The digital printing industry has benefited from Michelman’s collaborative innovation with HP Indigo for nearly 20 years. We work directly with HP Indigo to offer the only HP-certified press primers for paper and film media to produce the best possible output. Our DigiPrime® primers, certified for HP Indigo presses, optimize a wide range of substrates with solutions for printers, converters, and paper mills.
Our application experts, certified on HP Indigo presses, have long-standing experience in helping printers and converters design, develop, and optimize their label, flexible packaging, and commercial print applications.
Digital printing is a more sustainable method for creating packaging and other printed output because it does not require the creation of plates, uses less ink, and reduces inventory waste by allowing converters and brands to print smaller volumes. It positively affects the environment by reducing much of the physical and chemical waste throughout the printing process and allows for high mix, low volume print production to be economically viable.
Our HP-certified Michelman primers for flexible packaging have passed extensive testing for ecotoxicity, heavy metals, and fluorine content, which conform to leading industry standards such as ASTM and the European Committee of Standardization.1 Additionally, our repulpable DigiPrime® grades have been favored by paper mills for more than a decade.
