The Problem

Pre Press Manager, Andy Gaulton, is responsible for ensuring the firm has the right technology to support its client demands and the business growth. “We are a 100% commercial business partner and our clients demand a very wide range of substrates. Until recently we were using a Konica Minolta 1060 press, provided and supported by Apogee which delivered very good quality and registration, much better than previous models. Demand for our digital print increased and as the volumes and the need for quicker turnarounds for jobs grew, we recognised it was time to upgrade.”

At Acorn Press everything we do is about quality, we have to maintain a focus on quality and the service we give to our clients. The experience our team has is a major differentiator for us and together with the digital technology Apogee provide and support we really are bringing colour to life.

The Solution

“I spent time with my Apogee Account Manager, James, and visited their Digital Print Evaluation Centre in Birmingham to see what options I had. Together with Technical Specialist Kate, we tested devices there and I was really impressed with the Konica Minolta 1085, the quality and colour consistency was another step up. At that time our volumes couldn’t justify such a large investment but quickly our volumes grew and our decision was made.”
