Litho Printing

This is a method of printing at an industrial scale in which inks are transferred onto aluminium plates to make an impression. Our Heidelberg B2 sheet fed press enables you to print up to 40,000 A4 sheets per hour; producing high quality print, at incredible speed.

Used around the world for books, magazine and newspaper printing, its advantages in utilising spot/pantone colours means you are guaranteed colour quality, tone and finish; important for companies who want to ensure brand consistency on all printed materials.

Good for:

  • Large print runs
  • Printing spot/pantone colours
  • Printing large areas of block colours

Case Study 1

Beefayre is a Market Harborough business who specialises in using the very best of nature in their products. With a range of candles, room diffusers, bath and body products among others, beefayre's mission is to produce quality products at affordable prices, all made in the UK and beautifully packaged. It donates 3% of its profits to bee conservation.
Here at Ink we have been with them since the very beginning. We have truly got to understand their products, passion and absolute attention to detail. As their products are stocked in retail stores, all their packaging must colour match, every single time, on every single piece of print we do for them. We use a combination of digital and litho techniques to ensure complete consistency. We are happy to run hard copy proofs on every job and create mock-up and trials for when new products come onto the market.
We have become an extension of Beefayre's operations, now designing, printing, folding and fulfilling all their packaging and distribution needs, even sending filled orders to retailers and buyers across the country for them. From card wraps for candles, through to point of sale display stands and on-pack labels.

Case Study 2


This local company specialises in helping schools to thrive by applying business thinking to their development; including strategic planning, marketing, research, candidate search and recruitment, leadership development, governance and philanthropy.

We first started working with RSAcademic two years ago, producing their business cards, letterheads, brochures as well as their flagship report, Ten Trends which is produced in association with Coutts. This high quality, distinctive 280 page publication needed to be printed, bound and orders fulfilled by a company that appreciated the importance of this work.

Here at Ink we spent time with the authors to ensure we found exactly the right design, weight of paper, finish, bind and size for the book. Bespoke in style and distinct in finish, this is a project we are very pleased to have been involved in, it looks and feels exactly right. We utilised a mixture of digital and litho printing to ensure the best results for the client who, due to our efforts, have commissioned us again.

We are grateful for Ink for their support throughout this project. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly, the team went the extra mile to ensure our objectives were met. We're delighted with the end result.
