Xeikon, a division of Punch Graphix based in Itasca, IL, joins the Jimmy Fund, a leading supporter of the fight against cancer in children and adults at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, in announcing that more than $318,000 was raised through the 2009 Holiday Greetings program to support cancer care and research.

In 2009, Xeikon and the Jimmy Fund entered into a corporate partnership in which Xeikon donated all printing and finishing services to produce festive holiday cards, helping to offset the costs of the Holiday Greetings program.

Through this initiative, holiday cards and exclusive gifts, such as handcrafted ornaments and candles, could be purchased for friends or family members, with proceeds benefiting the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund.

Under this initiative, more than 200,000 holiday cards were produced on the Xeikon 8000. The cards were converted inline with a finishing unit capable of UV coating, super-glossing, diecutting, stacking and batching.
