Digital printinghigh quality short runs, super-fast turnaround

Digital print, once considered the poor relation of litho, now offers a wealth of opportunities for high quality short runs, personalisation, super-fast turnaround, prototyping, mock-ups, samples and one-off presentation jobs. And here at AB Print Group, we’re able to offer both small and large format digital printing for everything from leaflets and brochures to display and POS materials.

Recent years have seen major investment in digital print technologies here at AB, giving us the capability to print pretty much anything and everything digitally: leaflets, posters, brochures, folders, stickers, POS, window vinyls, signage, banners and more.

Small format digital print, big opportunities

Our small format digital printing capabilities allow us to print up to B3 with Pantone matching and optional spot colour. We can offer in-line high gloss varnishing and we can print on anything from 60 gsm newsprint up to 400 gsm board. We can personalise, we can prototype, and we can pull out all the stops when you need it yesterday. We can handle variable data for individually addressed direct marketing materials (and manage collation and fulfilment too).

And with our extended NexPress system (see below), we are the only printer in the immediate region able to offer digital printing of oversize folders, landscape brochures etc.

Large format digital print, even bigger impact

Our large format digital print service offers the same benefits, only on a much bigger scale.

Typical applications include POS/POP, signs, indoor/outdoor signage, posters, header boards, standees, window decals, display graphics, wall charts, shelf strips, backlit displays, boxes, show cards, exhibition panels, membership cards, pop-ups, twist system etc., but this is only the tip of the iceberg.

We can print directly onto substrates up to 30 mm thick (eliminating mounting costs). We can offer edge-to-edge printing. And we can do it all fast and cost effectively, giving you an attractive alternative to screen printing for short run requirements.

Our digital printing plant list

Our policy of investment enables us to offer an unusually broad range of digital print solutions, from low cost short run digital printing from A4 right through to large format display materials.
