    Is there something I'm missing???

    I've got a live one, a customer created a 26 page (never mind that the page count wont work for saddle stitching) and gave it to me in one photoshop document with 26 layers (with sub-layers).

    Ok this is coming down the the wire! We need advice. We have made a decision to upgrade our Xerox 770 to either a Versant 80 or a Ricoh C7100X. They are both quoting the same price for the same options, ie booklet maker, de curler, feed drawers. They are matching each other's click charges. The...

    Questions about the Versant 80

    Xerox has offered us one heck of a deal on a Versant 80 . . . we are currently running a 770 and are pleased with it. The new arrangement would apparently cost us about 120 dollars US more a month. Any comments? Also I seem to recall the versant family being able to run a 660 mm sheet through...
