November 19, 2007

Carlstadt NJ April 19 2007 − US Ink has signed an exclusive distribution deal for North America and South America (including Mexico) with Sinapse Graphic International a company specializing in printing press simulators. “We are pleased to announce this exclusive distribution with Sinapse ” said Greg Lawson President of US Ink. “This advances our goal of addressing the needs of our customers for multi-site affordable and structured on demand press training solutions. USEIT is a comprehensive coldset web training program that unlocks new potential.

US Ink’s USEIT Program represents a genuine price breakthrough because the price of the simulator is based on the number of simulator hours purchased. “USEIT moves simulator training from a capital expense to an operational expense ” according to Peter Herman President of Sinapse Graphic International. “This new time based pricing model allows newspapers with multiple printing sites to more cost effectively incorporate press simulator training across their organization.”

The color capability in the newspaper industry today is impressive and advertisers are looking for consistent high quality print results. USEIT is specifically designed to help organizations exceed the print expectations of their advertisers and readers. Now we are not only providing the best consumable systems on the market but we’re able to deliver USEIT the industry’s best coldset web press simulator for enhanced pressroom training programs.”
