Canon Solutions America Helps Gasch Printing Move into the Inkjet Age

Family owned and operated print provider adds the Océ ColorStream 3900Z monochrome press

MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that Gasch Printing, an industry-leading digital book printer, has entered the inkjet age with the installation of the Océ ColorStream 3900Z monochrome inkjet press. Gasch Printing's evolution from offset to digital toner, and now inkjet, marks a significant ascension as the company's book publishing footprint continues to expand across the nation.

Founded over 30 years ago, Gasch Printing, along with seemingly every major offset print provider, underwent major transitions as the industry rapidly evolved in the early aughts. Understanding the need to adapt to these dramatic changes, the company's forward-thinking leadership team moved from an offset environment to a fully digital toner operation a little over 10 years ago. Since then, the move has led to over 10 years of sustained growth, and ultimately ushered in a new era for the Maryland-based company and its industry-leading book publishing services.

Known for providing its vast customer base with exceptional quality and turnaround time, Gasch Printing has expanded its offerings to include perfect bound books, case bound books, saddle stitched booklets, catalogs, and an array of other specialized digital book printing projects. With its steadfast approach and dedication to becoming an all-encompassing book publishing and printing provider, the company recognized the apparent need to take its technology even further and adapt to the emergence of inkjet. With the installation of the Océ ColorStream 3900Z inkjet press, Gasch Printing has effectively, and seamlessly, bridged the gap between offset and digital and paved the way for another 10 years of consecutive growth. 

"We knew the time was coming for us to make a major transition; it was just a matter of understanding which technology would best fit our needs as a company that specializes in book printing," said Doug Gasch, owner and president of Gasch Printing. "We are a company that has always invested in next-generation technology and automation, and this latest installation cements our commitment to not only staying relevant in the industry, but also pushing it forward."

Since installing the dynamic and high-volume inkjet press, the company has experienced success in a number of different areas. Production speeds have doubled, a 50% capacity and volume increase was experienced almost immediately, and, perhaps most importantly, Gasch Printing noted unprecedented levels of high print quality.  

"Our main focus was – and will continue to be – being able to handle and treat all of our customers in a way that's both professional and supportive," added Gasch. "Our publishing, printing, and even variable data and personalization offerings have all been hugely enhanced with our new inkjet press. The quality and reliability we get from the ColorStream allows us to simultaneously offer updated solutions to existing customers while tapping into new markets and customers with strategies to help them recognize new business opportunities and understand the possibilities with inkjet technologies."

The highly versatile Océ ColorStream 3900Z inkjet printer offers productivity and flexibility for high-speed color and monochrome production of transaction, TransPromo, direct mail, book, and manual applications. Helping digital print leaders like Gasch Printing grow their portfolio of offerings, the Océ ColorStream inkjet series' production and media flexibility contributes to a future-proof system that simplifies the transition of applications and business models to more sophisticated documents with variable personalization and smarter communication in both monochrome and color.

"The Océ ColorStream technology is streamlining dynamic communication and providing valued Canon Solutions America customers like Gasch Printing with efficient flexibility for sustained production," said Mal Baboyian, executive vice president, Production Print Solutions/Large Format Solutions, Canon Solutions America. "This leading inkjet technology serves myriad different markets and is positioned to push the boundaries of inkjet into even more print environments. We look forward to working with Gasch Printing as they grow their business – with advanced inkjet technologies."

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring.
