Litho Printing

For over 35 years high quality lithographic printing has been our core business. We have seen many changes over the years and have always kept pace with advances in printing technologies.


Our Heidelberg Presses use the latest impress control, this inline colour measurement device offers increased colour consistency by scanning every sixth sheet for register and colour balance.

By Pre-setting ink levels it also reduces the amount of paper wasted during the start of a print run. This coupled with our integrated workflow system enables us to meet the demand for shorter, low cost print runs, offering greater productivity and enabling us to print to the ISO12647 colour standard.

With further investment planned and our continual commitment towards sustainability we are able to suggest the most appropriate methods of production, finishing, enclosing and distribution providing all our clients with a fully comprehensive service.

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your work is in safe hands.

The Power of Ten

It has been a natural progression for us to move up to the Heidelberg Speedmaster B2 10 colour press. The press is a 10 colour 'perfector' which means that we can print up to 5 colours on both sides of the sheet in one pass, at up to some 15,000 sheets per hour.

As well as dramatically speeding up job turnaround times this will also enable us to compete more favourably on higher volume print jobs and increase our production capacity by around 35%.

The press is extensively automated through a central computer control system and enables the operator to control the entire press at the touch of a finger. This makes the press equally suited to both short and long run jobs alike.

With the recent installation of our new 'chemical free' plate making system, featured in the last edition of Impressions, we can now supply all four of our presses far more quickly and efficiently than before, not to mention with a far more environmentally friendly carbon footprint.

In our business colour and quality is vital, so it’s great to work with a printer whose commitment to both is equal to our own. The service we receive from Banbury Litho makes the whole print buying experience stress-free and we know our projects are in safe hands.
