Imagine! Print Solutions Orders Seventh KBA Press
MINNEAPOLIS—When Imagine! Print Solutions began receiving more UV projects in packaging, management decided to invest in a new sheetfed press. It was an easy choice. The commercial and package printing company has partnered with KBA for years, and the six-color, 41˝ KBA Rapida 105 with UV marks its seventh KBA press.
"We are continually taking the pulse of our customers and asking them how we are doing," states Bob Lothenbach, founder and president. "We wanted to add capacity for several customer requirements. Our print buyer customers, like everyone else, are looking for higher quality and faster throughput."
