4-Print Step Up Short-Run Production

A Little About 4-Print

Established in 1982, 4-Print, with a long-standing reputation for high-quality litho work and outstanding customer service, decided to expand into the growing digital market. Having invested in a state-of-the-art digital press it immediately became apparent that the next day laminating service and cylinder cutting and creasing, currently used for litho, just wouldn’t be adequate for the faster production expectations of a digital print buyer. A faster and more efficient alternative needed to be sourced.

Following significant research 4-Print selected Vivid Laminating Technologies to supply two systems: A Matrix 530 Duplex Laminator with Omniflow deep pile feeder to cope with banner sheets of 700mm and a Magnum MC-35A for creasing and perforating.

"Both items made an instant impact on production. Same day laminating enabled us to meet deadlines never achievable before. The perforating and creasing for short run work perfectly and complemented our existing set up"


The Impact of Two Vivid Systems

Detailing the reasons 4-Print chose Vivid, Nigel said, “Whilst researching a suitable supplier Vivid was a name that kept coming up, they seemed to be well-respected with positive feedback from current users. Certainly, in our dealings with them, I can say that they are a pleasure to deal with. The installation was seamless with Vivid technicians on hand for questions in the early days”.

When asked what specifically they liked about the Vivid systems Fountain added “We were attracted to both pieces of equipment because of the fast set-up times and ease of use. The perforating and creasing for short-run work perfectly and complemented our existing setup. Our short-run production has gone up significantly, everything from business cards to folders and multi-page brochures”.
