Gabriel Group Adds the Newest Print Technology: Enhancing Quality, Speed and Impact

Gabriel Group, a member of the Xerox Premier Partners Global Network of leading graphic communications providers, adds the newest print technology to better serve clients’ print needs.

It has acquired a Xerox iGen 4 26” Production Press with matte toner that produces digital printing that matches offset and will allow for an increased number of pieces imaged per sheet because of its larger maximum paper size. Additionally, Gabriel Group has added the Xerox Color Press 1000 that is ideal for the quick turn time, but high resolution needs of its Print on Demand clients.

“We are excited about the new mix of equipment in our digital department. Not only will these upgrades help us better serve our partners current needs, but they are a key component to the potential growth of our business,” said Art Kerckhoff, Principal at Gabriel Group.

The nature of graphic communications is changing dramatically as people increasingly communicate and market products and services with digital media, and print’s role evolves as a vital vehicle in the communications mix. Members often share best practices through the organization’s networking and educational programs, helping their colleagues to stay current and continuously advance their offerings.

As a Xerox Premier Partner member for the past nine years, Gabriel Group continues to demonstrate digital print and digital communication leadership. Take advantage of these new capabilities by contacting Gabriel Group at 314.743.5700.

Gabriel Group Makes Donation in Honor of Clients

In the true spirit of the season, Gabriel Group is celebrating its sixth year of meaningful gift giving by making a donation to Our Little Haven.

Each year for the past six years, Gabriel Group has made a donation in honor of its clients in lieu of a traditional gift. This year, Gabriel decided to let its clients and friends help choose a deserving St. Louis children’s organization to be its 2013 pay it forward recipient. With an overwhelming majority of the votes, Our Little Haven was selected as the organization for which Gabriel Group associates would raise money.

Our Little Haven is relentlessly committed to providing a safe, secure and healing environment for children suffering from the tragedy of abuse or neglect. Its dedicated and compassionate community of caregivers make the hurting stop, the healing begin and the love last, one child at a time.

“We can’t think of a better way to thank our clients for their business and to ‘pay it forward’ as we wish them a Happy Holidays and Joyous New Year,” said Art Kerckhoff, Principal.

All associates participate in this pay it forward effort year-round. From making a donation to dress down on Wednesdays to participating in monthly raffle basket drawings to pieing our Executive and Sales team members, associates raise money to make a significant donation to a worthy cause each year in honor of clients.
To date, Gabriel Group has funded a spring water aqueduct in the Dominican Republic to help provide children with safe drinking water; built four double-family homes for families in earthquake-ravaged Haiti; funded a new classroom at an early childhood education center in Zambia; provided food and clothing to an orphanage in Mozambique and supported relief efforts following the devastating tornado in Joplin; and provided farm animals, fruit trees and bicycles to poverty-stricken children and families through the company’s client, World Vision.
