OU Cuts to the Chase
To meet the demand for contour cutting of large- (and small-) format prints, University of Oklahoma Printing, Mailing & Document Services just installed a new Colex Sharpcut automated flatbed cutter. Showing off the Sharpcut’s handiwork are David Prince (left), with a cutout of OU’s iconic Seed Sower, and Kris Johnson, holding Sooner Jim, the in-plant’s first official job on the Sharpcut. Thanks to this new capability, the shop expects to bring in numerous cutting jobs such as posters, boxes, puzzles, decals, labels, displays, custom shapes, signs, cardboard tables, coasters and more.
“We researched many products and are excited about the enhanced capabilities we can offer customers," remarks Sherri Isbell, assistant director. "The University of Oklahoma always strives to be a cutting-edge technology leader throughout our campuses. We have marketed our poster, award and novelty business extensively and feel this device will catapult us to an entirely new level."
