Each day, this winning combination of technology and talent turns out finished print products that satisfy our customers and keep them coming back for more.

Here are just a few of the cutting-edge workhorses we use to produce your print jobs (Learn about us to find out about the people behind the machines):

Xerox iGen 150 Digital Press

Xerox iGen4 Digital PressThe latest of Xerox’s color printers, the iGen 150 delivers color consistency and image definition that rivals offset. Not to mention, it prints on a wide array of substrates, including mylar, polyester and magnetic materials (ask us about specific stocks), and it’s Richmond’s only 14.33 x 26″ sheet digital press. Ask about our new stocks, which include linen, felt, and 130# matte and stipple finish. By running non-toxic dry inks and reducing waste (by only printing what you need), the iGen 150 also helps minimize your carbon footprint.

The VS series also uses metallic and white inks to add impact to any graphic for attention-grabbing results that elevate your brand message.

Xerox Color 800 Press

Xerox Color 800 PressDo you want to get really creative? You want the Xerox Color 800 for your next print job. Enhance your creativity using clear dry ink to add a subtle, professional watermark or to draw attention to a headline or logo by building a 5th color to enhance your next print piece. This works great for tickets, adding a “do not duplicate” that is non-reproducible. Just ask us how to design your next piece to incorporate this visual effect to outshine your competition. In addition to the clear ink, the Xerox Color 800 delivers outstanding mid-tones, crisp text and excellent photo rendering while being environmentally friendly.
