Digital Lizard Installs HP Indigo 12000; Enables Larger Formats, More Substrates
LAS VEGAS — February 23, 2017 — Digital Lizard has added a new HP Indigo 12000 to its lineup. The installation follows up on numerous 2016 investments across the Creel companies. Digital Lizard, Creel's Digital Division, has been a focus for these assets to keep up with rapid growth.
The 10th press at Digital Lizard's Las Vegas plant, the HP Indigo 12000 offers innovations in quality, applications and color reproduction. In addition to true seven-color matching, the 29˝ press enables larger formats and direct printing onto photo canvas, plastics, paperboard, synthetics, and metallized substrates up to 18-pt. thick. These enhancements provide for exceptional flexibility and creativity for Digital Lizard customers.
With the installation complete last week — and fully integrated into its workflow — the company is running live jobs. The new press allows for production of eight-page variable mailers on a single sheet, offering an extremely efficient way to produce a very unique piece.
"The HP Indigo 12000 is the perfect extension of our full-service, global digital capabilities," said Bill Wieners, president of Digital Lizard. "The speed, image area and print quality are superb, and our best-in-class prepress teams are developing innovative ways to use the size to offer personalized collateral. We are thrilled to be able to offer clients superior solutions for higher page counts, quantities, and sizes on so many more materials."
Carbon-neutral with improvements in energy efficiency and waste, the HP Indigo 12000 also supports Digital Lizard¹s commitment to responsible manufacturing. Other sustainable equipment and practices have been implemented across the company. The HP Indigo 12000 is an evolution of the Indigo 10000, the world¹s best-selling B2 digital press.
