Presstek 75DI Digital Offset Press Continues to Gain Industry Acceptance
HUDSON, NH—Sept. 16, 2011—Presstek Inc., a leading supplier of digital offset printing solutions to the printing and communications industries, reported that its Presstek 75DI digital offset press program continues to gain momentum as printers worldwide show interest in the 75DI’s unique capabilities. Since sales have begun in January 2011, Presstek has sold 75DIs on three continents to printers from the commercial, digital, direct mail, and in-plant segments of the market. The 75DI press is gaining interest from packaging printers, as the 75DI provides a unique capability to increase productivity and reduce cost throughout the packaging industry.
Presstek’s 75DI was featured on the cover of the September issue of In-plant Graphics Magazine, a major industry publication. In the cover article Robert Pettway, Manager of General Services and Mail Operations at BCBST, said, “The 75DI is a game-changer for us because of its sheet size, capabilities and sheer speed. We feel confident this press will play a key role in helping us bring in work currently being outsourced. In fact, our customers were so excited about this new press that while the press was being assembled on the floor and before the first production job even came off of the press, we had more than a million impressions lined up for it.”
