Océ Arizona 350 XT Printer Used to Create Tablecloth for “Birds of a Feather” Dining Suite at Annual Fundraising Event
November 30, 2009 – Trumbull, CT. – Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, was recently called upon to help create a stunning tablescape to support the DIFFA Chicago Chapter’s Dining by Design 2009 event held in the Chicago Merchandise Mart, November 5-7, 2009.
DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS), through fundraising events and grants, supports HIV/AIDS service and education programs in the U.S. Founded in 1984, DIFFA has granted more than $38 million to hundreds of community-based organizations. The DIFFA Chicago chapter recently held its 8th annual Dining by Design event that showcases individuals in the Chicago design community and pairs them with generous table sponsors to create three-dimensional dining suites that are works of art.
NELSON, an international design and consulting firm based in Chicago, contacted the Océ Wide Format Printing Systems office to inquire about helping create an elemental piece for the tablescape. Jim Pelletier, Senior Project Designer at NELSON, had previously worked on the design and build-out of the new Océ Solution Studio in New York City. Seeing the capabilities of the Océ Arizona® 350 XT printer during that project, Jim thought it would be a good fit to create a one-of-a-kind tablecloth for the event. Jim and his team worked with Jeffrey Brito, Manager of the Display Graphics Knowledge Center at the Océ location in Itasca, IL, to print a full-size, round tablecloth with a birdseed image keeping with the “Birds of a Feather” theme of the dining suite. Because of the oversized table on the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer, the tablecloth could be produced in one piece, without seams.
Jeff and his team went to work on the project when they received a tightly-folded, white cotton tablecloth, which had been purchased at a local linens store. It was professionally cleaned and pressed, and the cleaner rolled it onto a large core for transport. The Océ Arizona 350 XT printer was prepared by placing self-adhesive vinyl (SAV), sticky-side up, on the vacuum table. The tablecloth was carefully placed on the SAV and a manual roller was used to smooth it out. The birdseed image was then printed directly onto the tablecloth.

If you’re in the market for a color laser printer for the first time, you are in for some surprises and a few shocks. Color laser printers have come a long way in function and reliability and are now offered by a large number of companies. Laser printers can be all-in-one machines and be as industrial-strong as any company would need them to be. They can also be more moderately priced for the smaller companies and even less expensive for home, business, or personal use.
When comparing color laser printers you need to consider many aspects in order to ensure the best purchase for your needs. Excellent refurbished printers are available at remarkable savings and many will include a warranty that will give peace of mind concerning the cost. Any color laser printer comparison needs to consider those as well. Some laser printers are capable of label making, shredding, gluing pages, collating, stapling and will easily serve the printing needs of one computer or an entire department. A color laser printer comparison needs to consider the ink the printer will use, because toner and cartridges can get very expensive.

Colortrac's Award Winning SmartLF Ci 40e Large Format Scanner Is Now Available With A Certified ISIS Driver
Colortrac is a leading innovator in large format scanners and scanning solutions software since 1989. Its SmartLF Ci 40e (enhanced color) technical document scanner, recently awarded a BERTL 4 ½-Star ?Outstanding? rating, is now available with a certified ISIS (Image and Scanner Interface Specification) driver.
Created by Pixel Translations (now EMC Corporation) in 1990, ISIS is a software standard for the acquisition, viewing, format conversion, printing and storage of documents in order to ensure consistent and reliable communication between hardware and software. ISIS is the basis for a public domain standard, ANSI/AIIM MS61-1996 Application Programming Interface (API) for Scanners in Document Imaging Systems, issued also as ISO 14984. Over 300, high speed small format document scanners are available with this industry standard, enterprise-level interface which ensures that scanned information is quickly and reliably integrated into EDM (electronic document management) and EDC (electronic document capture) applications for digital distribution, processing and storage.
Colortrac has pioneered the use of ISIS for its large format scanners since 2003, when the Colortrac 3680e scanner ISIS driver was developed. Over the years Colortrac has supplied many customers with its wide format scanners and ISIS drivers. Users find the familiar ISIS scanning interface and workflow reduces staff training costs, and they can be confident that a certified and tested connection, allows easy expansion of their EDM system to manage scanned wide format documents such as technical drawings and maps.
Colortrac Sales and Marketing Director, Peter de Winter-Brown says, ?Recent sales successes and economic conditions have re-focused our marketing efforts in the EDM / EDC market and a key element of our strategy is to strengthen our product offering to these important prospective customers. The SmartLF Ci 40 large format scanner range is ideally suited to EDC / EDM applications with its high speed, colour capability and small footprint.?
Organizations that are incorporating color into their printing and imaging environments would like to be able to control access to color printing in order to maximize the return on their investments in color. This doesn’t simply mean limiting access to color, or placing controls on who uses color and who does not, although there is certainly value for some organizations in being able to do just that. But controlling access to color also means being able to monitor how color is used and to track usage by a variety of criteria, in order to make informed decisions that affect operational efficiency. And for some organizations, controlling access to color may also mean accurately determining color usage in order to bill clients or internal users for their usage. Applying color access controls in any or all of these ways enables organizations to use color as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible.
With so many brands and types to choose from, finding the perfect printer for your needs can be daunting. It’s important to assess your printing needs before buying.
First, decide whether you need an inkjet or laser printer. An inkjet printer can provide decent print quality in documents and photographs, but are not usually professional grade. Generally, laser printers are faster and more precise than inkjets. A laser printer is a better choice if you regularly print photographs, documents that contain graphics, or if you print in high volume.
Another point to consider is whether you need a printer that is multifunctional. Many printers are now all-in ones or Multifunction Printers. They scan, fax, copy and print documents. Multifunction Printers can either be inkjet or laser and the cost of the machine reflects the number and functions the machine provides.

A digital press is engineered to meet more demanding requirements than a color copier. Your customers may assume a digital press can: (1) produce noticeably better-looking prints; (2) handle a wider assortment of papers; (3) reproduce specified colors accurately and consistently; and (4) maintain the quality of images used in the document.
A digital press is expected to go beyond the bright, saturated colors of a color copier and must be able to produce neutral grays, natural skin tones and accurate “memory” colors such as green grass, blue skies, and red apples. A digital press also requires accurate tone reproduction. Tone reproduction refers to the number of tones between the highlight and
shadow areas of an image. Without correct tone reproduction, a printed image won’t be acceptable.
