Repro

Whether supplied by you or put together by our design team, all work is processed direct to our new state of the art on-site Computer to Plate system. Customer supplied artwork is thoroughly checked to ensure that all details and colours are correct, before production of digital proofs and then plates for print, all within the same premises. This ensures absolute control over quality and schedule, giving us maximum flexibility when meeting your requirements.

Print Production

Put simply, we have the tools to do the job, quickly and efficiently. Key to the production process is our ultra modern B1 Komori, capable of printing 5 colours in one pass at speeds of up to 14000 sheets per hour with full infra red drying; the Komori’s in-line coater also enables us to add either a Matt or Gloss seal for that extra special sheen. Regularly maintained it is highly reliable producing superb results on a 24/7 basis. For smaller work, we also have a 2 colour Heidelberg GTO, with numbering and perforating facilities, plus a wide range of additional punching and creasing machines, enabling us to satisfy the widest range of print requirements.

Finishing

To complete the process we are equipped with a full arsenal of cutting and folding machines, automatic collators and booklet makers. Our Muller Martini magazine maker is capable of putting together books or catalogues up to 96 pages in a single pass, and our specially built Original Heidelberg Cylinder machine allows us to die cut to shape a variety of special designs for presentation folders and wallets. We also have a wide range of ancillary equipment, with which we can punch, perforate, number and glue. This full range of inhouse facilities gives us a natural “edge” over those online printers who rely on outsourcing much of their finishing.
