March 13, 2007

Andrews Decal Company, a Chicago, IL, USA converter of pressure sensitive labels for the HBA, promotional, household, sporting, industrial, and security markets, recently acquired an 11", eight-color Gallus EM 280 UV flexo combination printing press.

The press is equipped with IST UV lamp assemblies with water chill drums at all stations that allow management of web temperature, especially when utilizing heat sensitive substrates, such as unsupported film. Company President Gary Gallas says the press’s ability to print a wider range of substrates allows the company to more effectively meet demanding premium market requirements.

“This press provides our current and potential customers with the superior quality, durability and turnaround times required in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace,” says Gallas.

The press is capable of all UV flexographic printing, rotary screen printing, cold foiling, hot stamping, diecutting, embossing, and laminating. “We wanted technology that would offer our clients limitless creative possibilities,” says Gallas. “The outstanding UV print quality and color consistency, along with the combination printing versatility of this unit, will allow us to fulfill the upscale demands of clients concerned with strengthening their brand image.”

Andrews Decal Company of Chicago was established in 1946, and is family owned and operated by the Gallas family. In addition to flexographic printing, the company also offers UV sheetfed screen printing and digital printing, and provides additional finishing and fulfillment services.
