The reprographics departments are
equipped with the latest computer systems on the market today in
both IBM and Apple Mac platforms. We have the ability to produce a
wide variety of output formats. We have our own in-house
imagesetters and offer the service of out-putting final films and
bromides ready for 4 colour litho printing, either from disk
supplied or from our own artwork facilities. This service is
available to clients wishing to use our printing service or to
those who wish us to produce films and bromides on a bureau
We have been operating computer to plate systems (CTP) at our head
office site for the past 3-years and recently installed CTP into
our commercial plant. CTP enables printing plates to be produced
without the use of films or negatives, thus cutting costs to the
client. Other advantages of CTP is that the repro-department has
become a fully-digital work flow with press calibrated inkjet
proofs for 4 colour process work and 4 colour laser proofs for
general litho print.
All print artworks produced by us or the client are supplied with 4
colour proofs or short run digital copies as standard prior to
printing. This enables the client to finalise jobs before an
expensive print run is commenced.
The departments also have high resolution Linotype Scanners that
can handle any form of original from 35mm negatives to A3 flat
artworks. We are able to scan direct to disk or we can insert
images into the client's documents. If you require web pictures, we
can produce these quite easily at very low cost.
Design and artwork is another service that the department offers.
We have the ability to design and produce artworks from simple
business cards to multi-page colour brochures, booklets,
newsletters and magazines. We can also supply clients with the
necessary graphics and pictures if they want to incorporate them
into their website.
