A need for speed, we have it!
A need for higher quality, we have it!

Longer sheet size is better
It is easy to assume that printing on a larger sheet reduces production costs. This is typically the case with offset, where make ready time and associated costs need to be amortized across total production time.
A longer narrow sheet size enables:
New, larger-format applications to be migrated to short-run digital printing, where they can be produced to size in a highly efficient workflow. This includes various types of collateral, pocket folders, retail signage, dust jackets and point-of-sale materials. Just think of the options….
More efficient production of smaller jobs that are printed closer to finished size, requiring less handling and fewer cuts to finish, and generating less waste.
We offer the longer sheet with our new press.
- Sheet sizes 14 x 20.7 (imageable area 13.4. x 20)
- Sheet size 14 x 48 (imageable area 13.4 x 47.61)
