Innovative Labeling Solutions Expands Flexible Packaging Offerings with HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press

Friday, August 29, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

In business for nearly 20 years, Hamilton, Ohio-based ILS has evolved from a narrow web flexographic label converter to a leading full-service label and packaging provider. ILS installed its first HP Indigo digital press in 2005, recognizing that digital print would be a key differentiator. The company has since focused on strategically growing its label and packaging offerings with digital printing technology. In less than 10 years, digital printing has grown from zero to 60 percent of ILS’ revenue.

With the new 30-inch format HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press, which recently won Printing Industries of America’s 2014 InterTech Technology Award, ILS expects to produce up to 80 percent of its customers' flexible packaging applications, including those not previously addressable with digital printing technology because of former size limitations. For the first time, ILS can bring all the advantages of digital to customers' larger-sized flexible packaging applications, such as stand up pouches and three-sided sealed bags. The HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press will also help ILS streamline its label production work, providing higher imposition efficiency and an increase in the number of labels that can be produced per run, with quality comparable to or better than conventional printing technologies.

“Brands of all sizes partner with us because we transform typical labels and packaging into marketing pieces that establish meaningful connections with their customers,” said Jay Dollries, president, ILS. “Digital printing enables us to deliver that value to our clients by partnering with them to solve their unique organizational challenges, and the larger-format HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press will help us extend that value into new flexible packaging applications.”
