    Speed, flexibility & scalability

    Digital printing technology empowers brand owners to launch faster, experiment more and promote their products in ways that have been unimaginable or unaffordable in the past. Digital technologies act as a stepping stone, allowing you to jump from concept to scale effortlessly and with a controllable investment. We’ve linked digital technologies with traditional converting processes to enable custom laminations that can be quickly scaled for commercial sales. This hybrid approach allows for the incorporation of special coatings and finishes, and cold-seal and anti-fog applications with digitally printed graphics. It’s a unique approach that enables us to leverage digital printing with the same specifications our customers expect in a commercial launch. It’s yet another way we help brands experiment at speed and turn winning concepts into scaled production.

    Digital printing that enables faster promotions, personalized printing and the ability to execute quicker has been added to the Story City footprint. Our unique digital process has the ability to add coatings to both sides of a lamination. Matte finishes, cold-seal cohesives and anti-fog are all in scope with our digital system. The digital toolkit is configured to execute tests and promotions quickly and to reach scale at an unprecedented pace.
