The best thing we’ve ever done for the business was upgrade to a Meteor DP60 Pro.

Suncoast ID Solutions

Suncoast Identification Solutions, located in sunny Fort Myers, Florida, is a leading manufacturer of custom printed membership cards, key tags, gift cards, loyalty cards, business cards, magnets rulers and menus. They have been in the plastic card industry for over 20 years and continually evolve as market technology and consumer needs change, aiming to deliver competitively priced, superior quality products in the shortest turn time.

The company was founded on the core belief that customer service is the key to a successful future. Suncoast’s sales and support staff strive to deliver the attention and mindfulness each consumer deserves - the communication is never over just because the sale is complete. State of the art printing presses produce vibrant full color images on a waterproof polyester core. Only the highest grade lamination is then applied to provide long lasting, scratch resistant wear. Barcodes, magnetic stripes, signature panels and personalization are upgraded features that enhance the finished product.

Suncoast first became an MGI customer in 2005 with the purchase of a Meteor DP30 digital press along with a PressCard and PunchCard. They’d looked at quite a few digital presses and card finishing systems, but were impressed with the total solution that MGI provided. In addition, the Meteor DP30 was an ideal complement to their Indigo 1000.

In 2009, Suncoast decided to expand their capabilities with the addition of a Meteor DP60 Pro digital press and UVarnish flood UV coater, which afforded them a higher level of quality, speed and versatility. This upgrade, according to Suncoast manager Pat Tinajero, was the “best thing we’ve ever done for the business.” In addition to their standard product offerings of membership, gift, loyalty and ID cards along with key tags and luggage tags, Suncoast has now expanded into other applications, such as menus, door hangers, postcards and many others.

They are extremely happy with their MGI products and their ease of operation and maintenance – the Meteor DP60 Pro is very self-sufficient and requires little operator intervention. They have even discovered that their cost of production with the Meteor DP60 Pro is 30% lower than what they initially estimated, which has had a big impact on their bottom line. One of their favorite things is MGI’s remote support feature, which allows them to communicate via webcam with an MGI engineer, allowing for a quick diagnosis of technical issues.
