Real-World Feedback on the Xerox iGen 5 Press: Advanced Automation, 5th Print Station, Ultimate Configurability
The Xerox iGen 5 Press has many great qualities, including advanced automation, a fifth print station, exceptional image quality, application flexibility and a configurable platform. These features come up time and again when our customers talk about their love for the iGen 5. Learning from other print providers’ successes can help you decide if the iGen 5 is right for your business.
Higher Quality and Larger Sheet Size
“We use iGen for our higher quality digital jobs. It runs closest to litho quality and we love the capability for the larger sheet size!” Davina Marina Digital Manager Marina Graphic (Hawthorne, California)
Utilising Longer Sheet Sizes with the iGen 5
“We like using the press for its functionality and the ability to print up to 26" (660mm) sheet size.”
John Cossin Small Format Manager Thomas Printworks (Houston, Texas)
Quality + Versatility
"Our clients are artists. Think flawless, vibrant colour on highly textured paper. Our iGens give us the quality + versatility that our creatives require, and we love them for that!" Rebecca Navagh Marketing & Creative Director Catprint (Fairport, NY)
Significant Advantage with iGen 5 White
“We wanted to enhance our offerings with the CMYK+ options by adding the white to the iGen. We have loved our iGens and with the new upgrade we get a significant advantage when compared with our competition.”
Ramon Olivo Digital Department Manager Thomas Graphics (Austin, Texas)
iGen 5 adds to our capabilities and effectiveness for our clients
“We love the new iGen 5 with its 5th color station and the added thick stock kit. For short run digital packaging, we can offer our clients the option for producing small quantities on substrates up to 24 Pt at an economical price. The 5th station allows us to add features like spot clear or additional colors for a larger color gamut as added value and to simulate larger runs on larger offset equipment.”
Thomas Moe CEO Daily Printing (Plymouth, MN)
“As the economy opens up, we need to provide high levels of service, flexibility and quality to our clients. With the new Xerox iGen 5, we are not only meeting but exceeding these demands.”
Chris Blissett Managing Director Blissetts (Brentford, England)
Leading Provider of Admission Tickets
“At WW&L we specialize in printing tickets for major events. Our goal is to provide our customers with an experience they will never forget. Tickets no longer serve as just admission; they are long lasting and become memorabilia that the ticket holder will keep for many years. We have (4) iGens that print high-quality, color intensive and personalized season tickets with security features built in. But it doesn’t stop there — we also offer custom parking permits and decals.”
Cap Vick VP of Operations WW&L (Fort Smith, AR)
For a world-class manufacturer like Kohler, quality is everything.
“Marketing materials need to match the product that they’re trying to sell. So the higher the quality of our marketing touch point, the more we’re demonstrating to potential customers the quality that they’ll receive from our products. Our new Xerox iGen 5 digital presses, each with the 26˝ sheet option, and one with extra feeder drawers, now provide offset quality, allowing our in-plant to pull in more work that had been going to outside printers.”
Christopher Donlon Associate Communications Manager Kohler Printing Services (Kohler, Wisconsin)
Productive and Cost Effective
Our main business is books and we produce a lot of them. In Finland, B5 is a popular format for perfect bound books and the iGen is unbeatable with this. We now impose and print B5 book blocks 4-up on a 360 x 520 mm sheet. This is productive and cost-effective. In addition to books, our customers buy all kinds of marketing material such as cards, brochures and posters. For brochures, the new clear toner has been a very nice addition.
Petri Lehtonen Sales Manager Printek (Keuruu, Finland)
Terrific images and text
"In addition to some very cool hiding spots for my stuff, our iGen5 delivers terrific images and text, at amazingly great RIP and production speeds – reliability and speed that have changed our production cycles in a great way. And white on black, instead of black on white… that’s another WOW! Brian’s Happy. Mikey, did you hear that – 'Brian’s Happy'."
