Quad/Graphics marketing solutions president Tim Ohnmacht said: . “This location, formerly known as the Williamson Printing Company, earned a stellar reputation as a traditional offset, sheetfed and web print provider, historically focused on serving the needs of creatives and agencies.
“With the addition of the J Press 720S and complete digital bindery capabilities, we are extending our reach as a total-solutions provider and positioned to serve the broader needs of today’s marketing organizations.”
Quad/Graphics digital print executive director George Forge said: “The J Press 720S delivers the closest thing to offset-like quality digital output I’ve seen, with impressive flesh tones and high definition images that pop on a wide variety of stocks, including uncoated and heavier stocks.
