Copresco has installed a General Binding Corporation G2 punch to expand its binding capabilities for digitally printed books, manuals and publications. “Combined with our Konica Minolta press, the GBC G2 provides professionally printed, punched and ready-to-bind documents—in one easy step,” notes Copresco President Steve Johnson. With the new punch, along with two existing James Burn AlphaDoc punches, Copresco now has the option of preprint, inline, or post press punching for maximum flexibility and faster turnaround of loose-leaf, plastic coil and double loop wire bound books. “This assures that even with our growing production volumes Copresco will honor its Copies Overnight commitments,” Johnson says.
Modern Litho today announces long-time General Manager, Skip Bray has been named President of Modern Litho-St. Louis as of July 1, 2022.
Under Bray’s leadership, Modern Litho-St. Louis, a division of Modern Litho-Print Co., has grown in every measure of the word in revenue, employees, facility space and significant expansion of product and service offerings to its customers. This growth is a result of both organic customer attraction/retention and strategic acquisitions of several St. Louis Metro based printing companies including Midtown Printing (2013), Trio Printing (2018) and Mulligan Printing (2020).
“We’re proud of the leadership and dedication Skip has shown within our company and the industry. He exemplifies our company values, cares deeply about his employees and his community and inspires those around him,” commented Darrell Moore, President/CEO of Modern Litho-Print Co.
As a fifth-generation printing industry veteran, Bray began working at the French Bray Printing Company in Baltimore, MD at the age of 16. After moving to the St. Louis area to be closer to family, he continued his printing career in sales and transitioned into management at Midtown Printing, which was acquired by Modern Litho in 2013. He was appointed as General Manager in 2016. He currently serves as the President of Print Media Association – St. Louis, an organization he has been a part of for many years.
