DUPLO’S DC-745 SLITTER/CUTTER/CREASER TO BE AWARDED “PRODUCT OF THE YEAR” AT 2012 NAQP OWNERS CONFERENCE
Santa Ana, CA. (September 26th, 2012): At the 2012 NAQP Owners Conference, Duplo will be honored with the Product of the Year award for its high production digital color finishing solution, the DC-745 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser. Duplo will be recognized along with four other Industry Award recipients at the conference’s Industry Luncheon that will be held on Saturday, October 6th at the DoubleTree Hotel Magnificent Mile in Chicago, IL.
The Product of the Year, one of the industry’s top awards, is presented to a company that has produced a new or enhanced product that improves product offerings, profitability or customer service. Since its release in 2011, the all-in-one DC-745 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser has proven to be a success with high volume digital printers with its ability to produce a wider range of uniquely finished applications. Performing up to 10 slits, 25 cuts and 20 creases in a single pass, the DC-745 eliminates white borders and toner cracking on fold lines, producing professionally-finished documents in a matter of minutes. The versatile digital color finisher also offers a range of extended capabilities, which include perforating, slit-scoring, micro-perforating and soon, folding and embossing. Users can go beyond basic finishing and create innovative, full-bleed applications such as business cards, greeting cards, perforated tickets/coupons, and much more.
The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) announced a call for nominations in August for its annual NAQP Industry Awards - namely Printer of the Year, Industry Award of Distinction, Supplier of the Year, and Product of the Year - to recognize those in the graphic communications industry who have made significant contributions and had a positive impact on the quick and small commercial print industry. Nominations are submitted by association members and reviewed by a panel of industry experts.
The 2012 NAQP Owners Conference – Embracing Change: Finding New Paths to Profits - will take place Thursday, October 4th through Saturday, October 6th. It is the only industry event dedicated solely to specific issues and interests of owners and executives in the quick and small commercial printer segment.
