Variable data leader BFC has kept to its commitment of providing clients with dynamic technology offerings and superior finished products by installing the Océ VarioPrint i300 color inkjet press.
The addition of the flagship inkjet press from Canon Solutions America makes for a total of 12 digital presses, providing the Illinois-based leader with the speed, quality, and cost-efficiency required by demanding customers.
“At BFC, almost 85 percent of what we do is driven by variable data printing,” said Lori Nelson, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for BFC. “As such, we needed technology that could not only keep up with that demanding workload but also produce dynamic and engaging personalized communications. The solution for us was the i300, which has allowed us to increase flexibility and expand our application mix for our client base.”
With such an emphasis on data management and variable data communications, BFC was equally interested in employing the white-sheet-in, finished-application-out workflow that is required by customers today – working to meet the increased demand for shorter run, fast turnaround output. The i300 supports the consolidation of sheetfed black-and-white, highlight color, and full-color digital workflows into one production printing system. This feature will help BFC take on more jobs, manage shorter runs, handle variable data projects with more ease, and offer a wider range of media options.
“Evolving and growing with the industry is part of the DNA here at BFC,” added Nelson. “When we looked into inkjet and the i300 we also wanted something that could allow us to produce more direct mail and full-color jobs while not compromising quality and/or efficiency. The i300 directly opens that up and will allow us to serve our partners better, while also entering into markets and prospects outside of our original space.”
