£500K New Equipment Investment for Trade Print Solutions

Since we launched TPS at the beginning of 2015, we have been passionate about ensuring that we stay ahead of the curve, so we want to show off just how you can benefit from our printing services. 

At our Northern headquarters, our Gateshead-based agency, Northern Print Solutions, we have put a cool £500k of recent investment into our equipment to ensure that you’re getting the best with both Northern Print Solutions and Trade Print Solutions. 

There’s no need to say thank you! 

It’s not that our printers or specialist equipment were out-of-date, it’s more that we just want to be at the forefront of printing, so that we look good and your products look amazing – simple, really!

With this latest investment it also ensures that we remain more than capable to produce all of your materials in house, like we have always done.

What’s not to love?

If you don’t quite understand the gibberish of technical specifications and equipment names that’s fine too, we’re happy to chat about it – tweet us at @TradePrintUK! 

In terms of digital production, we have a brand new Xerox Versant 2100 Press and two Xerox J75 Presses (both less than a year old). Our finishing capabilities have been hugely invested in, with a new Duplo DC 645, AP 2 Ultra Auto Puncher and a Duplo System 5000 Pro Dynamic Booklet Maker.
