Production Printing Doesn’t Have to Be a Production

Robert Covington / September 29, 2020
Stack of papers

Does your company routinely produce manuals or documentation, newsletters, pamphlets, or handouts? Depending on the volume or the advanced finishing requirements, this was often a task for the corner quick printshop. It didn’t make sense to put the wear and tear on the departmental office device, never mind sideline it from general office use while you fumbled with trying to get the big job out the door.

Of course, there’s also the amazing amount of time spent (nobody ever appreciates this) or even the cost. Why bother when you can just write a check (a big check) and make it someone else’s problem. And, well if your job requires tri-folding, saddle stitch booklets or maybe trimming it’s unlikely you have those capabilities “in-house.”

Elite Speed Eases High Volume Print Jobs

Toshiba’s new e-STUDIO1058 and 1208 at 105 & 120 PPM respectively can address all these needs at breakneck speed. Those 80-page saddle stitch manuals, trimmed on the face and printed on demand can be in the exit tray faster than you can call for a pick-up from the quick print guy.

Configurable with up to 13,500 sheets of paper and up to nine input sources, not counting the two, 200-sheet insert sources, no job is too big. And a duty cycle of up to 1,000,000 impressions and a toner yield of 120,000 screams “bring it on!”

A unique in-line folding unit offers users a variety of folding styles including trifold and Z-fold. Want to produce a manual for a ring binder? Need to incorporate tabs and want to print on the tab extensions? Not a problem. Programming complex jobs isn’t a problem either thanks to the large 15.4” front panel. And if you need a little help (we all do sometimes), the online manual is right there at your fingertips.

Simplify Repriting

And if your printing the job from your desktop, the printer driver includes a variety of time-saving features. Genuine Adobe PostScript 3 ensures what you see on the screen is what will be in your exit tray. Have an occasional need for reprints? The one terabyte hard disk drive has virtually boundless storage space. And jobs can be stored along with all the settings and even the quantity. So reprinting is as simple as selecting the job making any last-minute adjustments to the settings or the quantity if desired and pressing the green button.

This much production control has never before been so accessible or easy to use. The proven reliability expansive feature set, media range support and document finishing features that rival anything the quick print shops can offer mean you can bring these jobs in-house and get them done in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost. Yes, production printing doesn’t have to be a production anymore.
