Masterpiece Graphix Introduces Dry Edge Semigloss to Digital Printing Market

Masterpiece Graphix has developed a revolutionary digital paper that features an adhesive-free edge that completely eliminates ooze-buildup in Indigo presses.

Saint Louis, MO, June 19, 2009 --( The HP-Certified Indigo Treatment Center, Masterpiece Graphix, has launched their newest contribution to the digital world, MGX Dry Edge Semigloss. This new offering is a revolutionary product featuring an adhesive-free edge that eliminates the ooze build-up which commonly plagues vacuum boxes and causes unnecessary maintenance and shut-down of production to clean the press. MGX Dry Edge Semigloss is available for only pennies more than non-dry edge semigloss. A recent in-house study performed by an Indigo production manager concluded that the minimal extra cost of Dry Edge Semigloss is offset by the time and money saved by not having to stop production to have a pressman clean press components. After factoring the cost of labor and downtime, it was this company's conclusion that Dry Edge materials save their company an average of $0.06 per msi.

Masterpiece Graphix began offering Dry Edge Semigloss as a product several years ago. At that time, the cost to manufacture the product was a deterrent to some, despite the benefits that it was proven to provide. MGX worked diligently to save production costs in the manufacture of Dry Edge materials, and is now pleased to announce that a low-cost Dry Edge Semigloss is available.

So what does this mean for Indigo users? The dry edge of the paper allows for clean running on the press - no more shutting down to clean the vacuum box, nips, and rollers. Press maintenance and downtime will decrease, Efficiency will increase, and the production team will be able to stay focused on printing. Printers will come out ahead - saving labor costs, protecting the costly Indigo from adhesive residue, and increasing daily throughput.
