finishing.


Being the final stage of the process this is probably one of the most important processes of all, it is where the transformation from flat sheet to the completed item occurs. Optimum care is taken to ensure that the finished article looks and feels the way it was intended to. Because of this we choose to be overcarefull, all work receives meticulous attention to detail, ensuring accuracy and a superior finish. It is our ability to perform a task with this level of precision each and every time that gives the finish on which we pride ourselves.

our finishes:

trim, crease and fold

trimming.

Our fully programmable EBA guillotine allows us to trim large quantities of print to your exact specifications, quickly and cleanly.

screw binding.

Where conventional methods just won’t do, screw binding might give you the edge you’re looking for. We can fabricate covers from all kinds of materials (see drilling) – talk to us and we can show you some samples.

laminating

Lamination overlays a microscopically thin layer of film on your printed material. This has several benefits including greater durability, additional thickness giving more presence and ‘Soft-touch’ finishes (matt and velvet laminates) for attractive textures.

Such is the demand for lamination that we’ve equipped ourselves to meet most of your requirements in-house. Our laminator can handle a range of laminate types including:
Gloss, Matt, Satin, Velvet, Anti Vandal/Graffiti, Biodegradable Gloss and Matt.
