As the print market continues its steady trend towards digital, the need to be able to accurately print spot and brand colours on digital presses is becoming ever-more important.

Offering an end-to-end service, the company’s capabilities include sheet-fed offset, digital print technologies and web-2-print as well as various finishing systems, graphic design and logistics. Operating out of a 3,500 square metre facility, the company is currently making a major investment in its future, building an additional new 2,000 square metre hall, which will house all of its existing digital print equipment as well as a brand new Fujifilm Jet Press 750S, which will be installed in early 2019.

Fujifilm today announces its third generation B2 inkjet press, the Jet Press 750S. With higher productivity of 3,600 B2 sheets per hour, and a range of other changes which further improve the already impressive up-time, versatility, colour capability and quality, the Jet Press 750S is now the fastest, full colour, B2 sheet-fed digital press on the market.
