Better, Stronger, Faster: Our New Press!
- Created: Wednesday, 23 March 2016
We have some exciting news that we just can't keep to ourselves any longer: We bought a new press—a Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 106 6+L. It's going to be installed at the end of March and it should be blasting out sheets (18,000 an hour!) by the end of April.
A new press doesn't come cheap—especially not Heidelbergs, which are basically the Mercedes of presses. But we see it as an investment in the future of Villanti, our employees, and our partners. We're already fast and we already deliver a high-quality product, but this new press will double our production speed while also providing remarkable color stability and control throughout every run.
Getting our EverydayHappy on!

Seems like everyone's talking about sustainability these days. But we at Villanti Printers think it's important to point out that the idea of sustainability is based on something that has guided our every move since 1959: a belief in the future. This philosophy led EverydayHappy to partner with us for their welcome letters.

We were over the moon when we found out that a brochure Villanti produced for St. Lawrence University was featured on Foldfactory's video series, 60-Second Super-Cool Fold of the Week. For those of you who aren't fold fanatics, Foldfactory has been showcasing a new awesome fold every week for more than six years. The range of creativity out there is truly inspiring.
The Art of Printing: Villanti’s Museum-Quality Work
- Created: Wednesday, 11 November 2015
Museums exist to educate, entertain, awe, and delight. Whether their focus is art, history, science, or some fascinating hybrid, they put a great deal of time into figuring out how to present their collections to the (often quite distracted) public. Of course, it makes total sense that they'd want to make sure that their catalogs, mailers, and other materials make just as much of an impact.
At Villanti, we know that our approach to the printing process, along with our stochastic capabilities, gives us the ability to create awesome color—true-to-life, eye-popping, museum-quality color. You combine that with our attention to detail and it means that we can help museums showcase their collections and attract visitors.
The 97th annual New England Museum Association (NEMA) conference took place last week (November 4-6) in Portland, Maine. We have worked with NEMA-member museums for years, so for us it's always fun to catch up with old friends—and meet new ones. For museum professionals, it's a chance to share secrets, concerns, advice, and inside jokes—and also, apparently, judge each other's publications.
