Our facilities

Working flat-outFlatbed printing

With a host of ‘pure’ flatbed printing machines, including the UK’s first Mimaki JFX500, we are able to produce print, unitry & signage quickly with no compromise on quality. With a printing bed in excess of 3 x 2m, there’s little we can’t accommodate – from the regular aluminium faced panels through to whole double doors and window panes. UV sealing weather-proofs our print to an incredibly hard-wearing standard, even without our range of laminates. Brilliant white spot inks and spot varnish give an even wider range of possibilities, from selective opacities to raised gloss highlights. See what our flatbed range can do for your business.

Around the clockRoll-to-roll printing

Our roll-to-roll machines have been the workhorses of our print & production department for over two decades. Each of our machines has a role, from print & cut machines which produce perfectly calibrated kiss-cut self-adhesive stickers, to our 8-colour machines with CMYK, light magenta, light cyan, light black & orange inks, which gives an increased colour gamut and render skin tones like nothing else on the market. No wonder we’re the first choice for some of the World’s biggest cosmetics brands!

As well as our 3.2m wide, dual roll hybrid machine, we have a host of roll-fed printers which allow us to produce unparalleled quality print on vinyl, fabric, wallpaper and magnetic to name just a few. Our machines run around the clock to enable us to keep up with the unique world of POS deadlines. See what our roll-fed range can do for your business.
