We are so confident that we can print better than our competitors that we're offering you a $25.00 Best Buy gift card if we can't out print you. For the month of June we've decided to put our money where our mouth is and are offering all our potential clients out there the TDS CLEAR Challenge.

To participate simply bring us your digital files and we'll print them for you on our Xerox 1000 Digital Color Press; then you can compare the quality of our printing to your own or your current vendor's. If the TDS print quality is not CLEARly better than yours—we'll give you a $25.00 Best Buy gift card for your trouble.

The Confidence-Inspiring Technology
Why so confident you ask? Well, for the month of June 2012 TDS is showcasing the print quality of our favorite new toy, our new Xerox 1000 Digital Color Press. Why? Because we love our new toy—oh, and it's awesome. The Xerox 1000 can do things...

  • It Can Print in Clear Ink
    This isn't some kind of Houdini printing, BUT, it can print with a clear coat finish. Ta da. That makes it the first toner based digital print press to do so, making it the first press in its league to produce commercial-quality finished documents. The Xerox 1000 is even programmable, so clear coating can be exuded onto the desired pages only, for example on the front and back covers.

  • It Can Be Cool
    With the press' on-board cooling station it comes equipped to process thicker paper stocks while maintaining high color quality. With the cooling station the Xerox 1000 can even print high-quality solids and add clear toner to the job. 

  • Print with a Full-Width Array – Automated Color Quality Suite (ACQS) Our new toy is an intelligent multitasker; it has the ability to constantly monitor itself during print jobs—checking for calibration, registration and color matching. The reduced waste from its color matching and the high-quality output from its calibration and registration are so good Xerox is staking their name on it.

  • It Can do Short-Run Print Jobs WITH Personalization
    With the Xerox 1000 Digital Press you can reduce waste by programming it to run just the amount you need—no matter how short the run. The ability to do short-run print jobs with personalization makes running one-to-one marketing print jobs a more viable option than on traditional printing presses where customization can be costly and wasteful. Consider the waste and expenses: many SMB companies and individuals do high-volume runs just to get the quality they want at the price point they need, then end up storing the extra inventory until it is needed again. But, how often does materials/deals/information change, requiring you to replace your marketing materials? By going digital you get the flexibility of printing shorter-run jobs, without sacrificing quality, as less setup is required AND less waste is generated.
