PT 335SCC Multi:

AlphaGraphics Bannockburn and AlphaGraphics Northbrook

I’ve been a Graphic Whizard customer now for almost ten years and this is the third piece of equipment that I own from them – and it most likely won’t be the last.  We had been looking off and on at different slitting solutions for about a year.  What appealed to us the most about the Graphic Whizard PT335SCC was that it offered more features within the price range than the competition and with some of the competitors you needed to spend a lot more money to get the features (such as strike perfing).  The ability to have an all-in-one solution has given us maximum flexibility to look at our production workflow and use the best solution for the job – whether it is business cards, covers, or even scoring a 25.5” tri-fold brochure.  I think if you take a close look at the feature set of the Graphic Whizard and compare it to the other solutions you will see what I saw – no other solution offered the complete out-of-the-box solution (no add-ons like computers, additional perfing heads, carts, etc.) like they do.  In addition, I can speak from experience when I say they stand behind their products and have no problem recommending them as a company as well.

Fort Orange Press - Albany, NY

Typically, a job such as the one pictured (11″x17″ 4 page program, quantity of 2500) would have either been letterpress scored, and then folded on our MBO, or would have been set up on the MBO with an 8 page unit and scored and folded inline. The quality of the rotary score is fine for 100# text, but we prefer a true score for cover weight. The quality of the Creasemaster is as good, or better, than letterpress, and we were able to crease and score that job in just over 1 hour, with a 3 sheet setup. Compared to a letterpress makeready, letterpress run time, folder makeready and folder running time, the Creasemaster and IKF have been a true profit center. And, the skill set required to run the two is minimal compared to the other options listed above, which require journeyman. Not the case with our Graphic Whizard equipment.

Custom Printing Inc - Nampa, Idaho

CM Plus+ When we decided to get a digital press we were concerned about what we were going to do in bindery for finishing. So we started looking for a creaser to finish our digital work. Graphic Wizard was the one that we purchased based on the quality and reliability that their machines offer. We have had our Creasemaster now for 2 years and would be lost without it. It not only does the creasing for all of our digital work but for our offset work as well. It is the one machine that we use everyday in our bindery. Since we use it so much, we are now thinking about purchasing another machine to use in our copy center. Great job on a machine that is easy to set-up and operator friendly enough that we can use it in our quick print center where I have less skilled labor.

Halcraft Printers

In November of 2009 at Graphics Canada in Toronto Halcraft Printers made the decision to go big in the area of UV Coating, being one of the first to offer UV coating to the commercial print market east of Quebec. Brian and Wayne Arkelian (owners of Halcraft Printing) introduced UV coating to their clients in the summer of 2009 with the entry level Graphic Whizard Micro UV coater. The intentions were to upgrade within 6 months to a year. They did just that. With the 29.5” x 25” sheet size of the XDC-750A, Halcraft has the ability to run sheets directly from their Heidelberg SM-74 5 color, or digital sizes from their Xerox 5000. Bill Todd of Graphic Supplies and Equipment did a great job working with Halcraft to determine their needs and help them choose the machine that would be the best fit to continue to grow their UV coating business.

T&S Office Essentials - Kingston, NS

XDC-530 Micro – The XDC-530 Micro coater has been a great addition to our digital print field. It’s an easy upsell, and given the low cost of operation, and cleanup, it’s very easy to run. We use ours about every other day. I was impressed with the results on various materials we have run, from scored book covers, to full coverage dark business cards. The coating evens out the colors, and virtually eliminates streaks left by digital printing. I’m very glad we made this step, as it will enhance our customers image on all their projects, and give us an invaluable upper hand on our competitors.

FinishMaster Series:

AlphaGraphics - Bannockburn, IL

Graphic Whizard has been a great company to partner with. They have the experience and the technology to help me increase my bindery offerings. In 2008, I purchased/leased a GW 8000. From working with their preferred distributor to get the machine installed to getting the training we need to run the equipment, we have found Graphic Whizard and their partners to be easy to deal with and really care about our business and providing the right solution to meet our needs. In addition, since we have installed the GW 8000, we have seen an increase in perfing and scoring which has shown us the investment will continue to pay for itself.
