 HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Dec 02, 2008 -- St Ives Inc, one of America's leading web offset printing companies, is preparing to install a second new Komori System 38 web offset printing press at its Hollywood, Florida, facility.

"These new presses allow us to reach color in just 800 cutoffs and pull a complete four-color changeover in less than 12 minutes.
