Spot UV Printing

November is due to see the installation of our brand new Autobond Digital Spot UV Machine. We will provide a bit more information in the next issue, but this machine not only brings more of the work we produce in house to aid turnarounds and efficiencies but, utilising the latest digital technology, produces stunning results on a number of substrates.

This, along with the flexibility offered by our H-UV Printing Press, ensures that, not only are the finished results looking top rate but that we are able to offer more versatile and bespoke solutions for our clients. 

Adding Spot UV to your work is a great way of setting yourself aside from the competition and giving that real professional look to your business and marketing material.

The Technical Area – Laminating Prevents Cracking

There are certain products such as folders and thicker covers on booklets which can, in certain circumstances show cracking along the folds.

This is not something printers can have a lot of control over and is down to the make-up of the material. We have always worked hard to ensure this is minimal – we only buy branded paper and card. Any folded printing on card is scored properly prior to folding, but modern materials are more prone to cracking partly due to finer and thicker coating methods.

This is something which has a much better chance of being visible if there are areas of heavy ink coverage running across folds and, although it is sometimes possible to design around it, the more effective solution is to opt for a laminate which will not only prevent your work from cracking but give it a much more professional look and feel as well as adding longevity.

Nowadays we do not just offer traditional gloss and matt laminating options but other finishes such as anti-marking or soft touch laminates are becoming incredibly popular. 

If you would like to discuss this further then just ring or email and one of our sales team can offer you all the expert advice you need.

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER OFFERS

We have a series of monthly offers to roll out over the next 6 months so keep an eye out for mailers and e-shots as well as our website for the latest deals!

This month, to really kick start the new price list, we have two offers on our range of Leaflets and Spot UV Business Cards.

THE TECHNICAL AREA

Within each issue of our Newsletter we will try to offer a bit of technical advice or simply to ‘de-jargonise’ any areas of print to hopefully make the process of ordering and preparing artwork for print a little easier.

ECO FRIENDLY PRINTING

WHAT IS BLEED?

You have probably heard the term used a lot and it can be a real issue when preparing artwork for print as, even though we will always try to fix any problems with files we are sent, it is often not so easy to add bleed.

Basically, any image or background colour which extends to the edge of the printed job needs to have another 2mm or 3mm of ‘bleed’ which is then trimmed off to ensure that there are no white edges showing once the work has been trimmed.

It is also sensible to keep any type or important information 3mm inside the trimmed edge in case of any movement when trimming.

We’re Offering  an Amazing 15% off Graphic Design Services!

We are pleased to welcome two new graphic designers to the Indigo Press studio, Laura Webb and Graham Ballem. To celebrate their arrival to our team, we’re excited to announce a 15% offer on all of our graphic design services until 29th February!

graphic design banner

With 25 years of design experience between them, they further enhance our expertise to develop creative ideas and concepts, choosing the appropriate media and style to meet our clients’ objectives.They are welcome additions to the team responsible for creating design solutions that have a high visual impact.

Their role involves listening to clients and understanding their needs before making design decisions. Creative flair, up-to-date knowledge of industry software and a professional approach to time, costs and deadlines are all essential qualities that the work requires to achieve consistent, high-quality results.

Laura Webb

Laura joined us in August 2015, with a graphic design degree and over ten years’ experience gained from an independent media agency in Winchester. Laura was individually responsible for producing three weekly publications and one quarterly, therefore she has a wealth of experience within advertising and page layouts. At Indigo Press she is now enjoying the opportunity to work on more diverse projects.

graphic design southampton

At Laura’s previous company she was the only designer, and is now thoroughly enjoying working within a great team, benefiting from a working environment where ideas are generated, shared and bounced around.

In 2014/2015 she left her old company to take a gap year, visiting 6 countries; Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Australia, the Philippines and Japan. There she was able to take part in a wide variety of activities including: Teaching, scuba diving, sky dive, trapeze, surfing, sailing, riding a moped, wake boarding and 6 weeks of Maui Thai (kickboxing) training. Travelling developed a strong desire in Laura to learn and face new challenges.

“I am interested in people’s interaction with the world around them, traveling, teaching and working as a graphic designer has enabled me the luxury to explore this in various ways.” Laura.


Graham Ballem

Graham joined us in October bringing 15 years of design experience, acquired at local design agencies. He has worked on many campaigns ranging from high profile brands to smaller local business promotions.

 His portfolio includes a broad selection of promotional material including brochures, catalogues, point of sale, stationery, packaging, adverts and flyers.

graphic designer southampton

Graham uses advanced knowledge of design theory and practice to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, and captivate consumers. Complete with a sound technical knowledge, this has allowed him to creatively follow through any design brief from conception to fulfillment, avoiding any pitfalls or potential difficulties on route.

With most graphic design work now created on computers using specialised industry-standard graphics and multimedia 
software packages, his keeping up to date with the latest developments in software is essential to delivering effective solutions.

