Welcome! Come on in and make yourself at home! Feel free to take your shoes off or leave them on – whatever makes you comfortable. And please help yourself to a slice of birthday cake on the table!
Some people have extravagant celebrations, others prefer to turn their birthday into a week-long festivity…but here at the Digital Printing Hot Spot, we have decided to celebrate our one-year birthday all month long! (…although the cake may not last)
So what does our one-year birthday really represent, and what’s up with the silly cake, you may ask? I am very excited to say that with this birthday we are celebrating our commitment to you, our customers, as this marks a full year of delivering you tips and helpful information to get the most out of your production print equipment. Our goal is to help you meet your business objectives and succeed, while making your day-to-day operations run as smooth as possible.
Through the sharing of success stories, industry trends, best practices, technology, workflow efficiencies, and much more – we truly hope that when you visit this site, you are able to walk away (or close out of your browser) with a helpful piece of information previously unbeknownst to you. We know that you face business challenges that keep you up at night. Our objective is to equip you with all the necessary information to help you best handle these challenges.
In our one-year of existence, we have shared many exciting success stories of customers much like yourself, discussed many fascinating issues within the industry, and shed light to various best practices and helpful tips.

    For me the most interesting and helpful articles have been those giving tips for using xerox equipment to the fullest, i.e. custom paper profiles for 700DCP. Keep on blogging !

      Rainer – thank you for the feedback, and you can be sure that we will continue our blogging habits! We will do our very best to include more tips specific to Xerox Production equipment, and ways in which they can best be utilized to help your business succeed. I’m glad you mentioned the post we wrote on custom paper profiles for the Xerox 700, which was popular but wasn’t mentioned above.

      Is there a particular equipment-based topic you would like to see us feature in the future?

    I really enjoy reading the posts and sharing many of them with my “print for pay” customers. The case studies of successful projects keep me looking forward to more posts that I can share. The indexing is great and the links to the other blogs make this a great resource from a sales person’s perspective.

    Some subjects that would be most interesting for me would be:
    1. FreeFlow print servers. There have been several interesting articles about Fiery, so maybe some nice tips about FreeFlow?
    2. Common errors/wrong assumptions/misunderstandings concerning digital printing equipment/ digital printing in general.
