High volume litho printing

Litho Printing in Edinburgh

Litho printing is the more traditional form of printing, and is suitable for higher volumes and smaller jobs that require exceptional quality. It’s also good for printing on heavier stock and for producing special colours – Pantone inks for example.

Our main production hub has massive print capacity. We can produce virtually unlimited quantities, so this type of printing is very useful for long run leaflets and flyers, as well as larger booklets and brochures.

The Environment

Print production in an ethical and environmentally friendly way is crucially important to us. Our hub’s Environmental Management System had independently accredited to ISO14001, which means that we are continually assessed on our environmental objectives, policies and plans.
