The new press will join the company’s existing Kodak Nexpress SE2500 and Canon DP135; bolstering its digital printing capacity whilst offering optimal print quality and extensive in-line solutions to its publishing and marketing clients, says Headley.
The HP Indigo 7800 enables the printing of 5-colour work (Pantone colours), white ink, inline embossing, and dimensional (3D) printing. The press enables the use of a wide range of substrates, up to a robust 450 micron; whilst providing image quality that is, according to the company, ideal for a variety of marketing and corporate applications including publishing, personalised direct mail, marketing collateral, corporate reporting and fine art printing.
Will Inshaw, Operations Director at Headley, commented, “The investment in the HP Indigo 7800 forms part of our continual investment in this growing side of our business. The new press offers enhanced productivity, to support our continued growth, together with optimal print quality.
“We are now seeing real innovation from our clients as they start to explore the opportunities that digital printing technology offers. We are delighted to support them on their journey by delivering print and marketing services that provide them with a real return on investment.
“We have seen significant growth within our digital printing division within recent years. The last year has seen a number of new customers request both the complex personalised products we are able to produce as well as cost effective high quality short run work. This new investment puts us in a strong position to deliver the direct marketing and publishing innovations that our clients require.”
