Our friends over at Superior Inks and Allied Graphics videoed the most recent batch of samples we sent them for durability testing, utilizing the Sutherland Rub Test machine. This machine rubs the stock together with another piece of stock on a weight to mimic wear and tear on a piece. This allows us to determine if the process, ink, colors, coating and finishing processes are the right fit for a specific job.
SunDance Marketing Solutions Positions Itself for Growth with Speedmaster CD 102 with X-Package from Heidelberg
When SunDance Marketing Solutions, Orlando, Fla. placed an order for Heidelberg’s new and improved Speedmaster CD 102 with X-Package last fall, the company anticipated the arrival of the new press with a very specific set of expectations.
At the time, Director of Operations JohnHenry Ruggieri said, the company looked forward to achieving an extremely favorable price-to-performance ratio, based on the CD 102’s ability to handle substrates from 50-lb. stock to 24-pt. board, press-side color management via Prinect Image Control, as well as to highly automated press components, such as Heidelberg’s Preset Plus Delivery. Overall, SunDance expected to get more work done in less time, at a consistently high level of quality.
“We now are able to pass on the price savings from which we benefit to our clients in the form of fewer makeready sheets, less time on press for each job, as well as faster press and quality checks.” The eco-friendly, energy-efficient CD 102 also fits right in with SunDance’s sustainability policy and commitment to green production, extending its benefits beyond the company and its clients.

SunDance Marketing Solutions is very excited to feature our latest printer, the HP Latex 3000. This isn't your standard wide format printer— it's a 126" Grand Format printer that lets you make a bigger impression on your customers than ever before!
Orlando-based SunDance Marketing Solutions is expanding its large-format porftolio with the purchase of an HP Latex 3000 Printer at Graph Expo 2014. With a long history as a satisfied HP Indigo customer, HP was a natural first choice for the company in its search for new wide-format equipment.
Many factors influenced the company’s decision to purchase the HP Latex 3000 Printer, including the printer’s double-sided printing capabilities, increased speeds and reduced costs and, most importantly, the ability to print on a broad range of substrates with industry-leading quality.
“At SunDance, we tend to think bigger is better and we were determined to acquire a large-format device that not only meets our current needs, but blows the competion away,” said JohnHenry Ruggieri, director of operations, SunDance. “We are thrilled about the new possiblities the HP Latex 3000 Printer brings and are confident the printer will deliver on its promise.”
