iPrintec Reinvents with Iridesse Production Press
AT A GLANCE
Company: Image Printec (M) Sdn Bhd
Industry Sector: Quick Print
Size: 30 employees
Established in 1987, iPrintec @ Image Printec (M) Sdn Bhd, is a Malaysia-based registered leading printing company. Its core business is to undertake various kinds of printing assignments.
“Throughout the years, we have consistently upgraded our workforce and equipment to provide our customers with high-quality services and products. We work with designers & advertising firms, individuals, collaborators, and fellow printers on projects that demand a quick turnaround and close attention to detail. We are happy to consult with you and work on getting your project into print quickly and as economically as possible,” said Mr. Tan Tiam Teck, Managing Director, Image Printec (M) Sdn Bhd.
Image Printec (M) Sdn Bhd needed to transform themselves into a more profitable business after being in the highly competitive print-for-pay market for more than two decades. To innovate their existing business, they ventured into providing fulfilment services with quick turnaround with design and consultancy services to capture a new business opportunity.
In order to reinvent their business, iPrintec required a solution that facilitates quick turnaround to meet demanding timelines. The solution needed to handle a wide variety of media substrates, and be able to meet the growing demand for specialty colour printing. The company also needed a solution that enables them to provide one-stop digital printing fulfilment to customers, which are now increasingly mobile and instant.
The Gamechanging Solution
With the Iridesse Production Press (Model-6C-Gold&Silver), iPrintec can now enhance their customers' experience by allowing more specialty colours printing including metallic. While the conventional offset printing requires mixing silver ink to make metallic ink, this new press realizes simultaneous printing of several metallic colours during a single printing process.
The standard colour library equipped in the press contains Pantone+Metallic and Pantone+Premium Metallic commonly used in the printing industry. By utilizing these colour swatches, the operator can reproduce colours similar to Pantone metallic colours on printing materials by simply designating the colour codes.
Until recently, brands owners, creative agencies and print service providers have been limited by printing technology and often having to compromise between colours, print quality, material types or print finishes. With the wide array of Iridesse specialty dry inks, notably the white and texture, customers can now enjoy prints not only on texture media but rendering beautifully on coloured substrates.
Benefits Beyond Specialty Colours
Armed with the Iridesse Production Press, iPrintec now has the ability to capture new business opportunity with better profitability with print enhancement capability. Customer engagement and confidence has also been increased with the better print quality and productivity.
iPrintec is now able to produce more jobs at a shorter time and consistently meet customer deadlines. The company can provide professional advice and valuable consultancy to a customer on document reproduction. The latest state of the art technology enables the designer team to provide professional advice and valuable consultancy services to customers.
With the investment, iPrintec found a strategic business partner with Fuji Xerox Malaysia.
“Outstanding products and superior after sales services bring a unique value proposition for long term business partnership to create more business opportunity with better profitability,” said Mr Tan.
Fuji Xerox Malaysia offers an outstanding range of products which offer a new business opportunity to meet customer demand. Mr Tan additionally applauded the superior after-sales services with strong technical and Pre- & Post-Sales support which brings confidence level for future business partnership. Fuji Xerox Malaysia offered iPrintec a unique value proposition for long term business partnership as knowledge sharing on application to target the right market.
“iPrintec will look forward to work with all levels of people to bring prints to life. This will enable better customer engagement and broaden creativity with high impact print embellishment to further enhance document reproduction on demand, “ said Mr Tan.
