SOHO Business Solutions (Markham, Ontario) has taken its digital and finishing capabilities to an entirely new level with the addition of an AccurioPress C2070, an AccurioPress 6136, and a bizhub Press C1100 from Konica Minolta Canada ­– as well as a 3-sided-trim booklet maker. From its humble beginnings in a garage in 2007, SOHO Business Solutions now occupies a state-of-the-art, 7,000-square-foot facility. Its services include digital and offset printing, an in-house bindery, UV coating, vehicle wraps and much more. The company also provides fulfillment services for various university and college magazines, including shipping and distribution. SOHO has also grown over the years by acquiring Stellar Print Solutions in 2015 and Royal Printing House in 2019, eventually tripling its staff.

The AccurioPress C2070 is a high-speed digital press for advanced digital colour printing that adds power, performance and simplicity to any production print application. Features include up to 71 pages per minute (print and copy) output, real-time image density and colour density control, and digital colour imaging “that rivals offset printers at a fraction of the cost,” said the OEM.

With a print speed of 136 pages per minute, the AccurioPress 6136 Digital Press provides high-quality black & white output at high volumes. The “workhorse” printer has a duty cycle of over 3 million impressions, and real-time automated image density and registration adjustments that maintain image stability over long press runs.

With an ultra-fast 100-page-per-minute output speed in “brilliant” colour, the bizhub Press C1100 Digital Press raises the bar in digital productivity, saves space on production floors, and saves time and labour costs with simple operation and powerful inline finishing capabilities.
