Hightower Graphics Makes Transition To Offset With Heidelberg Press

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

KENNESAW, Ga. – January 13, 2008 – For his first venture into sheetfed offset printing, Chad Hightower chose a new 2-color Printmaster QM 46 press from Heidelberg. He started his Indianapolis-based shop, Hightower Graphics, five years ago as a broker, and has expanded his capabilities as business has grown over the years. “I’ve always been a fan of Heidelberg,” Hightower said. “I know people who run the QM 46 and have been very happy as far as the quality for small format. It’s a tremendous press and it does phenomenal work.” The shop also recently acquired a new POLAR 66 cutter. “We wanted the ease of programming, which the POLAR 66 cutter offers, and this particular model was the perfect size for us,” Hightower said. And in prepress, Hightower runs a Quicksetter 300E platesetter. The shop uses Heidelberg Saphira Perfect Dot blankets on the press as well as other Heidelberg Saphira Consumables. “This Printmaster is our first step into offset,” Hightower said. “Business has been very good — we love it.”
