Docutech is a line of printers from Xerox. There is a compelete line
of them, the high-end of the line is high-end...from departmental
network printer (600 x 1200 X 75 ppm) through service
bureau-production "Nuvera? 120 Digital Production System" at
high-res/high-speed (4800 X 600 X 120 ppm)

Don't approach your requirements from the perspective of so
from what you need, then find the print method that complies with
your requirements.

Are you looking to buy a printer or outsource. If buying, others on
this list will be of greater help. If you are looking to outsource,
what I'd do is contact your local Kinkos or XRC (Xerox Reproduction
Center), outline your requirements, then whatever route they take, go
out to bid specifying a similar route, since they are professionals
and their job is to match the equipment/process that is the most cost
efficient to maximize profit.
