Folding Carton

Opens doors into growing packaging sector

Los Angeles based D’Andrea Visual Communications (DVC) is one of only a few companies to print on all types of substrates, from fly sheet to 36 pt board as well as a variety of synthetic stocks. This fall, the firm is installing its new KBA Rapida 106 alongside an existing press.

Press operators are eager to begin production on the new Rapida 106 eight-color press with coater and UV technology. Its production speed of 20,000 sph will increase job throughput and its ErgoTronic and QualiTronic technology systems — which provide precise quality and color control measurement of each sheet — will raise quality levels even further, especially important for DVC’s well-known brands.

“Ultimately, our goal is to create visual marketing materials that get noticed,” says Gary Reyes, litho division manager. “Every day, we’re producing impactful and innovative visual experiences that inform, motivate, and inspire while reinforcing our clients’ brand and making a lasting impression. Currently in our market we see clients wanting quality work with a speedy turnaround. They also want that one on one service so they feel confident their projects are being handled in an efficient manner. Our clients praise us for our unparalleled customer experience.”

D’Andrea Visual Communications was launched in April 2005 and is a complete visual communications producer for Fortune 500 brands as well as unique start-ups. DVC is a minority owned and FSC® certified company. Its founder, David D’Andrea, has been in the printing industry in Southern California for more than three decades.
