Coastal Container Adds Digital Print Capabilities

Last Updated: Jul 25, 2018

We’re excited to announce that we have partnered with Georgia Pacific’s new graphics division, Hummingbird™, to offer their digital print capabilities. This provides the highest quality of graphics available for corrugated print and delivers significant benefits to our customers, such as printing large format digital images at high speed production rates.

Wide-Print

Hummingbird™ is the first print line in North America to offer 110-inch wide web capability digital prints, allowing for extra-large packaged items such as televisions and large retail boxes.

Speed

Printing at 600-700 feet-per-minute, Hummingbird’s™ Hewlett Packard T1100 web press is extremely fast. But it also has the benefit of saving time during design changes. This is made possible because the files are digital, which eliminates the need for print tooling. All of this means that our customer can get their products to market up to 80% faster than traditional printing methods.

Product in Action

For our first production with the Hummingbird™ line, we partnered with Brewery Vivant on their new variety pack. The nine-pint package includes customer favorites including Farm Hand, Undertaker, and Big Red Coq. Taking direction from their well-known Red Ale, the box features a red rooster with vibrant orange, red, and blue graphics which stands out on store shelves.

Digital print is the perfect option where your business needs quick turnaround times for your corrugated solutions. If you’re interested in seeing how digital print can help your business, contact us today or schedule a tour to see the finished products first hand!
