MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., March 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OKI Data Americas
 announces the expansion of its reseller network with the addition of Styers Equipment
 of Overland Park, Kansas. Established 30 years ago, Styers Equipment is a printing equipment and
peripherals sales and service organization. As part of the agreement, Styers Equipment will sell
the OKI pro900DP digital envelope press
 within the greater Kansas and Missouri vicinities beginning immediately.

The impressive OKI proColorâ„¢ Series
 is a line of high impact digital color printers that serves the graphic arts, production,
specialty printing and imaging technologies industries. Part of the OKI proColor Series, the OKI
pro900DP is a commercial grade, full-color digital envelope printer capable of handling variable
data and variable graphics with ease and in a single pass. Boasting an embedded EFI  Fiery System
8e Controller with SmartRIP technology, the pro900DP delivers fast, automated, on-demand color
printing and job management, and is Pantone calibrated for color-critical applications.

"The addition of Styers Equipment to the OKI proColor distribution network reflects the brand's
growth and the line's marketability within the graphic arts and production markets," said Rich
Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas.
"OKI's proColor Series offers a comprehensive product line that satisfies the needs of the
industry through our innovative and cost-effective digital printing solutions. Now even more
customers will be able to experience the enhanced features and functionality of our high impact
digital printing devices that deliver short-run solutions for color-critical applications."

Styers Equipment already reports an increased level of interest in the OKI proColor equipment with
a full pipeline of small- to mid-sized commercial printers and local printing and office services
franchises, suggesting that the OKI pro900DP is a more affordable alternative to other envelope
printing solutions currently available. In addition, Styers Equipment recognizes that many digital
color printing devices in the marketplace are not capable of handling envelopes, which is where
the OKI pro900DP excels.

"The OKI pro900DP fills a void in the marketplace with its impressive high-impact color envelope
printing capabilities," said Billy Ibarra of Styers Equipment. "Shops of all sizes will find the
OKI pro900DP a cost-effective solution for short-run envelope printing needs. As run lengths
continue to decrease, this machine fits the bill."

The OKI pro900DP handles paper stock up to 330gsm, 12 inches by 18 inches, and banner printing up
to 47.24 inches. In addition, the OKI pro900DP can print on cling film and magnetic stock,
producing a wide array of output. The device prints up to 36 ppm color and 40 ppm mono[i]
, and is backed by a two-year on-site warranty[ii]
. True 1200 x 1200 dpi print resolution delivers clear, sharp text and graphics, and the high
capacity feeder holds up to 4,000 sheets of 20 pound bond paper.

OKI Data products are built on parent company OKI Data Corporation's history of leadership and
innovation. Most of OKI Data's color printing solutions feature Single Pass Color
 as well as proprietary digital LED and HD Color technologies. These technologies allow OKI Data
Americas to manufacture products that require fewer moving parts for increased reliability and
outstanding color output quality.

OKI Data provides live[iii]
, toll-free technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, with agents
based in North America.
