Valhalla, NY - November 12, 2007 - As digital printing becomes a viable option for an increasing number of
print jobs, many printers are looking to add digital printing to their roster of capabilities. But, for printers who
pioneered the digital printing trend, it's time to expand their capabilities. That's what Portland, Oregon based
ADPRINT Company is doing.
In response to the growing demand for digital printing, ADPRINT Company upgraded its equipment, replacing a
Xerox DocuColor 6060 with the larger and more versatile DocuColor 8000AP. For owner John Trachtenberg,
added flexibility and versatility were key.
"We're very heavy into digital print, are very experienced at variable data printing and are known for our short-
run, highly personalized work," he says "The DocuColor 8000AP gives us the ability to produce an even higher
The DocuColor 8000AP is capable of printing up to 80 color pages per minute; all at 2400 x 2400 dpi ; to give
users razor-sharp color. In addition to the 2400 dpi resolution, the DocuColor 8000AP features digital halftone

ADPRINT Company is producing higher quality products at an even faster pace. "We're finding that more and
more of the our customers' jobs are well-suited for being printed digitally and there's no longer much of a stigma
attached to digital print. With the DocuColor 8000AP, we're now able to turn jobs around more quickly; often
the same day ; and that's proven beneficial for our customers as well as for our own business."
Operating since 1962, ADPRINT Company has continued to grow and to evolve because of the company's
reputation for fine printing and highly personalized service. "This new device allows us to continue to do that,
while still meeting our customers' needs for tight deadlines.
At the same time ADPRINT Company added the 8000AP it installed the Xerox Freeflow Web Services.
Responding to customer requests for a web to print solution it allows for the creation of secure customer specific
websites off which customers can order reprints of archived jobs, submit new jobs, view proofs and in general
manage their relationship with ADPRINT online. It also provides a seamless online method for customers to
manage their inventory of printed materials as well as fast, easy implementation of marketing programs.
