Select Mohawk Products will Run Live on HP Indigo 10000 and HP Indigo 5600 Digital Presses
[Cohoes, NY – February 21, 2013] Mohawk will showcase its new Dimensional Portfolio, a new line of pre-scored and perforated products designed for digital presses, and will unveil its new Digital Swatchbook at DSCOOP8 (Booth #413), February 21-23, 2013, in Nashville, TN.
The Mohawk Dimensional Portfolio is a new line of pre-scored and perforated products designed to run on digital presses and dry toner equipment. Product demonstrations at DSCOOP8 will feature a beautifully designed wine bottle box on Mohawk Superfine Eggshell 120 cover stock running on the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press.
The Mohawk Dimensional Portfolio includes sheets of pre-scored and perforated shapes and formats. Templates include a cube box, gift box, table tent card, pocket folder, golf ball sleeve, wine bottle box, greeting card and door hanger, with plans to expand the line later this year to include additional designs and templates. These innovative products are available on Mohawk Superfine Eggshell i-Tone, Mohawk Via Linen i-Tone and Mohawk Color Copy Ultra Gloss.
Mohawk’s dimensional products are a fast, high-value solution for the brand strategy and marketing needs of vertical markets such as colleges, medical, hospitality, small businesses and more. Due to our proprietary microperf, clean edge technology, they quickly and easily pop out, fold and assemble, and they eliminate finishing operations from budget and production schedules.
To add ease and simplicity to the new offering, Mohawk created templates for each shape and made the templates available on MohawkMakeReady.com. The dimensional pieces are designed to run on digital presses, so they can be personalized with variable data. Mohawk offers packs of 50 or 250 sheets, specially designed for short runs.
A proud HP Indigo Preferred Partner, Mohawk has over 200 substrates which have been engineered to run on HP Indigo Digital Presses, including the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press.

Mohawk has dedicated and knowledgeable regional digital sales specialists and customer service reps available to answer questions related to all Mohawk digital products. Printer sample kits and vertical market kits are also available. Mohawk can also provide custom orders for all substrates.

MOHAWK STUDIO COLLECTION COLORS + HP INDIGO ELECTROINK WHITE
Two colored papers from Mohawk’s Studio Collection, a range of colored papers designed for use on digital presses, will be demonstrated with HP Indigo ElectroInk White on the HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press.
Mohawk Carnival Vellum Digital with i-Tone, Red, 80 cover, and Mohawk Carnival Vellum Digital with i-Tone, New Black, 80 cover have been selected as a demonstration to highlight the benefits and use of white ink on colored paper. The deep rich shades and textures of the Mohawk Studio Collection were specially developed for white ink applications and are engineered for optimum HP ElectroInk adhesion and runnability, resulting in brilliant full-color images on colored stocks.
Additionally, Mohawk Everyday Digital Gloss Coated 80 text and 120 cover will be running on the HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press at DSCOOP8.
NEW MOHAWK DIGITAL SWATCHBOOK
Mohawk has the largest offering of papers and substrates for digital printing in the industry—over 450 skus— and each product is listed in the new Mohawk Digital Swatchbook. The new swatchbook is a 3” x 9” screw-posted sample deck that serves as a one-stop shop for Mohawk digital papers and substrates. Dscoop8 attendees will be able to preorder a book at the conference for shipment as soon as it is available.
The new Mohawk Digital Swatchbook puts the depth and breadth of Mohawk’s digital portfolio at the fingertips of printers and designers working on digital print projects from the routine to the unusual.
