KBA Rapida 145 Brings Large Format Printing to M&B

“Our decision to move into the large-format market with the 57˝ Rapida 145 press will help to separate Marshall & Bruce from the highly-competitive general commercial printing industry and bring value-added services to our existing customer base.”   That’s a quote from M&B president Chip Smith in a recent article in Printing Impressions.

The new addition really rounds out M&B’s capabilities.  The new press—installed in late summer 2013—joins an existing 20˝ KBA Genius 52  press and a seven-color, 41˝ KBA Rapida 105 press.  The new Rapida 145 will allow us to more efficiently print high-end point-of-purchase and packaging on a variety of substrates, while the Genius can focus on short-run jobs and our KBA Rapida 105 press can be dedicated to high-end commercial work.  It’s a win, win, win for M&B customers!

It’s all about them: One-to-one marketing.

Marketing experts know that the more targeted the marketing effort, the more cost efficient.  The ability to use information we know about a prospect or customer helps us to target our message specifically for them – almost like talking to a friend about a common interest.

Variable data printing offers the opportunity to target prospects and customers more effectively by using information you know about them to personalize your direct mail or other marketing materials.  It can be as simple as personalizing a piece with a name.  But it can be as “variable” as the data you have or can purchase about someone.  Maybe you run a clothing boutique and have past purchase information.  You might send a direct mail offering specific accessories based on past purchase behavior.

The process is  straightforward.  Variable data printing uses the information from a database to customize printed pieces based on the information associated with each individual in the file.  The more information you have, the more personalized – and effective – your message can be.

Interested in a variable data campaign?  Talk to the experts at Marshall & Bruce.

The recent addition of a new Genius 52 UV offset press  perfectly complements M&B’s existing presses.   Small in comparison to the massive KBA Rapida 105, the Genius allows us to keep smaller digital jobs in house and provides a cost effective way to print shorter-run projects on a variety of substrates – from paper and board to plastics, PVC, styrene and more.  Learn more in these two articles:  Printing Impressions December and Printing Impressions March.

A well-oiled machine.

Among our many weapons at Marshall & Bruce is our KBA Rapida 105 – a monster of a printing press that provides UV inline printing and the ability to print up to 7 colors on a variety of substrates from plastic to styrene, and up to 38 point paperboard. When the flood of 2010 hit, quick thinking on the part of our experienced technicians – first to cut the power as the flooding started – and then to keep the equipment lubricated until repairs could begin – helped save the company.  But it was help from employees, business partners, and many vendors, including KBA, that really made the difference.  Read more in this story in Printing Impressions.

We've seen fire and we've seen rain.

Call us the comeback kids.  Marshall & Bruce has had to overcome adversity numerous times in our almost century and a half history.  But comeback, we do.  And always a little stronger and a little smarter.   In 1895, it was a devastating fire.  In 2010, it was the flood.  In this Nashville Business Journal article, Marshall & Bruce president Chip Smith shares lessons learned – from identifying key players internally, to relying on the relationships the company has built over the years within the commercial printing industry.
