- About Cushing
You might think of the famous quote “Bond, James Bond” when you hear the term bond. Fortunately, this is not a top-secret type of printing.
In fact, bond printing is the modern day digital blueprint, replacing the traditional blue & white drawing set that contractors, architects and engineers over the age of thirty-five might recall. Diazo prints were dry, ammonia developed blue lines on white backdrop, which replaced the old blueprint process. They actually used a wet process and rapid drying to present the white line, blue back drop drawings that so many people picture in their heads when they use that term blue print.
Bond printing refers to the type of paper we literally print to, in this case, 20 pound bond paper. This is used to produce your drawing sets on our Oce plotters, or our newest HP PageWide 8000 XL printer. We can print a few sheets, or a few hundred for you.
Cushing is the largest downtown provider of construction document printing and has been for several years. We were the first to adopt CAD Plotting services and digital document services to manage projects electronically using our DFS Document Fulfillment Service on line tools.
“My experience with Cushing is that the service has been beyond expected, orders get delivered ahead of schedule. Also the delivery personnel are always friendly.”
On our busiest days, we process well over 200 requests. Imagine trying to get it right 1,000 times per week without a system. Cushing recognized the need for repeatable, reliable systems in place to process dozens of small orders in a hurry, each day.
Our privately developed Job Order Detail Interface (JODI) is used throughout each day, whether we are here to physically accept your orders or not. JODI is used to accept your order details, attach and store uploaded drawings and all your information: time due, project numbers, your comments, requests for split deliveries, binding or package labeling.
The system allows us to electronically proof your orders before printing and a printed job manifest is carried through the final proof of your order before shipping. All of the data you provide is included through the final invoicing which also comes out of JODI, into our accounting system.
Meanwhile, we recruit and train the most responsive people our industry has. Many people ask if the responses they get from our employees are computer generated, but we are delighted to reply that the order system responds once, to tell you your order has been processed, and the rest is us!!!
You know any detail oriented, multi-tasking people who get a charge out of making things happen? Send them to our HR Department.
“For a long time, I used to question my rep about Carolyn and Sarah. I thought that the responses to my e-mails were literally the computer system responding to me. Then I realized I was talking to a human being, getting back to me faster than I could even type! I love Carolyn and the Cushing team!”
