Completing their recent £1M upgrade, which sees the company invest in a range of new equipment and software. Allan Kerr, the company’s founder and managing director said, “Our customers are used to the benefits of quick turnaround and colour accurate jobs from our digital devices, the UV technology will allow us to extend this to the larger volume jobs that were previously too expensive to produce digital. The new printing press is fitted with a colour management system that detects and adjusts minute changes before it can be spotted by the human eye, this ensures consistent colour accuracy on every printed sheet.”
