MELBOURNE, FL/ATLANTA—March 11, 2010—MGI USA, the multi-substrate (paper, plastics & envelopes) digital press and finishing solutions manufacturer, announced today that Colour 101, located in Atlanta, through Paper Handling Solutions has installed a MGI Meteor DP60 Pro four-color multi-substrate digital press.

Established in 1997, Colour 101 is a woman-owned, FSC certified commercial printing company that offers clients high-quality printing with unparalleled service, and a focus on delivering complete solutions from “concept to creation.” Nancy and Michael Lepera, the owners of Colour 101, are committed to bringing in the latest innovative technologies in order to improve business processes, enhance client satisfaction and boost revenue.

To address the evolving needs of their clients, Colour 101 decided to add digital print capabilities to its workflow. Topping its list of requirements was the need for an on demand print solution that could match the quality of its Heidelberg Speedmaster 74 on shorter runs, plus full variable data capabilities. After a thorough evaluation, they chose the MGI Meteor DP60 Pro from Paper Handling Solutions. Not only could the Meteor DP60 Pro meet their criteria, it also provided them with the ability to print on a multitude of paper and synthetic substrates, including envelopes, and on sheet sizes up to 13x47”, all with the same exceptional print quality.

“With the Meteor DP60 Pro, we can now offer our clients a broader range of print solutions without compromising the quality standards our clients have come to expect from us,” stated Ms. Lepera.

The flagship in MGI’s digital line, the Meteor DP60 Pro is easily the most versatile digital press in the graphics industry, receiving consecutive Must See ’em recognition at both GRAPH EXPO 2008 and PRINT 09. Key features include:

• Compatible substrates including paper, plastics/synthetics (including specialty substrates such as canvas) and envelopes, up to 350 gsm or 130-lb cover/14-mil for paper and up to 400 microns /16 mil for plastics

• Super Format print capabilities accommodate up to 13x47” sheets

• Laser-safe prints, ideal for letterhead, envelopes and other applications previously only produced via offset

• No click charge and an economical total cost of operation

• Fogra certification (ISO 12647-7)

The Meteor DP60 Pro is quickly becoming the solution of choice for graphics professionals in a wide range of industry segments, including commercial printers, plastic card manufacturers, in-plants, book printers, photo printers, governments and envelope printers, among others.

Paper Handling Solutions, based in Marietta, Georgia, is the southeastern distributor for the full line of MGI digital presses and finishing solutions.  To learn more visit
