    Hardware or Process suggestions?

    We are running into some issues with bloated processing times on a very large and complex VDP run we do monthly. I am not sure if we can improve this on the hardware side, like with a MacPro that is pretty built up, or if the whole process is just set up to be on the slow side. I'll try to...

    Small Press Wash?

    We are looking for a good small press wash for our QM 46-2 presses. Something very low VOC / low odor / "greener" would be a bonus. Any good suggestions?

    How long to Archive?

    What is the industry "standard" (as if there are any...) for filing client art/digital assets before purging? 3 years? 5 years? Trying to streamline our archival area without causing an inconvenience for clients.

    Short Run Envelopes

    Does anyone have a good suggestion for a decent laser printer for addressing envelopes, mostly under 500 but occasionally up to 1000? Not really looking to spend what the Xante costs right now (really only need B&W) but need something that is reliable. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    B&W Volume pricing

    Interested to know approximately what folks from other areas are paying for click rates on high volume B&W - docutechs, etc. We seem to have a bunch of "heel nibblers" locally that are charging barely enough to even turn on our equipment on B&W copies. Just curious.
