Get all the short-run packaging jobs with the Versant 280

Equip the small Versant 280 press with the Xerox FreeFlow Core Software to turn it into a readymade job-seeker that can pave the way for your production press to get all the jobs you want.

With the Versant 280, you have access to a high-end machine that is every production press' dream. The machine can print collaterals in gold, silver, and clear colours, and up to 400 GSM. With its capabilities, it can achieve goals and perform print jobs that previously only offset printers could take up.

If you invest in the Versant 280, you can cater to start-up companies and freelancers who need to do short-run print jobs. With it, they can get collaterals of the same quality as an offset printer. Its vivid colours are usually not available in digital printing machines.

Read our guide to the Xerox Versant 280 Press to understand how you can use this versatile machine.



1. What kind of stuff can you print with the machine?

The Versant 280 is largely a production press, which comes with Adaptive CMYK colours, vivid toner, and fluorescent colour options. With those capabilities attached, as a production press, you can say yes to almost any demand that your customers make of you, and beyond, with an emphasis on short-run packaging jobs.

2. With the Xerox Versant 280, you can print the following:

  • Window stickers and cling films for products
  • High-end marketing collaterals such as brochures, flyers, and business cards, in bulk.
  • Fluorescent posters that can be used where brightly-coloured items are required such as play zones and nightclubs
  • Vinyl to floor stickers
  • Other stickers and labels
  • Carbonless sets

3. Try out some of its adaptive workflows to find customers

You can equip your Xerox Versant 280 with Xerox FreeFlow Core, which automates the process steps required to prepare any job for print. This gives you an automation solution no matter the size of the print shop you work in.  The FreeFlow gives you the option to resize and pre-light your print jobs, which means you can take on any customer who wants that done simply by creating a pre-set flow based on the steps you needed to do the first print job.

You can even take on the boutique print jobs that are too tricky for otherwise large production presses to handle, with plenty of embellishment.

4. Who has used this machine recently?

The COVID-19 lockdown has created a demand for takeaway menus everywhere and restaurant owners do not have time with a designer to sit down and get the menus done. Instead, they depend on the Xerox Versant 280 Press to get three or proofs done for them to decide.

Companies working in creative professions that require packaging in bulk (such as perfume packaging)

Companies have also identified that they can get batches of around 500 to 1000 leaflets, brochures, or flyers produced on the Versant 280 press without having to put the work out to another litho company to get it done.

Companies have also begun depending on the Xerox Versant 280 for batch jobs and mail merge work, where the machine eats up all the smaller runs.
