       Why would this be a good investment for my company?  
      Digital Color Printing is a fast growing market and 95% of the documents that come off the color printer will need some type of finishing whether it's cutting, slitting or even creasing.

      You can program up to 15 cuts horizontally, 10 creases horizontally and 6 slits vertically with the purchase of the optional business card module.  
       
       Why would you need to crease a document?  
      For paper stock heavier than 80 lbs., you will need to crease the document prior to folding due to toner cracking on solid, toner-based digital color documents.  
       
       What is the maximum sheet size it will handle and up to what type of paper stock?
