Swift Printing & Communications Increases Production with MGI Meteor DP8700S
Grand Rapids based printer expands printing capabilities with Meteor S
Family owned and operated, Swift Printing is a solutions-driven printer that has been serving the Grand Rapids area for over 60 years. Founded by Walt Gutowski Sr. in 1950 as a local commercial printer, Swift Printing has become a world leader in digital technology by making innovation a top priority. With a commitment to top-notch service, the Swift Printing team is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art solutions to exceed their customers’ expectations.
Always staying ahead of the curve, Walt Gutowski Jr. began searching for a press that would complement his current line of offset and digital presses while maintaining the highest level of quality. After thorough research and testing, Swift Printing decided to invest in a Meteor DP8700 S with the help of Mid-State Litho, a MGI certified dealer.
“The MGI Meteor S is a great compliment to what we currently have in place,” states Walt Gutowski Jr., Owner of Swift Printing. “It is the only machine we can trust to do letterhead and envelopes that are 100% laser safe all the time. Not only can we do our day-to-day business more efficiently, we have also seen a huge increase in our business for short run 4-color jobs because we now have the ability to run them on the fly.”
“We are blending our history and new technology together on our digital presses by mixing old heritage letterpress work and new age printing. The Meteor S fit our needs perfectly- with its outstanding quality and versatility we knew the Meteor S would be a seamless fit,” continued Gutowski. “We are proud of our history, our community, and our print shop. With our new capabilities we are confident that we will be able to keep our customers one step ahead.”
