Box Office Graphics is a graphic design company in Barrie, Ontario that provides its customers with prepress services, graphic design services, platemaking services, and more. With over 35 years in the industry, Box Office Graphics continues to build on its success by providing high-quality products and services.
Box Office Graphics’ main customer base is those companies that decorate rigid packaging in the round (tubs / pails / cans) Virtually all of these customers have presses with pin registration systems.
“We have for years been looking at the digital direct-to-plate systems for letterpress plates” says Doug Howard, President of Box Office Graphics, “But none of the current systems offer us enough flexibility on plate sizes and pin configurations. With the variety of punched plates we need to produce on a daily basis, we would basically be forced to buy a dedicated laser system for each of our customers.” This is a highly impractical solution so Box Office continued to wait..
An Efficient & Productive Solution
However, their older Capstan film output device continued to age and recently, reliability and parts availability became an issue. It was time to move to a compromise solution. Box Office decided it was time to move to a digital direct transfer of data to film via a Thermal FIlm Output device. That was when they called Martin Schofiled, Technical Sale Representative from Anderson & Vreeland Canada for help.
It did not take long for Schofield to recommend the Exile Techsetter Thermal film output device, a high-quality pre-press solution for small format flexo, promotional products, specialty printing industries, and screen printing. The Exile Techsetter Thermal gives printers an extremely high-quality, wide-format film output solution producing full-size images. The durable framework of this imagesetter provides both consistency and accuracy with each film.
Once the sample films supplied by another AVC Techsetter client, were tested and approved by Box Office Graphics, they were up and running with the new device in less than 30 days. The new TechSetter was able to increase the productivity and efficiency of Box Office Graphics. “It’s always exciting to help our partners grow and embrace new technology. Box Office Graphics now has a sound solution to their film output struggles and is able to shift focus back to other key areas of their business”“, says Schofield.
Continued Partnership With A&V Canada
Box Office Graphics is always looking for ways to maintain an edge over more prominent industry players. Thankfully, with help from Anderson & Vreeland Canada, Box Office Graphics integrated the Exile Techsetter Thermal, which helped boost its plate making quality, optimize its workflow, and increase its ROI. “Now the density issues are gone, registration between negatives is consistent in addition to the savings from lack of waste, have made this one of our best purchases“, says Michelle from Box Office Graphics.
Box Office Graphics has been a valued partner of Anderson & Vreeland Canada for many years, and we appreciate their continued trust and loyalty in the AVC Team.
