We appreciate that completing online forms is a tedious process! As such we are working towards having more specific enquiry forms - asking the right questions for the specific type of printing. In the meantime please do your best to give us the necessary details in order to get back to you speedily and accurately!
We are working towards building a set of price lists for the various items we produce. Some are completed and some are yet to be started!

From short digital print runs to longer litho runs, we offer a great range of printing services including…
The following are a selection of some of the items we’ve printed - demonstrating our flexibility and versatility…
Pictured: A full colour litho printed presentation folder for Notts TV. In this example the blue pocket is made to hold a few inserts - but it can be made with a double crease to hold more inserts.
Pictured: Another full colour litho printed presentation folder for Christ the King Academy. In this example the folder has matt lamination applied to the outer covers and spot-U.V. varnish on top of the lamination. This great effect can be seen in the photo.
Leaflets and Brochures…
Pictured: A double sided, cross folded leaflet, printed in full colour. Technically a very difficult job to produce - ensuring that all the folds are exactly on top of the joins of the different colour sections.
Why is it called Saddle Stitching? Saddle Stitching may sound like an odd name for a book binding process that places wire staples through sheets of paper, but in the printing industry stapling is commonly called Stitching. Also, the collated sheets are draped over a Saddle-like apparatus during the stapling/stitching process, hence the name Saddle Stitching.
Pictured: Digital printing is a great solution for short run printing such as this saddle stitched brochure for the UK Theatre Bureau.
The quality of digital printing is now very high and without the set-up costs of litho printing - digital printing is a very cost effective solution for short run work.
Pictured: A selection of perfect bound books for Confetti.
Perfect Binding is a widely used soft cover book binding method. With this binding method, the pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong yet flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book are then trimmed as needed to give them clean “perfect” edges.
Perfect binding is commonly used for annual and corporate reports, manuals, catalogues, and thicker product brochures and magazines.
Benefits of Perfect Binding: The primary benefits of perfect bound books are that they look professional and offer visual appeal. They are less expensive to produce than hardcover books, and they stack well. Also, the square spinal edge formed by the perfect binding method allows for the book’s title or other information to be printed on the spine…something the saddle stitch and spiral binding methods do not offer.
Paper is measured in ‘gsm’, e.g. copier paper is normally around 80gsm and business cards are typically printed on 400gsm. This is not a measurement of thickness but paper weight. In the example of copier paper - one square metre of paper weighs 80 grams! By contrast, thicker cards and boards are measured in microns e.g. 500 micron box board or 2000 micron mount board. A micron is 1000th of a miliimetre so 500 microns = 0.5mm and 2000 microns = 2mm.
