Digital - HP Indigo 5500

We are pleased to announce that Reed & Witting Company has upgraded our HP Indigo to a 5500! What does this mean for you? Simple! Expand your projects with Reed & Witting! HP Indigo always means great quality. Mimicking Offset printing, the HP Indigo 5500 uses liquid inks to keep the same litho feel. Our new maximum flat size has increased to a maximum sheet size of 13" x 19" with a live image area of 12.48" x 17.7 (includes bleed!)

Complete Color Options are new at Reed & Witting! A new line up of ink options are available, the first being white ink. By having white ink we can now print on colored substrates. We can produce double sided clings and print on silver metallic paper. The second ink addition is matte ink. This ink provides a matte effect on material, from a frosted look on clear synthetic to producing a matte effect on images. This was only possible on litho presses before. We now provide it at a more affordable level for shorter runs!

Reed & Witting now offers, larger sheet sizes, additional ink options, greater range of stocks to chose from and can now print on 18pt thick stocks. Expanding upon our printable material options is the drawer system on the HP Indigo that allows the machine to collate up to 4 different stocks at one time. Stocks would not be anything without color control of the inks. That's why the HP Indigo is also G7 certified. Meshing well with our G7 certified Litho Press providing an even greater accuracy of color control.

The Indigo 5500 can still print Variable data as well. This is one of the hallmarks of the digital presses. The ability to variable data, images or copy, on direct mail, posters, cards, signage and the rest of the products that are out there. Start addressing your target market on a first name basis with Reed & Witting Company and our digital capabilities!
