Digital tritones

We are now producing digital duotone and tritone projects off our HP Indigo 12000. If you have an art project but do not need a lot of books, this beautiful alternative might well be less expensive.

New press online

We are excited to have completed installation of our new HP Indigo 12000. This press will replace our 7900 and has more colors (seven), high definition print heads for stochastic printing, and a 20″ x 29″ sheet size. We will stock Accent, Endurance, and Monadnock Astrolite for the new press.

The 12000 will allow us to print mid-sized jobs more economically than either a smaller Indigo or our large offset presses; and with absolutely top notch quality.

This 400-page book, just delivered to Harvard Law School, was formatted by our in-house designer Christyann. Footnotes and Arabic make it a highly complex project.
