Digital Printing

We do more than just envelopes. Using the latest in digital print technology, these digital engines provide high-quality, fully customized products on time and on budget. We can digitally produce booklets, brochures, business cards, calendars, catalogs, envelopes, flyers, greeting cards, letterhead, magnets, menus, newsletters, notepads, postcards, posters, presentation folders, statement stuffers, table tents and more.

With digital printing, the quality once only found in traditional offset printing is now available for all your short run printing requirements. Digital printing is the ideal solution for smaller runs or custom-sized projects, which aren’t cost effective to produce with conventional offset printing. With the ability to print up to 4000 sheets per hour, digital printing is a perfect fit for jobs which have short or critical turn-around times.

Digital printing is not only budget friendly, it is environmentally friendly as well. Our HP Indigo Press and support equipment used in our digital bindery department have power saving and and eco-friendly features built in. In addition, we control waste by running exact quantities needed.

With so many features and benefits, it is obvious why companies are finding value in Bay State’s digital printing services. Please contact one of our sales representatives for additional information, questions or to discuss ways we can customize digital printing to solve your  needs.


Digital Press Equipment

As part of our expansion into new and advanced technologies, Bay State Envelope has added an HP Indigo Press Model 5500. This state-of-the-art digital press will produce  4,000 4-color A4 images per hour! The HP Indigo 5500 offers unlimited color opportunities to enhance color vibrancy and expand layout potential for our clients — we can augment four process colors with HP special colors to give you the custom look and texture you really want.

The HP Indigo 5500 is the only digital print engine that applies liquid colors similar to ink, onto various substrates. Unlike dry toner used by other digital presses, the Indigo 5500 incorporates technology based on HP ElectroInk, which uses small colour particles suspended in Imaging Oil (Isopar). The ink forms a very thin and smooth plastic layer on the paper surface. The fact that these particles are so small ensures that the printed image does not mask the underlying surface roughness/gloss of the paper (as can happen with toner-based processes), bringing Indigo printing closer in appearance to conventional offset lithography, whereby ink is actually absorbed into the paper.
