A leading charity for UK service veterans has taken delivery of the Neopost AS-970C Mach 5 envelope printer. The AS-970C Mach 5 can overprint up to 7,500 personalised envelopes per hour with high-quality colour ink-jet output.
The simple software-controlled operation provides clear, concise prompts for options such as versatile address settings, graphics or barcode printing and allows fast changes to messages or layout. In operation the AS-970C Mach 5 provides full bleed (to the envelope edge) printing using Memjet™ technology to give highly professional results.
Production Manager for the charity comments, “I have a background in printing and the output is comparable to litho quality in my opinion. The colour print quality and the bleed facility means we can offer specialist short run, variable data, colour envelope printing at a very cost-competitive price. This has given us a considerable commercial advantage in the market. As a result we are supplying to other print companies and also receiving referrals from printers and direct marketing agencies”.
Using the AS-970C Mach 5 the cost per impression can be from as little as 56p per 1,000 impressions. The Production Manager confirms, “You could not get bleed printing with a litho process using pre-made envelopes and any litho print run has to be in thousands of items to make it economic. But using the AS-970C Mach 5 we can print as few as a couple of hundred envelopes at an economic cost for the customer. This has opened up a whole new area of business for us which is growing, so it’s been a very good investment.”
In conclusion the Production Manager states, “It’s an excellent bit of kit, with outstanding quality for its size. It’s proved to be very reliable and we’re putting a lot of work through it. Overall we’ve been very impressed with it and Neopost’s service.”
