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.
Pazazz, the forward thinking printing company and leader in customer-focused printing innovation, recently unveiled its newest acquisition, the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000, the most advanced 64-inch wide large format solvent based printer purchased from Fuji Graphics.
"The demand for large format signage and banners has been growing," explains Warren Werbitt Founder and CEO of Pazazz. "The Epson GS6000 was the obvious solution for us. It has enabled us to react faster to our customers' needs and turn around high-quality, high-volume wide format jobs."
The Epson is one of the fastest and high-quality 8-colour solvent based printers on the market. The 64-inch wide roll-to-roll printer delivers a vast colour range, photographic image quality, and rock-solid reliability, all while using a solvent-based ink technology that's less harmful on the environment. The printer is uniquely engineered for the demands of high-production solvent printing and produces fine detail with a maximum resolution of 1440x1440 dpi.
According to Tony Karg, Sr. Director of Business Development & Marketing, Fujifilm Canada Inc., Graphic Systems Division, "The Epson GS6000 is a flexible printing platform to help Pazazz print on a broad range of substrates needed to satisfy their customer's varied printing requirements. It is a perfect compliment to their existing printing technologies to broaden their offering to their customers."
From design to pre-press to final output, Pazazz focuses on providing consistent and repeatable end-to-end colour. Since precise colour matches are an essential part of branding, we have been especially pleased with the solvent-based Epson UltraChrome® GS ink that achieves an extremely wide colour gamut, resulting in signs that feature entirely new degrees of colour fidelity and accuracy that are otherwise unattainable with any other solvent technologies.
"The Epson 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 Werbitt. "We can confidently deliver outstanding image quality; utilize maximum speed, advanced colour options and unsurpassed reliability with the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000."
