Industry Publications and Print Providers Agree—Versant Delivers a Competitive Advantage

“This press has it all-maximizing automation when printing brochures, improving print quality to a new level and setting color easily between jobs with virtually no human hand.” Daniel Pelikán Pelikán Daniel (Pardubice, Czech Republic)
“The truth is this press is a money maker and, to boot, my staff tells me it is a pleasure to operate.” Dennis Beck Minuteman Press (North Palm Beach, FL)
