OUR PRINTING SERVICES
Associated Printers offers a diverse range of print solutions from offset sheet printing with complex folds to simple one colour business cards, as well as short run and large format digital printing. Working in a fully integrated print environment allows us to track each individual job from quoting right through to printing and delivery – ensuring we are on time, every time.
Offset printing is a commonly used technique where an inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. This method is recommended for large quantity, high quality print jobs such as brochures, books and packaging.
Digital printing refers to the method of printing from a digital-based image/source directly to print material. This form of printing is recommended for smaller print quantities and less complex print jobs, for example business cards and flyers.
Large format refers to any imaging format of 4×5 inches (102×127 mm) or larger, allowing for the printing and application of large posters, displays or signage.
Associated Printers choose to use environmentally friendly solvent inks made from totally renewable resources. These inks offer equivalent colour coverage and longevity to regular inks while being friendly on the environment.
We have extensive experience working with metallic, fluorescent and other specialty ink products enabling us to achieve any desired effect.
We are also able to add finishing effects such as inline gloss, satin, matt and high gloss UV vanishing. These can be applied as an all over varnish or can be spot vanished to create an additional look or feel impact. Laminating is also available and samples can be supplied upon request.
Professional binding services are available for a diverse range of formats. We offer standard binding options such as saddle stitching, perfect binding or section sewn and also offer specialty binding including spiral, comb and wire-bound binding. Whatever your requirements, we can deliver!
We work with a number of preferred suppliers as consistency in quality is important to us and our clients.