Brian Greenspan President WAM Interactive Information (Ontario, Canada)
Minimal guesswork, maximum productivity
We’re able to achieve optimal quality for books and brochures while remaining competitive in this price-driven market. We depend on iGen’s built-in automation technologies to minimize guesswork and maximize productivity.
Jim Corliss Owner Braintree Printing (Braintree, Massachusetts)
The extended gamut is a game-changer
“The gamut extension colors were a big deal. Especially the orange. Orange is our national color in the Netherlands. Our customers love the orange— especially if they can personalize with it. That’s a real add-on.”
Jeroen van Druenen CEO Jubels (Amsterdam, Netherlands) See more on Jubels’s success with gamut extension colors
This press saves money
“If someone would have told me how much money I’d be saving each month using the Xerox iGen 5 Press, I wouldn’t have believed it. In the year Barrington Press has owned its iGen 5, the company has saved $10,000 - $15,000 per month and has created new opportunities for growth.”
Paul Ramirez President Barrington Press (Paramus, New Jersey) See more on Barrington Press’s success with iGen 5
Opened up new business opportunities
“The gamut extension (green/blue/orange) helps us achieve all of our desired Pantone colors. Also, thanks to the large sheet size (364x660mm), Biella is able to be much more flexible when it comes to ring-binder and folder production in small and large quantities. We are convinced about the robustness and reliability of this press and we are already operating it in two shifts!”
Kasami Ganimete Head of Sales Individual Products Biella Schweiz AG (Brügg, Switzerland)
A reliable workhorse
“The iGen 5 is the perfect complement for offset printing, which we also offer in-house. Jobs which would run uneconomically in offset but require the matte finish are perfect for this press. Our iGen5 is impressing us every single day when it comes to printing challenging substrates.”
Maik Sättli Digital Print Operator Mattenbach AG (Winterthur, Switzerland)
This press keeps our customers happy
“We purchased our first iGen in 1998 and have been sold on their speed, quality and reliability ever since. With the larger sheet size and the extra paper module we added we’ve been able to save set-up time, keep up with the faster unit and keep our customers happy. When our customers are happy, we’re happy.”
W.P. Ward Owner FlexPress (Dallas, Texas)
Giving our customers what they want
"Being the only commercial printing service in the state of Georgia to offer White Dry Ink, Clear Dry Ink and the 5th color using the Xerox iGen 5 Press gives us a distinct advantage. Our customers love the flexibility, accuracy and quality we offer them."
David Van Dyke President Piedmont Graphics (Marietta, Georgia)
Gives our customers new opportunities
"A number of our customers are designers who expect high quality custom printing, and they really appreciate the 5th color option. In addition, printing on larger sheet sizes enables us to pass along savings to our customers."
Eric Godwin Customer Service PGprint.com (Marietta, Georgia)
"The print quality and consistency is of utmost importance to us at Printpac ME. With the additional Blue, Orange, and Green colors the iGen 5 has greatly helped us achieve the demand from our customers for matching corporate brand guidelines. Moreover, the ability to print on thicker substrates and feed large sheets are an added advantage. Clients are delighted with the excellent print results on uncoated and textured paper achieved by the iGen 5."
Irfan Farid General Manager PrintPac ME (DPC Dubai, United Arab Emirates)
Offering our customers more
“Cooperation with Xerox is more than customer experience, it is a partnership we rely on. We like to offer our customers something more. With the Xerox iGen and Xerox FreeFlow Core automation we can do that.”
Aleš Veselý Sales Director Indigo Print (Czech Republic)
Reliable and fast printing solutions

We recently upgraded from the iGen3 to the iGen 5 so that we can offer advanced printing solutions to our customers. With the help of my partners, Xerox, and the iGen platform itself, we are now able to offer reliable and fast printing solutions to the local market."
Alexandros Lambrianidis, Print Production Manager LK Printing (Thessaloniki, Greece)
