Sacramento, CA – Big, bold and new! Dome comes full circle with their strategic plan to revolutionize their business including a new face on their brand identity. Dome has a 103-year history and there are bound to be changes in such a great time span.

Since 1914, Dome has remained relevant by evolving with the market; from engraving to commercial lithography, and beyond. “Removing “printing” from our name and giving a fresh new look to our logo signifies the continuous evolution of our brand. The products and services that we offer today cannot be simply put into a box or just be about print,” remarks Tim Poole, CEO and Partner.

As previously announced, Dome is merging their five facilities and expanding into a newly renovated 320,000 square foot operation in Sacramento’s McClellan Park. “We felt the move was the perfect opportunity for a refresh,” states Bob Poole, CMO and Partner. “Our marketing team has performed a masterful facelift on our branding that reflects the bold moves we are making. Bold as in color, having a strong and vivid appearance, but also bold meaning, confident and courageous. That speaks for itself.”

“A new logo is a sure way to show the world we are making serious changes,” affirms Misha Pavlov, Dome’s President. “Since the beginning of the year it has been our goal to revolutionize Dome, and lead the market. Our new logo is an outward representation of what we’re doing inside our business. Big, bold, new, and ready to dominate.”

Dome history: Founded as Dome Engraving by Byron Dome in 1914, Dome was a trade house supplying engravings for the local printers and newspapers. Ray and Arlene Poole purchased the company in 1969 and recognizing the potential in commercial lithography, they shifted the focus to offset printing to form Dome Printing and Lithograph.

Sacramento, CA –The bold moves keep coming as DOME builds a bindery to rival their newly equipped offset and digital press rooms. On the heels of this month’s addition of two HP Indigo 12000 presses to the digital press fleet and March’s announcement of the KBA Rapida 205 and 106 offset presses, DOME is partnering once again with Muller Martini to add to its powerhouse production facility.

Muller’s Primera MC is an advanced and highly efficient saddle stitcher for the state-of-the-art super facility. Its innovative Motion Control technology dramatically reduces setup times, and the result is a highly efficient saddle stitcher perfectly designed for today’s fast-paced, high quality, demanding projects.

“The Primera MC will deliver increased capacity and improved capability to our finishing department. The efficiencies of this stitcher are important for the production of small to medium offset projects and uber critical where digital print is concerned. This investment allows us to keep up with the output of our two new HP 12000s, which are installing as we speak,” remarks Misha Pavlov, Dome’s President.

Added Andy Fetherman, Muller Martini’s Vice President of Sales and Technology,

“It’s always exciting to partner with companies that are providing a true competitive edge. Dome’s continued investment in both equipment and technology underscores their commitment to their customers. We’re proud to be a part of their growth.”

The Primera MC will be delivered to Dome’s new 320,000 square facility that will be in full production by the end of 2017. “This is another acquisition that is in alignment with our core strategic initiatives. We have the right location and we are making the right equipment choices to continue to streamline, be more efficient and drive our costs down,” states Tim Poole, Owner and CEO. “Each step we take is helping us to expand into exciting new markets, while offering current clients amazing benefits,” concludes Bob Poole, Owner and CMO.

Sacramento, CA – In a year of bold moves for DOME, this is the next great addition! DOME is welcoming two HP Indigo 12000 presses. The 29 inch HP Indigo 12000 Digital Press produces the widest commercial application range with superior print quality, high productivity, and wide versatility. The HP Indigo 12000 is capable of 3,450 4/0 20”x29” sheets per hour of 50# text up to 18pt.

“This is another critical piece of our strategic plan to revolutionize DOME, and lead our market. The investment will drive sales by bringing greater capacity and new capabilities to our customers, while continuing to expand our relationship with HP. You can’t put together an unparalleled powerhouse offset pressroom like we have, and not complement it by bringing in these two darlings to bolster our digital offering,” states Misha Pavlov, DOME’s President.

Although the newly added KBA presses will deliver direct to DOME’s new 320,000 square foot facility, the two HPs are needed immediately and will be delivered to DOME’s current main facility in Sacramento on July 17th , and will be operating by the end of the month.

Owners Tim and Bob Poole detailed, “The HPs expanded substrate capability offers direct printing on canvas, plastics, paperboard, synthetics and metalized substrates, which will benefit our retail and packaging clients, while the larger 29” sheet size will benefit our direct mail clients with more pages of variable data messaging. This press makes perfect sense for us.”

