Case Study

Organization: Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES), Unemployment Office
Challenge: With sudden upsurge in people filing for unemployment insurance at the start of the COVID-19 crisis, the department quickly needed to get supplies of their Unemployment Filing Instructions booklet into their offices throughout the state.

Solution: The ACI Print Shop, within the ASPC-Perryville complex, had been printing the brochures for years. But with near full employment for the last few years there was little need for them. fortunately the Print Shop still had the digital files (InDesign) for the brochure and was able to quickly make updates to it with instructions from the DES representative. Within hours, the first batch of updated Unemployment Filing Instructions booklets were rolling off the presses.
By the end of the week, state employment offices started to get supplies of this important 24-page, 5″ x 7″, one-color booklet. During the next 4 weeks more than 60,000 copies were delivered.

Case Study

Organization: Hickman’s Family Farms
Challenge: After years in development, the engineers at the southwest’s largest egg producer had finally created a new design for egg cartons to reduce the waste created when customers broke eggs while opening cartons to examine the eggs. The clear recycled-plastic packages promise to change the egg carton forever. But the labels inside them had to be printed out of state resulting in supply time lag.
ACI Printing: Hickman label
Solution: Hickman engineers met with ACI Print Shop managers to find ways to create produce the 30 different package labels inside the ASPC-Perryville complex. New equipment was brought in procured for this specialty print job and after several months of tweaking and adjusting, and more new equipment, the ACI Print Shop began printing and die cutting Hickman’s Family Farms labels for their new carton design. This made it possible for the entire packaging process to be done locally and expeditiously.
Currently more than 60 million labels are produced weekly.
