Old boy, now the new boy

Hi all, Im Alan, worked as a service engineer in film and CTP photochemical developers, enviromental systems and conveyors for nearly 20 years, in and around the London area, until being made redundant 2 years back. Tried going solo, but the digital age is catching me up.
Now working for a dealer/service agent, again with developers, but also a new field for me, LFP Epson printers, including the G&J iCTP and various RIPs. Its been a bit of a hard learning curve for me over the last few weeks, as the last engineer left after two weeks of me starting, but Im getting there.
Hoping learn something and give something back in the future.
All the best...

Hi, My name is Steve and I've been doing light production printing for almost 10 years for 1-800-Dentist. We've used the Xerox DC250 for about 5 of those years. Now we are looking to upgrade, so I find myself here looking to learn a few things about different printers from real people, not sales reps (half of which don't truly know how their machines actually run).
Currently looking at the Xerox 560, KM C6000.

I guys... I develop online design software and application.. which I sell to printing companies and setup on their websites. My latest creations is an online book designer >> Flash Book Designer v.2011 | Children's book designer | Photo book printing | Book design software | Design your own book . I also do custom solutions. I have done this for 11 years. Before that I ran a small clothing company where we also printed on garment.


Screenshot1 of my latest application:


Screenshot2 of my latest application:


We also include full setup on your server and a shopping cart with payment integration.
Once a users has designed a book 'Admin' (the print company) gets an email with all details including a link to a ready to print PDF file with all the books pages inside.

Let me know if you have any questions about online design applications.

Best Regards/
Harbo

Hey guys,just found this place by accident. My name is Tim and i have been in the Offset biz for 30 years.
'Bout the only type of job I've ever had. I had 2 years of Graphic Arts in H.S in the late 1970's and got my 1st printing job 2 years after H.S. I was running 1 and 2 color 1250 Multi's and shooting negs.
5 years later the 40" bug bit me and i was a helper then 2ed Pressman then on to Lead Pressman.
Moved on to later become a Plant mgr. for a small company and then on Press Room Mgr over both shifts at a larger Co.
We had to file for bankruptcy due to the economy and i was unemployed for two years.
I was lucky enough to get a job with a brand new start up Company,Greeting Express,as Production Mgr. We do custom photo books,custom greeting cards,Large banners,stretched canvas prints and many other types of Digital Printing.
I am really liking this digital thing!! Glad to have found this place.

He Denis,
Welcome to printPlanet.
Always nice to meet a specialist.
I take the freedom to ask you the following thing: What are Encapsulite V50 tl?
I ask this because we need to build a yellow room for a CtP device but are new in this kind of tech.
I am from the Netherlands, so calling is not an option (for this kind of stupid questions!):confused:

Color Optimized?

Ink
by Noel Ward, Editor@Large
Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
