OPEN AND READY TO SERVE DURING COVID CRISIS
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting all aspects of our daily lives. PCS is taking every precaution to protect our employees, customers, partners, and the communities we all live in to be healthy and safe.
At PCS we are emphasizing the importance of following the guidelines and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) for reducing the spread of COVID-19. This includes:
• Providing all staff with information about the basic steps to reduce spreading the virus, including hand washing and social distancing as referenced by the CDC.
• Sanitizing and disinfecting our facilities and equipment, including all copiers when on-site.
PCS is focused on providing the high quality service you expect in a clean and safe manner. Should you feel the need to clean your office equipment, we recommend cleaning the outside covers with a non-static lint free cloth. A disinfectant can be used, but DO NOT spray directly on the device’s surfaces or components, as getting liquid inside the device can damage the internal components. If using an aerosol, move away from the device and only spray on the cloth.
At this time our main facility located at 2474 Old Ivy Road will remain open as will our copy center in the hospital. To help protect and reduce exposure to our staff the doors will be locked. If you need to drop off a job at Old Ivy, please call 924-0517. To drop off a job at the hospital copy center, please call 924-5681. Please try to call at least thirty minutes ahead so we can greet you and open the door. The PCS Help Desk and our service and supply team are still operating as normal to keep your office equipment fully operational. Our service and supply vendors do not anticipate significant disruptions to the supply chain in the short-term and are working on a longer term plan to minimize potential delays in the coming months.
PCS values and appreciates your understanding and continued support during this time.
NEW PRESS ON LINE
All units are rolling on our new Heidelberg eight-unit perfecting offset press! “Perfecting” describes this press’s ability to print one side of the sheet and then the other all in one pass. When the sheet comes off the press both sides have been printed and it is ready to be folded and bound. This speeds up production, reduces press usage, and gives UVAPrint the ability to print a full eight standard pages at one time. Printing eight pages at once has traditionally required a much larger press. An additional unit allows addition of aqueous coatings to provide protection and special effects to your printed pieces. Improved ink control systems ensure the highest degree of color accuracy, an important capability working in a brand-centered environment. Production manager John Greenwood, UVAPrint director Kelly Hogg, and sales representative Josef Beery are ready to assist you with your print needs. Their decades of experience printing in the commercial world allows UVA’s in-house printing facility to match the prices and quality of private vendors while allowing us to concentrate our energies on UVA’s special needs with out the distractions of competing customers.
