Hearn Graphic Finishing, based in Winston-Salem, NC, has recently installed a Kluge EHD Foil Stamping, Embossing and Die-Cutting Automatic Platen Press. The press was fully remanufactured at the Kluge facility in St. Croix Falls, WI and upgraded with Kluge’s TRU-TON™ adjustable impression control feature, significantly decreasing make-ready time.
A well-established wholesale print finisher, Hearn will use the EHD to meet the continued demand for high quality finishing from their strong customer base. It complements the niche they have created for special orders requiring the fine craftsmanship and attention to detail that has earned Hearn their reputation.
Established in 1930, Hearn Graphic Finishing created a perfectionist philosophy for doing great stationery that has been passed down through the years. Today Hearn takes great pride in their craftsmanship and it shows. As a Kluge customer since the 1980’s, John Mullis, President of Hearn Graphic Finishing, commented, “Kluges are the right machine to perpetuate our underlying philosophy of always exceeding our customers’ expectations.”
Mullis added, “since the purchase of our Kluge presses over 29 years ago, an adjustable impression feature, a better oiling system and improved safety features have been introduced. These are the primary factors I considered when purchasing the remanufactured Kluge EHD. The option for the adjustable impression feature alone will make this press more efficient, yielding roughly better than a two-and-a-half-year ROI.”
