Sercost Leverages Epson Digital Label Press & Multiple Wide-Format Printer Solutions to Deliver Outstanding Efficiency And Unparalleled Output
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – Jan. 24, 2023 – Epson today announced Sercost, a commercial print provider based in Quebec, has purchased and installed multiple Epson professional printing solutions to support its growing business. After initially purchasing a SureColor® S80600L to replace its previous wide-format printer, Sercost further invested in five additional Epson solutions including a second SureColor S80600L, as well as a SureColor V7000, SureColor F570 Pro, SurePress® L-4533AW, and SureColor T5270. Together, these printers enable Sercost to create its acclaimed vehicle wraps.
“Initially when we needed a new wide-format printer, we were drawn to the Epson SureColor S80600L due to its 10-color bulk ink tank system, its use of Red and Orange ink and its compatibility with the vinyl we were working with,” said Marco Côté, president, Sercost. “We were surprised to learn the SureColor S80600L was twice the speed of our original wide-format printer and were so happy with it that within a week of purchasing the first unit, we went back and purchased a second, and derived a plan to switch all of our wide-format printing to Epson.”
Sercost has remained loyal to Epson since purchasing SureColor units S80600L. This is due to their unparalleled speed, efficiency, output, and reliability. Sercost has noticed an improvement in its project turnaround and speed since each new Epson was purchased. When discussing the most recent purchase, the SureColor V7000, Côté noted, “there is no comparison to our previous model, where I was only able to output four boards per hour; now with the V7000, I can double that. There’s a big difference in print quality too. We can’t wait to do more experimenting to see what the printer is capable of.”
Sercost purchased an Epson SurePress L4533AW digital label machine to produce digital labels. “In January, we purchased a SurePress to bring label printing in-house,” shared Côté. “Within a few months of the install, we were able to automate the process and can now output thousands of labels per day. This has given us the chance to bid on new customers. We are currently finalizing a large contract for 80,000 labels per Month with a pharmaceutical company. This wouldn’t have been possible without the SurePress.”
“Sercost is an example of how our printing solutions are manufactured to help print shops succeed,” said Matt McCausland, group product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America Inc. “When their initial wide-format printer short circuited, we were thrilled they chose Epson to offer a reliable solution, and not only keep their production going, but double their expected output.”
Sercost is expanding their in-house productions and aiming to bring an Epson direct–to-garment printer on-site. “After the results we’ve had with all our other Epson printers, it only makes sense to turn to what we know and trust Epson with our DTG printing as well,” said Côté.
