HUNTLEY – MLS Mailing Inc., a full-service mailing, fulfillment, print and marketing services provider, has expanded with two new Konica Minolta bizhub digital presses.

Owners Maria and Angel Vazquez said they added the latest digital technology in response to the needs of their clients.

Established in Chicago in 1984, MLS Mailing moved to the suburbs in 1993 and opened its 10,000-square-foot facility at 11381 Allison Court in Huntley in 1998.

The addition of the Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 will allow MLS Mailing to achieve new levels in client deliverables. Owner and President Maria Vazquez noted that technology has accelerated at a dizzying pace over the past few years. “In tandem, businesses have harnessed the technology and developed new customer-centric techniques for motivating people to purchase products and services,” she said. “One of them is the digital printing market. This is why we conquered our fears and stepped into the digital work with Konica Minolta and their C8000 and bizhub PRO 951 digital presses.”

The bizhub PRESS C8000 incorporates new Simitri HD+ color polymerized toner for offset-like image quality, and utilizes a new dual fusing system that improves throughput productivity even when running heavy weight stocks. The press employs an air and vacuum belt paper feeding system, similar to an offset press, for reliable substrate handling.

MLS selected the CREO Color Server and Print Shop Mail variable data printing software to help maintain color standards with sophisticated color management tools, and to provide customized and personalized direct mail marketing pieces.

The bizhub PRO 951, a digital black-and-white press, images at 95 pages per minute and will allow MLS to provide services including direct mail pieces, marketing collateral, manuals, booklets, and other supporting work for customers on a tight deadline.
