Jag Printing (Edmonton, Alberta), specializing in state-of-the art offset, digital and wide-format printing, as well as promotional items, viewed the new coating system for the first time at Graph Expo last year, and purchased the technology through Canadian Duplo dealer and print-finishing leader, Sydney Stone (Mississauga and Vancouver). “The Duplo DDC810 is opening many doors in the short time we’ve had the machine,” said Gord Hentel, co-owner of Jag Printing. “Jag Printing looks forward to bringing new opportunities to the printers and print brokers we serve.” The Duplo DDC-810 includes many features that ensure easy operation and quality output – from its accurate camera image registration system, compact footprint, and reliable air suction feeder, to its quick and “painless” installation.

“When compared to other similar units on the market, the DDC-810 has a lower capital cost and a smaller footprint, and yet it still has comparable high quality output,” said Sydney Stone Sales Director Michael Steele. “This makes it attractive for companies looking to get started in the market for printed material that’s embellished and eye-catching. The DDC-810 can be paired with a near-line foiler to provide both spot UV and foil, to create the ultimate finished look.”

Steele added that the coater brings profitability back to print. “Print is just ink on paper, but by adding print embellishment, it becomes an experience that engages the senses and one that your customers can see and touch. The DDC-810 accelerates your margin growths by creating greater value for products such as business cards, postcards, invitations, direct mailers and much more.”