DOME values their HP relationship and appreciates the comments from Haim Levit, VP & GM, Indigo & Inkjet Press Solutions, Americas, HP Inc., “Utilizing their vast horsepower and extensive capabilities, DOME is recognized as the single-source leader to delivering results to clients. With the addition of not one, but two HP Indigo 12000’s to their arsenal, they continue to lead the way with the highest-quality and largest-format sheetfed offering, but now with the added advantages and versatility that only the larger 29” digital print delivers. We look forward to our continued partnership with DOME, helping them meet production goals and customer expectations, both now and into the future.”

Sacramento, CA – DOME is embarking on a momentous transition that will consolidate their five facilities and merge the now 280,000 total square feet of production into one location. DOME will expand into a newly renovated 320,000 square foot facility in Sacramento’s McClellan Park.

“McClellan Park is excited to welcome DOME into our growing tenant roster. The buildings are structurally very well suited for DOME’s operations. We’re glad that we are able to accommodate DOME’s growth.” Ken Giannotti, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Leasing stated.

This move is the principal piece of an aggressive growth strategy outlined by DOME’s executive team. A previous announcement regarding DOME’s purchase of two KBA Rapida presses was the first step in DOME’s core strategic initiative to position their business to provide not only the highest quality products, but continue to drive down costs by being the most efficient printing facility in the market.

Misha Pavlov, DOME’s President, announced to their 250 employees, “This move will literally change the face of who we are. DOME is a great company and we are on a new trajectory to be world class. Consolidating into a single super facility will make DOME more efficient, while expanding our current capabilities.” Misha’s vision is unmistakable, “This is an electrifying transition that will be completed by the end of 2017 and it will strategically position us to grow exponentially and drastically expand our client base.”

The executive team researched and weighed all the options including looking at out-of-state possibilities. “McClellan Park is the perfect location for us to consolidate into one space, but more than that it allows us to stay in Sacramento where our roots are and where a majority of our family of employees live,” commented Bob Poole, CMO and Owner. DOME has a long history in Sacramento, beginning in 1914 as an engraving company, followed by the Poole family purchasing the business in 1969. CEO and Owner Tim Poole stated, “The opportunity we found at McClellan Park was extremely compelling and we are excited to commit a significant capital investment in our business; for our employees, and for our community.”

For Immediate Release, March 29, 2017

Las Vegas, NV and Sacramento, CA – DOME is excited to announce a partnership with KBA that brings the KBA Rapida 205, 81 inch and the Rapida 106, 41 inch UV perfector to their growing operation. With these purchases DOME is taking a bold step into the world of superlarge format and super speed sheetfed offset printing.  Misha Pavlov, DOME’s President explains, “The KBA Rapida 205’s XXL sheet size with 5-color UV printing, on substrates up to 48 points at 9,000 sheets per hour is the perfect addition to our business. This is a game-changer for Northern California, Oregon, Northern Nevada, and Washington, enabling DOME to serve customers and prospects in these markets better than anyone, as this is the only 81 inch press in the area. The Rapida 106, 10 color UV perfecting press allows us to do what we already do so well, but better and faster. Who doesn’t love that?”

The superlarge format Rapida gives DOME the versatility and speed that is essential to the in-store signage and display segments of retail marketing. The Rapida 106 is a 10 color, double coater, full-interdeck UV press, which makes ready all 10 colors in 60 seconds, and runs at 15,000 (perfecting) to 18,000 sheets (straight) per hour. This fully loaded press will bring increased quality, efficiency and greater productivity while offering high-end applications previously not offered in-house.

These new presses will be up and running by the end of this year and will not only enhance services to existing clients but open doors to new verticals. Tim Poole, DOME’s CEO and Partner states, “The new press acquisitions are in alignment with DOME’s core strategic initiatives. We are positioning ourselves to provide not only the highest quality products to our clients, but continue to drive down our cost by being the most efficient printing facility in the US market.”

The signing of the agreements happened in Las Vegas at the GlobalShop 2017 Store Design, Planning and Merchandising Expo. “Everything came together and we are here at GlobalShop, which is the world’s largest annual show for retail experts,” says Bob Poole, DOME CMO and Partner, “and this is the place to share our big news. Our retail clients are here and the enlarged print format of the 81 inch and the versatility of the 10 color adds creative options to their display designers.”

