King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies switches to digital printing

The King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies in Saudi Arabia has transformed its offset printing press into a fully integrated digital printing press by investing in Canon digital printing solutions – the imagePress C800; Océ VarioPrint 6000; and Océ Prisma prepare.

“As an organisation that has always heavily relied on offset as a medium for printing, moving to digital was a huge step for us as it meant a significant change in our business model,” said Ibrahim Mohamed Hassanien, account manager at King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies.

“The time-consuming process of making and mounting offset plates, and the makeready involved in getting the job right, was simply not cost effective for short runs. Digital print, on the other hand, had the potential to reduce our costs significantly. By producing shorter, more targeted runs, the potential for returns would be lowered dramatically.  We knew that digital would also open up creative opportunities for in-line customization, personalization, and real-time marketing activities such as cross-selling or promotional material inclusion,” added Ibrahim.

Founded in 1983, the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies Center provides a variety of services in line with the vision for the King Faisal Foundation. The center aims to support research and studies and develop a vision for the deployment of King Faisal – expanding the horizon of knowledge about topics related to Islamic studies, politics, sociology and inheritance.

The center includes a central printing press to print a variety of materials including publications, and brochures for distribution on a global level.
