Huge print opportunities in the government sector!

The public sector is still heavily paper-intensive because of long-standing government laws and regulations. Every year the federal, state and local governments spend more than $1 billion on printing services—making it a hugely profitable market for print media and print service providers.

A $61-million contract was recently awarded for printing and mailing services for the Federal Census in 2020. This is just one of the many government printing projects out for proposal from the Federal Government Printing Office (GPO) which procures a variety of printing services and products in the private sector.

Recent surveys have found that some of the challenges facing government agencies today include high-volume, multi-function jobs; remote managing of print jobs; and most importantly, printer security.

Investigate the huge opportunity in the public sector for you and your customers. The GPO provides information to the public about contracts out for bid via their website at gpo.gov/vendors.

HP offers a variety of products for DesignJet, PageWide and Latex ink technologies to fit governmental budgets and specifications, including sustainable and recyclable products that are increasingly a requirement with governmental agencies. Just a few include:

  • NEW (Currently available. Call to order.): HP Foldable Durable Synthetic Banner — engineered with Dupont Tyvek material this banner is ideal for foldable maps, banners and posters.
  • HP Heavyweight Coated Paper — ideal for color-accurate prints, working comps and design proofs, and offers excellent handleability.

2019 Coachella Headliners: Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino—and HP!

HP’s focus on innovation and cutting-edge technology was on display at Coachella, the high-profile music and arts festival that takes place in the California desert every year. Technology and music increasingly go together, and the trailblazing music event was the perfect place to allow people to get inspired, educate and express themselves with HP technology.

Festivalgoers were amazed by HP’s 11,000-square-foot geodesic dome which projected the 360-degree film Underwater, set to music by electronic dance music trio, RÜFÜS DU SOL. The fans were also encouraged to express their creativity in the colorful, psychedelic HP lounge that emphasized interactivity; attendees took selfies and manipulated the images by moving their bodies. In addition, fans were able to create custom, sustainable backpacks using HP Latex 365 printers at the "Inspired Ink" station.

The ability to print custom, on-demand products is the future for digital printing and HP is in the lead with innovative new technology and products. Digital fabric printing remains one of the fastest growing segments in the print industry, with the worldwide market expected to reach $3,943 million by 2022. *
