We specialise in providing our customers with a total print solution and all under one roof.
Design and Pre-press Services
Alltrade can offer you a full graphic design facility. From taking a client's initial brief and interpreting it to produce imaginative and creative solutions. A real advantage is our experience and technical expertise not just coming up with pretty graphics, but a thorough understanding of what works best in print! From a leaflet to a multi page full colour glossy catalogue, we can turn a simple sketch into attention grabbing literature. We can produce agency quality original artwork that will project the right message to your target audience.
We have a comprehensive range of software applications on both Apple Macintosh and PC formats. We also have full in-position software for accurate planning of jobs.
If artwork is supplied by the client, we will carry out thorough pre-press checks to ensure any problems are corrected and run a digital colour proof and request approval of the in-position proof prior to print at no extra charge to the client. Match-print proofs or wet-proofs (proofing on the press) may also be run at an additional cost.
Alltrade Printers began printing in 1983 on the classic Heidelberg GTO 46. We have always believed in investing in the latest Heidelberg technology and every few years the print equipment is upgraded to keep abreast of latest features and industrial advancements. Currently we are printing on B1 5 colour, B2 5 colour (both with in-line coaters) and a B2 2 colour perfecting Heidelberg presses. All are kept in immaculate condition, serviced and calibrated by the manufacturer to produce the quality of work that we believe is the hallmark of Alltrade Printers.
We run split shifts to enable continuous runs and to maximise our production capacity.
Alltrade has always believed that state-of-the-art finishing equipment is vital if the job is not to be let down in the final stages. It’s economical and greener, cutting out extra costs and transport involved having to send work to finishing houses.
We have therefore invested heavily in folding, gathering and stapling machines, collators, guillotines etc, to be able to provide a host of finishing services to our clients.
In addition to the basic finishing service we have also installed a laminator, bulk horizontal collator, fully automatic calendar wire binding line plus bulk flow shrinkwrappers. We can even label shrink wrapped products inline – pre and post wrapped!
Our professional, experienced and dedicated team are a great asset to help get work out on time and to a required level of finish.
We cater for additional specialist print requirements such as scanning, archiving, diamond screening, gloss UV varnishing, perfect binding and die-cutting.
We are also able to provide print management services; let us take the headache of managing and distributing your print stock. If you are a large volume printed matter user with multiple sites we can help you keep your head office costs down by letting us hold your print items 'in stock'.
