Originally established in 1976 and formerly known as Falkland Press, the firm specialises in saddle stitched, perfect bound and wiro bound brochure printing. The firm has purchased a Renz AP360 high speed automatic punching system, a Renz MOBI 500 ring wire binding solution and a Renz Punch 500 ES to support its online operations.

The AP360 feature a two-finger paper pick up system which can handle a range of mixed stock and has optional two-part split dies for book and calendar work. The MOBI 500 is a semi-automatic ring wire binding solution for books, calendars and skip binding. The P500 specialises in punching production for all types of books and calendars with ring wire, plastic comb and coil options. The systems join PrintedEasy.com’s factory in Hertfordshire alongside a Heidelberg SpeedMaster XL 106, two B2 HP Indigo 12000s and an HP Indigo 7900.

We plan to use the new equipment to increase our volumes across wire bound documents and calendars

John Ellie, finishing manager at PrintedEasy.com, says: “We plan to use the new equipment to increase our volumes across wire bound documents and calendars, and to remove the seasonal bottleneck we experience for calendar products during the October/November period.

“Printed Easy has an open dialogue with customers, so we are very in-tune with what they want from a print partner. Faster turnarounds and more options are the two requests we receive most often, so this is another way for us to continue giving them what they want. Our autonomy is what allows us to maintain the quality of our products and to keep prices competitive. Bringing wire binding in-house is going to help us continue to achieve this.”

He adds: “We expect to start seeing a return on investment within the next six to eight months. Renz machines are simple to use and to install, which made them instantly appealing. They provide the level of speed and efficiency that we are looking for, and don’t require much maintenance, so they’re an excellent long-term option, as well as giving us immediate benefits.

“We’ve relaunched three of our products since the new equipment was installed, and all of them are growing rapidly. Because we’ve taken away that manual labour element, we have increased our staffing resources while simultaneously reducing our outsourcing costs.”
