Masterpiece Graphix (St. Louis, MO), a leading manufacturer of digital printing media, has announced that more of its products have been tested and confirmed for use on Ricoh and Konica Minolta digital printing presses. Masterpiece Graphix .010 Synthetic Paper and .010 Matte White PVC substrates are now tested and confirmed for use on Konica Minolta Bizhub Press high-speed digital colour production printers. Both are now included in the Konica Minolta Substrate Throughput Assurance Guide. In addition, Masterpiece Graphix .015 Matte/Matte White PVC, LuXe 12 pt. Soft Touch White, and .012 Synthetic Paper substrates are now certified for use on the RicohH Pro C7100 Series and Rocoh’s C9100 Series Cutsheet Production Printers. These substrates will be included in the next update of the Ricoh Paper Library. Masterpiece added that the products provide printers with an economical and durable alternative to paper and polyester.
“Commercial printers with dry toner presses often assume that the only plastic they can run through their press is polyester, which is expensive and over-engineered for most applications,” said Charity Brueggemann, Supply Chain and Business Manager at Masterpiece. “Masterpiece Graphix offers a wide range of cost-effective substrates that are designed to perform well at the high printing temperatures of dry toner equipment. Not only do the materials run well, the lower cost helps printers win more jobs and repeat business.”
Masterpiece Graphix offers traditional and specialty materials for HP Indigo, Xerox, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Kodak, MGI, and Canon commercial digital presses – and is North America’s first and only HP-authorized treatment facility for HP Indigo. The company also provides toll-coating services for a variety of applications.
