While there are still some months to 25 December, a print shop in Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal, has been working long hours to faithfully deliver colourful boxes for Christmas pudding to a charity organisation that will raise funds.

Veron Gounden, owner of Colortone Digital Design & Print, said the order for hundreds of cake boxes was processed in good time to another satisfied customer, thanks to the speed and versatility of a new state-of-the-art high technology Konica Minolta print machine that he recently purchased.
Veron who is a qualified graphic designer bought Colortone almost three years ago. He replaced the existing old machines with new ones and operated six days a week. He also moved to digital printing well ahead of his competitors.
However, before long he realised he was still in need of a truly versatile machine that could do two-sided banner printing and professional inline finishing; perform with highest productivity; make real-time automated quality adjustments; and still produce excellent print quality.
When Veron was shown the AccurioPress C4080 series from Konica Minolta with features that would enable him to expand his business into new markets and develop new revenue streams, he immediately signed on the dotted line.
And no sooner was the AccurioPress C4080 delivered and commissioned, then orders for print jobs began coming thick and fast through the door.
“There was a time when my customers were mainly from the Lower Highway area – Westville and Pinetown.
“Through word-of-mouth about the quality of printing and shortest turnaround time offered by the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C4080 in our print shop, we began also drawing customers from the Upper Highway Area which includes Kloof, Hillcrest, Assagay, Botha's Hill, Forest Hills, Gillitts, Waterfall and Winston Park.
“I am also getting business from Durban as well as Pietermaritzburg which is 80 kilometres away. The new machine has done wonders for my business and I am already seriously contemplating getting a second one.
