bizhub job wins Seriti top digital printing award

| 29 January 2013

Seriti Printing, a Konica Minolta South Africa client, has been given the top award for digital printing by Printing SA, formerly known as the Printing Industries Federation of South Africa (PIFSA). The digital print job that garnered the award was printed on a Konica Minolta South Africa bizhub PRO C6500 digital production device.

According to Avril Swart, digital printing manager at Seriti Printing, the Pretoria-based production house has owned the machine for five years and is especially impressed by the consistent quality that it delivers.

“We are proud of our digital award, which now hangs alongside our litho awards. Moreover though, the bizhub PRO C6500 has made a huge impact on the flexibility of our business, the cost of a job, and the superb and reliable output of each digital print run.

“For this reason, we have invested in Konica Minolta’s next generation flagship model, the bizhub PRESS C8000, which offers high image quality and definition that is nearly equal to offset printers,” says Swart.

Seriti Printing specialises in the printing of annual reports, posters, magazines, brochures and advertising material for a range of clients such as government, academic, banking and numerous private businesses. Swart highlights that it has become important for the printing house to be able to offer these clients a high-quality digital offering in addition to its litho services. “Time, cost and job quality are the three most significant factors for our clients. The bizhub presses allow us to address all these requirements. That is, our clients are assured of a fast turnaround time at a low cost and at the highest possible quality,” he says.

“Of course, the fact that Konica Minolta South Africa is a sound business partner is critical too. Having the best machine with no after-sales training or service renders the device ineffective. We’d most certainly recommend the company and its service – which is instant and constant -  and are really looking forward to what the bizhub PRESS C8000 will deliver, both for us and our clients.”
