Final touches over the Holidays mark the completion of a year-long overhaul here at Gandy Printers. New and upgraded equipment has made every area of our shop faster and more reliable. “My father built Gandy Printers up to be Tallahassee’s first color printer, and we are now Tallahassee’s most advanced, high quality color printer,” said Bernie Gandy III, as we broke for Christmas. “Our customers now get the turnaround and quality they expect with less wear and tear on our people. Our guys have the right tools to do their job.”
Most notable is the installation of Ryobi-MHI’s Series 920 5-color printing press, running LED cured inks. This system utilizes UV light and specially formulated, non-petroleum based inks to provide true instant drying. Built for our short and medium run work, this press sets up in a fraction of the time needed by the old machine, and runs four times faster. Direct linkage to the prepress computers provides inking presets, so we get up to color right away, and the quick drying inks provide a cleaner, powder-free sheet that can be handled immediately. All of this means less waste, and product that moves through the shop faster!
If you like YouTube, and want to know more this machine (a lot more) click HERE and the lovely lady from RMGT will tell you all about it. The wonderful part is that, unlike most sales pitches, everything she says is true.
We’ve made improvements in our digital printing room and bindery as well. If you’re a Gandy Printers customer, please accept our thanks for making these improvements possible. If you’ve not tried our shop yet, or in a while, we’d love to show you around. Make a New Year’s resolution to give us a call!
Thanks for a great 2016, and Best Wishes for the New Year from all of us at Gandy Printers.
