We’ve spent many years researching, and investing in, the most uptodate technology for our customers. We can’t put every single piece of our equipment on this site as it would probably break the internet but here is a run down of our most prominent print technology.
The company ethos is to provide a service above all else and as such we aren’t restricted by the kit we have (the industry is just too big to have every piece of equipment under one roof) so if you’re looking for something that isn’t here the chances are we already have a supply line setup with someone that does. Get in touch to find out more.
HP Indigo 12000
The ‘Daddy’ of all colour digital presses ever made. This B2 format (500 x 700mm) press enables us to produce the highest quality digital print at the shortest of run lengths and deadlines. The press has the capability to print with white ink (great for stickers or when used on a dark paper like black card for example) and fluroescent inks as well as the ability to print onto plastics and thick substrates such as folding box board.
HP Indigo 7900
Two of these ‘work horses’ reside in our state of the art factory and allow us to produce a high volume of printing at the highest levels of quality. The sheet size is SRA3 (330 x 480) which is perfect for smaller jobs such as business cards, leaflets, booklets and much more. The presses have the same capability as the HP Indigo 12000 and can therefore print with white ink, metallic ink, thick substrates, dark substrates, plastics and much more.
RICOH PRO C9110
This pocket rocket of a press has a long sheet that can stretch to an amazing 330 x 700mm. Great for A4 landscape books, 6pp A4 roll folds and pocketed folders. The press has an outstanding colour reproduction and really shines on coated materials such as silk and gloss paper.

The ultra fast machine uses minimal heat which in turn ensures the print doesn’t shrink or mis-form during the printing process. This is critical when produces wallpaper and other graphics for walls, windows and so on.
It is absolutely true that there is no better way to die cut (the process of cutting shapes irregular shapes from print) than the machines made decades ago. Cutting and creasing takes place on our converted letterpresses made by the world famous Heidelberg. Die cutting ensures a quality finish with a true crease and is great for pocketed folders, packaging, tags, labels and anything that can’t be cut square.
