We like to know what’s going on at each level of a project’s process. So, we decided to go and visit some of our print partners to really understand just how our design and content make it onto pages and into our client’s hands.
Print Partner #1
Greeted by our first print partner, we are ushered into a warehouse filled with machines. Some machines look ancient and we are stunned to learn that they are still fully in use. Other machines are new, with silky fresh paper cycling through CMYK colour cylinders and coming out the other end printed with precision. We learn about each machine’s purpose and are captivated by a guillotine machine that crisply slices through large stacks of paper as if they are nothing.
Most impressive of all was a half-a-room-sized printer that is the only one of it's kind in the Southern Hemisphere. It specialises in super high quality prints and the team amaze us with a few samples that demonstrate its incredible, high definition capabilities.
Print Partner #2
Our next print partner specialises in billboards, banners, vinyl and all manner of signage! Walking us through their job process, we get an idea of just how many elements need to come together to ensure a perfect print outcome every time. They cycle through their projects at lightning speed without ever compromising on quality.
We are stunned by the sheer scale of the machinery involved in their work! Taking up a series of massive warehouses, this print partner was super impressive!
Print Partner #3
Our final print partner is super passionate about the beautiful world of foiling! We are wowed by the incredible selection of colours and finishes available and the ability to make everything look that bit more special and luxurious.
A custom foiling stamp is made for each job and as we watch an engineer pulls a single page from a machine to make sure the foil has been printed correctly. He can tell if it’s off by even the tiniest amount and it needs to be perfect!
Foiling leaves a lasting impression of luxury and class and adds an extra dimension to your product, positioning your brand above the rest when it comes to authority and prestige.
Now it's time to share all our knowledge with you! We look forward to helping you with your next print!
