In 2000, Des Moines Blue Print Company and its division, Beeline Color Center merged identities to become Beeline + Blue. Today, they are a member of ReproMAX and print anything from wall graphics to museum displays. We spoke with their Production Manager, E.M. Leonard III, who has been with the company for 16 years.
When he came to Beeline + Blue they were in the process of purchasing an Océ Arizona 180; it came bundled with their choice of RIP. E.M. was familiar with ONYX, he was a beta tester for Version 4, and he chose the ONYX RIP for their new printer. When others at Beeline + Blue saw what it was capable of, ONYX became their default for future RIP purchases.
