Strengthening its foothold in digital printing, Graphica Digital has installed HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press at its facility in New Delhi to meet the growing demand of innovative B2 size printing. HP Indigo 12000 HD will allow the company to venture into big-size albums, light packaging in short to medium run lengths, high-end gifting boxes and wedding cards, sheetfed labels, and personalized amateur photo books.
HP Indigo 12000 Digital Press offers superior print quality, high productivity, and wide versatility which will enable Graphica Digital to produce the finest digital prints in B2 size. With HP Indigo’s liquid electrophotography (LEP) technology, the digital printer delivers crisp linework, attractive images, and smooth vignettes.
HP Indigo 12000 digital press also features a 5th ink station for WHITE INK and SPOT colors. This color accuracy will allow Graphica digital to strengthen its position in its core business of printing best-in-class wedding albums across different sizes & specialty printing jobs. This extra color range will allow the company to achieve PANTONE® emulations, using the only PANTONE® licensed 6 and 7 color on-press solutions in digital printing.
Specific brand colors are sometimes outside the gamut of CMYK, which is where HP Indigo is a big advantage. With HP Indigo there is a possibility to mix colors off-press, or PANTONE® licensed spot colors can also be used and can be matched to any swatch or color sample on specified substrates. This ability is unique to digital print and exclusive to HP Indigo which can be highly leveraged by corporates, brands, marketing agencies in India and around Delhi-NCR at Graphica Digital to satisfy the most color-conscious customers with an accurate, smooth, and consistent look.
HP PrintOS helps customers get the most out of their presses, simplifying and automating production for customers to innovate and grow.
