Digital Finishing: The Last Mile

A White Paper by WhatTheyThink Senior Editor Cary Sherburne, sponsored by Highcon

Both packaging and commercial print have been undergoing major changes – shorter runs; smaller, more customized lots; faster time to market; ongoing cost pressure. These are just a few of the challenges that printers and packaging converters face in a highly competitive and dynamic marketplace. Manufacturers of conventional and digital presses have made great strides in improving the efficiency of the printing process. But for many organizations, finishing is still a bottleneck and a limitation to the creativity of designers.

This white paper discusses the impact of the digital revolution on the bindery and converting. It includes real-world examples of how printers and packaging converters are turning to digital processes to remove the bottlenecks from that “Last Mile” for a more efficient overall workflow that addresses the key market challenges, and for new and exciting capabilities that unleash designer creativity by taking off the handcuffs that have historically constrained them.
