distinguishing characteristics to this particular press: This press feeds differently than the Heidelberg Windmill and Cylinder presses—the paper feeds in and out of the press in one straight shot.
a few words from the printer who uses it: It sounds like you’re running a freight train! It prints and runs well, and because you’re using heat (which can range from 100° to 350°) you have to monitor the heat based on the coverage (lots of heat for large coverage).
why we love this particular press: Bob: This does foil stamping—we can do so much more with this press than we can with the others.
