    Versant 180/ Fiery...how to get jobs in the "printed" queue.

    Whenever I print anything on the V180, it fails to go into the printed tab on fiery. This means if I need to reprint something it's hard to find & time-consuming. I have tried the usual fixes that you find on google. I'm on the latest version of Fiery. First world problem but still... :)...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    My versant 180 was recently installed & here are my thoughts. I totally regret purchasing this printer... Not only is the versant no better image quality than the 550, the alignment is no better despite SIQA. For such a pricetag you would think that it would be able to manage a 3mm margin...

    Relaible quality conscious print supplier required...

    Hi all, I have ditched my A2/A1 supplier as they kept providing me with posters that were not fit to pass on to my buyers & would not listen on the issues experienced. I am used to a supplier with a Mimaki cjv of some sort. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good UK business? I'm not...

    Really strange issue with my Xerox 550....

    Hi, Our Xerox 550 is putting a line across the centre of a specific (& popular) poster but ONLY in A3 size. A4 prints fine with no issue. The artwork is as it should be but the line is noticeably darker than it should be when printed. I've tried the following but I seem to of ruled out...

    Switching from a Xerox 550 to a C60 or Versant 80?

    Hi, I am somehow still in the printing industry & it has overtaken the other aspects of the business to the extent we are now solely focused on print & do rather well actually. After a 3 yr lease on a 560 which has been a huge learning curve, due to complaining about the 560 not holding...

    How are people finding old vintage poster artwork that's good enough to print?

    Hi, I'm looking for some help in finding old vintage poster artwork which is good enough to print. We find high definition JPEGS online but then when we turn it into a pdf & print it it is coming out slightly pixellated on a xerox 550. We've tried vectorizing the artwork online & also editing...

    Advice from anyone who's used a Xerox 550 please? (alignment help required)

    We're new to printing ourselves & expected a learning curve however every job we get has some issue. The first job we did had a ghost image in the print, we ended up sending it off to a trade printer & the job came back perfect so we have no idea what the issue was. We replaced a lot of bits to...

    Ghost images on our print job

    The pdf shows no issue, nor does the preview in fiery but we've noticed the actual print has a ghost image of a "roadmap in the sky" visible. Images attached. Initially we thought these looked great but once you notice this "sky roadmap" you can't unsee it really. In the design the dark...

    Newbie looking for guillotine advice please

    Hi all, Recently we have gotten our first xerox, happy with what it can do however we need a guillotine & we maybe didn't think as far ahead as we should of on that. We can't have anything too heavy, maybe 100kg & budget is a consideration so would prefer pre-owned. We'll be specializing in...

    Currently outsource print jobs, wanting to do more in house, baffled by salespeople.

    Hi everyone, Backstory: We have a leaflet distribution business in the UK & for a few years have supplied print which we get from a trade printer. We find we turn a fair amount of work away either due to turnaround or because our trade printer charges too much for us to be competitive. The...
