…with finishes and varnishes including spot UV, foil blocking, embossing, metallic papers and gloss and matt finishes. We can also add security details and duty declarations with special inks and coatings.

Our repro and pre-press facilities are on site, meaning every one of our jobs is characterised by colour consistency, rigorous quality control and attention to detail.

We also have a Lombardi label punch, giving us the capacity to print large and over-sized labels, with a maximum punch size of 360 x 360mm.

All of our finishing machines are designed to get the most out of each sheet, making your job more cost effective, and environmentally responsible: we currently recycle 100% of our factory waste.
