PRINT – THAT’S WHAT WE DO

Established in 1969 and based in Bedminster, Bristol, Doveton Press Limited are a complete ‘in-house’ lithographic sheet fed printing company with digital print capability.

We offer the full ‘start to finish’ service in house as well as the very latest print technology. It is our mission to provide a helpful, all round print experience which, is easy to use, environmentally friendly, economic and reliable; we aim to deliver consistently high quality products to an ever increasing customer base that choose to return to us time and time again.

LITHO PRINT

Lithographic print has been around for decades and is the application of ink and water onto paper via rollers.

LITHO PRINT

It is a more time-consuming process than printing digitally, but better for spot colours and larger runs.

DIGITAL PRINT

Gone are the days of oil-based colour photocopiers that only printed onto cheap 80gsm material.

DIGITAL PRINT

Faster turnaround times, no minimum quantity, on almost any stock.

LARGE FORMAT

Large Format is anything over A3 in size.

LARGE FORMAT

With a printing width of almost four feet and a 120cm roll, the possibilities are endless.

In 1997, we became only the second company in the UK to purchase a Cymbolic direct to plate imaging system which has been updated three times since, first to a Agfa Palladio then a Heidelberg Suprasetter and in June 2017 to a brand new Heidelberg Suprasetter A52/A75

HEIDELBERG SUPRASETTER A52/A75

A direct to plate process that requires NO developer - only a gum unit; uses chemical free plates and the new Heidelberg Pre-press Workflow system for optimum efficiency. This Suprasetter is the most space-saving and successful CTP platesetter of its class.
Low consumption for the benefit of the environment - the Suprasetter A52/A75 has the lowest energy usage in its class and it has the lowest heat output.

All proofs are supplied as either ripped PDF files, hi-res Epson proofs or digital Ricoh C901 proofs.

WHY PRINT DIGITALLY?

Digital printing allows us to print directly from a file, great for quick turnaround jobs. No plates, so it is more cost effective to print smaller quantities and much quicker, so for urgent jobs digital may be the  best solution. Digital has the capability for every sheet to be different so jobs can be printed in collated order.

Jobs can be linked to a database to bring in personalised information specific to the recipient, such as name, address, images and numbering, ideal for mail shots - we can even print the address, and mail the envelopes for you.

We have the facility with our digital presses to print spot gloss varnish and spot white onto coloured stock. Our maximum sheet size is 700mm long by 300mm tall to enable us to print A4 landscape, A4 6 pagers and small banner prints. We are also able to print on plastic stock for external and internal use for long lasting hard wearing signage.
