Our Technology

Mercury strives to be at the cutting edge of Graphics Arts technology. For years we’ve participated in alpha, beta and, early customer acceptance tests from our top tier vendors. They appreciate the feedback, and we appreciate the opportunity to test drive a technology ahead of our competition.

While many traditional printing companies have been remaking themselves into Marketing Service Providers, we’ve focused on how we can use modern technology to enable our core business… print. Print is boring you say. It’s a commodity, anyone can do it. That might be true to some, but not printing geeks like us. Don’t get us wrong, if you need a Website, eCommerce solution supporting variable & static products, or a cross-media pURL campaign we can handle it. Where our technology really shines is in solving our customer’s most challenging procurement, or turn-around-time demands. We’ve spent the last 8 years developing an application that allows our customers to deeply integrate with our automation systems. When they submit an order, it’s on the Production floor, ready to print in as little as 5 minutes!

You need some special skills to to keep an Ink Jet printer that gobbles up 600 ft of paper in a minute from going hungry. We affectionately call our Kodak Prosper 5000 XLi Presses “Hungry Beasts” and for good reason. The Prosper is one of the most advanced printing presses ever built.

Network

We house nearly 400 TB of data storage for our customers. Our datacenter is protected by Enterprise Class Network and Physical Security. In addition to Intrusion Prevention, we’re also protected by a Novec 1230 fire suppression system. This system will extinguish a fire without damaging the electrical components in our Data Center.

Speaking of the Data Center, it was purpose-built from the ground up. We literally started with a “green field” and installed the infrastructure that we know will be the nerve center for our company and its solutions for years to come. We have room for 1000’s of servers in our “cold aisle”. Dedicated and redundant cooling and 30,000 VA of battery backup keep quiet watch over everything day and night.


  • 100Mb Full Duplex Internet
  • Voice T-1 connection
  • Sonicwall E5500 Firewall
  • HP 1000 base-T Network Switches
  • Cat6 Ethernet network
  • 62.5/125 um Fiber Optic 10 Gb Network Uplinks

3D Printing

We’ve begun to experiment with bringing 3D printing to our customers. We can take custom designs, or develop them internally using materials ranging from PLA, Nylon, Carbon Fiber, or Stainless Steel.

This takes professional software tools and engineering skills. Not something you’ll find at the local Copy Shop.
