LAS VEGAS, NV (October 4, 2016) — Recognized for its leadership, cutting-edge offset and digital solutions, and unsurpassed technological investment, Creel and its digital division, Digital Lizard, will be featured as the October 2016 cover story in Printing Impressions. The trusted monthly publication is read by more than 60,000 subscribers and is considered the world’s largest B2B printing magazine.
In addition to Creel’s acquisitions and 21st century vision, the story showcases the company’s $5.2MM digital printing investment — a move that has made Digital Lizard a go-to solutions provider for digital books, photobooks, calendars, catalogs, direct mail, and other variable-data applications. It also highlights Digital Lizard’s big win in becoming the premier global beta site for the HP 50000. Through the arrangement, Creel and Digital Lizard will help refine the digital press’s performance and efficiencies, ensuring its claim as a true offset match while pushing the envelope in new applications.
