The installation is the first in Western Canada and only the second in Canada – the first being at Cober Printing In Kitchener, Ontario. The new press will increase efficiency and expand digital print applications for the company, one of the largest privately-owned print service providers in the area. Apache will now be able to offer its clients increased efficiency and a wider range of digital print applications enabled by the press’ 29-inch format. Since 1963, Apache has provided print services to local, national and international markets, specializing in electronic pre-press, offset, digital, mail and bindery operations as well as large format foiling, embossing and die cutting.
“Our clients are consistently looking for greater ROI on their marketing investments, and combining this new format with our one-to-one marketing capabilities will enable us to deliver that,” said Dave Gordon-Cooper, President and CEO. “The HP Indigo 10000’s larger sheet size allows us to print double the size of any other digital press with comparable quality and speed, giving clients increased creativity, cost and time savings and distinct competitive advantages.” According to the OEM, HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press customers’ average print volumes have more than doubled in the past 12 months, printing over 100 million monthly impressions.
