OKI light production printing


The graphic communications industry is steadily evolving with fewer but more sophisticated players addressing changing market expectations. 

Driving this shift is an increasing demand for smaller print runs, variable content and high output quality. 

At the same time, customers want quick results at competitive prices. 

To increase margins and flexibility, the graphic arts sector needs to find new ways to reduce production costs, streamline processes and create high-value applications. 

Key challenges

  • Businesses are wasting valuable budget on expensive, traditional printing methods. Print service providers frequently turn away potential revenue because short run printing does not generate enough profit and specialised printing processes often have to be outsourced e.g. personalised designs using dark, transparent or transfer media
  • Marketing departments and communication agencies seek service providers that can handle variable data printing(VDP) to help make the most of opportunities by leveraging customer data, to improve customer communications and maximise return on marketing investment (ROMI)
  • Designers and creative teams deliver fantastic, high-impact designs but the final result lacks impact. Existing printers do not come close to reproducing the colour or quality of a final design in creative mock-ups, delaying sign-off and making proofing a challenge
  • Businesses often require print runs of envelopes for direct and personalised marketing campaigns however, producing profitable short print runs is often difficult within an existing commercial printing environment
