Delivering the ‘Art’ of Printing
Have you ever wondered how your everyday newspaper, favourite magazine or that cherished book was printed? These commonly printed publications are the result of offset printing, which is the standard practice for such materials.
Print volumes determine the method of printing to be used, either digital or offset. Although time consuming, the offset technique is ideal for the production of vast quantities of a particular item on diverse substrates.
Our offset printing is done on a sheet-fed press, a high-quality printing method for quantities of about 500 to 100,000 pieces and much more.
We offer a diverse selection of sheet-fed presses that can accommodate up to 6 colours, giving you photo-realistic results plus special effects such as metallic inks or varnishes on the same sheet. Star Printery is also the only printer in Fiji that has a B1 printing press.
Our ‘perfecting’ press can print both sides of the paper in one continuous process by turning the paper over while it’s printing. Sheet-fed printing offers a wide variety of paper choices; printing techniques and print finishing that allows you to unleash your creativity, lifting the image of your product.
We have the following equipment for sheet-fed printing:
- 3 x Komori B2 presses
- 1 x Komori B1 press
- 3 x 2 colour Fuji Shinohara perfecting presses
- 2 x 1 colour Fuji Shinohara presses
Komori printing machines are the flagship of the sheet-fed equipment, with upto 6 printing units, plus coating units (aqueous) and semi automation. With its system, these machine’s are able to communicate from the console to the printing units.
The inline coater adds a clean coat of gloss or matt aqueous coating to the sheet. This can also be customised to spot aqueous coating. Economical for commercial short to long runs; including brochures, magazines, annual reports, flyers, packaging boxes etc.
