HardingPoorman Doubles Digital Print Capacity

Due to increased demand for highly personalized, short to medium length print runs, HardingPoorman has doubled digital output by installing another Canon imagePRESS C10000VP.  Keith Craig, President of HardingPoorman said “Our expectations were exceeded after installing our first Canon imagePRESS C10000VP in 2016 so we’re excited to add another machine which doubles our capacity to better serve our customers.”

Combining proven imagePRESS features and new print technologies, the Canon imagePRESS C10000VP was designed to produce a broader range of applications in shorter turnaround times. Built to run up to 100 letter-size images per minute on uncoated stocks ranging from 50# text to 120# cover, the digital press increases productivity. The entire press integrates multiple technologies that are designed to deliver reliable performance.  Additionally, the Canon imagePRESS C10000VP features new inline spectrophotometric sensors and unique Gloss optimization technology to match gloss levels of the printed image to the substrate it is printed on delivering offset-like, vivid, and reliable output quality at a high resolution of 2400 x 2400 dpi.

Craig continues to expand on why doubling digital capacity is important, “We deeply value our customers and continue to invest in quality equipment and expand our service offering. After installing the imagePRESS C10000VP, we experienced a high level of quality output with very little down time. We’re looking forward to continued growth in 2017 due to adding to our fleet of digital equipment.”

By investing in quality equipment and its customers, HardingPoorman is changing the way you think and feel about printing.

New Die Cutter Installation

HardingPoorman is excited to announce the installation of new equipment in three phases throughout early 2017.  The first phase included expanding our die cutting & creasing capabilities via the Brausse 1050SE Automatic Diecutting & Creasing machine.

We've experienced significant growth over the last five years and our client base requested additional bindery options so we listened.  By expanding to the Brausse 1050 SE, we quadruple the speed of die cutting and can offer infinite cutting capabilities. 

Known for making the printed piece a sensory experience, we employ sophisticated technology that complements our overall marketing vision.  “By continuing to expand, we’re changing the way our customers think and feel about printing,” said Dave Harding, CEO, HardingPoorman. In order to grow and evolve, we select areas to expand our capabilities that our customer’s request.  The goal of our capital improvements for 2017 is to achieve faster throughput and streamline all of our processes to make our entire operation more cost efficient.  As a result, our investment truly translates to improved pricing across all of our services.”

To have a little fun, we produced a time-lapse video of the die cutter installation.  We're up and running and cutting like crazy!  For more information, read our press release.
