At Design Office we love to print!

Full Colour Printing, Digital Printing and Large Format Printing, all produced in house to ISO 9001 Manufacturing Standards and ISO 14001 Environmental Standards. From Short Run Digital Printing (on demand) to larger print quantities our experienced print production team will help deliver your products on time every time.

In house we print a broad range of products from Business Stationery, Letterheads, Compliment Slips, Business Cards, Invoice Pads, Purchase Order Pads, Delivery Notes, Corporate Folders and Wallets. Most of these can be printed either Short Run Digital or Full Colour Litho. We also print Large Posters, Wall Graphics, Signs, Vehicle Graphics, Exhibition Stands which are all printed on our Seiko Large Format Press.

On Demand urgent print jobs are generally done upon request, so please feel free to bring your own file and ask one of our team to print while you wait! From simple Colour Copying to Posters and Booklets, we are always happy to help no matter how small or large your print requirement is.

If it’s creative marketing you require how about booking a free design consultation where we will discuss your projects and ultimately turn these into stylish full colour Company Brochures, Direct Mailers, Catalogues, Leaflets and Posters. If you want to create that extra lasting impression why not add a special Die-Cut shape or Spot U.V. Varnish to finish off that special job.

For larger print projects why not let us create you an eye catching Exhibition Stand, Roller Banner, Poster or PVC Outdoor Banner. From bespoke Exhibition Stands to one off displays if it’s printed we have the machinery and the know how to print it.

Design Office use a broad range of paper and board materials from FSC accredited papers and boards to recycled materials. Gloss, Silk and Satin stocks are the most commonly used materials especially for Leaflets, Flyers, Brochures and Direct Mailers. If it’s something special why not try Conqueror or Zeta papers and boards? Please contact us to request paper and board samples.

At Design Office we use state of the art production techniques; files are taken directly from the studio’s Apple Macs and PCs to both the Platemaker and Printing devices. The printed jobs are colour scanned using our “Easy Trax” colour mananegment system. Our 10,000 square foot production facility in Crewe includes the following machinery; the printing department uses Heidelbergs, Hans Gronhi, Xerox Epsom and Roland Printing Pressses, while the finishing department uses Duplo Booklet Makers, Morgana Programatic Guillotines, Folders & Numbering Machines, Wire Binding, Laminators and Heidelberg Cut and Crease Machines.

Why not take a look at the Design Office Blog and Facebook page to see what our customers are saying today! You will also see our latest work from Printed Brochures, iPhone Apps, Websites, Photography and even Vehicle Graphics.

We like to think that we can fit your print job to your budget no matter how small. At Design Office we are knowledgable, flexible and creative so why not book to have a tour of our facilities and discuss your project in person with one of our team.
