Staples Print Solutions: A pair of digital presses added
USA. The printing division of Staples Advantage has transformed its printed label and packaging offerings with the installation of two HP Indigo WS6600 digital presses. Growth in Staples’ prime label and flexible packaging business has fuelled greater demand for digital production from customers interested in shorter printing runs and higher levels of customisation.
To meet this demand, Staples is expanding its label and packaging manufacturing beyond the conventional flexographic presses in place today to include a fully digital workflow that reduces waste, decreases turnaround times and improves colour consistency.
The WS6600 presses are installed in SPS’s manufacturing facilities in Wichita, KS and Fresno, CA. The new digital solutions expand Staples’ product and service offering, which currently includes labels, flexible packaging, commercial print, corporate brand identity, custom forms, digital copy and print, prepress and design services, kitting and fulfilment, as well as nationwide distribution.
