Special inks and media available to customers at better value for money
Jukebox Print, a global provider of unique creative printing products, has acquired its first HP Indigo digital press to increase value for its customers, as it develops and expands its line of web-to-print products that empower customers to differentiate.
The Canada-based commercial printing company, which has served customers in 128 countries in the past year, is growing rapidly as it sets trends inspired by the popularity of its YouTube and Pinterest channels. Jukebox selected the HP Indigo solution to support its growth and enhance its product offerings with specialty inks and media on a much more productive and profitable platform.
“Complex designs that push the boundaries of printing require complex printing processes that can be produced faster on our new HP Indigo 7900 digital press with quality that actually outperforms offset,” said Loredo Rucchin, founder and CEO of Jukebox. “We will pass this value on to our customers who will be amazed by the quality and value of these high impact pieces. “
Jukebox specializes in printing on unique and remarkable substrates for a full line of commercial printing products such as stickers, business cards, brochures, shirts, coasters and hang tags, cards – gifts, greeting cards and wedding invitations. Vancouver-based Jukebox provides a wide range of products for the world’s top brands, including unique stickers.
The new 19-inch HP Indigo 7900 press installed at Jukebox comes fully equipped with special capabilities to create embossed and textured effects and print on thick substrates, including synthetics and cardboard up to 22pt (550 micron / 650 g / m²) using One Shot printing. The seven-color press, capable of reaching 97% of Pantones, prints with over 20 specialty inks, including premium high opacity white, fluorescent pinks, yellows and greens, HP Indigo ElectroInk Silver for a range of metallic colors and ElectroInk Easy Release ink for scratch applications.
Rucchin personally leads creativity and innovation in Jukebox print design. Currently, the most popular product is the destination wedding invitation. The new HP Indigo 7900 press was chosen as the first step in Jukebox’s transition to HP digital printing in order to continue to realize Jukebox’s passion for distinct printing, Rucchin said.
“Since we’ve been in business, white has been the most popular color ink. Customers even want to print white on white for wedding invitations and special invitations. White ink requires a complicated process, requiring expensive and time-consuming die-cuts, but can now be digitally printed in one pass on the Indigo, ”he said.
A popular trend now is to print in white on the GF S Smith Colorplan range of papers available in 55 colors, he said. White on kraft is also popular, especially with the benefits of media durability. He said the company will expand its offering with variable data printing in specialty inks using HP Indigo.
One group that Jukebox serves is the professional cycling circuit and it will use Indigo to print numbers with fluorescent inks on synthetic substrates for cyclists.
Since its launch in 2010, Jukebox has served over 100 LGBTQ + organizations and initiatives across North America. In June, for Pride Month, Jukebox gifted anyone in the United States and Canada with a pride-themed sticker pack.
