This acquisition expands our check capabilities and capacity while adding new customers. In addition, it will add color capabilities as well as bringing VersaSeal to our brand names. Like Ennis, PrintXcel and Printegra have been serving the distributor market for more than 80 years, and we feel this addition will positively impact customers of both companies.”
