Known for pocket folders, presentation folders, and magazine printing, CanDo Printing’s client roster covers all of North America. Started in 1983 by Frank Blankenship, printing four-color process on a single color press, and now celebrating 35 years in 2018, CanDo Printing is a second generation family-owned business. Kyl Blankenship and his brother Ty, along with their large staff of experienced professionals offer Prepress, Pressroom, and Bindery services at their Phoenix, Arizona facility.
Upon the purchase of a new LED-UV press, CanDo Printing converted to Fujifilm’s SUPERIA ZD no-process thermal plate technology, and the Blankenship brothers have no regrets; believing this innovative low-energy curable technology is ‘the wave of the future.’ As a true no-process thermal plate, with no effluent to dispose of, and no additional consumables to contend with, SUPERIA ZD is an environmentally friendly option.
“We utilize around 1,500 plates per month,” said Kyl Blankenship, production manager. “With Fujifilm’s no-process thermal plate technology we do not have chemicals going down the drain, which is good for the environment, and enhances our bottom-line because we don’t have the need to purchase costly chemicals. SUPERIA ZD provides superior performance and definitely saves us money.”
Blankenship’s previous plates would start to breakdown approaching 6,000 impressions. With SUPERIA ZD ‘consistency and ease of use are key,’ and he has not experienced any production issues.
“When moving our previous plates from the plate room to the press room, which is normal handling, they would scratch,” says Blankenship. “We would be re-making plates on a daily basis. The SUPERIA ZD plates are much more durable. In the past two years, we have not had to pull a plate; the lifetime of the SUPERIA ZD plate is impressive.”
SUPERIA ZD offers improved durability for longer run length capability on-press that enables the plate to be used in a wider range of press applications, including impressive durability within UV print applications. The true no-process technology allows that plate to be imaged and mounted directly on the press, for immediate use.  
SUPERIA ZD performance is maximized with FUJIFILM HUNT premium fountain solutions, including SUPERIA PressMax JRDC , compatible with UV/LED-UV/H-UV or conventional inks; along with the single-step SUPERIA PressMax PPF-DC, a versatile fountain solution with calcium control additive, also suitable for UV/LED-UV/H-UV or conventional inks. ​
“I highly recommend SUPERIA ZD to anyone running conventional or any type of UV press,” concludes Blankenship. “This technology is a great fit with our LED-UV press.”
