Several customers orders are placed into a single group, for greatest efficiency once assembled, the jobs are sent to plating.
Here, the plate maker sends each job to an thermal infrared plate imaging machine.
Aluminum plates containing an infrared sensitive emulsion, load into the plate setter where it wraps around the imaging drum.
The drum spins at a dizzying thousand RPMs as an infrared laser exposes an image onto the plate.
From there, the now exposed aluminum plate moves to the processor, a four-step treatment is applied: developer chemical, water, buffing and gumming for further scratch protection.
A place for each color in the CMYK file are printed for transfer to the press.
RushMyPrints utilizes three Komori offset printing presses for all of our printing.
Maxed out, the Komori press can print a stunning sixteen-thousand sheets per hour.
The Pressman takes the aluminum plates and hangs them on ink units each corresponding color.
Cling sheets are fed from the back of the machine.
Printing jobs in California can be tough to get done on time, which is why it’s important to have an expert printing service and commercial printer available to you at all times.
A series of conveyers and rollers rapidly shoot each sheet under cyan, magenta, yellow, and black ink units.
The rollers even distribute shoot ink to the plates, which offsets the ink to a blanket roller than in turn applies ink to the paper, coated sheets are then fed through aqueous coating unit and run across heating elements for drying.
Every few hundred sheets, the pressman pulls a sheet for analysis.
He scans a color bar along the bottom edge for color accuracy.
Visual inspection is also needed to check for highest quality, after printing the sheets move to the cutter.
A large industrial cutting machine slices up to 1,000 sheets.
Each job is then separated for transfer to their Particular finishing processes.
From there, your booklets are placed into a machine for scoring and folding.
A conveyer allows for continuous loading of jobs for maximum efficiency.
After the worker activates the machine, each booklet shoots towards the folder plates where up to four folds are applied along with scoring.
The final step is stitching.
The stitcher loads your booklet pages sequentially into the saddle stitching machine, the gathering chain pulls each booklet to the stitching unit, which places two wire stitchings along the edge.
The booklets then move to the trimming unit, slicing off the remaining edges.
The result? A high-quality, quick turn booklet ready to ship via our in-house mailing facility to your customer’s door.
(upbeat music) - What's up, this is John fromJohn Branch IV Photography and I'm extra hype because HoneyBook just released the betaof it's new brochures.
So this beta's only goingout to a select few, but I wanted to go ahead and show you all what they were working on,because it's just so, so good.
Since it's a beta, keep inmind it's not a final product, it may be a little buggy.
And what we're seeing here may end up changing in the long run.
Also if you haven't signedup for HoneyBook yet, thinking about it, or needa client management system for 2019, don't forget to use the link in the description for 50%off of your first year.
But let's go ahead andcheck out this brochure.
So to make and edit a newbrochure, just head up to Tools, Templates.
And then once you're there, Brochure.
So what we're seeing currentlyis the old school brochure.
It was very limited andthere wasn't a lot of editing you could do, pretty straightforward.
Basically you could put in your packages, you could put in yourprices, you could share that with a new inquiry and basically they could choose what they wanted.
Very straightforward, but there wasn't a lot of editing in it.
Let's go ahead and take alook at the new brochure.
So on the left here,we go to my templates.
We can make a new template.
And woo, what is this? So they kinda changed everything, and it's more of a contentarea where you can add photos and text, and then youalso have a different area where you can add your services, which is more like the old brochure.
You have sections, so youcan make different sections for different types of services or even for your different photos.
So let's go ahead and add a couple just to have an ideaof what it looks like.
So let's say at the tophere, I wanted a cover image.
So I choose my image.
I think I uploaded a bunch recently, yes.
So this was me trying itout, seeing how it worked.
It's really cool.
So let's say I'm doing a pricing guide.
So I made a little cover here.
I choose the crop, I can save that.
So that's just straight up a photo.
So anyone else who haslike, PDFs right now that they got designed, andyou have different PDF pages, this would be perfect for you,'cause you could just go in, keep choosing image likethat, and just upload every image and haveone long little brochure that you can send outright through HoneyBook rather than having toattach and extra PDF.
So here this is and I can goahead and add another block.
And yet again I get the sameoptions, so I can do content, I can do services, whichever I wanted to.
Yet again like I wassaying, if you have a PDF pre-made already, and youhave each page separate, like as JPEGs, you couldjust go to cover image again, choose your image.
And then, you know, if you had the price, so let's say I had thislittle pricing page.
Get the crop.
And then I have this nicelooking, look at, just look at it! Custom made brochure, insteadof the old school style.
So if you did want somethingkinda like the old school style what you could do is basically, let's get rid of this section.
And let's title this the Banner.
So I could add a new section and call this Package One.
And I could do a cover image again.
But this time we'll use morelike a, why'd it change? We'll do like a banner image.
Kinda like this.
Make sure my crop's right.
So here we are, Package One.
Then I could add asection, but do services.
Now like I said, services is more gonna be like the old school way of doing it.
So I can pick my item, if I have templates for that stuff already it'll just load in.
So I could find my Package One.
And it would load in there, and they could see all that information.
So this way made earlierin a different template.
And yet again it's morelike the old brochure.
So you can do that and youcan also do the new stuff.
And it just gives you somany, so many options.
Like check this out.
Let's say I made another section, right.
And called it.
So Many Things.
We could put in two images.
So these images do have tobe, they can't be portrait.
I tried it out earlier and the crop wouldn't go the full way.
Oh, here goes our buggy-ness.
Let me go to the one whereI tried it out already.
If I can remember.
Here we go.
So for the large imagesit'll let you do portrait, but for these, and thisis the two column photos, it won't let you do portrait currently, 'cause yet again this is still a beta.
So I did two pictures, sothat was the two image column.
And then under it I didthe two text column.
So you could set up your ownpricing thing that way too, so if you don't have someonewho already designed a PDF page for you or something, you cando this and do it yourself, and then say here's animage, here's an image, here's some text for that image, and then here is a pricing package.
And then just send it off that way to your clients, it's so good.
So, so good.
So that was a quick lookat the new brochures, yet again this is abrand spanking new beta, so they may add some more stuff later.
If you are interested in it,or have any other questions let me know and I'll try andget any more answers to you on what you can do with it.
But that's the gist of it.
It is so, so good to beable to edit your brochures and actually have planning guides and engagement what towears and just so many other things that you can do.
So I'm extra excited about it.
But if you liked that information,don't forget to subscribe to the channel, hit thebell, and don't forget about that 50% off of yourfirst year of HoneyBook.
And I'll see y'all next time.
