HP

At HP Indigo, we believe in a world where extraordinary should be a given. A worlds where making something special and distinct is not costly and rare, but instead is the goal of every single job. A world where our customers can turn unique and inspiring ideas into profit, making every printing moment and every printed matter more valuable.

HP Indigo LEP technology is the only variable imaging printing technology that can equal or exceed the quality of conventional offset lithographic printing and flexographic printing. The accurate placement on the substrate of tiny dots with well-defined edges and almost no background contamination enables HP Indigo LEP to achieve exceptional print quality.

HP Indigo’s proprietary liquid electrophotography (LEP) technology delivers exceptional print quality. Electrically-charged liquid inks are dried and applied to the substrate via a thermal blanket using only a single print engine. This unique comination empowers you to create one-of-kind prints that stand out in a commoditised world.
