Digital Print at Standard Printers
Standard Printers are pleased to announce some exciting upgrades to our Digital Printing services.
We have just installed our new digital printing machinery that allows us to print, fold, and stitch books all in one go. This is a great time saving process that is ideal for low quantity runs (under 1000) of reports, brochures and other form of books.
We have updated our existing digital machinery to allow us to print larger size pages. Our maximum print size is now 364mm x 660mm - just short of A2. This brings great benefits in printing larger sized posters without the added cost of using plates. Also, this new format allows us to print three A4 sheets combined and fold them into a great looking brochure at an affordable price.
We are introducing low-cost spot varnishing. This is a great new digital solution for traditional Spot UV Varnishing, known as Clear Dry Ink. With Clear Dry Ink, you can highlight images for visual variety, making them pop off the page; draw attention to headlines and variable text; highlight photos, logos or variable images; create artistic effects; add watermarks and elegance to your digital print project.
Along with these great new updates to our Digital Print facility, we also offer high-quality litho printing for large run print jobs and the very best in sign and display solutions. Call us now to see a demonstration of our great new digital services and print products.
Act For Meningitis Calendar 2014
This week, Standard Printers completed and delivered the Act for Meningitis charity calendar for 2014. The calendar contains 12 original photographs of beautiful Galway scenes, by local photographer Johnathon McDonnell.
ACT for Meningitis is a non-profit organisation based in Galway, Ireland. It was established in 2011 by Siobhán and Noel Carroll, who in 2008 lost their precious daughter Aoibhe – aged 4 – to Meningitis. Since losing Aoibhe, Siobhán and Noel feel that there is an urgent need to increase awareness and educate people of the signs and symptoms of Meningitis.
The calendar will be launched in the coming weeks, and would be an ideal gift for the Christmas season. For more information on the Act For Meningitis charity, visit their website www.actformeningitis.ie
