Montreal, Canada, September 26th, 2022, Ultimate TechnoGraphics, leader in imposition and finishing automation solutions, is proud to work with Marketing Kitchen, a direct marketing production company specializing in direct mail and fulfillment, to maximize their throughput and save on paper waste through advanced B2-format digital inkjet print optimization and automation.
B2 Sheet-Size Optimization
According to Audrey Jamieson, president of Marketing Kitchen, one of their biggest challenges today is getting paper as the “supply chain is a huge issue right now”. Having invested in a Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 for its 23”x29” sheet-size, they needed to quickly find a way to maximize every inch of these B2 sheets. “Ultimate Impostrip® was the solution and it’s been fantastic, adds Jamieson. Without Ultimate Impostrip®, we wouldn’t be anywhere near the efficiencies that the KM-1 and the 23”x29” sheet-size delivers us. It’s a game changer.”
Ultimate Impostrip® automated dutch cut impositions allow them to substantially save on paper and clicks. “Without Ultimate Impostrip®, we would end up with probably 20-30% higher volumes of sheets having to go through and wastage. You just have to think about the sustainability Ultimate Impostrip® provides us: less paper through, less clicks. The ROI of Ultimate Impostrip® is a no brainer.”, reveals Marketing Kitchen President.
Digital Inkjet Printing Automation
On the other hand, automation is a big factor for this Canadian-based printer when investing into new technology and evaluating day-to-day operations. “We want to do more with less. The more we can use automation, the better.” By using Ultimate Impostrip® hot folders automation, they are now “able to just upload the files and it’s fully automated right to the KM-1. We couldn’t do that without Ultimate Impostrip®.”
To conclude, Audrey Jamieson highlights the importance of workflow automation for futureproofing print businesses like hers: “The more we can automate, the more throughput we can have through the facility, the stronger we are going to be as a player in the Canadian market. Ultimate will play a big part in that because it’s providing us the automation we are looking for.”
