Prom Print Digital have more than seventeen years’ experience printing between 100 and 120 jobs each month, from business cards to 32pp brochures. That’s a lot of files in all sorts of formats, and it’s made us good at anticipating issues and solving the problems involved.
Our Press produces 2000 SRA3 sheets an hour onto a wide range of papers, films and self-adhesive materials from 80gsm up to 400gsm. To compete with the press performance and the opportunity for longer personalised print runs, we have added auto creasing to our in-house finishing along with booklet making, tab cutting, perfect binding, case making equipment and hot foil stamping.
Fewer outsourced finishing activities means a tighter control over completion times. Digital means FAST – and 90% of our jobs are processed, printed, finished and despatched same day. With so many variables in the print process we don’t have a price list. We use a database that accurately calculates data processing, personalisation, paper costs, and finishing on a per page basis, and printing costs per colour.
We excel at fine quality fast response work – 80% of our work is completed within 24 hours, only where there is complex finishing does it take longer. We have many clients among the local design community, a number of corporate clients, and a growing number of local businesses who now buy their own print… all require a consistent and reliable service.
Our in-house print finishing capabilities include Guillotining, Tab cutting, Creasing, Folding, Laminating (small quantities), Encapsulating, Drilling, Duplexing and Mounting. Binding: Saddle-Stitching, Wire-O-Binding, Coil Binding, Hard-back Casemaking, Perfect Binding, and Stab Stitching.
Die cutting, kiss-cutting and large quantities of laminating are all put out to specialist print finishers. An extra 24 hours should be allowed if your job requires any of these processes. Call us for more information about lead times.
We print SRA3 as a flat sheet size, but bear in mind the maximum image area is 308x450mm, sufficient to print an A3 image with bleed and crop marks on all edges. We can print on most papers and boards from 115gsm to 350gsm, including self adhesive, recycled and clear and opaque films.
A swatch book of our most common board weight substrates is available on request. All our coated house stock is 50% recycled. We can run all the paper stocks offered by paper merchants (GF Smith, Antalis, Premier Paper, etc.,) and some specialist papers may require Sapphire coating before we can run them through our press.
WHAT’S MORE NATURAL than print and paper. It is the ever-present communications medium that can be re-used again and again. Print and paper has a great environmental story to tell. Each year in Europe, where 94% of the paper we use originates, the forest cover is increasing by an area four times the size of London, and more than 60 million tonnes of paper is being recycled!
All of our House coated stock (Gloss and Silk) is 50% recycled and 50% FSC approved.