Sherwin Poorsina, EVP Sales affirms, “DOME continues to differentiate itself in our industry by offering software solutions to our retail clients, broad product lines, and a customer-centric culture.

DOME Print and Marketing Solutions Installs EFI’s Two Newest VUTEk Production Inkjet Printers

FREMONT, California — July 27, 2016 — DOME Print and Marketing Solutions is meeting rising demand for high-quality, superwide-format inkjet graphics with a pair of strategic investments in its new manufacturing facility. DOME, which is one of Northern California’s leading independent commercial print businesses, has upgraded its superwide-format inkjet production operations, becoming one of the first on the West Coast to install an EFI™ VUTEk® HS125 Pro hybrid roll/flatbed inkjet press and an EFI VUTEk LX3 Pro hybrid LED inkjet printer.

Based in Sacramento, Calif., DOME is a family-owned business with a diverse customer base that includes many well-known retail brands. The new EFI VUTEk installations will provide the upgraded speed and quality the company needs to produce a growing volume of indoor signage with tight turnaround times.

“Our single largest growth area is in retail,” said Bob Poole, DOME’s chief marketing officer. “And our technology investment with the new VUTEk printer purchases is driving a lot of that growth because it helps us print better-quality work at faster speeds.”

The two new 3.2m-wide inkjet production devices replace a pair of 3.2m VUTEk devices used at DOME. The VUTEk HS125 Pro model DOME installed is the most productive VUTEk press ever developed, and prints 25% faster than the previous-model VUTEk HS series press it is replacing. The HS125 Pro press delivers high-quality, variable gloss output with innovative UV/LED Pin & Cure imaging technology, and has a variety of automated material handling options to accommodate high-volume throughput.

The new VUTEk LX3 Pro printer DOME installed features energy-efficient, “cool cure” LED imaging technology. It replaced a 3.2m VUTEk GS series LED printer and offers a new, extended-gamut ink capable of delivering eight-color quality results using only four colors. Although the printer runs up to eight colors plus white, “we’ve found that the four-color mode on the LX3 Pro printer will work for a lot of jobs, and it will allow us to see some cost savings,” said Poole.

“The LX3 Pro model has given DOME the ability to create new applications with its cool-cure capabilities. “I can print on a yoga mat, which is a foam-based, flammable product that you can’t print on with heat-based technologies,” Poole said. “They look phenomenal, and once people started seeing them, our orders for custom yoga mats took off.”

DOME Print and Marketing Solutions has also installed the latest-version EFI Fiery® proServer digital front end to drive its new printers. The newly enhanced Fiery proServer offers superior color management as well as extremely efficient processing, RIPing VUTEk print jobs up to 60% faster than previous proServer versions.

Business expansion and employment growth with superwide-format

The installations come as DOME embarks on a progressive reinvestment to build on its profile as a premiere, one-stop provider of print and marketing services. In 2015, DOME acquired an established signage design and manufacturing company, and the family-owned company’s leaders are continuing to invest for success.

The company is consolidating all of its superwide-format inkjet display and screen print signage operations, along with a full range of related finishing services. The expansion will lead to several new hires tied to ongoing growth in demand.

“We’re anticipating a very busy fourth quarter,” Poole said. “That’s why we’re making these upgrades now. I’m going to need every piece of machinery I have just to keep up with demand. We expect to significantly increase the overall percentage of large-format work and by consolidating everything into one facility it’s going to make things a lot easier.”

In addition to being a display graphics provider, DOME is a full-service commercial print business offering offset printing, mailing, and even marketing services and programming. EFI equipment has helped the company expand a niche display graphics offering into a more robust service popular with new and existing DOME clients.

“EFI equipment has allowed our shop to grow beyond expectations, and the new equipment will allow us to continue on that path,” said DOME EVP of Operations Misha Pavlov. “We are very pleased to be working with EFI. Now we have the latest and the greatest technologies to ensure we continue to serve our customers at the highest levels.”

EFI’s complete printer portfolio, which in addition to industry-leading LED and UV inkjet narrow-, wide- and superwide-format technologies includes aqueous textile and ceramic decoration printers, gives customers profitable opportunities for “Imaging of Things,” delivering greater product customization and appeal in everything from signage and packaging to décor, apparel and industrial manufacturing.
