With Anton's entire production now under one roof, the digital division has become the fastest growing department and is now one of the UK's largest digital production outfits, boasting 8 Kodak Nexpress engines.</p> <p>Having stepped into digital in 2002 with their first Nexpress, Anton's digital division played a very small role in the business, and employed just two staff.

Currie's Print Centre Installs UK's First Duplo Mini Suction Booklet System

<p>July 12, 2011 - Currie’s Print Centre in West Lothian has become the first UK customer to install a Duplo Mini Suction collator system. Purchased from Well Finished, the system combines Duplo’s new suction-fed DSC-10/20 collator with the DBM-120 stapler-folder giving a finishing line capable of up to 2,400 booklets per hour.&#160;&#160; </p> <p>Established 36 years ago, Currie’s Print Centre is a family owned company and is one of the area’s longest running businesses. Under the leadership of Managing Director, Graeme Currie, it has expanded from a traditional litho printer to a full graphic design, litho and digital print service provider. Through careful planning, investment and prudent financial management Graeme has been able to grow the company through the recession, winning new contracts and even taking on new staff.&#160; </p> <p>Currie’s Print Centre focuses on the local area and has built up a substantial client base that includes some high profile national and international names. The company produces the football programmes for many local sides including Livingston. Until the investment in new Duplo equipment, Currie’s was using a small friction collator and bookletmaker but as Graeme explains it just wasn’t up to the job, “About 40% of our work these days is produced on the Bizhub and the little friction collator was just too slow and unreliable on glossy stocks. Even when it did feed; we’d get marking so we had to send a lot of bookletmaking work out”.&#160; </p>


Jubilee Greenwood Benefit From New Duplo Compact Bookletmaking System

<p>June 28, 2011 --&#160; Jubilee Greenwood Press have installed the new Duplo Mini System 3500, the first of its kind in the UK which in a single job, has saved them £4500. </p> <p>Based in High Wycombe, Jubilee Greenwood are the product of a merger between Jubilee Press and Greenwood Press. With over 60 years of experience between the two companies, the merger in 2010 gave them the strength to prosper during a tough time for print.</p> <p>The two companies had previously outsourced work to each other, in particular bookletmaking, with Greenwood Press already operating a Duplo System 2000. Following the merger, demand for booklets increased significantly, sparking the need to upgrade. Since joining forces the company's greater financial position enabled the investment for a new line, however having failed to secure new premises at the time of the merger, space was a huge issue and justified the decision for the new compact solution from Duplo. Director Mark Cooper explains:</p> <p>&quot;Over the past 12 months, the demand for bookletmaking has grown enormously. Having had Duplo systems for over 12 years, we have been more than satisfied with the quality of the products Duplo offer and the service we have received. Our concern however, was space. With 4 offset presses already filling our print room, we had limited space in which to fit the system.&quot;&#160; </p> <p>The release of Duplo's new Mini System 3500, consisting of the DBM-350 mid-range, stitching bookletmaker and the new DSC-10/20 compact suction collator was perfectly timed. &quot;As soon as we saw the new system, we knew it was the right fit for our business, both in terms of size and functionality,&quot; says Cooper.</p>


St Ives Direct Choose Duplo Coater for Royal Mail Contract

<p>14 Jun 2011 - St Ives Direct the Direct Marketing Services division of the St Ives Group have purchased a Duplo Ultra 205A UV Coater to enable them to &quot;automate and streamline&quot; their productivity for a large Royal Mail contract.</p> <p>St Ives, supplier of print management services to the iRed Partnership a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Mail, announced in October that it had provided the engine for the postal service's new Direct Mail service, Mailshots Online.</p> <p>The Leeds based site has HP Indigo 3500 and WS3200 presses which are used to print the daily run of direct mail items downloaded from the Mailshots Online service. This could be anything from 500 to 20,000 pieces per day. Then to protect the print, the sheets were, in the old process, laminated which formed a problematic part of the workflow, explains Lead Printer Ian Casey.</p> <p>&quot;Laminating does provide a nice finish to the printed sheet, however it is not particularly practical for this type of contract. The laminator doesn't have particularly quick running speeds; it was creating something of a bottleneck. There are also quality issues with laminating which can be susceptible to peeling when being passed through what is today a highly automated and mechanised mailing infrastructure within the Royal Mail,&quot; says Ian.</p>
