Always a Pleasure

We’re pleased to officially deem our annual fundraiser for Breckinridge-Franklin Elementary a huge success.  We donated 50 Christmas food baskets, enough to provide a generous holiday dinner for those deserving families.  This is such an enjoyable fundraiser for all of us at Duplicator Sales & Derby City Litho as we share one common denominator - it’s all about the kids. 

Employee of the Month

  James has embraced his role as Technical Trainer for our Ricoh and Lexmark products for the last 17 years.    He often holds in-depth technical training classes to our service personnel to keep them up-to-date on all enhancements, new equipment,  and product updates.   As of late, he has taken on the extra role of training on our new FP Mailing Systems.             

Good Things Come in Small Packages

Meet the newest in Ricoh’s line of multi-functional printers, the MP 601SPF. What’s unusual about this new desktop model is its small footprint. It is 18.7”x19.84”x25.39” and weighs in at just over 61 pounds, making it fit in most tight spaces. What’s big about this black and white model is its speed. It copies/prints at 62 prints per minute with the first copy speed at 6 seconds or less. If you don’t need quite that much speed, it also comes in a 52 ppm version.

A Paperless Office?

     Being in the copier/print business, we’ve all heard the forecasts of an eventual paperless office.  For those in the biz, we find that forecast a little presumptuous.  In other words, pump the brakes!
     From all indications, many of us think that won’t happen in the very near future.  With the explosion of information, this should fuel more printing than ever.  Still others argue that with emerging technologies, print is destined to go by the wayside.  Who’s right?

Employee of the Month - Tim Easton!

     Derby City Litho's Digital Department has been steadily growing and Tim has done an excellent job of keeping up with the demand.  All jobs have been completed in a timely manner and Tim has been required to work some overtime and weekends, meeting the challenge head on.

     He is in charge of the digital presses as well as imposition and layout for offset presses.  Since he's been at Derby City for 28 years now, he knows what he's doing.  He's a pleasure to work with and we all enjoy his witty sense of humor.  Great job, Tim!



~~The long-term success of a company depends heavily on its employees.  High turn-over reflects poorly on a business, suggesting employee dissatisfaction. However, long-term employees add a sense of loyalty and ownership to a business that has been good to them.  Having said that, pleased join us in celebrating July, August, September & October working anniversaries for Duplicator Sales & Service and Derby City Litho:

Employee of the Month

     Kudos to Bobby Fields, this month's standout employee.  Bobby is an elite member of our Service Department who often leads the way in producing more calls per day while maintaining a high 1st Call Efficiency Rating.

     He works on the vast majority of the Ricoh product line, whether it be color, black & white and even some of the larger models.  He is very productive and at the same time flexible enough to help other technicians and customers by providing support.  Bobby is definitely an asset for the Service Department and to our customers as well.

When is a Good Time? ...

     While discussing the topic of purchasing a mailing machine, the same question consistently arises:  Why should we consider purchasing vs buying stamps from the local post office?  First of all, there are many things to consider, the first being that no one can actually own a postage meter.  Postage meters can be rented through the United States Postal Service only.  Under federal law, postage is considered to be currency and printing of postage is strictly regulated under the United States P

Small Footprint, Big in Features

     Ricoh has just introduced the latest in A4 technology with the addition of the 501spf and 601spf multifunctional black and white copiers.  Complete with copy, print, fax and color scanning, these Ricoh products give you faster print speeds (52 and 62 ppm respectively) and come standard with Genuine Adobe Postscript.
