OU Printing Adds Eight-color Press
University of Oklahoma Printing Services has gone where no in-plant has gone before. The 75-employee in-plant has installed an eight-color sheetfed press in its Norman, Okla., plant.
The press, which started running live jobs in mid March, is a 28x40˝ Heidelberg Speedmaster 102 perfector. The in-plant needed the press “because of the vast amount of four-color work we’re doing—and it’s almost all four-over-four,” said John Sarantakos, administrator of Printing and Mailing Services, in an interview with IPG. This color work includes magazines, brochures and posters. “We’ve got a big niche, and this is just going to open up new markets,” Sarantakos added.
This is just the latest advancement for this cutting-edge in-plant, which moved into a new 45,000-square-foot facility just three years ago. Watch for our cover story on University of Oklahoma Printing Services in the April issue of In-Plant Graphics.
