A Wider World for George FoxOctober 2013 By Bob Neubauer
The Canon iPF8300S isn’t the only thing new at University Print Services. The shop also just added a new Neopost DS-200 folder/inserter and a Neopost AS-950C addresser, which uses Memjet technology to offer full-bleed printing.
“Our demand for folding and inserting for bulk mailing was increasing,” Silver explains. The shop’s previous inserter was not up to the task, and the in-plant was losing business, he says. Financial Services, for example, recently had a 13,000-piece folding and inserting job that the in-plant was unable to handle.
“Their whole department had to spend a good portion of their day folding and inserting manually, because our [inserter] just wasn’t able to keep up” he notes. “This unit will be able to do all the things that the department needed us to do in a fraction of the time”—letting departments focus on their own jobs.
The new Neopost AS-950C addresser is a vast improvement over the previous “primitive” model, Silver says, which jammed repeatedly, forcing the in-plant to reprint ruined material.
“We needed something that was quicker, efficient and more reliable,” he says. And those three words, in essence, also sum up the advantages this newly upgraded in-plant is bringing to George Fox University.
