Hi Paul-- I haven't seen that technology... since you've had it in your shop for over 2 months, what do you think? Are you printing any unique kinds of jobs with it?

Anyone know of a VDP shop with early adopter mentality? I have a slightly used Kern EasyMailer (just over 100K envelopes) available at a greatly reduced price. It's currently in the Midwest however it's a small foot print so could be shipped easily.

We are currently looking at putting an IGEN 4 on the floor as a replacement for our Nexpress 2100. Looking for feedback if anyone has IGEN 4 downtime problems and any production issues that you be experiencing,

Hi Matt we have had an iGen3 for a few years and we put in three iGen4 presses last year, two with the larger sheet size and one without. Overall they have worked very well and the inline spectrphotometer that the iGen3 doesn't have makes a big difference. Our color keeps much more consistant without as many adjustments or part changes by our operators. Do you know what configuration you're your getting yet?

Matt,
FormStore has both Kodak NexPresses and Xerox iGen. Email me offline at pedwards@formstore.com with some details on the types of print you want to do.

We've got a debate going on here at Semper and I'd like to get some opinions from this group...
What are the biggest differences between a NexPress, iGen, and Indigo? In your opinion which is best?
Comment by Rick Lindemann on March 25, 2010 at 12:20am
All depends on what you want. Indigos are great for photo applications and spot color matching, but the image isn't always as durable, specifically in the mail. iGens are very good for solids, but are fairly expensive to operate. NexPresses are probably the least expensive to operate and are easier for your operator to maintain, but it doesn't do as good for solids. All depends on your application. These are all generalizations and there is certainly much more detail to each of them.

Stop by the Georgia Pacific Booth at On Demand in Philly, April 19-22. GP/Rollsource is introducing GP Spectrum ColorPro 96b paper for full color production Ink Jet printing.
