GEW Customer Spotlight C&D Print Media


C & D Print started off as a repro
house many moons ago, and with the advent of new technology, print was turning into
a one-stop shop so we had to venture in and we bought our first printing press
about 14 years ago. Today we have three presses, one of which is the Speedmaster
74 with LED UV curing. A benefit of LED UV that stands out a mile is the removal of
set off, because it’s instantly dry when it arrives at delivery in the press. It has
the advantage of printing on plastic and mirror board, non-absorbent substrates
because of its instant drying ability. The five-year warranty was a
definite peace of mind, because being a newer technology for us there is a
nervousness about venturing into it. The installation took two working days
and on the third day we were in production, producing clients printing
material. The differences make a printer’s life so much easier, having to print
without the use of spray powder is a massive bonus. You can turn a job so
much faster, just take it out, take it up the other end, turn it over and there’s
no worry about any marking. We can follow on with any process straight away, so it
can go to lamination, trimming, folding etc. straight away with the hour. We
actually in the last two months have done jobs on there, two to four thousand
copies – so it demands a litho press – but they’re wanted the following morning! If we hadn’t got that system we wouldn’t have been able to produce that job for a
client on time. If you’re looking to compete with digital side of things,
UV’s the future, this is the answer. It’s one of those things where
you wonder how you got along without it.
