Swift Print Communications Invests $500,000 in Large-Format Digital Capabilities
ST. LOUIS, MO—Dec. 2, 2011—Swift Print Communications has purchased new equipment as part of its strategic initiative to extend its services. The company added an Oce Arizona 550 XT large-format inkjet press and a Colex digital flatbed cutter.
The $500,000 investment expands the company’s capabilities to further meet the needs of its clients.
The Arizona produces pieces up to 98.8×120˝ and prints on virtually any rigid or flexible material, such as paper, cardboard, vinyl, plastic, glass, wood and metal up to 2˝ thick.
The Colex digital cutter complements the new press and extends Swift’s finishing capabilities. It handles large-format printed graphics in nearly any material. The new equipment also performs precision cuts to finish display graphics, including three-dimensional shapes.
“We know it’s important to offer our clients the right tools to enhance their image and stand out from the crowd,” says Bryan Swift, president. “Display graphics make a big impression in helping clients build awareness. We continue to make the necessary investments to ensure that we are more than just a printer. We want to be a communications’ leader. These investments further our commitment to our valued clients.”
