  • Flexibility of digital technologies

Heeter will streamline its operations with fewer steps, more savings, and more efficiency resulting in customers seeing improvements in quality, speed and savings on their print jobs.

Our customers love the new platform

“At first we were skeptical that an inkjet web printer could present our product images in an acceptable way. But after seeing the high quality results, Giant Eagle became a fan and we are expanding its use.”Jody Neiswonger, Direct Mail Specialist, Giant Eagle

“The combination of speed and quality of the Ricoh 60000 is what convinced me to move my project to the inkjet web process. I’m very happy with the results.
