Printer Wanted for UK Letterpress Job
« on: June 17, 2013, 11:37:55 AM »
I am looking for a printer to produce some letterpress work for me.

They are a set of 6 half-tone images that I require printing with black ink on white paper.

The images measure 550 X 380mm and I am able to supply the plates.

I require 48 prints off each plate plus proofs.

I am based in Catterick, North Yorkshire, UK, and have a November deadline.

Please contact me by email if you have the facilities to produce this work.

grev-AT-saintpaulinus.co.uk (replace -AT- with @)

Thanks
Greville Worthington

You will need a printer who has either a large cylinder press (Heidleberg or similar) or a large proofing press, maybe a Western, as the half tones are quite large a platen type machine wil not be powerful enough to either ink sufficiently or produce a good print quality.

I have met  but not visited  Glasgow Press www.glasgowpress.co.uk and they are letterpress, with, I think, a large enough machine. You could enquire with them, as they do work on the 'commercial' end of the scale, so might have experience with halftones.
