The print industry is changing rapidly and Koke New Century, Inc. is proving that it can roll with the changes. Over the past five years, we have invested in technology that has expanded our capabilities, made us more sustainable, and streamlined not only our workflow but also that of our clients. The result is an unprecedented year of growth, industry recognition, and a shattered sales record. Our success in 2017 is proof positive that both our short and long-term business strategies are pointing us in the right direction, laying the groundwork for another century of continued service and leadership in our community.

Stickers being plotted

We began 2017 with a major expansion to our wide format printing capabilities with the addition of two pieces of equipment that together allow us to produce stickers, decals, and cut vinyl. Our laminator adds a layer of outdoor durability to any of our printed products and our plotter gives us the ability to contour kiss cut adhesive printed materials and pre-colored cut vinyl.

At instaprint, we know that to affect real change we must be sustainable, not just in our production methods but also in the way we operate our business every day. For that, we needed the expertise, guidance, and support from the folks at BRING. Pursuing the RE:think certification program has helped us identify and improve practices where needed. For Instaprint, certification means feeling confident that we are pursuing sustainability in the most effective way that we can.

Koke New Century, Inc. pursues sustainability in every aspect of its operations. QSL was the first commercial printer in the area to achieve the Bring RE:think certification. We are so proud to see instaprint get its certification!

Sustainability: The Ultimate ROI

How Renewable Business Practices Can Make Your Shop More Profitable

…QSL is aiming for zero waste. As in, none at all. The company started down this path by recycling everything: “One hundred percent of our aluminum press plates. One hundred percent of our solution containers. And one hundred percent of our pallets, including the straps, wood, and cardboard,” says QSL VP Melissa Koke. “Even the shrink wrap.” And because the company’s paper needs are sourced on a per-job basis, there’s no storage and no waste.

In the coming weeks, we will be upgrading our internal workflow and account management systems in an effort to streamline productivity and unify QSL and instaprint under a single platform. Consolidation means increased efficiency and consistency across both great print shops as well as a simplified billing process that will allow for electronic billing regardless of where you placed your order.
