W+D 2017 Award Winner at PRINT in Chicago14/07/2017

PRINT 17 will feature everything graphic communications professionals need to adapt, evolve and grow their business. From September 10-14, 2017, tens of thousands of motivated, qualified industry buyers will flock to PRINT 17 eager to see and explore demonstrations of the latest technologies and innovations from more than 450 exhibitors in Chicago, Illinois, a world-class destination — and one of the largest print markets in the world!


The theme of this once every four year PRINT show is “see the new shape and feel of direct mail envelopes to come…”


W+D will be running live at the show our new W+D HALM I-JET inkjet press which was Awarded a PRINT17 "Must See´em”. Judged by 30 technical and industry experts, W+D was one of only two other companies in the Mailing segment to receive a Must See’em Award which is based on the judging criteria of innovation, ease of use, throughput and competitive advantage. 


W+D will be showing short run high-speed corner cut inkjet printing on the W+D Halm i-Jet as well as some industry first overprinting of new shape-cut and embossed envelopes that are new to direct mail printers. Special USPS approved shape-cut envelopes will be overprinted on the W+D Halm i-JET and then inserted on a W+D BB700 inserter live at the show with a very unique read and print direct mail application to further demonstrate the flexibility of the W+D BB700 inserting platform to handle a wide variety of very unique direct mail work that other inserters struggle with or just can not do.


A special section of the booth will be dedicated to the new and exciting W+D 410 Easy Enveloper which will be supplying much of the shape-cut envelopes used at the Print 17 show. This easy to use envelope converting machine is targeted for the short to medium run direct mail market where fast time to market, exceptional creative and high quality low waste envelopes from offset or digital print are needed. This envelope converting machine offers the widest range creative options for direct mail commercial printers like flexo printing/inside tinting, foil patching, embossing, RFID chip patching all done inline as a single workflow on the W+D 410 Easy Enveloper. If you use 25 million or more envelopers per year you need to look at this direct mail game changer.
