Ennis Installing MGI Digital Press to Create Business Opportunities
MIDLOTHIAN, TX—Oct. 12, 2010—Ennis, Inc. has acquired a Meteor DP60 Pro digital press from MGI Digital Graphic Technology for its Ft. Scott, KS plant. Ennis expects the new digital press to unlock more print opportunities previously hampered by their production capabilities. The multi-substrate press is designed for short runs and has numerous applications for paper, plastic and envelopes.
Terry Pennington, vice president of sales at Ennis, said “Our new equipment will allow our distributors to address their customer needs for gift and loyalty cards. The plastic card market continues to grow even during challenging economic conditions. Distributors can now look to Ennis for their direct marketing needs.
“For instance, we can now offer personalized postcards and other printed media to audiences from 10 to 10,000. Our equipment also has the capability to produce security cards for private companies and government agencies—another market with significant revenue and profit growth,” Pennington said.
The flagship in MGI’s digital line, the Meteor DP60 Pro received consecutive Must See ’em recognition at GRAPH EXPO 2008 and PRINT 09. Key features include true multi-substrate versatility (widest range of paper, plastics & envelopes), sheet sizes up to 40” in production as a standard feature, laser-safe prints, offset comparable color output (Fogra certified), plus no click charge and an economical total cost of operation.
In addition to the Meteor DP60 Pro digital press, Ennis also utilizes MGI’s multi-substrate finishing line, including the UVarnish flood UV coater, PressCard Pro hot platen lamination unit and PunchCard Pro credit card format die cutter.
