Telepathic Graphics, an expert digital and offset printing company in the Raleigh, NC area, recently announced that it has partnered with Canon Business Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Canon U.S.A. and a leading provider of document imaging and print production solutions, to increase their print services through a major capital investment in hardware as well as a new solution that integrates seamlessly into their existing Apogee workflow.
Telepathic Graphics’ goals were to increase speed, automate more processes, and successfully manage the growth they were undergoing as the result of their purchase of an offset print shop and the acquisition of some large contracts. They are anticipating a revenue increase of between one half and one million dollars over the next year. Bob Boyle, Chief Telepath at Telepathic Graphics, said, “We built the business on the back of the Canons,” referring to two Canon digital presses that they already owned. “When it came time to add to our fleet, we didn’t just go with what we knew; we did a lot of research.”
That extensive search led them to Canon Business Solutions, who could supply them with the digital presses they needed to grow their business, and also had the knowledge needed to work with them to develop a unique solution to create a hybrid workflow of offset and digital. “Canon Business Solutions had the capabilities and quality that no other vendor could offer,” said Mr. Boyle. They pledged to help Telepathic Graphics maintain their intense focus on the customer, and uphold the principle of providing “quality product in a timely manner”.
The first component of Telepathic Graphics’ expansion was the addition of three Canon imagePRESS 7010VP digital presses. These digital presses produce the near-offset quality that they were looking for, while also being the workhorses they needed. They bought these machines with the projected (and subsequently realized) estimation of using them 20 hours a day, five to six days a week. In just the first four weeks, they generated over 1.4 million clicks between the three new machines - and they’re still going strong.
