New Kit at Kingfisher Press – Jetpress High Definition Digital Print

We are really excited to announce that in March 2017 we will have a new printing press at Kingfisher Press!! The Jet Press 720S, Fujifilm’s high-quality B2 format inkjet digital press will be ready to rock at Kingfisher from mid March.

In simple terms the Jetpress means we can provide fast and efficient high quality personalised digital print. It’s has the latest in Ultra High Definition print processes and is a sound investment for Kingfisher Press going forward.

“We’ve been looking closely at the advances in digital printing technology for some time,” says one of the company’s co-directors Jon Doidge. “But until now we hadn’t seen a platform that we felt offered quality at a level that justified the cost of investment. That’s all changed with the Jet Press 720S, which we think is about to blow away its closest competitors.”

Following a visit to drupa 2016 and then to Belgium to see the machine in action we were very impressed with its capabilities. It can do big print or small print – and when we say small we mean really small – like 1.5pt text for security only readable with a magnifying glass and it can personalise whatever you want to personalise and as many times as you want on your document. Its also B2 – many digital presses are smaller – giving us the advantage on fast colour personalised print!

If you want to see the machine in action check out this video – we just know that you will have work which is suitable for this beautiful piece of engineering.

“Until now we just haven’t had the capability to compete for short run, high quality work – and given current trends this sort of work is going to become an increasingly large part of the overall marketplace. Run lengths will keep coming down as people don’t want their money tied up in stock and they like the flexibility of being able to make modifications and amends between runs. Then there’s the benefit of personalisation – another major string to our bow that the Jet Press will provide.

Because the Jetpress is a precious piece of kit we’ve let it have our offices and we will move into a new purposely built office which is currently being completed. It gives us the opportunity to redecorate our offices with some wonderful wide-format print and get air conditioning – at last !!!!!

Suffolk Printer Kingfisher Press achieves ISO14001:2015 accreditation.

Kingfisher Press Ltd are delighted to announce they have achieved ISO14001 accreditation!

The ISO14001 accreditation provides a framework for organisation policy, planning and actions to meet internal and external environmental management objectives. It addresses the management of environmental aspects and results in continual improvement of environmental performance. ISO14001 focuses on helping organisations grow while reducing their environmental impact and helping to achieve sustainable success.

What does Kingfisher Press’s ISO14001 accreditation mean for you as a client?

The UK is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050, relative to 1990 levels. There is plenty of opportunity for businesses to reduce their own carbon emissions (cycle to work schemes, electric cars, low energy equipment, the list goes on) but your clients will still want print and their clients will still want print – so how does Kingfisher being ISO14001 have any impact on you as a business?

If you are pitching to a local council, major supermarket or environmentally conscious company, the chances are the fact that your printer is ISO14001 accredited will impress them.

Many large companies have a carbon reduction policy. General consensus amongst business heads is that in order to reach their 2050 target the government will impose an environmental tax of some kind and also encourage businesses to use accredited companies who are already part of the ‘green’ initiative.

It doesn’t cost anything for you to let your clients know your printer is ISO14001 accredited or to use a carbon balanced stock and we feel that not only does it show we are environmentally aware but that we are not just concerned about our business, but of the issue of sustainability overall.

What does this mean for Kingfisher Press as a business?

As part of the manufacturing sector, and using a living growing product as part of our resources, print can be viewed as a non-environmentally friendly business. But there aren’t many businesses who don’t use wood or paper in some way. So the ideal answer is to have an environmentally conscious business and do what we can to create sustainable and green policies and procedures to limit any impact on the environment that we may have.

We are already FSC accredited which gives a chain of custody for paper providing an audit trail right back to the tree and papermill. All FSC stocks are supplied by ethical and sustainable farming methods and forests.

We are also a Carbon Balanced Publication Printer, which means our business, not just our paper, has been assessed and the carbon offset with the World Land Trust.

So the ISO14001 accreditation, for Kingfisher Press as a business, means we are recognised as having procedures in place that will reduce our environmental impact and will continue to evolve and develop to remain as environmentally friendly as possible.
