New Year, New News

Flexpress Digital welcomes 2014

We have a confession. Having the new year fall in the middle of the week provided a nice way to ease back into the routine after the holidays, but we are actually excited to begin the first “full” work week of 2014. We know, it sounds crazy – and maybe even a little masochistic – but the truth is, the latter part of 2013 saw us adding a number of new presses and services and we can’t wait to rev them up and go! The big news, of course, is that we now have three Xerox iGen digital presses, and the newest addition is the biggest and fastest one yet. It can handle a whopping 14.33” x 26” sheet size with a printable area of 14” x 25.5”. It runs a speedy 150 pages per minute, making our quick turnarounds even quicker. The print quality is incredible, too, as it delivers improved detail and sharper images with even better color. We’ll save all the specs and a few of the details for another blog devoted just to this press. Believe us, it’s pretty special. To complement our big presses we’ve also upgraded to a new 4-color envelope press. It makes … Continue reading

Employee Spotlight: David N.

Employee Spotlight: David N.

Once again it is time to shine the spotlight on one of our employees and let everyone get to know a little more about the great group we’ve got here at Flexpress. This month we visit with David, one of our longest-tenured employees. David has been with us for 19 of our 20 years in business! David was kind enough to share a moment with us as he went about his busy day of keeping our computer systems running smoothly – no small feat considering the high volume of projects we handle each day. What is your official title at Flexpress? Manager of support services What was the most unusual job you held before joining Flexpress? Picking coffee in Kenya. How would you describe your duties here? Serving internal and external customers. If you could switch jobs with one person at Flexpress for the day, who would it be? I would not want to switch but if I had to it would be Sales. People sometimes assume IT guys are computer geeks. Do you think of yourself in those terms? Not really, other than the fact that I have a 5 pc network, 4 laptops, 2 iPads, x2 wireless routers … Continue reading

Tee Time Gets Personal

custom printed golf ball packaging

  Spring officially arrives March 20th. Warm weather and green grass beckon. For many people this means one thing: it’s time to hit the links. As tempting as it might sound to sneak out from work to play a few rounds, at Flexpress we are content to stay busy printing custom golf ball boxes. Personalized packaging is a great attention grabber and these custom boxes are perfect for any number of golf events, from charity golf tournaments to wedding party gifts or even private labeled for country clubs. They also make great fundraising items for school teams. The custom printed box can hold three golf balls and provides ample space to display your message. We can supply the template, or set up the art for you if you’d rather be golfing. Don’t worry, we won’t tell your boss a thing. Although we can’t join you on the golf course for a “business meeting” we will be more than glad to discuss any questions you may have, just email us at sales@flexpress.com or call 972.980.2631 at your convenience.

Congratulations to all of the winners, with a special “shout-out” to Ardent Creative for winning Best of Show. We really enjoyed sharing a table and lots of laughs with members of your group. As Valet Sponsors we distributed gift bags at the end of the evening.

Employee Spotlight: Steve Romaine

As you may have gathered by some of our previous posts, we think we have a pretty good group of folks working for us at Flexpress. So we decided to take that pride in our employees one step further today and let you get to know one of them a little bit better. Many of you know Steve as our man about town and go-to guy for creative solutions for all things related to digital print and paper.

Paper Proofs – Keeping It Real

Paper Proofs – Keeping It Real

We care about quality and we’ve got the proof to show it. In our previous post we touched on some ways good file preparation can improve the final printed piece. This time let’s focus on something we do to ensure the best results – our proofing system. It’s simple, really. We supply proofs for approval on the actual stock your job will print on, printed on the actual press that will run it. Yes, we know many printers today rely on PDFs emailed to the customer for final approval. Although we will do this if the client requests it we are very firm believers in the “No Surprises” way of doing business. Sending PDFs for approval can have a number of drawbacks. If viewed on a monitor the color will not be accurate because the screen is RGB and monitors vary wildly in color depending on their settings. Printing the PDF out on a desktop laser printer for review is also a hit or miss proposition. The best way to know if the job will be output the way you want it is to see it in all its printed glory. An actual proof that you can hold in your … Continue reading
