Digital Print

Overview

Digital printing is one of the fastest growing segments of the printing industry. As a result, substantial technological advances have been made in recent years allowing digital printing to approach the quality of high-end lithographic printing.

Digital print offers an economical solution for many different types of short-run printed products because a digital printing press has minimal set-up costs associated with a production run. Catering for runs from 25 to 1,000, our digital press doesn’t compromise on quality. And, due to the quick turn around time of digitally printed products, we are sometimes able to offer a same- day printing service.

Technical

Our high quality digital printing facility has state-of-the-art equipment, combined with highly skilled operators to offer the best in short-run commercial colour and variable data work.

With the Konica C6501 digitial press, print is produced in colour and black and white, on almost any type of stock from 80 to 300gsm with a maximum image area of 350mm x 470mm (oversized A3 plus bleeds).

Proofing / Proofreading

When your artwork file enters our studio, we create a proof to ensure that we are in complete agreement on the appearance of the final printed product. A proof is a close representation of how your artwork will appear when it is printed and may be either a PDF or printed proof produced on our high-resolution Canon / Epsom inkjet proofing system. If your brief involves complex finishing processes we may recommend that a physical proof is created to demonstrate how the piece will be constructed, where it will be folded and the order of the pages.

We understand there can be nothing more disappointing than receiving a beautifully-printed job and noticing a typo in your copy so, unlike other printers, Acorn Press invests in a complimentary proofreading service for each and every job that passes through our pre-press department.

Print Finishing

Finishing refers to operations that are performed after the printing of your product such as cutting, perforating, binding and laminating.

We have a comprehensive finishing department which performs a wide variety of processes to enhance the function and appearance of your printed literature. For more complex print finishing requirements, we have a trusted network of finishing suppliers, meaning we can facilitate any type of print finishing.

Distribution

The final part of the print production process is distribution. Acorn is able to handle any type of distribution and fulfilment requests from the warehousing of printed items, call-off orders, shipping, the packaging and addressing, mailing to the correct recipients, and confirmation that the orders have been filled.

Our dedicated team of despatch co-ordinators can manage complex distribution requirements of any type and with our mailing and fulfilment partner based next door to our factory in Swindon we are able to offer a seamless print and mailing service for all of our clients.

Project Management

Print forms just one piece of a much larger picture. At Acorn Press, we always take the time to understand how print fits into our clients’ wider marketing activities so we can offer advice and suggestions to help them get the most from their campaigns.
