Commercial Stationery

Stationery is the mainstay of many high street print shops (and on-line suppliers too) so why would you come to a commercial printer like AB?

First and foremost, because of the guaranteed print quality we can deliver. Stationery is often the first printed item a potential customer will see so accuracy and quality are essential to creating that all important first impression. Plus, you have the reassurance of print to the most exacting standards, ensuring colour consistent printing across your entire brand or campaign.

We can walk from one machine to another and check / compare each job as it comes off the press. This – and our FOGRA calibrations – means we can ensure colour consistency across all production platforms. And by keeping it all in-house, we keep our costs down and ensure a speedy turnaround

As you’d expect, we print all the usual stationery items and can provide everything from start-up packages for sole traders and small businesses to the on-going print requirements of international groups with multiple sites and hundreds if not thousands of members of staff – and all at a competitive price:

  • Letterheads
  • Business cards
  • Continuation sheets
  • Compliment slips
  • Invoices
  • Statements
  • NCR sets

Special finishes for maximum impact

Our all-under-one-roof capability means we can also go beyond the standard stationery solutions to help you create memorable materials that really stand out from the crowd.

For a start, we use 400 gsm board as standard for our business cards, not the 350 gsm most printers use. And we can laminate, foil block or emboss them too. How about stationery with a unique die-cut shape? No problem. Maybe you’d like to look at the effects that can be delivered by textured inks or spot UV varnish? Or perhaps even go with plastic – or another substrate – instead of card?

We can handle all of this. And we do it all in house.

Do I need digital or litho printing?

As with everything we do, we’ll be happy to provide all the advice you need in terms of getting the getting possible job for your particular requirements but here are a few tips:

  • Short run business cards are often printed digitally
  • Longer run or (multiple names) business cards are often ganged up on to an A2 sheet and printed litho which significantly reduces the unit cost
  • Letterheads are nearly always printed litho due to the fact that digital ink reacts with the heat in many laser printers and is therefore unsuitable

Complementary materials

The fact that we can handle digital, litho and screen printing AND have a full suite of finishing facilities in-house means we can also provide all the other business materials you need, and ensure that your brand identity is maintained throughout. These could include:

  • Desk pads
  • Ring binders
  • A4+ folders
  • Bound presentations
  • Annual reports
  • Promotional items
