Data Mail Solutions (DMS) is set to become the first company in the UK to install the new Canon VarioPrint iX3200. 

The print and mailing company, based in Crawley, is also adding a Canon VarioPrint i300 to support data-driven direct and transactional mail streams.

DMS is partnering with Canon for the first time due to the need for increased reliability and to cover a combination of transactional, direct mail and high quality coated commercial applications.

Over the last few years the company says it has seen significant growth in mailing services. In particular, DMS has seen a boom in ‘just in time mailing’ and is processing an ever-increasing number of daily records for its clients. As a result it needed a solution that could provide high quality, productivity and cost efficiency, whilst also allowing the flexibility to work across several markets.

‘By installing both machines, we will benefit from their individual strengths,’ said managing director Simon Smode. ‘These new devices fit perfectly with the wide range of applications we run at DMS. I am very excited about what the iX3200 will bring to the business, from its exceptional quality, to the flexibility of migrating small and medium litho print runs. We are also very impressed by the environmental credentials of both Canon devices.’

Stuart Rising, head of commercial print, production printing products, Canon UK, added, ‘We’re delighted DMS will be the first company in the UK to install the new VarioPrint iX3200. This is the first time we’ve worked together, and we’re pleased we’ve been able to find the right solution for them.

‘The VarioPrint iX-series offers customers the very latest technology from Canon through high quality, and reliable printing at a cost-effective solution. As more opportunities are created in the market, the VarioPrint iX-series will help companies who are looking to offer their customers increased flexibility.’
