Our presses, proofs and plates are calibrated to the ISO12647 colour standard, and interconnectivity between pre-press and the press room means ink ducts on press are pre-set from colour data before a single sheet is even printed, drastically reducing wastage.

Our KBA ten colour B1 perfecting press is also unique in the speed of make-ready. It can change ten plates for a new colour section in less than a minute, which gives massive cost and efficiency gains over older equipment. In fact it is one of the most advanced sheet-fed presses in the world……a far cry from the 1891 Golding & Co Treadle Press that stands in our reception and just the latest stage of our evolution in colour.
