We use the very latest software, using both Mac and PC platforms allowing us to offer quicker turn around times. In May 2004 Heaton Press invested in Computer to Plate (CTP) technology. This has revolutionized the printing industry by omitting the film stage of plate making and increasing the quality of dot on the printed sheet.
This has reduced turnaround times and made the plate-making stages much more cost effective. Once design and plate-making is complete, the job reaches our press room, which now houses Heidelberg and Roland Presses, cutting and creasing equipment, MBO folder, two guillotines and in-house stitching. At each stage, one of our highly competent staff carries out checking and quality control to ensure that we make your print work for you.
In 2005 we installed a Heidelberg Speedmaster 74, 5 colour and coating, printing press. This enabled us to increase workflow and quality of print at a reduced price. However, this is indicative of many advances in the business – not just in the press room!
In 2018 we added our award winning Digital Printer to our press room, adding the flexibility and adaptability that has made low volume, print-on-demand digital print so popular in recent years.
Clients can be confident that we keep up with the latest technology, putting Heaton Press in a strong position to service any print or design & print requirement. So when searching for great design and print solutions, why not pay us a visit and see for yourself!
