Our Processes

From start to finish your magazine will go through every department within our premises, as follows:

ESTIMATING
Our Estimating Team are responsible for sharpening their pencils to achieve the most competitive price available for your publication. We offer good advice and customer service and will go that extra mile to help. Your Estimator will be able to advise you on any aspect of your print requirements, from the paper stocks we hold in-house, to specialist papers, free samples, the different types of finishing, binding, through to the final mailing and/or despatch of your job.

SCHEDULING
We will establish a production and delivery schedule with yourselves to ensure that your magazine will be delivered on time, every time with good communication throughout.

Take a look at our File Supply page or call a member of our team who will be willing to help – no matter how big or small your job is.

PRINTING
Being part of the Stephen & George Group has allowed us to benefit from their continual re-investment programme. This is demonstrated within the Press Hall with five Heidelberg XL106 presses. We have one of Europe’s most modern sheet-fed Press Halls. Four of our five presses are equipped with the latest CutStar reel-to-sheet technology and all presses are fitted with Prinect Inpress control colour measurement systems enabling us to provide our clients with the highest quality of print. Prinect Pressroom Manager centrally controls every operation in the pressroom and manages the relevant job information and production data. Colour pre-setting data are automatically calculated by Prinect Pressroom Manager, which, at the right point in time, delivers them together with the job data to the integrated presses and colour measurement systems. This automation delivers a significant increase in productivity and more transparency in the pressroom.
