Friday, February 26, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Brooklyn Park, MN – Squid Ink recently donated a new VDP In-Line variable data printing system to Dunwoody College of Technology in Minneapolis, MN. The donation, valued at approximately $50,000, underlines Squid Ink’s continued commitment to the printing industry and enables Dunwoody students to gain hands-on experience printing variable data on their flexographic presses.

The donation by Squid Ink included a VDP In-Line variable data printing system that mounts on Dunwoody’s existing 10" Mark Andy flexographic press. Squid Ink’s VDP In-Line system utilizes industrial inkjet technology to print variable data including sequential bar codes, sequential numbers, traceability codes and game codes on tickets, tags and labels. The system’s four 2.1" high-resolution printheads can print up to 8.4" wide on a variety of porous and non-porous surfaces. The system will be used by students learning to run flexographic equipment at Dunwoody.

“Squid Ink is excited by the opportunity to support Dunwoody College of Technology’s efforts with this donation,” said Bill Hoagland, president of Squid Ink. “By providing students with hands-on access to the latest technology in the high-demand area of variable data printing, we feel certain that they will enter the workplace better prepared to begin their careers and contribute to the industry.”

Flexographic Instructor Shawn Oetjen was involved from the beginning of the project and expressed appreciation for the donation. “We are grateful for Squid Ink’s donation and our ongoing partnership to better prepare our students for careers in flexographic and variable data printing,” he said. “Variable data printing is in high demand right now, and I am excited to be able to offer our students the ability to add variable printing to their training.”
