Screen has been a pioneer with larger sheet size digital presses and introduced the world’s first B2 sheet-fed inkjet machine, the Truepress JetSX (TP-JSX).
With the ability to print on boards up to 600 microns, the TP-JSX is the perfect tool for producing prototypes, short-run and personalized folding cartons. Using Screen’s unique water-based ink, the TP-JSX is able to print on to a wide range of standard offset stocks with results that are match for conventional production.
An additional benefit of the TP-JSX for this application is that it can print on pre-perforated boards. This means that small quantities or personalized jobs can be delivered very quickly as there is no delay waiting for time-consuming cutting and creasing.
‘The new business of Gifting’
One of the most exciting areas of business development for within packaging companies is a new opportunity to create personalised gift boxes that add tremendous value to any gift at a relatively low cost of production. The B2 sheet size means there is a wide range of products that can be produced ranging from chocolate boxes through to boxes for bottles of wine.
