GVC Adds Kodak Nexpress

Gateway Visual Communications’ new Kodak Nexpress SX 2700 sports a supplementary feeder for sheets up to 14″ x 36″, plus dimensional and spot-clear toner features.

A gold metallic unit will be added soon. “We needed something that would allow us to do what we had been doing, but also get us into new markets,” said Brian McConnell, co-owner and vice-president of operations. The digital printing company is looking to move into point of purchase (POP), high-end invitations, and packaging, McConnell said.

“This machine offers a lot of those capabilities at a price point that was quite attractive,” he said, adding that the machine’s output quality has enabled Gateway to bring in previously outsourced offset jobs.

Gateway Visual Communications was launched by Ross McConnell in 1975 and originally specialized in print-on-demand documents. In 1998 it expanded into interactive media, and in 2007 it opened up capabilities in multi-level and multi-media marketing with the purchase of marketing services company Eristocrat Communications. The company’s umbrella includes Gateway Reproductions, Gateway Interactive, and Eristocrat Creative.
