HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press enables increased efficiency and expanded digital print applications for Apache Superior Printing.
CALGARY—Apache Superior Printing Ltd. of Calgary, one of the largest privately-owned print service providers in the area, is expanding its printing capabilities with the HP Indigo 10000 digital press.
With this installation, 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. The company chose the HP Indigo 10000 because of its high productivity and proven print quality combined with its large sheet size.
“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,” says Apache Superior Printing president and chief executive officer Dave Gordon-Cooper. “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.”
HP Indigo 10000 digital press customers’ average print volumes have more than doubled in the last 12 months, printing over 100 million monthly impressions, and nearly 20 customers have added multiple units.
Apache is the first print service provider in Western Canada to install the HP Indigo 10000 digital press and the second in Canada. With the new press, Apache is poised to grow their business with the flexibility of digital and an optimized production floor.
