Advanced Labels NW Buys Its 1st HP Indigo WS6000

LYNNWOOD, WA | Advanced Labels NW, a custom label manufacturer celebrating 20 years of business, adds to its existing flexographic label portfolio with the installation of its first HP IndigoWS6000 digital offset press. Also purchased is the HP Smart Stream Labels and Packaging Print Server and an AB Graphic Intl. Digicon Series 2 finishing press.

"We believe the time is now to pursue high resolution digital offset as a solution for our new and existing clients who have come to expect high quality printing and increased speed to market," says Kevin Davis company president and founder. "HP has truly opened our eyes to the many benefits of merging digital offset technology with conventional flexo printing and as well as a much needed addition to our rapidly growing business and client expectations. Simply put, digital printing has become market and client driven and there's no ignoring this fact any longer."

Davis chose ABG Intl.’s Digicon Series 2 solution to complete their needs to offer all the finishing treatments they currently utilize on their flexo presses. The finishing line includes flat bed hot stamping and embossing, semi-rotary die-cutting and embossing, cold foil and lamination as well as multiple print and varnish treatment stations.

With the addition of the HP WS6000 digital offset press and the AB Graphic finishing line in place, Advanced Labels reports it is one step closer to expanding and enhancing already extensive label packaging capabilities. "It's not all about digital," says Davis. "It's about providing packaging solutions and value, reduced time to market for our clients and addressing true product life cycle. It's about businesses going places and getting things done--together."
