High-Speed Inkjet Printing
The Kennickell group is proud to announce the newest addition to our pressroom. The KM-1e, 23”X 29” sheet fed digital inkjet press. What does this mean for our clients? In short: better quality, faster deliveries, and reduced costs. This is a truly revolutionary addition for the company and our clients will start to benefit right away. With digital inkjet comes:
- No more press checks, the proof we send you is the actual finished product
- Exceptional quality, inkjet exceeds anything we can produce on an offset press
- Fully variable data, we can change images and messages from one sheet to the next
- Reduced mailing costs, we can print and address mailers at the same time and at high speeds
- We can print and address 18,000 Direct Mail Letters per hour with no need to use pre-printed
- Our digital Inkjet press can print on Plastics, Styrene and Synthetics up to a 24 point thickness
- Perfect bound books are printed in page order, so no collating needed, saving time and money
- “Print on demand” now makes economic sense for even larger multipage documents
- Reduced energy and paper use: no plates, no make ready time and no wasted paper
The New “Print on Demand” Model
Perhaps you have a 48-page brochure and your annual usage is 20,000. Most companies would like to print in smaller quantities than a year’s supply. They want to do this so they don’t have financial resources unnecessarily tied up in inventory (boxes of brochures), and also because of the risk of a change being needed thus making what is left obsolete. However, due to the cost per piece, it was hard to justify doing smaller runs on a digital press. On most digital presses the cost per piece could easily be four to five times more expensive than the cost to run all at once on an offset press.
With inkjet presses, which run much faster than digital toner presses, you could decide to run a few thousand at a time of this brochure and keep the cost per piece around the same as offset. With an inkjet press we can run a thousand of these brochures before the make ready is complete on an offset press. No more concerns about future changes, and no more cash tied up in inventory.
You might be unfamiliar with inkjet technology, and we think there is a reason. Only a few hundred of these presses are installed in the country and with the investment being $1 million+ not every print provider can move to this technology. It is the future of printing, and we are happy to offer it to our customers.
