Printing’s a Snap with Canon

They may not have Julia Roberts or Hugh Grant, but Snap Printing Notting Hill does have two of Canon’s biggest stars, the CLC5000 colour printer and the imageRUNNER iR105 black and white networked production system.

The two machines were recently installed at the Snap Printing franchise located 25km outside of Melbourne, continuing a long history that Snap Printing Notting Hill has had with Canon.

“In colour printing, I believe Canon has always been the leader; virtually from conception of colour laser. We chose to go with them in the early days and have stayed with them ever since,” says Snap Printing Notting Hill franchise owner Gary Handel.

“We upgraded to the CLC5000 to replace our CLC1000, which we have actually kept as a backup. With the iR105, we were looking to increase our productivity and our speed. Basically we were looking for he fastest engine we could find with regard to final output of digital files so we were very impressed with the 105 copies per minute, online finishing and overall reliability.”

Handel uses the CLC5000, as well as his other colour devices, for professional and corporate work, printing the larger printing jobs with a faster turnaround time than is possible by his clients’ in-house machinery. The mono devices are primarily used for the production of large documents for training companies.

“Unlike our previous equipment, we can now turn over 3000-5000 colour prints in an afternoon. We can do short run colour such as 1000 full colour flyers while you wait. It’s an unbelievable way in which you can approach the business.”
