Servico – Keeping Printing Businesses Running 24/7

For many years Servico has provided unequalled service to the Print Industry. Printing Houses running Offset and Digital equipment around the clock can simply not afford down time because a component machine or piece of equipment fails. With planned maintenance, the right equipment selection and timely repairs, this doesn’t happen. Not on Servico’s watch anyway.

The Print Industry require a broad range of equipment. Collators, Paper Drills, Guillotines, Booklet Makers and Staplers are all vital pieces of equipment when producing catalogues, manuals, training material and promotional packages.

Add to this Paper Folding Machines, Cutters, Creasers, Trimmers and Perforators, then Laminators and Binding Machines and it means Print Businesses have a formidable range of equipment to maintain. When print runs reach the hundreds of thousands, stopping for running repairs is not a healthy option. But if this does happen, rest assured, a call to Servico will be given a prompt response with a quick turnaround assured based on Servico’s access to a full range of branded parts and equipment from a wide selection of suppliers.



Servico service and have access to a full range of parts and equipment for print format equipment from leading brands such as Duplo, Nagel, Rapid, Stago, Plockmatic, Superfax, Uchida, Dumor, Ideal, Neopost, EBA and Morgana.

Servico service the Greater Metropolitan Melbourne area and by pre-arrangement near regional cities and towns.

No more downtime! Otherwise simply leave your details here and our friendly staff will arrange a callback or meeting at your convenience.

Back to Work – Start the Year with a real Flyer

The holidays for many are over either this week or next week. Back to work and yes it is a bit quiet. So it’s time to let your customers and clients know you’re back with a great offer or a reminder of your services.

The office staff all say ‘What about an email blast?’. To which you should say ‘That’s so 2010!’

Why? Because 99% of businesses these days operate with ‘Spam Filters’, ‘Clutter’ files on Microsoft Outlook or Cloud pages that filter out advertising material. And then often, promotional emails will be labelled junk because the copy includes images – jpegs, gifs or pngs.


The best option is a quick and effective mail-out using your business’s in-house capability. Create your high resolution, coloured Flyer. Prepare your envelopes with address labels. Create a personal addressed cover letter. Fold all items (need a folding machine? Contact Servico) for delivery, stuff the envelopes and deliver to the Post Office for dispatch.

Offer some form of encouragement – a discount, a new product, a new service, or simply a recognition of your business valuing its customers – individually.

Either way, incorporate a ‘call to action’ and an ‘offer’. This is a marketing exercise and essentially it’s communication with your client base that maintains and enhances your business relationship and activity.


Create a similar campaign on Social Media, but remember – Facebook dislikes reams of text. Ensure that your website reflects your offer and call to action.

And remember, your brand is only as good as the last interaction you and your client have experienced. Keep an eye on Google reviews, Facebook reviews and comments and similar public or open comment forums. Don’t be too panicked by negative input. No-one expects a business to be perfect. But it’s really important that your business is responsive – and seen to be responsive! Deal with such postings and restore your customer relations with those clients that are unhappy.


Stay tuned, the new shopping cart is well underway and should be operational this month. Til next week – have a great week and – welcome back.

The Office Mailout – Make it easy with Servico

It’s a familiar scene. Time for the annual mailout. Or the term mailout. It’s done via the post. Why? Because now an addressed letter via ‘snailmail’ has more chance of reaching your intended recipient than an unsolicited email which will be stopped at Cloud level or be sidelined to Junk or Clutter in their email inbox. Stringent privacy regulations have ensured this. If you or your business are not currently on the recipients email database – you will not reach them via email.

So it’s a big event. Staff come in on a Saturday morning. Letters are to be folded, envelopes prepared with stickers – addresses and return addresses. Brochures and letters stuffed into envelopes and the finished mail-out boxed and ready fort the Post Office. Leaflets and letters have been printed at the local print shop.

Let’s make this a lot easier. No need for a Saturday Barbecue and staff giving up their time. First either print in house and then fold, or have a print shop print and fold. Get your envelopes prepared with a third party supplier with your return address printed on the envelope. Set up your printer to produce address labels from a database of all recipients.

You need:

  • Colour Printer
  • Folding Machine
  • Envelopes
  • Labels – using Mail Merge
  • Brochure

There are a number of Folding Machines suitable for this task available through Servico. The Superfax PF340 is a good starting point according to Manager Phil Milides.

If you choose to produce your flier or brochure ‘in house’ consider the range of Paper Guillotines, Trimmers and other items available through Servico. These include Business Card Cutters, Creaser Folders, Creaser Perforators, Booklet Makers and other products. Make it quick, reliable and easy – no labour intensive Saturdays wasting your time anymore. Finally you must get rid of the excess material or older out of date printer matter. Time for Shredders – Kobra, Intimus, Fellowes, Ideal – for large or small units and applications. All provide efficient and reliable service.

