Hagadone Installs State-of-the-Art Hewlett-Packard Indigo 7600, Only One of its Kind in Hawaii
HONOLULU >> A little more than four years ago, Hagadone, Hawai’i's largest commercial printer, upgraded its technology by acquiring a state-of-the-art Hewlett-Packard digital printing press, the HP Indigo 5500.
And they’ve done it again.
Hagadone announces today the successful installation of bleeding-edge print technology from HP’s industry-leading Indigo 7600. The fastest 13 x 19 inch format digital sheetfed press in the market, the Indigo 7600 combines proven quality, versatility, and breakthrough productivity. A special VIP unveiling and Hawaiian blessing will take place at Hagadone Headquarters, 274 Puuhale Road, on Tuesday, Feb. 19, from 5-7 p.m.
“We expect this upgrade to triple our production speed and slash turnaround times,” said Hagadone President Clint Schroeder. “And the new special-effect capabilities, like raised print and textured effects, will give our customers the chance to set themselves apart from their competition with accurate, high-quality and innovative print solutions.”
The Indigo 7600 enables embossed-style textures, raised effects using layers of transparent ink applied, and digital watermarks that afford increased document security.
“Our ability to deliver fully customized pieces and incorporate embossed-style textures reinforces our ability in customers minds to provide them with marketing materials that are tailored to individual recipients,” continued Schroeder. “And this press is 80% faster than our old Indigo 5500, which means a much faster turnaround time – another essential quality our customers expect from us.”
Underscoring Hagadone’s commitment to the environment, this is the first HP Indigo press with carbon-neutral manufacturing, designed for sustainability at every stage of its life. And it boasts 30% lower energy consumption.
Hagadone has completed installation of the Indigo 7600 and is now being put into service for its customers.
For over 25 years, Hagadone has been a trusted, local business partner. They provide clients with innovative design services, high-quality print and promotional products, and are one of the largest mail houses on the island; allowing for a complete package of services. They also lead the charge in PrintGreen efforts with Carbon Offset, a Solar Output, and Community Recycling programs. Additionally, every second Saturday of the month, Hagadone opens up its recycling bins to accept any and all junk mail and magazines from the public.
