Coming off of a strong 2016, Firehouse is foreseeing fantastic growth opportunities for 2017! To meet that demand we are installing a new EFI Vutek HS125 printer in early May. This new machine is a hybrid system that can print both boards and roll goods. But the most exciting aspect of the HS125 is its print quality coupled with blazing speed.
Speed is everything now. For clients, print quality is a given. They want to know who can turn jobs the fastest since their turn times are always getting tighter. The HS125 will meet that demand.
In addition to faster production for existing work, the HS125 can handle print runs that are beyond the reach of other digital devices. Our clients now have options for those larger print runs that, traditionally, could only be produced by the offset shop.
Since jobs will be flying through the shop faster than ever now, clients will appreciate the ability to instantly check job status and tracking through our Spark software. Spark is free to all Firehouse clients and the intuitive browser interface allows 24/7 access to your Firehouse projects. We are continuously developing this application to build out the feature set. We recently added the ability to view and download invoices for any completed job.
To sum up our hardware and software, it’s Faster, it’s Better, it’s Firehouse!
