The Print Reproduction Business Revolution
The DRS (Digital Reprographics Solutions) business model is probably unique among all large format graphic reproduction companies in the country. It was founded with unique experiences and business backgrounds that have resulted in a team like no other. As a result of this unique pairing, DRS is one of the only print reproduction companies that offers a range of wide format print reproduction capabilities in one location. Most competitors have to either limit what they can handle or they have to sub-contract the business elsewhere.
At DRS, they can handle all of your wide format reproduction needs from providing blueprints for construction up to reproducing full color billboard size productions. The principles at DRS come from backgrounds that include IT, engineering and construction. When they started the business, rather than follow a traditional model for the print reproduction business, they combined their skills and experiences to develop a new business model that resulted in a very efficient and effective operation that works exceptionally well and is more efficient to manage. They selected state of the art graphic reproduction equipment to insure that their ability to reproduce images for customers is unparalleled. Next they invested in training for their operators to insure that they understood how to fully use and exploit the capabilities of their new state of the art reproduction equipment. The print reproduction process has shifted from a focus on high volume mechanical printing presses to high tech computer operated equipment. As a result, the skillsets needed to operate efficiently and cost effectively have changed. The DRS digital work station approach means that all print functions can be managed via computer stations either on-site or remotely.
This new business model, that DRS has adapted is well positioned to provide all customers with the expertise for completing projects that will be difficult to find elsewhere. For contractors who need blueprints scanned and reproduced, the engineering and construction experience at DRS has repeatedly helped their contractor customers avoid costly errors by alerting them of potential issues at the time the project was discussed. Customers looking for the finest in color reproduction will find a company that really understands color and has both the equipment and the expertise to reproduce true color for their projects.
The efficiency of the new business model is a bonus for all customers. With greater expertise and efficiency in the operation, DRS is very competitively priced, and can usually offer a better product at a lower cost than most of their competitors. And they make sure that DRS remains on the cutting edge by continuing to add and upgrade equipment that expands their capabilities. In 2011 they added new flat bed reproduction equipment that can print on a variety of surfaces and it can print white, which most printers cannot do. In 2012 they added a Cruse Scanner and a state of the art industrial router to handle complex die cutting projects. As a result, designers are no longer restricted from getting as creative as they like. DRS can reproduce whatever full color design needs you may have.
Most print and graphic reproduction companies have to rely upon high volume to realize any efficiency in their operations. At DRS it doesn’t matter if your needs are for one item to be reproduced or 1000 or more. Even fine art can be reproduced efficiently on demand, on paper of canvas. At DRS, no matter what the graphic reproduction project is, you can get it done efficiently and at a price that will surprise and delight you.
