Fleming Award WinnersMuseums 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.

New Digital Press

Villanti Printers is excited to announce the addition of a new digital press to our family.

On December 30, just in time to start the new year off right, we installed a fresh-from-the-factory Xerox Color 1000 Digital Press in our ever-evolving Milton, Vermont, facility.

The Xerox 1000 produces remarkably crisp, immersive, and high-impact images for both high-volume and short-run jobs. Which sounds really good. But to further expand our digital printing capabilities and whet your creative appetite, we added an optional clear dry ink (varnish) station to apply eye-catching spot or flood effects, resulting in prints that burst with life and pop from the page. Check out a short (enjoyably '80s-style) video for more information about designing and printing with clear dry ink.
