About Gustavo Baner, CEO
Gustavo Baner has covered different positions with the company since around 2004. The first responsibility was as an Operations Manager.
An opportunity to move to the US and become part of a company in the manufacturing arena was very exciting to him, and as a matter of fact, he was able to become the leading force in the company and make this project his family's American Dream.
Gustavo is a trained and experienced engineer who graduated at the "Universidad de Buenos Aires", in Argentina. He became a graduate student after many years of hands-on experience in the plastics manufacturing industry and printing, and became an MBA at the prestigious DiTella University, in Argentina, as well.
The experience that Gustavo gained as a production manager in a film-extrusion plastic company and flexo printing, operating in a 24/7, helped him develop strong skills in operations, problem-solving, leadership, and quality processes.
When Gustavo was introduced into Mark V Press, the company was operating under the "Mark V Press" brand. Digital printing technology and the ubiquity of internet services became a new opportunity for growth. That is when the ColorCopiesUSA.com brand was launched. E-commerce and web-page presence has evolved since then and ColorCopiesUSA.com has always pioneered the new technologies.
ColorCopiesUSA.com has evolved significantly into a modern printing company, servicing the whole USA from its headquarters located in Fort Lauderdale - Oakland Park, Broward County, in the State of Florida. The products and services that ColorCopiesUSA helps clients with are: Graphic design, offset printing, digital toner-based printing, finishing, coatings, and binding.
A full new area of business was added at around 2010, when large format printing (meaning signs, posters, booth, frames) where produced with the highest quality levels.
In the early days when Mark V Press/Color Copies USA started operating, offset printing was the technology that dominated the industry, and full-color printing was still shy compared with one-or-two printing colors.
The creative concepts, the software to support a creative process, and the production equipment have evolved tremendously in the last 15 years. The consolidation of the digital-internet world has further introduced complexity in the way in which messages are generated and shared with peers, the community, and clients.
About the evolution of the printing industry since the late '90s
Except for the slow digital printing equipment that started developing in the mid-'90s, the whole world's printing companies operated using massive analog and mechanical machines.
The concepts of personalization and variable data printing were part of the think-tank environment and futuristic views of the economy.
Utilities and other large corporations had been able to print statements for the transactional world for some time, but on very strict limits on what was possible.
At that time, in one of the most renowned world printing trade shows, Drupa, the concept of more flexible variable-data printing started to enter the commercial side of the market.
As with any new technology, it takes time to perfect them and time for the industry-players to figure out how to add value to clients through the use of these new technologies.
The printing industry overall had been experiencing in the '80s a time of growth and success that was possible with the introduction of modern lithography
