Utilizing the synergies within the Group, we can help you with all your DTP needs, whether it is a printed book, brochure, sales literature, flyer, company report or manuals. As we have our own digital printshop, we can deliver multilingual publications, even books with very short deadlines.
Weaknesses of traditional offset printing
Traditional printing involves a lot of work phases (imagesetting, plate production, washing, tuning, etc.) that must be done (and paid) whether you buy one copy or ten thousand. A separate task is to collate the sheets and if there are serious errors, you basically have to start the process all over again.
Weaknesses of office printing
There are many computer printers today that produce close to photo quality - but at a very high cost and low production capacity. You also need special paper. On the other hand, those devices (departmental printers) that can print a large quantity, are usually much behind real digital presses in terms of color gamut, shades or the ability to be calibrated. Usually your choice of paper is limited, too... who would not recognize those cheap namecards printed at the mall?
Benefits of digital printing
Digital printing offers a convenient and ideal solution for many jobs. It is possible to print personalized jobs quickly and flexibly, cost-effectively even at short runs, with a foreseeable cost. You don not have to order more copies than you need and do not have to pollute the environment just because a telephone number has changed. When you see the first printed copy of the final product, it is still possible to modify the job without horrible costs incurred. It is no problem to create one-off versions of the usual material. The materials you can print on is wider than with laser printers and the printing quality can be managed very strictly. Because of the technology, you do not have to live together with parts that started to wear out (e.g. a scratched roll); they can be replaced at once.
What should I NOT use digital presses for?
Digital presses either use only black or four colors. You cannot print spot colors (like gold). Long runs are cheaper to print on offset machines. In case of extra large sizes and outdoor usage, you need special poster printers. You cannot use certain materials (cardboard, too "creative" papers, heat-sensitive material).
We may not be a huge printshop but we offer finishing and binding services that are among the best. In fact, very few companies offer perfect binding like us. Here is a short list of our finishing services (and their limitations). Because the price of finishing and binding heavily depends on the amount ordered, please contact us for quotes.
We can provide you with other cutting and scoring jobs via our subcontractors at decent prices.

We can produce books in small runs for your custom needs at low prices. Using our fast and cheap book printing services means you do not need to preproduce and stock up large quantities - have as many copies as you truly need.
A very big advantage of custom book printing that before ordering new batches, it is possible to make corrections. With traditional litho printing it is not really possible (or only at a high surcharge) because there are films and plates produced for the pages of the book and it simply costs too much to reproduce these for a small change. In the case of digital printing everything is processed in digital format, on computers, with practically no costs.
If needed, we can help you with the imagesetting and proofreading tasks as well - all you have to care about is the content.
A few examples what custom book printing is excellent for:
Four-color, up to SRA3 (11"x17") sizes, sheets up to max. 300g/m2 weight.
wood and glass materials.
up to 50-60 books/hour.
We are also using a number of folding, hole punching and drilling, laminating and wire binding devices, to be able to provide you with the widest range of finishing and binding services.
