DAVID SAFRAN

A pioneer of heat-set offset
color printing in this country, the
Safran Printing Co. is embarking
on a venture with a Dutch firm
which will revolutionize the in-
dustry in Europe.
It is generally assumed that
European lithographers produce
the world's finest color printing,
for which there is a market in the
United States.
The ,Europeans are masters in
eolor printing in short runs,
where price is incidental, accord-
ing to Hyman and David Safran,
owners of the 56-year-old Detro .
firm.

, a new printing process
known as four color heat-set web
offset was instituted in the United
States. The Safran company was
the first to produce it in quality
printing.

Over three m i 11 1 o n, it is on
smaller runs—from 50,000 up to
3 million — the fastest and most
economical color printing pro-
cess. This is the method now
being exported to a Europe, de-
scribed in the industry, as color
starved.
The venture will be realized
with the formation of an inter-
national corporation, a merger of
the Safran company and Smeets
of Weert, a 135-year-old family
firm in Weert, The Netherlands.
The Smeets-Safran Printing
Co. will set up a new plant in
