Gillingham Press

Digital Print, Short Run Print services in Gillingham, North Dorset, UK

Digital printing is produced using our Xerox Versant 180. This digital printing machine has SRA3 digital printing capability with exceptional colour resolution and printing quality. The most discerning of customers will be impressed with the rich, deep, true-to-life colours, precise registration and the professional uniform glossy finish and at a speed to satisfy any print-on-demand requirements.

Digital printing gives our customers the option of ordering smaller quantities that would just not be cost effective using other production methods and this reduces production expenditure. The digital printing process eliminates costs that would otherwise be incurred in the production of printing plates, the printing machine make ready and the materials to prepare for printing. 

Using a Fiery Network Colour Server to control the Versant 180, we can provide the ultimate in printing flexibility. Full electronic imposition is available to produce multiple printing or booklets from single page PDF files. If that wasn't enough, we can collate, fold, stabstitch, saddlestitch and hole punch as it prints.....

Our preferred file format is PDF (Portable Document Format), however, we can also accept Indesign files v2.1 (Mac), Pagemaker v6.5 (Mac), Illustrator v5 (Mac), Photoshop v6 (Mac), Word 2000 files (Mac/PC), Excel files (Mac/PC), MS Publisher 2000 files (PC), JPEG and TIFF files.  Please contact us to discuss the use of any other software file formats.

Printing stock size is from A6 (105 x 148mm) up to SRA3 size (320 x 450mm -ie. A3 size plus colour bleed) on grammages of 64 gsm paper up to 300gsm board weights.  Suitable quantities range from a single sheet up to quantity of about 500 sheets, determined by a comparison of costs with litho printing.  Printing resolution is an unmatched 2400dpi at the highest print quality setting.
