BR Printers Elevates Service Offering Through Technology, Innovation, Sustainability, and Entrepreneurial Approach
Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., celebrated a milestone for BR Printers, a leader in digital and book printing, as they reached more than 10 million impressions in one month on the Océ VarioPrint i300 inkjet press. Based in Silicon Valley, BR Printers has become one of the top providers of production print nationwide by maintaining an innovative, entrepreneurial mindset throughout the industry’s evolution.
Surpassing more than 10 million impressions in one month, the maximum outlined in the Océ VarioPrint i300 product specifications, is a significant achievement and demonstrates the high-volume capacity of which the Océ VarioPrint i-series is capable. BR Printers has put the Océ VarioPrint i300 to the test and the inkjet press has exceeded expectations and produced a strong ROI for the company.
BR Printers’ innovation combined with Canon Solutions America’s printing technology have contributed to the success of the company’s book printing business, in particular. Traditional offset printing in years past was very expensive and slow, and once a book was bound, content was unmovable and would quickly be out-of-date. Recognizing these concerns, BR Printers developed a technical process of clipping the binding of outdated editions, printing and inserting new content throughout, and then rebinding the edition. With this method, they are able to reduce time, cost, and waste. And, importantly, customers are now able to keep their books and materials current and relevant.
“Technology and innovation have revolutionized the publishing industry,” said Adam DeMaestri, CEO/President, BR Printers. “We do a lot of business in book publishing, and digital printing and rebinding have allowed us to provide more customization at a lower cost and turnaround time. Professors, for example, can now order only the chapters of a textbook they intent to teach, combine content from multiple textbooks, or include their own work into one edition. This also uses fewer resources.”
“Providing superior digital printing as quickly and cost-effectively as possible requires unique talent, a can-do attitude, and, of course, the right equipment,” continued Mr. DeMaestri. “The Océ VarioPrint i300 has helped take us to the next level, allowing us to offer our customers quality, reliability, and a wide variety of solutions for printing books, marketing and promotional materials, and much more. We couldn’t be happier with the Océ VarioPrint i300. The press is so fast and easy to operate that we’re able to run it at maximum capacity, allowing us to serve more customers. We’re also able to support our sustainability initiatives, which are core to our values. It’s a bit counterintuitive since our business is all about printing, but we place a huge priority on using recycled papers and on limiting our footprint as much possible.”
“Success in the printing industry is all about innovation, service, speed, and an entrepreneurial spirit,” said Francis McMahon, Executive VP of Canon Solutions America’s Production Print Solutions. “One of the best in the business, BR Printers recognizes the growing market for book printing and is capitalizing on innovation and cutting-edge technology, like the Océ VarioPrint i300, to provide more customers with custom printing solutions. We are impressed by how much volume they’ve moved to the i300 and we’re pleased that our presses are able to help them meet their customers’ needs and grow their business.”
