capabilities. For now we are just looking for basic training on the machine - what each button does and how all the individual functions are controlled. We spent the last few days trying to figure it...

    Used Equipment - Moll Marathon vs Kluge Unifold?

    Thanks for your response. Unfortunately it does not. Is this something that can be purchased separately and added on for a reasonable price?

    Used Equipment - Moll Marathon vs Kluge Unifold?

    We are looking into purchasing our first folder gluer and are deciding between a 1999 Moll Marathon and 2000 Kluge Unifold. We will mainly be running standard 9pt ~ 16pt pocket folders. Hoping someone might have some insight as to why one might be a better choice than the other. Some thoughts...

    Inline Cutter for Mimaki UJV55-32?

    I was wondering if anyone out there knows if there is an inline cutting solution for the Mimaki UJV55-320. I remember seeing what looks like a plug in spot for a trimming mechanism (scissor pictogram) but can't seem to find anything online.

    I was wondering if you had any idea what your company paid for the W+D halm super jet. We are a small commercial shop in the US looking to purchase an envelope press and are trying to figure out if the super jet would make sense for us. Thanks in advance.

    gloss spot varnish HELP

    @turbotom1052 Though probably not feasible with our own equipment (graphtec plotter and an esko router cutter), I would be interested to see how precise a CAD plotter could get.

    Online Document Editor/Designer?

    Thanks for the suggestion - it looks like a full-fledged online design application. We are looking for something that just allows customer to manipulate size and positioning to make sure their artwork fits within the specs of their ordered size. This would eliminate a lot of back and forth with...

    Online Document Editor/Designer?

    Does anyone know of a software capable of this? Not sure where the attached screenshot is from, a customer of mine reached out asking if we would be able to implement something like this. When uploading an order on a web2print system, customers have the ability to do simple edits to fit artwork...
