Greener than lamination

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

We were one of the first companies in the country to invest in a UV coater. This equipment will coat any type of paper in a UV varnish (gloss or matt) and the finished product is recyclable and biodegradable (unlike most laminated products).

With the coater we can also pre-treat and print on specialised substrates that have previously been incompatible with digital presses.

Did you know we do VDP

Imagine shooting 1 or 100,000 arrows from a single bow simultaneously and having each one hit its intended target – right in the bulls-eye! – H.P. Indigo

Statistics show that variable data publishing is three times more effective than conventional marketing and we can combine personalisation and versioning on our Indigo 5500 – in any combination of content in a SINGLE print run. With conventional litho jobs the personalisation has to be overprinted.

Allow us to give you the profitable advantage.

We can print on much heavier substrates

With a recent upgrade to or HP Indigo Press we can print onto substrates up to 400gsm and 460 micron. For our customers this means they now have a huge range of paper and card textures at their disposal. “Our mood will improve by up to 46% when exposed to a positive picture….. and up to 29% when exposed to a positive tactile feeling.”

We can print onto the most amazingly tactile substrates – call in and have a feel!

Chairman swaps boat for Indigo Digital Press

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Here at Purely Digital we have a somewhat spurious link with the Ipex 2010 Champion of Print Benny Landa (founder of Indigo).

Besides having installed the H.P. Indigo 5500 press, our director Bill Gillott is a sailor – like Benny. Secret talks between Israel and Jordan took place aboard Benny’s yacht “The Eclipse” prior to the signing of the October 1994 peace treaty. Bill on the other hand sold his yacht “Easyeasy” to contribute towards the purchase of our Indigo press and, as she was lying off St. Maarten at the time, the secret negotiations prior to the formation of the company, took place in our kitchen.

It was in 1993 that Benny launched Indigo’s first digital press at Ipex and sixteen years later the future of digital printing is positive despite the credit crunch.
