Solo Printing Opens First Digital Print Department With Xerox Products and Solutions

When Miami-based Solo Printing was ready to open a new digital printing department, it turned to Xerox and Xerox reseller Fujifilm for its first digital press, workflow software and sales training. Solo has equipped the new department with a Xerox Color 1000i Pressand software from Xerox, XMPie and Fujifilm, with an aim to extend its record of six straight years of double-digit growth.

“Based on what our current customers were asking for and industry trends toward shorter runs and more targeted, personalized and variable communications, we wanted to be more involved in digital printing,” said Robert Hernandez, vice president of sales, Solo Printing. “We chose Xerox because it’s a leader in this segment, and we’re trying to get as close as possible to the quality we get on offset. The only press we saw come close was the Xerox Color 1000i Press. It also had the most robust componentry.”

Solo Printing serves the retail, travel, communications, electronics and education industries with brochures, catalogs, publications, self-mailers and general commercial printing products, as well as mailing, kitting and warehousing services. Until now, printing in the Solo plant was exclusively on web and sheet-fed offset presses, though some digital printing work was outsourced.

Along with the Color 1000i, Solo purchased Xerox FreeFlow® Corefor automated workflow, XMPie uDirect® Classic for personalized communications, the Fujifilm ColorPath DLP for cloud-based color management and a Plockmatic Pro 35 Booklet Maker for inline finishing. Xerox will also provide business development services in sales training, and Fujifilm will continue to help Solo Printing achieve consistent color and G7 Certification across all its presses. Hernandez said Solo Printing’s vision includes adding more digital printing equipment within one or two years.

Solo installed its new press in a recently acquired and refurbished building, which opened in October 2016 and is adjacent to the company’s plant.

“Solo Printing is a top-100 North American printer with a strong growth record and a great vision for building its digital printing business,” said Stephen Butler, president, Xerox U.S. Graphic Communications Operations. “We are committed to helping Solo deliver top digital printing services that will get their customers excited and help Solo extend its fabulous record of growth.”
