Martin Printing adds new Iridesse Production Press

Easley, SC —

Martin Printing Co., Inc. is among the first graphic communications providers in the region to acquire a Xerox Iridesse Production Press. The new digital press brings with it the unique ability to deliver eye-catching spot embellishments and metallic hues all with unmatched image quality.

“We’re constantly looking to upgrade to new and higher quality equipment,” said Craig Ragsdale, Martin’s Vice President. “Once we saw the Iridesse, it was clear the quality it can produce is unmatched in the digital print market and we’re excited about what this press can produce for our clients.”

The Iridesse is the only digital press that can print metallic gold or silver, extended gamut colors, CMYK and clear dry ink in a single pass, delivering stunning iridescent colors and embellishments never seen before in digitally printed pieces. Ragsdale expects the new press will help its customers stand out in their markets and increase response rates.

Martin plans to use the new press to produce a range of high-end corporate marketing collateral, variable data direct mail pieces and short run packaging for its customers in marketing, travel/tourism, publishing and other industries.

In addition to the new Iridesse, the 119 year old Upstate printing company also leverages a state-of-the-art Heidelberg XL press, two full heatset web presses, a full bindery and satellite post office for turnkey printing, mailing and fulfillment.
