The Objectives

  • The top priority was exceptional colour quality
  • The ability to print really good four colour solids
  • Productive and reliable devices

The Challenges

  • Clarkeprint print lots of solid colours and have had issues with banding in the past
  • Previous quality issues led to lots of wastage with poor prints being discarded
  • Busy spells, working 24-hours to meet deadlines

Xerox Iridesse Press

Gary Franklin, Director describes the difference the Xerox® Iridesse™ Presses have made.  “For me productivity is key, as I’m the guy on the shop floor, responsible for completing jobs on time. They [the Iridesse™ Presses] have come as a welcome relief and made a significant difference. Not a subtle difference but a massive difference. Last year we had to work 24 hours around the clock to achieve certain deadlines and this year we didn’t have to put on any night shifts, and we finished two weeks early.”

Why Xeretec?

“The support we’ve received from Xeretec has been great. Nothing is too much trouble and the training we’ve received from their analysts has been first class, it has really helped us push the boundaries of the device and get the best out of the speciality colours.”  Gary Franklin, Director, Clarkeprint
