LAS VEGAS—Digital Lizard, a Creel Printing company, has completed the installation of a new HP Indigo W7250—a photo-quality digital production press available at fewer than 50 commercial providers nationwide. The move marks another milestone in Creel’s ongoing digital growth strategy, having made two acquisitions and a multimillion-dollar investment into facilities and technological development over the last two years.
As part of Creel Printing's ongoing digital growth strategy, the company has added an HP Indigo W7250 digital production press at Digital Lizard, a digital printing company it acquired in 2011. The new press, along with six other digital presses, are housed in Digital Lizard’s new facility at 2650 Westwood, Las Vegas.
