JP Graphics Offers Metallics with New Xerox Press

New Xerox Color 1000i Press Helps JP Graphics Bring Metallic Gold and Silver to Silicon Valley

Leading Silicon Valley print provider JP Graphics has acquired a Xerox Color 1000i Press to help drive growth in digital printing of specialty products, packaging and greeting cards. The JP Graphics system includes the press’s optional fifth toner station for printing clear and gold and silver metallic toners to generate effects that can add value.

“The Color Press 1000i will enable JP Graphics to grow through quick-turn, high-quality digital prints on demand,” said Joan Escover, president, JP Graphics. “We added the clear dry ink along with gold and silver metallic inks to the system so we can offer the widest range of products and choices to our customers.”

JP Graphics also plans to engage Xerox for help in developing the new business offerings and in building a new digital storefront.

The new press was delivered with a Xerox® EX-P 1000i Print Server, Powered by EFI Fiery®, on Nov. 27, the Friday after Thanksgiving. “Xerox was incredible,” Escover said, describing the installation. “Xerox worked through the weekend to get it fully operational and generating new revenue to JP Graphics on Monday.”

The Color Xerox 1000i Press provides the industry’s first capability to print with metallic gold and silver dry inks, along with optimal quality, productivity and press availability to meet most every digital printing need. Print speeds are as fast as 100 ppm, print resolution is 2,400 x 2,400 dpi, and substrates range to 350 gsm, including a wide range of synthetics, polyesters and other specialty media.

JP Graphics, based in Santa Clara, Calif., provides a complete range of printing services for businesses in the Silicon Valley and beyond.

Environmentally Friendly Printing

GreenBizLgoOutlined-2Is there such as thing as environmentally friendly print products?

Paper sometimes gets a “Bad Wrap” when it comes to the environment. As a certified green printer we thought we would take a moment to dispel some of the myths surrounding the print industry and use of paper.

Paper Can Be Recycled up to 7 Times!

Paper is the most reused material in the United States, and 65% of the paper sold is recycled. (AF&PA, 2013) To be considered recycled by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), uncoated/writing paper requires a minimum of 30% post-consumer materials. Coated papers used in high quality printing and for magazines need a minimum of 10%.

What are post-consumer materials?

Paper that you have used and then returned to a recycling plant is considered post-consumer waste. This includes office paper, magazines, packaging, and publications. The papers are then de-inked, washed, and whitened, and converted into new paper and print products.

How does this differ from pre-consumer materials?

Unpurchased magazines and newspapers, and the scraps created in the milling process are considered pre-consumer waste.  Although they are usually reprocessed, these materials are often not considered recycled.

What about the trees?

Most of the harvested trees in the United States are used to make lumber, not pulp or paper. Almost 90% of the trees that are used for new paper come from private landowners, who maintain, sustainably manage, and renew the forests they harvest from.

Shouldn’t we worry about the “Carbon Footprint”?

Much of the energy used to produce paper is renewable. In fact according to a 2013 study by ECOFYS, a leading expert in sustainable energy solutions and climate policies, the entire pulp, paper, and print process accounts for only 1% of the world’s green-house gas emissions, making the paper and print production lifecycle one of the lowest industry emitters. Paperless solutions offer a different set of problems from manufacturing and e-waste concerns, to energy consumption, and the move to digital is typically a cost factor versus an environmental one.

How is JP Graphics green?

While many of the papers and products we use are recycled, we can also provide paper that is completely recycled upon request. Additionally, our facility recycles all of our leftover paper, packaging, ink, cartridges, and pre-consumer waste, and our entire building and print department is powered by solar.

What can I do to help?

Recycling paper has never been easier! Trash companies often provide bins, and many stores and shopping areas have paper recycling bins as well. The following products can be recycled depending on your waste management company:

– Writing paper, folders, stationary, business cards, notebooks, and colored paper

– Cereal boxes, product packaging, detergent boxes, corrugated boxes and coffee sleeves

– Paper shopping bags, gift bags, and wrapping paper

– Newspapers, old mail, and fliers

– Clean coffee cups, milk, and juice cartons

– Telephone books, magazines and catalogs (staples are okay)

– Hardcover & softcover books (you may need to find a recycler who specializes in this)

You can also repurpose your paper products and boxes! We’ve shared a few ideas on our Pinterest Board to get you started.

Printing is Green

Power of Print Booklet_JP GraphicsIs our Earth suffering because of print? The answer is no. Despite the common misconception, print is a sustainable and environmentally responsible communications medium.

In the new booklet, The Value of Print, you can explore the many ways in which print is green:

  • responsible products used
  • renewable energy sources such as our solar installation
  • increased recycling rates
  • improved design and delivery methods

Print media is the environmentally sound choice for communicating your brand message with the audiences you want to reach.

Solar Powered Printing Company

In our industry, being conscious of the environment is very important to us. That’s why we are proud to be the best solar powered printing company in Santa Clara.

Our Solar Installation is now complete! The system was completed on November 26th, 2014.
Another 685 solar panels were installed for an additional 110 kW. This investment demonstrates our commitment to saving the environment. We’re also a “Certified Green printing company“.

On a nice California summer day, the solar installation will produce over 800 kWh of clean, green, and economical energy! This will offset or meet nearly 85% of JP Graphics summer daily peak load.
