Hear what real printers have to say about Duplo. Our customers share their experiences and how our products perform in the real world.
“We run door hangers, table tent cards, postcards and business cards. And what we found was the cost of the die was paid for in a matter of 2 days for the amount of cutting that we save. We run our business cards now on the UD-300 instead of cutting them on the guillotine cutter and saved probably almost 5 hours per day alone.”
“We like the quick job changeover. We can go from a 13” x 19” press sheet, do a custom perf and score, and change over to an 8.5” x 11” 8-up business cards and then change right back over to a 13” x 19” sheet that has a custom perf job on it.”
“The nice thing about our DC-646 is that it allows our pressman to print on the Ricoh, turn around, put everything on the Duplo, and let it run. He can bounce back and forth while this is doing the job of one or two people, which is very beneficial and cost effective.”
“It has everything that we want and it’s very easy setup. We can go from one size to another size booklet in minutes. We can do landscape books and use different substrates. We can do a lot more with the Duplo than we could with our older equipment."
“With the amount of business cards that we’ve been doing, bringing on the DC-746 has greatly improved our efficiency because we used to guillotine cut them which used to take a lot longer.”
“We’ve been able to take products that would have multiple steps and a real lengthy process and finish them in one or two steps, creating a huge efficiency for our company.”
"We had the System 5000 with two towers. One of the reasons we switched to the 600i was the ability to feed collated books out of one tray. It also allowed us to eliminate the cost of a second tower."
“We were having a lot of issues with our postcards going through the United States Post Office. It was going through the roller system and would come out at the end with smudges and smearing. The UV coater allows us to put that coating on and we’ve had no problems."
"We're very impressed with the setup time. It's minimal, very few tools are required. It's all computer driven. We can go from an 8.5" x 11" saddle stitched book to a small book in minutes."
“We do booklets ranging from 4 to 20 sheets and run over 120,000 newsletters a month. The Duplo machines run very efficiently. We have almost no downtime. We’re able to get them done in half the time.”
