Pazazz, the forward thinking printing company and leader in customer-focused printing innovation, today unveiled its newest acquisition, the Xerox iGen4™ press with enhanced G7 Print Master colour management tools and in-line output profiling and advanced variable capabilities - ready to deliver digital print with unparalleled colour quality.
The iGen4 press is one of the most productive and high-quality cut-sheet digital colour presses in the printing industry, with superior quality images and consistent colour from the first print to the last. The Pazazz digital department plans to use the iGen4 press to produce direct marketing pieces such as full-colour booklets, brochures, manuals and postcards with variable data and image options.
Achieving colour quality and consistency remains one of the biggest challenges facing the printing industry, but with the new integrated and automated tools available with the iGen4 press the guesswork is completely removed, resulting in professional quality colour to present the desired output the first time and every time.
The Xerox iGen4 includes an in-line Spectrophotometer (ILS). Integrated profile making with G7 colour management standards ensures accurate colours and maximum gamut utilization. Combined with spot colour management, profile making allows for dynamic Pantone colour adjustments to ensure corporate colours are always a match. The Xerox iGen4 is also equipped with XMPie® software capable of producing complete personalized direct marketing campaigns with variable data and images.
"The iGen4 press is yet another example of our commitment to offer our clients the highest standards in print to ensure the best quality available for our clients,” explains Warren Werbitt Founder and CEO at Pazazz. “We can confidently deliver outstanding image quality; utilize maximum speed, advanced variable options and unsurpassed reliability with the iGen4 press.”
Pazazz, the the forward thinking and environmentally conscious printing company recently printed the Cascades Rolland Opaque50 and Rolland ST50 sample books. These books were printed on the KBA 56" UV six-colour press on 50% post-consumer fibre paper, a transformation that benefits nature.
UV printing is a more environmentally friendly process then conventional printing. UV inks and coatings are completely solid and friendlier to the environment since they are free from VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) and HAP's (Hazardous Airborne Particles). UV inks are fully recyclable. The UV printing process requires similar or lower electrical power than Infrared/Thermal Air systems. It yields less ink and wash-up waste than conventional print since there isn't any waste from incidental drying. As well, difficult print jobs that typically require two passes on the press are now achievable on the KBA 56" six-colour UV press in one pass, utilizing half the energy.
Because being good is never enough, Cascades is improving the environmental attributes of its 30% family by increasing the post-consumer content to 50%. Rolland Opaque50, Rolland Hitech50 and Rolland ST50 are now made with 50% post-consumer and 50% virgin FSC certified fiber. This change creates a new environmental alternative for digital and commercial printing of high quality documents.
As the production of recycled paper consumes less water and energy and generates less waste and air emissions than its virgin counterpart, the overall environmental attributes are naturally enhanced with the increased recycled content.
Cascades Fine Papers Group Inc. is a Canadian leader in environmental and security fine papers manufacturing, with a century-long reputation for craftsmanship. Green by nature, the Group produces fine papers that contain 50% and 100% post-consumer fibers and works on an ongoing basis to reduce our ecological footprint on the planet. By buying recycled-content paper, you help us save more than 1.2 million trees each year.
