In-plant Graphics April 2010 edition


A Gold Medal in Printing

During the Winter Olympics in February, Simon Fraser University Document Solutions, in Burnaby, British Columbia, successfully produced a daily 12-page color newsletter detailing the progress of the German Olympics team. The 15-employee in-plant used its Xerox iGen3 to produce 1,600 newsletters a day for 16 days, binding them on its C.P. Bourg BME booklet maker. Digital files were sent from Germany using the in-plant’s WebCRD job submission system, from Rochester Software Associates.

A Scottish Success Story

ANY IN-PLANT manager who has attended the Association of College and University Printers (ACUP) conference in the past 12 years, has certainly heard the Scottish brogue of Andrew Scott ringing through the air.

Success with VDP campaigns is not guaranteed. You have to design with your results in mind, then track and measure them.

Dollars and Sense

ASK BOB Knaster about the University of Louisville's in-plant and he might tell you a story—about ham.

Drupa with a British Accent

WITH MORE than 1,000 exhibitors expected from more than 40 countries, IPEX 2010 is the British version of Drupa.

Establishing Budgeted Hourly Rates Boosts Competitiveness

To understand the true cost of a print job or communications campaign, in-plants need to account for salaries, equipment leases, power use and building rent, as well as materials like ink and paper.

Trade Show Woes

TIMES ARE tough for trade shows. Anyone who attended the first couple days of PRINT 09 in Chicago last fall will recall the deserted aisles and near-empty booths.

UNT: Ready for Anything

University of North Texas Print & Mail Services is one of the most quality-conscious in-plants in the country. Since 2004, the in-plant has won an impressive 38 In-Print awards, earning it great respect across the 36,000-student university.
