Digital print has seen rapid advances over recent years which is why we’re proud that we started developing our Digital offering 15 years ago. Our short run full colour digital department consists of both Xerox Versant and Konica Minolta BizHub with black and white print on a Xerox D110 – so we love producing high end full colour property brochures, newsletters & leaflets, through to black & white parish magazines!
2018 saw Vale step up into digital production print with the installation of a Heidelberg Versafire CP controlled through a Heidelberg Digital Front End server. The Versafire CP operates at a constant speed of 4,400 SRA3 sheets an hour, producing fine detail, consistency of image, duplexing 400gsm and ability to handle a wide range of stocks - including textured stocks and boards up to 450gsm. Utilising the banner funtionality we're now able to produce short run A4 landscape and 6pp A4 portrait promotional print.
We’re very proud about our litho roots but we’re even more proud that we’ve grown and added such a strong digital print to our offering. It gives us, and therefore our customers, the flexibility to order short runs of leaflets, business cards or invites, and in some cases have their work produced the same day. More often we’re able to print and despatch the following day – or customers are welcome to pop in and collect when complete.
Here at Vale we’re also unique in that we can finish pretty much all of our digital print work on-site, including laminating, binding, drilling or booklet-making. Take a look at our Finishing page to find out more.