“With two young children to keep me on my toes, keeping a healthy work-life balance is yet another welcome challenge.
Although a keen interest in photography and a love of Lego helps me keep creative, outside of the work environment.” Graham

The professional team at Indigo Press makes working closely with other colleagues on larger projects extremely effective.

New Komori Press For Printing Company in Southampton

We Welcome The 8 Colour Komori LS 829 Perfecting Press

Here at Indigo Press we are welcoming our brand new printing press – the 8 colour Komori LS 829 Perfecting Press. Providing shorter turnaround times, improved printing quality and greater efficiencies, Indigo Press can be more competitive on a wider range of specifications as we launch this new and exciting lithographic printing solution.

Komori Press

Our brand new press is the first perfecting version of the latest Komori H-UV technology in the country which will give Indigo Press and our clients some huge benefits.

One of the fantastic advantages of the ground-breaking technology our brand new H-UV Perfecting Press has to offer is that all work is now instantly dry as soon as it is printed. This also means there are no problems printing on uncoated or speciality stocks – colours on these materials will look better than ever before!

In addition, work can be passed through to the finishing stages such as laminating, trimming, folding and booklet making as soon as it is printed – with no more waiting for work to dry our turnaround times will be even quicker and you’ll have your printed products in no time at all. It also means that there are no more concerns about marking or set off which has always been an issue with litho printing – particularly on certain stocks.

With latest trends leading many brochures and corporate marketing to be printed on uncoated stocks, traditional litho presses struggle with this substrate, as drying can take an inordinate amount of time and even once it is as dry as it will get, there are still issues with marking and set off.  The H-UV instant drying technology means that no matter what material you choose for your project, the printing will be set completely dry by the time it comes off the end of the press.

This technology also allows Indigo Press to be more efficient on products such as landscape A4 books, 6 page A4 brochures amongst other formats.

Printing Company Southampton

The brand new Komori Press offers new levels of high quality products, efficiency in set ups, increased quality and service levels whilst reducing our environmental footprint further. This allows us to be even more competitive both locally in Southampton, Hampshire and throughout the UK.

As well as the huge advantages offered by the H-UV technology, as this perfecting press is replacing a 9 year old standard 5 colour straight machine, the new press also increases our capacity by around 30% to 40% and offers a host of automated features far in advance of those even on the standard 10 colour perfector, which has been the flagship at Indigo Press for the past 5 years.

The new Control Desk for the LS 829 H-UV offers much more automation and allows the operators to concentrate more on the important task of ensuring the job looks as good as our clients have come to expect from us.

Contact Indigo Press

If you can’t wait to have your new business cards, flyers, brochures, banners and more printed using our state-of-the-art 8 colour Komori LS 829 Perfecting Press then get in touch with Indigo Press today.

You can place your order by phone, email or even through our online quoting system. Our experienced team is always on hand to offer help and advice if you should need it.

Brochure Printing Tips

The type of paper and finish you will choose for your brochure is only as good as the content you put into it.  You want to make sure you take time to get the right message across.

  • Create curiosity with an eye catching front cover. The front cover needs to persuade the reader to look inside and read on. We recommend you go with the tip, ‘less is more.’ Keep things clean and simple, with concise language to convey the key benefits of your business.
  • Break up text with catchy headlines. Headlines will help break up your text but will also allow readers to scan your brochure quickly. How will your services benefit them? Tell them in your headlines.
  • Be personable and engaging. Try addressing the reader and stay informal rather than corporate sounding.
  • Include unmissable call to actions. You want to tell your reader clearly, what their next step is. Give clear instructions to your website and contact details.

Bleed and Margins

Before printing your brochure it is important you have the correct Bleed and Margins. A full bleed means that your image extends beyond the edge of the page on all four sides.

Why Does Your Brochure Need To Add Bleed?

Once your brochure has been printed, the press sheets will be folded, bound and trimmed. There is a certain margin of error which comes on these finishing steps. A Bleed makes it easier to avoid issues such as these which can be due to mechanical limitations, operator errors and the behaviour of paper.

BleedExample

Generally the bleed amount it set to 3mm. Larger brochures may require a bit more bleed – the bleed requirement will vary from one brochure to another. It’s best to set the bleed before any printing or design as once everything has been finalised, modifying the Bleed can be tricky.

Common Sizes For Brochure Printing

The most common paper sizes for brochure printing are A4, A5 and A3. A4 is probably the most popular when it comes to creating a brochure. In fact, it’s the most used paper size in the world. Designs on an A4 brochure will usually be a folded A3 page – this is why it is important that you consider your bleed and margins before printing.

Corporate-Sliders-x5-v2-2

A3 Brochures

An A3 brochure will have a greater visual impact compared to smaller sizes. A3 brochures are folded A2 pages and are recommended for brochures with fewer pages. An A3 brochure will give you additional space to get creative with images so can be a great choice for businesses looking to showcase a series of products.
