Linemark Printing, Inc. installs second Imaging Solutions fastBook Professional 1000 for layFlat book production.
Here you see an interesting press release by one of our customers from the United States:
Upper Marlboro, MD (October 5, 2020) – Linemark Printing has expanded its LayFlat book production lines to include two Imaging Solutions fastBook Professional 1000 binders.
“We installed our first fastBook machine about a year ago to see if it could in fact reduce the manual processes required to make a layflat, while still producing a high-quality book” said Steve Bearden, President. “It did just that and we are moving more production to the format with a second machine.”
The fastBook platform combines many of the normally manual tasks required to produce a LayFlat book while increasing quality and consistency. The equipment installed at Linemark are third generation and leverage barcoding for dynamic set-up and general end-to-end automation.
As noted by David Ashton, EVP/Partner “We are seeing meaningful growth in the LayFlat product and want to fully support our clients needs. First by producing a world class product, then keeping pace with the volume and turnaround expectations. The fastBook is making that possible.”
Linemark has produced one-off, high-quality, custom LayFlat books in the photobook space for about 10 years. Through the Imaging Solutions relationship, Linemark is becoming a major provider of the product to accompany their significant presence in the Photo/Story/Yearbook industry.
Linemark is an intensely client focused manufacturing company headquartered in a 90,000 square foot building in the Washington, DC / Baltimore corridor. Supporting the print-on-demand and general commercial market, it leverages innovation through the automation of complex manufacturing workflows of numerous printed products.
