HAMMONDS Trade Printing
Although trade printing is a newly publicised offering from HAMMONDS, we are no stranger to printing! Through our sister company Charlesworth Press, we provide a confidential, ISO and FSC accredited service to trade printers.
Established for almost 100 years, Charlesworth Press has all the experience in litho and digital printing you could need. As specialists in magazines, books, brochures, catalogues, directories, manuals, booklets, newsletters, reports, loose-leaf work, diaries and much more – we produce excellent quality short, medium and long run work for printers like you!
Operating 24/7, our fast turnaround trade printing services are accredited to the ISO 9001 Quality and ISO 14001 environmental standard, and hold FSC Chain of Custody certification. We also work to ISO 12647 colour standard and proof to FOGRA 39 and FOGRA 27.
PrepressOur Prepress department uses all the latest technology. Files can be uploaded via our secure online portal, which automatically pre-flight checks files upon receipt in to our PDF workflow. Our experienced team are always more than happy to assist with enquiries on supplying files, proofing, and any other issues relating to prepress.
Litho PrintingOur press room is equipped with two B1 litho colour presses, a KBA Rapida 105 8-colour perfector with offline colour control, plus a Heidelberg Speedmaster 105 5-colour perfector. Plates are made using chemical free processing, and all litho printing is done with vegetable-based inks.
Digital PrintingFor shorter run work, we operate three HP Indigo presses (SRA3) with full personalisation capabilities, plus a further colour Xerox press. In addition, we have two mono sheet-fed digital presses and a further mono web-fed press.
Account ManagementAs always, our friendly customer service team is always on hand to help and advise throughout, from receipt of files to delivery of the final job. Every client is allocated their own dedicated Account Manager as their single point of contact for the work.
DeliveryWe can deliver your work in plain or your own-branded packaging. Alternatively through our extensive mailing and fulfilment services, we can mail out individual copies if required.
