Jet Press 720S: Kingfisher Press

UK commercial printer Kingfisher Press produces a huge range of high quality print products across multiple sectors. It has now purchased a Fujifilm Jet Press 720S to significantly boost its ability to take on quality short-run work.

"We’ve been looking closely at the advances in digital printing technology for some time, but until now we hadn’t seen a platform that we felt offered quality at a level that justified the cost of investment. That’s all changed with the Jet Press 720S, which we think is about to blow away its closest competitors."

A new revenue stream

“While visiting drupa 2016, we decided that we had three choices as to how to proceed: we could buy nothing and continue as we were, running the risk that our competitors would start to leave us behind; we could invest in a new litho press, which would offer us a slight improvement in speed and quality; or we could invest in a Jet Press 720S and open up a whole new revenue stream.”

Short run work & personalisation

“With the Jet Press we’ll be able to pitch for new customers we couldn’t have approached in the past, customers who are requesting more short run work as they don’t want their money tied up in stock, and who like the flexibility of being able to make modifications and amends between runs. Then there’s the benefit of personalisation, another major string to our bow that the Jet Press will provide.”

Service & support

“Fujifilm has been fantastic through the whole process buying process. We’ve been customers of theirs for 15 years now with XMF workflow and CTP systems and their service has always been excellent. We’re delighted that we’re now inkjet partners of theirs as well.”
