Production printing for creative and office applications
Xerox has been at the forefront of imaging technology since the 1930s. It continually reinvents itself and today there’s a Xerox printer or multifunctional device to meet every requirement.
Production printing is Xerox’s greatest strength. At Commercial Creative Systems, we can repurpose these devices to deliver exceptional studio-quality output. There are also excellent options for offices and smaller studios.
Our favourite Xerox for studio production
Originally designed for light production, we find the colour stability of the C60 is second to none. Coupled with the best output quality, it’s the device that every medium to large studio should have.
A first-rate Xerox for offices and smaller studios
Xerox AltaLink C8000 Series
Compact footprint, low energy requirements, excellent quality and easy to use. Fit this machine with a Fiery and you have the perfect small/digital studio machine. Available in five speeds and with numerous finishing options, it can also to ‘scan to the cloud’ and ‘scan to translate’. Xerox has a winner here.
Ease of use and great green credentials
A strong focus on sustainability and ethics makes for great synergy between Canon and Commercial Creative Systems. Machines have a good environmental profile, focused on waste reduction, low energy consumption and use of recycled materials. They’re also super easy to use.
We supply the full range of Canon office, studio and production equipment, from laser to large format printers and proofers. Devices are regularly updated, so contact us for an up-to-date, unbiased view on the best solution for you.
Devices to meet every office and creative need
Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE
There’s an imageRUNNER ADVANCE for every requirement, whether you’re a style-conscious office, a digital design studio, an ad agency or an architectural firm.
Sustainability goes hand-in-hand with high performance and image quality with these multifunctional devices. Get in touch to discuss which model is best for you, from the super-compact A3 and A4 C3330i to the good all-rounder 5550i without Fiery or the high-performance 5540 with Fiery.
Fantastic image quality
Canon ImagePress C750i
This is Canon’s newest take on the world of light production and graphic equipment. Very good image quality and stability, complete with a wide range of finishing equipment. A Fiery is a must. We’ve been astonished at how close to litho the image quality is. It’s probably the best fast laser device available today.
One of the best large format printers
Canon imagePROGRAF iPF4000
With 12 colours and two online paper feeds, this machine allows seamless switching between proofing and imposition or matt papers. It has a wider colour spectrum than other printer of its kind. It’s also fast and cheap to run. These machines have proved very reliable and easy to use.
Five, six and eight ink variants are available, with sizes from 17” (A2) through to 60”. There’s also a proofing version with a built-in spectrophotometer for calibration and verification.
A comprehensive range to meet diverse needs
HP’s printers and servers can match most professional requirements, and we find they are often the default choice for architects. The range is huge, so give us a call to discuss which option might be the best for your organisation. HP often run value schemes, such as loyalty bonuses, so we may be able to save you money too.
Our favourite HP machine
HP Designjet Z2600PS
