Wright Printing Takes the Lead as First US Install of FUJIFILM’S New J Press 750S
Wright Printing recently installed Fujifilm’s (Booth 8220) third generation J Press 750S, the most productive production inkjet platform available.
“We’ve experienced double-digit growth over the years,” says Mark Wright, owner, Wright Printing. “It’s due to the impressive line-up of J Press digital inkjet technology we have acquired. Inkjet is the way now, and into the future. If you’re going to be making an investment, I cannot understand why you’d be investing in offset.”
Joining two existing J Press 720S presses within the expansive Wright Printing facility in Omaha, Neb., its J Press 750S is the first U.S. install, and has rapidly evolved into a standout solution.
The need for speed
“The speed and size increases on the J Press 750S are fantastic,” says Andy Cowles, digital production manager, Wright Printing. “We already know how great the J Press 720S presses are, and the J Press 750S expands options for us as we anticipate run lengths upwards of 5,000 sheets. Increased run lengths result in outputting higher volumes of work, with uptime near 97% — it’s amazing.”
Throughout his 50 years of industry experience, Wright knows color consistency for brand owners is critical.
“Color variation is not an issue with the J Press,” says Wright. “With our J Press line-up, we operate three shifts, five days a week, all-process color, on 128 different stocks. The colors do not vary — color consistency with the J Press is second to none; it’s the truth. When clients look at the output, they say ‘oh that’s offset’ and I tell them, ‘no it’s not!’”
Mardra Sikora, CEO, Wright Printing comments, “When clients tell us ‘this is a critical color and we need a better solution,’ with the J Press we can guarantee the output will look the same, start to finish, job to job; it’s a tremendous selling point. We are experiencing new business and repeat business as a direct result of our three J Press digital inkjet solutions.”
Continues Cowles, “We can run the same job on all three presses, and match them today, tomorrow, and in the future. The first sheet out is the last sheet out, because we take that sheet and we set it right on top of the load, and we send it with the job, because it’s perfect.”
