The digital print department produces hundreds of jobs every day, including training manuals, short run books, financial research reports at very fast turnarounds. With investments into the latest technology; six colour engines and five high speed black printers with integrated finishing (drilling, stapling, saddle stitching), we produce millions of impressions per month.
A comprehensive bindery area with perfect and wiro binding, saddle stitching and other finishing equipment allows the completion of jobs quickly and all under the one roof.
This On Demand Production Centre is operating flexibly within modern supply chains and distribution networks, inline with the technology driven changes in the communications industry.
Just in Time vs Just in Case
Printing digitally means avoiding setup costs compared to traditional offset printing. Small print runs are economical, materials can be produced in smaller quantities and with shorter lead times. There is no need for big expensive production runs that then need to be stored in a warehouse until they become obsolete.
This graph illustrates the difference in costs between offset and digital printing per item: There are high setup costs for offset, but with bigger volume runs it becomes the more cost effective printing method. Of course there are a number of other factors that matter, like the required print quality and stock availability.

Segmentation and Distribute and Print
Items can be customised for small groups (course participants; niche markets) or personalised to the individual recipient. Products range from personalised postcards or books to web to print applications that are created and ordered online, printed overnight and despatched the next day. Through our networks these documents can also be printed Australia wide or even simultaneously in other parts of the world.
