Digital

Our digital printing service can give your organisation a competitive edge

Compared with conventional litho printing digital printing is quicker and better value for small print runs without compromising on quality.

We have two four colour digital presses. Our RICOH Pro C7100x digital press can also print a white ink and a varnish to give work a ‘stand out’ quality. We can print onto a wide range of papers and boards – from  a light 90 gsm (for raffle tickets) to a sturdy 350 gsm (used for business cards). We can digitally print sheets up to 640 x 320mm.  Our digital press can print on coloured paper and card, textured paper and even tracing paper. Options for personalised print runs and variable data printing are also available.

Digitally printed work can go through most of our in-house finishing processes. We can supply you with gloss laminated business cards, matt laminated brochures with a spot varnish, and creased or perforated sheets. We frequently produce digitally printed books that can be case bound (hard back book), perfect bound (paper back book) or saddle-stitched (stapled).

Advantages of digital printing include:

• You need only print the number of copies you require
• Every document produced is identical
• Consistent quality from first to last copy
• Single documents can be personalised
• You can target your message to individuals
• Professional quality colour even on small runs – also ideal for proofing
• Faster alterations to existing jobs at lower cost
• Literature can be kept current without unnecessary wastage

Our pre-press department operates with up-to-date technology and software. We can accept virtually any type of file from both Apple Mac and PC platforms, including:

• PDF
• Adobe InDesign
• Adobe Photoshop
• Adobe Illustrator
• Microsoft Word
• Microsoft Publisher
• Apple Pages

As well as handling the usual pre-press requirements we can also offer image scanning and document scanning to file (optical character recognition).
