Plant List

We currently have six state-of-the-art printing units and the unique Eltex Remoist System, which allows us to virtually eliminate web offset wave. When teamed with sheet-fed covers, this ensures that text web growth is never an issue.

We operate closed loop ink control, which gives us consistent, high-match proofing and we also offer a range of unique services, (spine gluing and inline stitching on our 40 PP short grain is available at only one other UK printer). Our short grain press has proved to be very popular with publishers and catalogue companies alike, because of the huge paper savings that can be made, whilst still producing popular sizes in both stitched and perfect-bound publications.

We produce B2B catalogues from 16 PP through to 2400 PP, which are finished in our bindery and mailed direct from our factory through one of our three dedicated mailing lines.
