Non digitally certified envelopes will run fine but crinkle a little bit: so the thicker plastic of the 'digitally certified' ones prevents any crinkling at all. I've printed thousands of envelopes without a jam. Smallest one is #8 and they most often than not duplex fine at that (though duplexing envelopes is not officially supported).
In Canada getting the analyst to profile your stocks and getting you a spectro via a colour management packages is one thing no one ever asked for a refund
And its not expensive, gives you the best image quality possible, extensive colour training and support.
If you run large pdf files, you know, in the gigs, or that have 65000 vdp pages, that kind of thing, then an external fiery that also gives you an Impose and Colour Profiler Suite is the way to go.
The performance package gives you an inline xrite spectro to calibrate and profile, but at the cost of more paper.
Overall its extremely reliable an consistent. With Xerox when they say you can run 350gsm, they mean it: all day long if you need to at full quality.
That speed gage on your car that maxes out is designed to be achieved without any heart palpitations on a Versant with all specs and then some.
That is partly why its more expensive: its more reliable, less downtime, great quality and generally its a workhorse.
Now I work for Xerox, and have been training people on the high-end for decades and its quite nice to be able to write this confidently
Ask Xerox to get you in touch with Versant owners. Get a demo and bring a mountain of paper and put it through its paces.
The proof is in the pudding, my friend.
Im in the market to be upgrading our kit over the next few weeks. Weve ran on xerox 550 and oki far too long and the cpc is now too high vs outsourcing.
Ive been looking at a v180
But not too sure what to spec it out at
Performance package, is it work the extra cash?
Will it print envelopes with and without windows
Anything else i should be looking at to kit it out with or alternatives?
Thanks in advance
