Crewe printers installs new printing press
April 23, 2010 by Lyndon
The Printing House, a print company in Crewe, recently installed a new printing press and put it to work in under 15 minutes. The new digital printing press installed at Crewe printers, The Printing House, took under an hour to install and configure and was immediately put to work printing out flyers and posters for clients.
Peter Harrison, the joint Managing Director at The Printing House, commented on his print firm’s new kit:
Unlike traditional ink-based presses, which can take days to bed in, the new digital units are ready to start production of Business Cards, Leaflets, Posters etc almost immediately.
He had it up-and-running in 15 minutes and he swears he will have it walking and talking by the end of the week!
The Printing House needed this extra machine because of the high demand for digital printing coming from the company’s website. With the new printing press installed, wait times on print orders can be greatly reduced and capacity can be increased.
While the new machine is very high-tech, one of its best features is that it is so easy to use. 19-year-old Darren Cogger is running the new printing press at The Printing House, showing that very little experience in the print industry is required to operate the latest printing presses.
Mr Harrison added:
Darren is a local lad who really understands this technology and he sees the new press very much as his baby: He had it up-and-running in 15 minutes and he swears he will have it walking and talking by the end of the week!
This is the second print machine that has been bought by The Printing House recently, and follows a Mimaki Large Format JV33 – which was specifically brought in to produce larger items, such as banner printing in Crewe.
