The Kent direct mail printer joins MPG Books as a Prosper customer with a third UK user still to be officially announced. Meanwhile The Lettershop Group has been using the Stream heads, that form the heart of Prosper, in an offline configuration to add variable colour and text to preprinted reels.
At present the press is being used to assess the costs of use and different substrates that might be used. Ultimately the press will be suitable for long run jobs with a high level of variable data., possibly eliminating the need to print and overprint.
The print company has invested £20 million over the last five years. It will decide whether to complete the purchase of the Prosper once testing has been completed in the next few months.
