As one of the most recognized commercial printers in the mid-west, HardingPoorman does much more than print paper or apply ink to plastic or any other material a client might request.  HardingPoorman has found ways to print indelible messages that matter on the hearts of those involved with causes that are aligned with it's core values and Riley Hospital for Children is a company-wide soft spot.

The Annual HOPE HAPPENS HERE luncheon presented by the Riley Children's Foundation, was held Novemeber 13, 2015 at the Marriott, Indianapolis, Indiana as Riley Children's Hospital celebration of hope and life. 


As a sponsor of the HOPE HAPPENS HERE luncheon, HardingPoorman printed HOPE IN COLOR 2016 calendars as a fundraiser.  All luncheon attendees also received a calendar for their support throughout the year.

A basic definition of fulfillment is to pull together all the required pieces of an order and deliver them to the intended recipient in the promised time line.  If you really dive deeper into the definition you will learn that there are many aspects of fulfillment such as printing, organizing, stocking, hand-assembling, matching invitees and product numbers, receiving orders, overnight shipping… and the list goes on and on.

UV Printing vs Conventional Printing

Posted by Mindy Wheeler

Jun 15, 2015 4:17:00 PM

UV Printing was almost unheard of until recently.  So what's the difference between UV and Conventional printing, you ask.
The printing process is almost exactly the same for both conventional and UV printing; the difference comes in the inks and the drying process associated with those inks.

Conventional offset printing uses solvent inks – which are not the greenest option – because they evaporate into the air, releasing VOC's.  They often require additional spray powders to aid in drying.  Because they are absorbed into the paper, colors can become diluted and less bright. Depending on the papers character and weight, drying can add days to each job. Conventional inks must be absorbed by the substrate they are printed on therefore, you can not use them on materials like plastic, foil, or acrylics.

Make images jump off the page with 3D UV Printing

You’ve probably heard of 3D printing. You’ve probably heard of UV printing.

But have you heard of 3D UV printing?

These days it’s incredibly hard to grab attention with your print media. The trend is to print shorter runs that are laser focused to your targeted audience. To do so, the printed piece must be that much more impactful. 3D UV offers that impact and is surprisingly affordable, especially on short runs.
