Digital Printing, Offset Printing, Wide Format Printing
Perhaps not the cheapest, just the best value printer around
It's 2017! And we've grown up lots more, again. Newly installed is the incredible Xerox IGen 5 digital press, featuring amazing features, including matte finish effect, previously unheard of in digital printing, landscape capable publications, and the first BC digital installation handling super heavy 500+ gsm weight cover stocks. Colour management reaches new heights, with pressmatch quality, and automated on the fly colour calibration. We still have our newer Xerox Colorpress 800 with original glossy finish and spot varnish effect option, plus other digital presses and wide format devices including the newest HP large format inkjet latex printer.
New to 2017, we can now offer our super heavy 24 point PHATCARDS, which perform even as coasters, perfect for special events (such as weddings and other celebrations) and as the most impressive stand alone menus. The matte effect is more closely matched to traditional offset printing, but at digital pricing, making lower quantities affordable. And there has been so much demand for landscape books and catalogs, opening up to 24 inches wide when flat (9x12 landscape format), previously not possible, but now, thanks to the IGen 5, just a walk in the park. Combined with other existing services, including gloss UV coating and squareback finishing on saddle stitched booklets, we can provide the most brilliant results while remaining on budget in today's aggressive pricing environment.
And here is the best news...the premium for matte finish adds only 10% to the cost our traditional and unchanged glossy finish pricing! Check out all our listed product pricing page links to see our base pricing for our most popular items. Website ordering is still the best way to actually submit your order, featuring an updated online order and file upload experience. We have an online pricing calculator for perfect bound (softback) books, which includes spiral bound options, plus a pricing for large format inkjet products featuring volume and media variables, an of course, online pricing for our most popular digital and club-run offset printed products (business cards, postcards, rackcards, flyers, posters, brochures, programs, catalogs and much more). Ask about digital roll label printing, our newest frontier!
Finally, after decades of asking for files in CMYK mode, we are now printing in a G7/GRACoL gamut world (compared to the smaller gamut SWOP ICC profile historically used), and with an even greater colour range present on the IGEN 5, we are now asking for you to save your pdf, eps and tif files in original RBG mode (avoid converting back and forth between modes in your workflow), as the RGB spectrum is much wider than CMYK, so converts much more fully and pleasingly when rendered at the Fiery RIP to Xerox GRACoL CMYK output. What a difference just one year makes...
