offset printing

Offset printing is still the preferred method for producing longer runs of quality printed material. Our operators take a lot of pride running our presses, making sure the images are of the highest quality and the colour is consistent. We use Heidelberg printing presses exclusively. Heidelberg is one of the top makers of offset printing presses in the world and well known for their superior quality and reliability.

 

 

computer to plate

The new industry standard, our Kodak Magnus CTP platesetter produces high quality Thermal Direct metal plates for use on our offset presses. Unlike conventional platemaking which used negatives and several chemicals, CTP uses lasers to image the plate and is 100% chemical free! This machine gave us a huge leap forward in terms of quality, consistency and efficiency.

Wide format colour provides you with many eye catching options to get the attention intended. We have photo colour up to 42″ wide on a variety of materials. Mounting available on foam core board and coreplast. Print on window film or on scrim banner and have grommets mounted to hang your banner. We offer retractable banner stands which are convenient and eye catching, excellent for trade shows. Our wide format products can also be laminated.
