Full Colour High Speed Litho Printing
“Our 6500 square foot production unit is based in one of Cumbria’s premier industrial sites, Kingmoor Park, in Carlisle. With service links to the M6 North and South we are ideally placed to service Cumbria, South West Scotland, the North East and beyond”
We operate the largest commercial printing press in Carlisle. It is one of the most ecological printing presses currently operating in the UK. We are one of only a handful of companies using a completely chemical FREE plating process. The ‘Fuji Pro ‘T’ plates ensure excellent quality results with minimum impact on the environment. We love to invite customers to our production facilities on Kingmoor Park, we are very proud of our factory based activities and we can guarantee you will be impressed. Our press is electronically linked to our Design studio, allowing us to upload jobs and monitor everything from our HQ on Warwick Road.
The Ryobi 755 press is one of the ‘Greenest’ litho presses in the UK:
· 40% less electricity than similar B2 presses
· Virtually Alcohol free printing
· Chemical FREE plates
· Chlorine Free and Recycle Papers
Digital printing is a more cost effective way of producing small full colour print runs and is ideally suited for leaflets, business cards, stationery, booklets, brochures, reports and mailing campaigns. The cost per print is higher than that of more traditional methods but this cost is offset by the savings made in the pre press department. Unlike lithographic printing, digital print machines do not require plates. Digital printing also allows for “on demand” short run products that can be printed and finished immediately.
Our finishing department demands both the latest automation and old fashioned hand precision. We have equipped our factory with the latest in high speed machinery but still employ traditionally skilled and highly trained staff to maintain and exceed our customers’ expectations. POLAR 78x high speed guillotine is one of the best machines available, it has increased productivity at the factory tremendously due to shortness of make ready times via block programming. It’s not just fast it’s extremely accurate, due to its internal DPS positioning system which gives a positioning accuracy of 1/100th mm.
The Europa is a fully automatic laminator for sheets up to B2 size. The machine is designed with today’s print-on-demand market in mind. Currently we offer 3 types of lamination to give your project that finishing touch, Gloss, Matt and NEW ‘Velvet” touch lamination.
Our Muller Martini stitching / collating line can collate, stitch and trim a 96 page plus cover (100 page total) booklet in one pass. It’s a true work horse producing over 5000 booklets an hour.
Perfect binding, die cutting, gold block foiling, embossing and other specialist finishing’s are all available at Print Graphic along with a host of smaller auxiliary machines for scoring, drilling, perforating and numbering.
We welcome relationships with independent and freelance graphic designers who need to source a reliable, established commercial firm to bring their design work to print. We have huge printing capacity, with both full colour high-speed litho and digital presses at our disposal – treating every print job with the same high standards of quality and importance.
