Julian Marsh, Director Commercial Printing, District Photo, says, “It is of vital importance that each product we deliver as part of our web-to-print service is of the upmost quality and fits the requirements of the customer. The Scodix digital enhancement press allows us to add the luxurious embellishments needed to make our customers feel that they’re producing something special. This level of enhancement is not something we were able to offer before with our online service. Personalisation is an increasingly popular trend and one we know our customers love.”

Hera VP Ricardo Garcia notes, “They [Barcadi] admired our four-color press processes, but the dimensional, Scodix finishing system brought them fully onboard.

Corporate President Darren Kenning says, “Scodix has allowed Kenning Outsource Group to leap beyond its competition. Even better, it allows our clients to leap beyond their competition, a big deal for designers, a way to enhance print in a way that hasn’t been available before. The Scodix process becomes an imaging dream come true – you immediately see and feel the difference, it’s stunning.”

Matt Giandonato, Digital Print Supervisor at Tukaiz, talks to Cary Sherburne about their long history with Indigo presses and what they are able to do better with the 5600 versus the 5500. They also discuss working with HP partners like Scodix and other new developments at the company.
For Tukaiz, Scodix Metallic offers so much in potential future revenues. Simply stated, it’s quicker, cheaper, multiple color metallic printing with an expectation of much faster turnaround. The finished product is as good as traditional accepted methods, but faster and you can get more creative with it.
From simple projects, such as business cards that allow customers to be much more impressive, to packaging which demands high effect for cosmetic and candy affections, customers are quickly appreciating Scodix Metallic.
Using the Indigo workflow, Scodix Metallic takes the Scodix output to another level of eye-catching that greatly enhances the promotional value of packaging, direct mail or any business communication offering. In fact, the AccuLink business cards are with this new effect.
The Scodix S74 Digital Press joins a line-up of digital equipment including a Xerox iGen4 and HP Indigo at Cherrypie, providing a cutting-edge digital service. The company handles a range of work but specializes in one-off pieces such as personalized albums or hard-backed books that have a unique appeal. Cherrypie New Business Director Evgeny Timoshchenko said, “We wanted to buy the Scodix press as it provides unique functionalities and features no other press can provide.”

When I heard Scodix was launching a new press at drupa, I had to come over to see it. They have provided us with great service from the very start and the Scodix S74 will hit the spot with some of the ideas we have for it. It will also integrate straight into our Pageflex and Storefront operating systems.
