The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading certification authority in sustainable printing, announced today that the fourth printing affiliate organization, Printing Industries Association Inc. of Southern California (PIASC), has joined the SGP community as a Resource Partner. SGP Resource Partners are non-profits, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and educational institutions engaged in promoting, teaching or researching in the areas of graphic arts and/or sustainability. Resource Partners are subject matter experts that assure the entire print community is empowered to advance sustainability in the printing industry supply chain. “Most of our members are concerned with our environment. SGP is more than a certification; it is a way of life. As a Resource Partner, PIASC can help our members who are looking into SGP certification,” said Lou Caron, PIASC president/CEO. “We also want to advocate this sustainable mission and promote certification to our members.”
Copresco is upgrading its digital fleet with a second Konica-Minolta 6136P press to meet increased production demands and guarantees for fast turnaround and on-time delivery.
The twin of the 6136P that was installed in late 2020 meets the same standards for Copresco’s high volume production and provides exceptional black & white print reproduction.
“The people at Konica-Minolta are amazed by Copresco’s demanding quality standards and commitment to maintain our Copies Overnight promise of producing 250,000 pages overnight for any client,” says President Steve Johnson.
“We have fine-tuned the new press to assure that our large-scale black & white printing matches Copresco’s award-winning color work.”
The press offers inline saddle stitching for up to 80-page booklets and can handle multiple paper stocks and weights. Precise tone controls are included to allow the creation of halftone curves on the fly. “This is a feature normally only found on full color presses, but required by Copresco for our unparalleled monochrome work,” Johnson added.
Copresco produces millions of pages of short-run publications, books, manuals and publications. Projects range from booklets, catalogs, handbooks, textbooks and technical materials to training aids, newsletters, calendars and cookbooks.
