Hudson Printing of Salt Lake City, Utah, is now home to a new Landa S10P Nanographic Printing Press.

“Quality is paramount around here,” saidPaul Hudson, CEO of Hudson Printing. “Our customers will not compromise on colour. It’s what we’re known for.”

The Landa S10P’s expanded colour gamut, better economics and higher productivity made Hudson’s decision to choose the S10P press a straightforward one. The seven-color Landa S10P will reproduce 96 per cent of Pantone colours.

“The S10P checked all of our boxes,” said Hudson. “We needed the speed, the B1 format and the best colour available. Over time it became clear that Landa’s advantages are better by orders of magnitude.”

While a stable of offset and digital presses will continue to produce Hudson Printing’s general commercial, magazine, catalog, book printing and burgeoning direct mail business materials, Hudson and his team expect to migrate work from both press types to the Landa S10P.

“It’s the perfect machine to bridge the space between these two robust workflows,” he says.

As an example, Hudson points to the millions of pieces it enters into the mail stream every month. “We have some large direct mail jobs that can take dozens to even hundreds of hours on digital presses,” he says, “but when you move over to the Landa you not only have a much larger sheet size with B1 (41 in.);, but also have faster production speeds and coating inline. It’s a fantastic productivity tool for direct mail.”

Heberto Pachon, general manager of Landa Digital Printing, Americas, said, “We are delighted to welcome Hudson Printing to the Landa family. Getting to know Hudson’s team, as well as having a close-up view of one of our industry’s finest printing operations, is a privilege. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
