Dreamworks Graphic Communications, LLC, a top caliber boutique printing company that specializes in high impact print collateral, has purchased the Scodix Ultra2 Pro Digital Enhancement Press. Introduced last November, the Ultra2 will be a capabilities upgrade from the shop’s Scodix Ultra Pro with the foil station, purchased two years ago.
Dreamworks and its customers have come to understand the value that Scodix and all its 9 applications bring to a project. The ability to bring those enhancements to an even wider range of projects was what made them be one of the first existing Scodix customers to upgrade to the Scodix Ultra2 with foil. With the Ultra2, Dreamworks will be able to provide a wider range of foil types, on a broader range of substrate options. In addition, the shop will also be able to add foil to pieces printed with a larger range of ink and toner types as well, opening the door to even more customers and applications.

"Our Ultra Pro unit has proven to be a solid production machine for our shop, and we have benefitted greatly from the investment,” said Dan Luka, CEO, and Co-Founder of Dreamworks. "This dynamic system allows us to address a wider range of materials and polymers. As our business has expanded, we’ve gotten requests for all types of projects, produced on all types of substrates. Now, the Scodix Ultra2 Pro with foil will open even more capabilities allowing us to change between polymers fitting specific substrates in a very short time. It’s a testament that demand has grown this rapidly once our customers have seen what we can offer with our Scodix.”

"Our mission is — and always has been — to provide our customers with a competitive technological and capabilities edge,” said Scodix VP North America Mark Nixon. "Dreamworks’ decision to upgrade to the Scodix Ultra2 to take advantage of the Multi-Material Platform is the perfect example of this philosophy in action. The demand they have created outstripped their original estimates, and now we have a machine that allows them to expand their range of offerings. It is gratifying to not only see such a satisfied customer but one who continues to see the value in the Scodix line of products. We look forward to continuing to serve Dreamworks as their operations flourish for many years to come.”

The company produces cutting edge marketing materials using unique capabilities for some of the most widely known brands, agencies, and corporations. While starting the company in 2009 at a time when many long-established printers were disappearing, company leaders knew they had to have a new approach to be successful.
