Premier Graphics triples inkjet colour capacity with two new HP PageWide web presses

February 20, 2020  By PrintAction Staff

In a move to beef up its colour digital print volume capability, commercial printer Premier Graphics, a provider of transactional and marketing communication solutions, has added two HP PageWide web presses at its facility in Stratford, Conn.

The Stratford-based company now operates three PageWide web presses at its plant: the colour series HP PageWide T230 and HP PageWide T240 HD web presses can print on a wide range of substrates, such as Teslin, a synthetic paper used to produce insurance, membership, and loyalty cards in high volume.

The acquisition, which triples Premier’s print volume capability, allows it to meet what it calls “rising demand for data-driven applications in multiple vertical markets including the health care sector.”


“With our new firepower, we can deliver a high volume of variable products with extremely fast turnaround, including customized and personalized member communications,” Sean Huban, the company’s chief revenue officer, said in a Feb. 19 statement. “The combination of the three inkjet presses provides us the ability to produce over 5 million variable pages per day.”

Since acquiring its first HP PageWide T230 colour series web press in 2017, overall business at Premier has grown by 50 per cent, Huban said. Today, Premier’s digital printing business has grown to 70 per cent of overall production.

For Premier’s health care clients, the web presses enable a full set of personalized content for members and their families including customized ID cards, letters, invoices, and welcome kits.

Other transactional works include high-volume personalized direct mail, statements, invoices, and explanation of benefits (EOB) documents. For political mailings, Premier’s new capacity will enable them to produce mailings twice as fast as its capability in the 2016 election.

Founded in 1984, Premier provides printing and mailing services to hundreds of clients out of its 85,000-square foot facility.
