New Digital Label Press On Order

I am delighted to announce today that Lightning Labels has signed a contract on a brand new, state of the art digital label press from HP. The HP Indigo WS4500 was released three months ago at LabelExpo in Chicago and is the new standard in digital label printing.

This new press brings with it many advantages:

1. Higher quality color - the output from the WS4500 is simply the best quality available in the world today.
2. Ability to do longer runs - for 1 and 2 color jobs the new press prints at over 100 feet a minute, and in normal four color mode it prints at 50 feet a minute. This compares with our current 24 feet a minute for all jobs.
3. Faster turnaround - the setup for the WS4500 is even faster, so this will mean an ability to print more jobs in a day. And with the faster press speed we should be able to bring our customers even faster turnaround.
4. Spot Colors - the WS4500 will give us the ability to do spot colors, which we don't have with our current 5 color machines.
5. Less Down Time - the WS4500 is the fourth generation of digital label presses from HP-Indigo. It is engineered to maximize uptime; many standard operator maintained processes are done automatically in the WS4500.

We are excited about the purchase of this new press. It will allow us to serve our growing customer base even better. And it will help Lightning Labels stay at the forefront of digital label printing. It is scheduled to be delivered the middle of January so we hope to be in full production mode on the new press by the end of February. I will let you know when we are ready.