Managing the Risk and Compliance of your School’s Providers of On-site Goods or Services (POGS) and Contractors

SAM4Schools is a secure, online Risk and Compliance Management System that benefits schools and their providers of on-site goods or services (POGS) / contractors.
Our system provides the framework to establish and maintain an up-to-date Compliance Register for every provider of on-site goods or services (POGS) and contractors to a school.  This enables a school to meet its workplace obligations and comply with current legislation, while providing their legal duty of care.

SAM4Schools streamlines compliance and reporting procedures, and greatly assists those responsible for the workplace health and safety of their school, such as:  principals, assistant principals, business managers and leadership team members responsible for budgets, facilities and purchasing.

A school culture that values compliance and governance is the key to delivering trust and integrity. Building and maintaining this culture casts a protective net over your staff and students while satisfying legal requirements.
The school education framework in Australia is undergoing critical change, resulting in increasing pressure for schools to educate students while negotiating constant shifts in legislative, fiscal and economic requirements. Such challenges create greater expectations on your compliance and risk processes to protect your school from harm.
Risks are events, situations or circumstances that may lead to negative consequences for your school. Appropriate risk management strategies can minimise costly and stressful problems, and may also reduce insurance claims and premiums.

Digital Printing on Glass – on the world’s biggest Digital Printer!

Dip-Tech, known for its innovative printed glass designs, is now in the Guinness record books

The world’s authority on world records, Guinness, has awarded an Israeli company a record for the world’s largest digital printer. That winner — Kfar Sava-based Dip-Tech, which does digital printing on glass and ceramics, often in huge displays.

The Dip-Tech AR18000 printer can print a single pane of glass with a total area of up to 64 meters square (690 feet square). There are only two such printers in the world. Made in Israel, the Dip-Tech printers are owned and operated by sedak GmbH & Co. KG of Germany and Tianjin Northglass Industrial Co., Ltd in China. The Guinness World Records organization, which has been the acknowledged arbiter on the world’s biggest and best since 1955, presented Dip-Tech with the award last week.

Dip-Tech has always been an aficionado of big printers. Using large-size printers is the only way to produce the artful designs and images the company has become known for. Dip-Tech’s methods have been used to design malls, hospitals, office buildings, and universities around the world – bringing a touch of the magic of printed glass, which looks similar to stained glass, to a new generation.

Digital glass printing works the same as digital paper printing: An image is sent to the printer, which then gets transferred into the glass. The system is actually a bit more involved, because after the printing, the glass must be dried, and then tempered in a furnace.

Dip-Tech’s digital printing solution includes special inks the company has developed, said Tevet. The digital ceramic inks are made out of nano particles of glass and inorganic pigments, with the ink infused into the glass by the end of the process. After the tempering process, the ink becomes a part of the glass, meaning that it can stand up to any weather and environment conditions without fading. “Our printing solution allows the user to print a wide scale of colors, all in one pass. This is an exceptional capability when it comes to glass,” which usually requires much more intensive processing, said Shlomit Niva Tevet, Dip-Tech’s Director of Marketing.

Besides producing printed glass for aesthetic purposes, printed glass can be used for other functions – such as controlling sunlight through car windshields to prevent too much heat from coming through as the sun shines through the glass. Dip-Tech’s unique inks, said Tevet, can do that, too: “We are the only company in the world to produce ceramic ink with so many color possibilities for digital printed glass.” In addition, Tevet said, “our printing solution provides the accuracy – and color matching capabilities – that meet up to the severe standards of professionals in the industry.”

Dip-Tech’s glass can be seen in many places, like Chicago O’Hare International Airport’s newly refurbished Terminal 5, where the company produced a 4,000 square foot (370 square meter) “curtain” of digital ceramic printed glass designed to make the experience of going through security checkpoints more pleasant and aesthetic, along with beautifying the entire terminal, said Greg Saroka, president of Goldray Industries, the architecture firm that worked on the terminal. “We worked through all the various color and design options until one met all expectations. Using the Dip-Tech solution, we were then able to fabricate this highly comprehensive, detailed project exactly how it was conceptualized and drawn by the architects,” he said.

Dip-Tech glass is also on display in the facade of Harlem Hospital in New York City. The building was refurbished several years ago, and to strike a dramatic note, the exterior of the building was decorated with a glass mural facade, duplicating works of art that depict the struggle of southern US slaves for freedom. The glass was made to specifications by manufacturer PPG Industries of Pittsburgh — using Dip-Tech’s equipment. The result: A set of murals that appear painted into the windows, with 429 individually printed panes of glass giving viewers a lesson in history and an appreciation of art — and the building has become a tourist attraction.

CEO Yariv Matzliach announced the record at the glasstec 2014 show, which took place in Dusseldorf, Germany this week. Commenting on the Guinness award, he said, “It is a great honor for Dip-Tech to join the elite group of achievers named as World Record title holders. We share our celebration with sedak and Tianjin Northglass, the pioneering first users of these record-breaking printers.”
