FULL SERVICE FROM CONSULTING TO DISPATCH
Full-service and state of the Art know how:
We guarantee the quality of all our printed products: folders, brochures, catalogues, leaflets, packaging, books, posters, notepads, labels and small print articles such as envelopes, stationery and business cards. Recently, we have also specialised in IML (in-mould-labels) and alphanumeric coding.
The all-round service we offer to our customers is the secret to our success. Quick response times, flexibility, and comprehensive professional expertise are some of the characteristics of our workplace – and because we print in three shifts all that happens around the clock!
The best road to perfection
The pre-press is the initial point and a central element of the printing process. With great sensitivity, and accuracy, our pre-press technicians apply their skills, which are supported by our high-tech machines. State of the art technology supporting re-conversion and data check as quality standard. Storage of all data of printing jobs guarantees a consistent high level of quality.
The advantage: high performance printing products due to a higher account and edge sharpness of half -tone dots.
Despite efficiencies generated by modern technology, the relatively large size of our pre-press team mean that they are available and happy to discuss graphic and technical details with our customers.
Editor: Trust is good, control is much better!
Our editor at BuLu reads through all print jobs thoroughly, corrects mistakes and also pays attention to consistent spelling. This service has sometimes saved some of our customers from embarrassing errors.
Perfect combination of high tech and craftsmanship
Colour profiles are transferred via computer to the printer, the printer then using a scanner does the fine-tuning. Modern technology is, therefore, a vital factor in the printing industry. Equally important, however, are well-trained and educated printers, who bring in their experience, know-how and their trained eye in the printing process in order to ensure brilliant colors and print results.
At the last stage cross-linked machines bring high levels of efficiency and low rates of error into the production process.
Printing equipment and set-up is another key driver
Latest generation printing machines, LPL-Technology and automatisation software enable high speed and quality. All printing equipment is centrally controlled by Prinect Pressrom Manager. AutoPlate XL fully controls simultaneous plate changing, whereas color and accuracy is monitored by CPC 24/32 and Prinect Inpress.
Our “Green Printing“ set-up reduces emissions, waste and resource usage to an absolute minimum
