WCD Invests in HP Indigo 15K Digital Press—the First in Western Canada!
We're thrilled to finally share an incredibly exciting announcement—WCD has invested in an HP Indigo 15K Digital Press! This game-changing technology will help us disrupt the print fulfillment industry by providing customers with a greater range of capabilities, higher degree of quality, improved order speeds and more sustainable options.
With this new addition, we're bringing some of our outsourced work back in-house, while providing offset-class quality to our customers. We'll now be able to better meet the needs of customers who require high-end printing on multiple substrates and packaging using high opacity inks and spot colours.
We're now able to offer our customers:
- Consistent colour with 75% improvements in accuracy
- Fast colour matching with 97% of PANTONE® colours
- High-capacity printing with offset-style stacking
- Widest range of substrates in the industry
We're also leveraging HP Site Flow—a cloud-based, scalable, end-to-end workflow platform to streamline our operations. HP Site Flow allows us to automate order connectivity from upstream brands and content providers, while at the same time maximizing efficiency and throughput of production. We're using Site Flow to tap into the global eCommerce market, now equipped with the capability of managing hundreds of thousands of orders per day.
“The platform model is revolutionizing the print industry and has enabled WCD as a print fulfillment provider to connect globally with eCommerce companies,” said Karen Brookman, President & CEO of WCD.
“I particularly love that by being part of a platform ecosystem, entrepreneurial businesses like ours can compete within a global marketplace. On-demand print is also helping to reduce the environmental impact of traditional print by allowing consumers to buy only what they need, when they need it.”
“HP is excited to work with WCD as they pursue new markets and meet the growing needs of customers,” said Fernando Alperowitch, Vice-President and General Manager, AMS HP Industrial. “With this HP Indigo 15K Digital Press, WCD is able to provide incredible quality while expanding its offerings, enabling them to continue leading in print across Canada.”
