Mitchell Press of Burnaby, B.C., will be home to the first Landa Nanographic Printing Press in Canada. Mitchell is one of the largest print and visual communication providers in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
The Landa S10P Nanographic Printing Press offers reproduction of up to 96 per cent of Pantone colours, 6,500 sheets per hour speed, double-sided B1 (41 in.) format, and compatibility with all off-the-shelf substrates.
“Mitchell Press has always put a premium on investing in the best technology from companies that share our values and passion for continuous improvement and innovation,” says David Mitchell, director and owner of Mitchell Press. “We believe Landa technology will continue to inspire us regarding print’s capabilities, and we’re confident that our partnership will open even wider the window of possibilities for Mitchell Press.”
Mitchell’s leadership team agrees that the Landa S10P offers superior benefits on several fronts. “The Landa press gives us digital’s adaptability as well as quality that is arguably better than offset,” said Garry Gunter, Mitchell Press president. “Plus, its media versatility, B1 format, and cost-efficiency are especially relevant in a time of supply chain challenges. The Landa technology aligns perfectly with our digital transformation strategy.”
Mitchell Press is also enthusiastic about using the S10P for hybrid applications, which will allow the company to optimize its offset fleet. The company looks forward to utilizing the new press to explore the capabilities of its advanced, data-driven Project28 division.
“The Landa digital press pushes us to re-imagine print. Rather than producing 500 of one book, let’s create 500 books of one – completely personalized, with an incredibly high bar for quality. While mass customization was once a dream, today it’s a cost-effective reality,” said Scott Gray, executive vice-president, Mitchell Press.
Sharon Cohen, chief business officer at Landa Digital Printing, said, “Landa is revamping the print communications landscape, making it possible for printers to close critical run-length gaps and improve quality, costs, and timelines for existing work. That’s all before we even get to new revenue opportunities, including custom data-driven applications, that are possible with a Landa Nanographic Printing press.
“We are proud to welcome Mitchell Press, a leading print provider for almost a century, to the Landa family, and we thank them for the privilege of bringing significant benefits to the company and its customers.”
