Printing Plus Increases Efficiency with Prosetter 52 and Prinect solutions from Heidelberg

Printing Plus, located in North Houston, Texas, recently installed a Heidelberg Prosetter 52 to increase quality and efficiency. With the new system, the shop is transitioning from film processing to computer-to-plate workflow. Since the installation of the Prosetter, Printing Plus reports decreased prepress labor, faster makeready times and increased workload capacity. Printing Plus also added Prinect MetaDimension and Prinect Signa Station software to enhance its prepress technology and streamline its PDF workflow. The shop uses Heidelberg consumables products, including Saphira Violet plates and chemistry. Founded in 1987, Printing Plus houses six employees and services primarily local businesses and non-profit organizations.

Printing Plus Moves Into New Facility

After operating out of 4 office spaces in the Old Pitch's Hardware Center on I-45 for 15 years, we decided it was time to expand once more. The shopping center we were in was old and there were no more office spaces to expand into. So, in December we were on a quest to find a new home! After looking into buying existing buildings in the area and not finding anything we liked, our real estate agent said "Why don't you buy land and build yourself a building?" A couple of days later, we happened to drive past 3 acres with a for sale sign on it on Robinson Road in Oak Ridge North. It was not far from our current location and what a beautiful piece of property - a park-like setting with old oak trees and East Texas native plants. A perfect idyllic place - country in the city. And it had a mysterious history!

In June, we moved into our brand new beautiful 7,500 square foot facility. We now had an efficient floor plan with pretty new offices - a perfect workplace for our employees and customers. And we couldn't have pulled it off without the generous time and hard work of Ballard Contruction our builder; Henry Quigley, our realtor; Cydney Pearce, our interior designer; Don Roberts at Woodforest Bank, and Bob & Betty - our dear friends and movers who own Fairway Delivery. They all did a great job!
