HP Inc. announced one of its biggest customers, photo personalization giant Shutterfly, has embarked on a massive expansion of its digital press fleet with the acquisition of more than 60 new HP Indigo Digital Presses. HP referred to the deal as “the largest single customer order to date for the HP Graphics business.”

The rollout includes B2-sized HP Indigo 100K digital presses, HP Indigo 12000 digital presses, as well as investments in web-fed photo presses to transform photo portrait printing to digital. In 2017, Shutterfly named HP its “preferred” digital press provider. The presses will be installed across four manufacturing facilities in Shakopee, Minnesota; Fort Mill, South Carolina; Tempe, Arizona; and Plano, Texas over the next 18 months.
