Product Advantages

Laser-Safe Prints

MGI's toners are oil-free and silicone-free, which means that they are also laser-safe - the only production digital press with this capability. Laser-safe prints won't smudge or ghost when run through any standard desktop laser printer- so your customers can enjoy full-color letterhead and envelopes, even in short runs.


Envelope production can be an instant game changer for your business. Whether you are printing high quality 4C logos on stationary (supplementing an offset run), or printing variable data for direct mail applications, the Meteor DP8700 S can bring in serious profits for your business. Go from the typical DL envelope all the way to the C4 envelope, with or without windows, all on demand.

Standard Offset Media

You’ve been challenged by the cost of the special “digital” papers you were being forced to use. Thanks to our our Smartfuze engine management technology, you can print digitally on the same substrates that you are currently printing with your offset press today, meaning no separate “digital” stock in your warehouse and the ability to immediately lower your cost of production by an average of 30%.

No Click Charges

We listened when printers worldwide told us they thought that the click charges were unfair, and we agree 100%. We operate on a model that is similar to that of an offset press, allowing for tremendous production cost savings and no stressful monthly minimums or overage charges. You pay for what your print, it's that simple.

Ease of Use

While it should be emphasized that the Meteor DP8700 S is not a push button press, your operators will quickly understand how the press works, both inside and out, as it is relatively easy to use. Whether your operator comes from an offset press background or a pre-press background, MGI's team of engineers will teach your operator everything he or she needs to know about how to manipulate colors, substrates, formats and more.


Never be down without support again with MGI's technical support system.

MGI's remote diagnostic tools in conjunction with a webcam (standard with all Meteor DP series) allow MGI certified technicians to remotely support your press and walk your operator through most maintenance procedures. In addition, every Meteor DP comes with a interactive video that shows, step by step, how to perform from the easiest to the most difficult of procedures. If you need a site visit, MGI's worldwide network of certified technicians are only a phone call away.

Product Applications

4-Color Brochures

Whether it's a simple duplex page or a 2-page brochure, MGI's solutions can produce a wide range of creative and attractive brochures.



The envelop is more than ever the medium of choice to address the customer with personalized advertising and to convey a powerful marketing message. 4-Color printed envelopes are eye-catching and really grab the attention of the recipient.



MGI's special silicone free toner and fusing technology will allow you to print laser safe documents, such as letterhead, that will not re-melt during overprinting. Being able to print letterhead digitally instead of running it on an offset press will bring major advantages in terms of costs, plus shorter run options and quick turnarounds.

Produce beautiful 4-color business cards (in the shortest of runs), and finish spot UV coating or hot foil stamping and embossing...MGI has a solution for you.


Invitations/Greeting Cards
