We’ve been in business for over 30 years, and in all that time, this is our most significant investment. It’s the HP Indigo Digital Press. It’s not litho, and it’s not conventional digital, it’s between the two technologies, embracing the best of both. So it’s digital in terms of run lengths and versatility, anything from one copy upwards, but it’s litho in terms of quality.
- There is no digital technology that can match it for quality, and even with litho, which is known as the very best for quality, it is at least a match for quality, and on uncoated stocks the quality is said to surpass traditional litho printing. The press uses liquid inks, rather than toner, like all other digital presses, giving it that litho look and feel.
- The press was installed and commissioned in November and is now fully operational, producing anything from business cards, and flyers, to booklets and high end corporate brochures. It prints in conventional CMYK, but has additional colour stations to broaden its colour capabilities and produce the widest spectrum of colours available. It also prints in white ink on coloured stocks.

Other recent investments include…
As part of our recent investment programme, we upgraded our booklet maker. This is a great machine, and particularly compliments the work coming off our digital presses – our new Indigo and our Ricoh 7100. It has the latest touch screen technology for super quick make readies. It also comes with a square back unit for a superior finish with books with a higher number of pages.
At the same time we also upgraded our laminating machine. It does everything our previous machine did, but better, quicker and more efficiently. The big stand out though is its foiling capabilities. The configuration and special rollers mean we can replace the laminating film with foil. Silver, gold, or any one of a number of different colours.
