Loading...

Digital printing has brought great innovations to the packaging industry. Obviously, many companies are capitalizing on the benefits of digital printing in order to deliver quality packaging services.  Due to the flexibility, the efficient turnaround period and the ease of customization it offers, digital printing is largely considered the suitable printing option for flexible packaging.

These days, more and more companies are switching from flexographic printing to digital printing not only because it is a productive printing option but also because it is perfect for flexible packaging. Digital printing presses are increasingly gaining significant grounds and this gives the impression that digital printing flexible packaging is one of the trends that have come to stay.

If you’re thinking about utilizing flexible packaging for your products, this article will likely convince you about the benefits of using digital printing for the flexible packaging.

Digital Printing Offers Exceptional Quality

Digital printing on flexible packaging allows for improvement in printing quality. A good instance of this is how the HP Indigo 20000 integrates excellent registration and high resolution with gravure printing. With the 7-ink station, there is a chance of incorporating 97% of PANTONE colours in the printing process without the need to replace spot colours.

Easy Customization

Digital printing allows for easy customization on flexible packaging and this seems to be one of the great benefits digital printing offers. Unlike flexographic and offset printing, digital printing quickens printing process on flexible materials and makes way for numerous printed items to be designed with plenty of features including imagery, barcodes and copy. Meanwhile, digital printing creates an avenue for these excellent customization options courtesy of HP’s SmartStream Mosaic variable design technology. If you wish to give your coffee packaging design an awesome customization, digital printing could be all you need for it.  

Faster Turnaround Periods

Compared to traditional/flexographic printing, digital printing allows for a faster printing process. Typically, traditional printing uses gravure cylinders or printing plates which often take a number of days to be manufactured. As they can’t bear waiting for so long before rolling out new packaging designs, businesses and companies are increasingly on the lookout for reasonable alternatives to traditional printing presses. Beyond doubts, digital printing has favoured the idea of flexible packaging and eliminated the need for gravure cylinders. With the faster turnaround time digital printing offers, companies adopting flexible packaging can rest assured that their files will get printed quickly after being developed.

Reduction in Costs

Digital printing is gradually reducing the need for printing plates thereby keeping printing costs within reasonable limits. Haney’s new HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press and several other digital printing presses easily eliminate the overhead expenses they would normally incur while making printing plates in flexographic printing.

Excellent Prototyping

Prototyping comes in a perfect fashion courtesy of digital printing on flexible packaging. Needless to say, digital printing on flexible materials creates an avenue for short-run capabilities. Meanwhile, testing and learning are facilitated by the possibility of making quick changes and the capability to produce short runs.

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
