Leading magazine franchisor The N2 Company (N2) has announced that its new print facility, which includes two top-tier HP presses, is now operational, making it one of the world's most cutting-edge sites for print. Responsible for 800 magazines across four main brands, N2 invested millions in its new in-house facility that will enable the company to scale in alignment with franchise growth.
This "new era of operations" for N2 means greater quantity and quality of print publications, according to company leaders. Despite the fact that every N2 magazine is free for readers – be it an issue of Stroll, Greet, Real Producers, or BeLocal – or that the company's volume has hit 20 million printed pages monthly, CEO Duane Hixon said the quality of their publications remain second to none.
"Readers deserve the best medium for their stories, and local businesses deserve the best medium for their marketing. We made this investment and doubled down on the future of print for one reason… results. Year after year, our readers treat these issues like yearbooks and hold onto them. This allows our advertisers to be seen by their ideal clients," Hixon said.
A main advantage of the new site, located in Irving, TX, is its caliber of print technology. For 13 years, N2 has placed its trust in HP printing presses to help create its award-winning magazines. With the addition of two revolutionary new HP A2200 presses, N2 is now printing three times faster while maintaining the quality for which it's known.
"We are ecstatic that The N2 Company has chosen to invest in HP and our HP PageWide Advantage 2200 press to further transform the marketing industry," said Vahaaj Khan, Head of Commercial Sales, HP Americas PageWide Inkjet Web Presses. "Their commitment to innovation and community aligns seamlessly with our vision for the future of print. Together, we will propel industry transformation forward and uplevel the printing capabilities of within today's market."
The substantial investment in this new facility underscores The N2 Company's belief in the future of print. Between its four magazine brands, N2 has vetted new locations in all 50 states for expansion.
