Cleveland-based packaging manufacturer, Tap Packaging Solutions, recently released a short video that showcases its HP Indigo 30000 digital press and its variable printing capability for folding cartons.

In the video, Tap demonstrates how each sheet off of the press features different messaging, colors, and graphics. And because the versions are printed within one run, there is minimal waste and downtime for additional setups. Visit to view the video.

Tap’s partnership with HP and the HP Indigo 30000 is helping customers create new selling opportunities, test market and innovate like never before. Tap customers benefit from one-to-one package design, versioning controls, reduced inventory quantities and relevance of package decoration. In addition, the press runs with minimal waste, zero set-up and high quality color match.

The HP is also environmentally sustainable. It eliminates the need for printing plates and chemicals and produces minimal waste compared to traditional offset presses, making it a driving technology of a sustainable future. On average, it saves up to 250 tons of paperboard waste per year and up to 200,000 square feet of plate material per year, and it improves supply chain efficiencies by reducing inventories, which leads to the elimination of obsolete stock. The HP Indigo 30000 can also print on any off-the-shelf substrate; so recycled paperboard is completely printable with this technology.
