“In today’s fast-moving world, our clients look to us to help them execute highly personalized and impactful direct mail campaigns in days — not weeks. With our Canon varioPRINT iX sheetfed inkjet press, we can handle large print runs and quick turnaround without sacrificing print quality, and that helps us meet our quality of excellence requirements while delighting our customers with turn time,” said Terry Brokamp, SVP, Vya.
