Ryan Printing Becomes a ‘One-Stop’ Resource for Clients with HP SolutionsJanuary 20, 2012
Becoming a more complete solution for marketers
For Ryan Printing’s existing customers the digital installation represented an opportunity to consolidate print jobs sent to multiple printing companies to a single provider that could produce a wider range of work under one roof.
Ryan Printing started producing its customers’ targeted and shorter-run collateral printing, then expanded its web-to-print capabilities as it became more proficient with the HP Indigo press.
Ryan Printing soon added a number of new customers. In 2010, print industry veteran Rob Mangini joined the firm as a vice president and worked with Al Ryan to expand the company’s service offerings into web to print, social media, wide-format printing and e-commerce.
In early 2011, with revenue growing almost 50 percent, Ryan Printing added its second HP Indigo 5500. Printing done on the HP Indigo presses now accounts for approximately 30 percent of Ryan Printing’s revenues. The company anticipates continued growth as it rolls out new, templated web-to-print tools that will send jobs directly to the Indigo presses’ print queues.
Bringing wide-format graphics services in-house
After outsourcing some new wide-format graphics work, the company installed an HP Designjet Z6200 Photo Printer and a flatbed HP Scitex FB500 Industrial Printer in late 2011.
With the HP Designjet Z6200 Photo Printer, Ryan Printing addresses its clients’ needs for high-quality indoor display graphics for tradeshows and other uses. For rigid media work, the new, flatbed HP Scitex FB500 Printer eliminates the time and expense of foamcore mounting and lamination for many display jobs. The HP Scitex FB500 Industrial Printer enables Ryan Printing to offer point-of-purchase displays, as well outdoor signs that require the durability of the press’s UV-curable inks.
Ryan Printing’s range of offset systems and HP digital printing solutions allow it to meet important customer service goals.
“Success in our industry revolves around our ability to take stress off of our clients’ desks,” said Mangini. “If a client needs high-quality work done right, and done quickly, we don’t have problems delivering because of what our mix of solutions can do.”
