Our Full Colour printing is produced on state-of-the-art KBA and Heidelberg Lithographic Printing Presses. These range in size from A3 up to a size of 1600mm x 1170mm.
The excellence of these machines allows us to produce work of the highest standard.
Full Colour Printing is produced by combining four colours (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) in different percentages. It is perfect for the majority of work, however, there are times when more specialised print processes are required.
Leaflet Printing Technology
We are among the few printers to use Stochastic Screening for all our Lithographic Printing. It means that traditional 'dots' of colour are replaced with much smaller random screens. The results are dramatic, with improvements in the quality of both pictures and fine text. Though the technology is not the same, the difference is like comparing High Definition with ordinary television!!
In addition to Full Colour we are able to offer Metal FX (Metallic Printing). We can also print using Pantone Spot Colours.
Metal FX is a relatively new process. We have passed strict criteria to be licensed to use the system. Metal FX allows any number of Metallic colours to be produced on the same page with Full Colour. For more information on, and examples of, the stunning effects possible with Metal FX, please see our Metal FX FAQ.
Pantone Spot Colour Printing can be more economical than Full Colour for a job which is only one or two colours. However the main reason to print using Spot Colours rather than Full Colour is that it can produce print with great vibrancy and a better match to a wider range of colours. For more details please refer to the Spot Colour FAQ.
Some leaflets can be Digitally Embossed. These are indicated with the embossing logo. Please see Digital Embossing FAQ section for more details.
Special Leaflet Shapes
We can also Die-Cut A5 Leaflets and upwards in to any shape you can think of, we can design a forme for your specific requirement. The cost of a forme starts at just £70.00 + VAT. Please submit your design to us for an exact costing. The cost of a forme is a one off charge. On subsequent runs we can use the forme again.
The cost of Die-Cutting (over an above the cost of the forme) is calculated from a setup charge and then a running cost per 100.
