Marvel installs Epson RIPS

Independently owned Marvel Bookbinding & Printfinishing has adopted Epson’s WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS) to boost its in-house printing.

The company says the system now allows them to print up to 75,000 pages in black or colour per printer without needing to replace the inks. 

Marvel chief financial officer Lea Robinson says, “The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R8590TC RIPS printing solution met our requirements and the price was right so this meant we could purchase the printers outright.

“More than that the quality was very good, reliability was high and the quality was consistent with no click charge.”

Epson says the system offers users low intervention and reduced supply waste, which in turn lowers IT support costs.

Marvel’s new system is being put to use on a daily basis for printing, photocopying and scanning.

“The quality of the printers’ output, especially when printing photos is exceptional,” Robinson says.

“The WF-R8590TC printers get a very big daily workout and are heavily used in our production area where a lot of labels are printed.

“They are excellent performers and there is very rarely a hiccup. Of the small issues that have arisen these printers are so easy to use and maintain that we have been able to fix them ourselves and have never had to call for a service.”

Epson's printers are supplied by Kayell Australia, and Kayell sold Marvel these particular units. 

Marvel is an independently owned bookbinder and finisher based in Victoria’s Heidelberg West. It was founded in 1986 by Wayne Eastaugh and George Laferla.

  1. Wayne always said that their selling point over other binderies, namely the Bindery., was that they are not printers. He must be offering the whole service now

    1. Hi Interested, these are not commercial digital printing machines, they are networked office printers for internal office printing and fax only so no one needs to be concerned as we will never be printers!
