Maximum creativity with the benefits of digital.
If the digital printers of today landed not too many years ago, people would say “What is this witchcraft? What sorcery lies beneath to create such masterful magic?” And we mean magic. These printers allow you to realise your creative ambitions whilst maximising the benefits of a digital printing press. You can now combine the value digital is known for:
- Variable data (text or graphics),
- Short runs,
- Quick turnaround
with speciality effects in the same run. And that single pass is an important step forward. As your work doesn’t need to go through the press more than once, it ensures you get a much tighter registration and higher quality result.
The innovation contained within digital printing technology finally makes it easy to accurately bring your creativity to life and wow your customers.
Speciality finishes such as varnishes and foiling create eye-catching marketing communications or printed materials that help you deliver the right impression. But likewise when printing gold or silver, which can also be problematic, these finishes previously came at a cost.
Digital changes that. You can now combine four-colour imagery with two speciality inks including:
- Metallic hues,
Yep, clear ink. And white ink. Watch what people think about the colour white in print.
Real metallic effects, used on their own or layered over conventional four-colour print, deliver stunning iridescent colours that create more ‘wow’. And using white ink now means you can unlock more choice by selecting wonderful colour board and print over the top! Creating new opportunities for unique designs and delivering a brilliant, precise finish.
And of course, clear ink or metallics, when used as a spot colour over text or graphics, create a stunning effect. Even when these areas are personalised!
Want to use more than one spot colour speciality effect? No problem. Want to cost-efficiently achieve more impact through results driving speciality effects? No problem.
Want to digitally print gold, or digitally print silver? No problem.

The digital print solutions we use enables us make even more improvements. The technology packed inside requires less heat and therefore reduces our energy consumption on press from over 4 watts per 2 sided A4 page to just over 1 watt. A significant reduction. It also reduces paper waste and the amount of ink used.
Again, more pleasing benefits that help reduce our impact on the environment.
