Diane Krafton remembers the old days when the in-plant at Andover Public Schools printed only one thing: black-and-white booklets for its reading program. They were printed on a Xerox 9500, she recalls, and tape bound offline. That was 30 years ago.
A lot has changed since then.
In April 2017, the one-employee shop joined a growing number of in-plants that have added an inkjet device, a move that enabled it to provide affordable color printing to teachers and administrators in the 6,075-student district. The Andover, Mass., in-plant installed a Riso ComColor X1 7150 inkjet printer, capable of printing 120 color ppm. Now the district’s student handbooks, workbooks, exams, envelopes, programs, business cards and more can be printed in full color, something that wasn’t possible in the past.
“The ComColor was the perfect solution to meet our needs for fitting production color into our small basement facility,” says Krafton, Copy Center coordinator. “Although the device makes a big impact, it’s still small enough for our 1,850-sq.-ft. space that houses a few other devices and also serves as a paper warehouse for the entire district.”
