Virtual Artwork Department
Many printing businesses have a desktop publishing system which they use to create simple artwork in house, but they often find this is inadequate for more complicated jobs with colour scanning, logo creation or registration issues.

This is where our virtual art department can step in and take over behind the scenes. We create the artwork from the brief you give us (fax or email is fine) then we'll email a PDF proof back for you to either printing out on your own colour printer, or forward it on to your customer who need never know it was not produced by your company. Being online all day, we'll receive your email the moment you send it. Once the job is approved we can supply artwork or films, or email a press ready PDF file to a trade printing hub on your behalf.

We provide this service to many printing companies, who find our rates economical, service fast and efficient and their lives de-stressed from no longer trying to solve specialised DTP and pre-press problems instead of running their core business.

Film & Bromide Separations
Handling the formats the others can't, including Microsoft Publisher, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Adobe, Coreldraw and many others.

Typesetting & Design
We offer a full traditional typesetting & design service. Our extensive experience and knowledge with a wide range of printing processes helps to ensure that your project (no matter how big or small) is designed correctly from the start as well as being eye-catching and effective in communicating your message.

Colour Copying
We have a high speed digital colour photocopier networked with our design workstations for all your colour and black and white copying needs. Whether it be quick enlargements of photos, a short run of brochures or a single high quality presentation graphic this machine will handle it with ease. We can also bind and laminate your documents.

We offer scanning in black and white and colour up to 1200dpi to a variety of formats for different packages and uses.
Line Art - logos and other drawings
Photos - scanned and corrected to match your printing process.

Binding & Laminating
We can bind doucuments from a few pages up to several hundred and also laminate A4 and A3 sized originals.

File Conversion
We read, write and convert many formats (including Macintosh and Unix) onto a wide range of digital media. You'll be surprised at all the file formats we can handle!

Logo Reproduction
Where a scan of a logo is too cumbersome or not suitable (i.e. needs colour separations, or considerable enlargement) a redraw is probably the answer. The file can be supplied in a variety of high-quality formats including EPS, AI, PDF and native program files such as CorelDraw. With over twenty years experience in computer graphics, we have yet to see a design that is too complex to be perfectly reproduced. Multicolour logos include correct trapping.
