ImPress Systems introduced CycloneTM, the first on demand cylinder printer, in July 2001. CycloneTM prints variable information directly on to cylindrical items, including pens, pencils, markers, cosmetic packaging (lipstick and eyeliner pencils), syringes, & glow sticks, as well as industrial applications. In September 2001, ImPress was awarded the prestigious “Worth-A-Look Award” at a major industry trade show, Print01. The “Must See ‘ems” and the accompanying “Worth-A-Look” winners were selected by a panel of leading industry consultants & trade magazines from over 200 nominations & highlighted the most compelling products, services, and exhibits at the show.

Force10TM, a flat bed version of CycloneTM for decorating and printing on day planners and diaries, portfolios, presentation & book covers, novelties & gifts, was introduced in 2002. A longer version of this printer (Force10LTM) was launched at the Print05 Show in September 2005 in Chicago. ImPress was again awarded the prestigious “Worth-a-Look Award” for Force10TM.

Our newest printer, Foil XpressTM, was introduced in 2008. It is a cost effective solution for any size organization. It has never been easier to uniquely create on demand, digital, foil imprints on a variety of finished products. Invest in the best & let us help you with your on demand printing needs.
