A World Class Digital Print Solution for a World Class Conference Centre

There’s only one place to go when looking for a printer which is able to print a digital print job of this length in one continuous piece, and that’s Wood Richardson. The in-house Xeikon digital press gives this York based family business the flexibility needed to provide unique and quirky solutions for any brief. And the latest was no exception.

The Harrogate International Centre, a renowned world class conference centre, was looking for a new sales brochure, something which could include lots of information about all the different spaces for hire but which was still handy enough for people to pop into their handbags or pocket to keep for future reference. Working with designer Lisa Guest of Cookie Graphic Design, Wood Richardson proved the perfect print partner.

Lynne Hudson, Customer Relations Manager, Harrogate International Centre said: “With a 2,000 seat auditorium, 10 event halls and meeting spaces available to hire, we have a lot to sell and much information to get across to potential venue hirers and event organisers. Cookie Design came up with a winning design which created an impactful pocket sized sales brochure. The job was given to Wood Richardson because of their reputation for being able to digitally print in one continuous piece. I am delighted with the job which has proved popular with our target audience and I wouldn’t hesitate to consider using Wood Richardson again in the future”

As print partner, Wood Richardson pride themselves on attention to detail, working with the client throughout the process to ensure that the end result exceeds expectation. Andrew Ingram, Sales Manager said: “We worked with the client and designer every step of the way, advising them on how best to supply the artwork, ensuring nothing was lost in any of the folds and also sourcing and recommending an alternative velcro fastener rather than the clear sticker which is typically used, which tends to rip the paper once opened.

The 30-page job was printed in one continuous piece, using Wood Richardson’s reel fed Xeikon 500D digital press on 160gsm FSC Colour Copy Offset and finished with 5 parallel creases performed on a modified Morgana AutoCreaser Pro 50. The cover was litho printed using 350gsm FSC Infoset Plus Offset and the job completed with a Velcro style hook and loop fastener.

Based in purpose built facilities in York, Wood Richardson was established in 1905 and has been run by the Richardson family since the 1920s.  Its ongoing investment in the latest technology and innovations in print and production machinery combines with the skills and experience of a century of craftsmanship to provide a team of print experts.  Dynamic and responsive, the company works closely with a wide range of customers throughout Yorkshire, delivering high quality print and customer service.
