Being a printer is as important today as it was back in 1884 when the business was founded.

Litho Printing

Litho printing is provided by a range of five presses. Four are two colour perfectors providing excellent quality for single and two colour text printing. These are complimented by two multi-colour presses meeting both text and cover printing requirements.

Working to ISO 9001 procedures we are able to deliver consistent printed results and our ability to print the equivalent of over 12 million A4 pages every working day ensures that clients' schedules are consistently met, if not exceeded.

Digital Printing

As an early adopter of digital printing technology we are well versed in the benefits this technology can bring to the printing process and the publications our clients produce.

We are equipped with two HP Indigo 5500 colour printing devices that provide superb colour reproduction. The HP Indigo is the favoured digital colour printing technology of a number of our clients who have done in-depth evaluation of the available technologies. Our feelings are the same. Using a liquid based ink/toner ensures the Indigo allows for consistency of printing from the first image to the last. Equally important in the world of short run on demand production is the consistency from printing to printing. Our excellent workflows and production techniques ensure we deliver to our clients the best possible results.

Our Indigos are supported by a Cannon 7011 4 colour toner based print engine. We are also equipped with three Océ sheet fed digital printing devices and a 1300 Duplex Xerox digital web for mono printing.

Our mono presses are configured to handle paper weights as low as 50gsm. Indeed, the web device prints consistently on 40gsm stock, essential when dealing with large multi-page publications that may be mailed.

A number of our clients are happy for us to move work between litho and digital printing technologies as the economies or schedule requirements dictate. If we can be of assistance in helping you determine the best method of production, then don’t hesitate to contact us.

Variable Data Printing

Using a combination of modern digital printing technologies and XMPie, the advanced personalisation software, we are able to assist clients in the adoption of this powerful communication format. Every day we are producing personalised books, letters, statements and other marketing collateral on a variety of material in a variety of formats.

Our expertise as a book manufacturer has enabled us to develop production techniques that ensure a robust and well bound publication is delivered to the end user. This can be particularly challenging when the end user is a child who wishes to show everybody how they’ve appeared in their own book!

If you require personalisation in books, on covers, within statements, letters or direct mail collateral, we have the ability to meet your requirements.
