The world of digital printing is changing and it is changing fast. The speed with which hardware and software are evolving makes it very challenging to stay up to date as a printer. Even if you have bought the latest and greatest in printing technology, it’s only a matter of time before something new comes along. That is why at Xeikon we spend a lot of time to make sure all our new technology is as fully compatible as possible with previous installments. We want printers to get as much out of their presses as possible by allowing them to add new innovations to existing machines.
Obviously your digital printing press should be your most valuable asset. But what are some other good long-term investments? Evidently, that depends on they type of jobs you want to do. Generally speaking, it is a good idea to invest a good deal in post press finishing processes, such as die-cutting and varnishing. Also don’t forget that you will need your print jobs reach customers in time. So make sure to think about a good shipping strategy as well.
