He had customers on his mind. "And they're always happy about that," Janssen says. "The best think about having CTP and being able to offer top quality and quick turnaround is we can now service high-end customers that we were never able to tap into before. Instead of the proverbial seven-day turnaround, now we get things out of here in just a few days."
Janssen says that recently the company handled a dozen rush orders where clients called on a Wednesday and wanted their orders by Friday. He admits that before converting to CTP, Chromagraphics would have been hard pressed to meet those deadlines. But now, there's no problem turning the jobs around in two days.
"Chromagraphics prides itself on having very little turnover," Janssen adds. "The company is 27 years old and a lot of people have been here a lot of that time." And though he may have been concerned that implementing a digital workflow would be difficult as far as training, the proof came quickly. "They're experts in their jobs and enjoy working in printing," he says.
