PageMaster offers a wide range of production services, bringing your work to life to be shared with your world.
Our small batch model reduces your risk, storage requirements and cash outlay with better quality, costs and control than one-off processes. Our promise is to produce an additional 100 books in six business days after your first run.
As well as books, PageMaster produces cards, newsletters, reports, booklets and art prints.
Two production level digital colour printers handle up to 13”x19.2” (Ricoh CP720, Konica/Minolta CPP500). They produce excellent color and efficient black for mixed books. The Ricoh had excellent registration and lower temperatures result in less curl. The bottom line is great product.
In May 2012 PageMaster installed a new Ricoh 900 black printer with 13″x19″ capacity meeting the increasing need for efficient 6×9 books. Printing quality, registration, speed and paper handling have increased resulting in even better books, in other sizes too.
Better, faster, cheaper is good.
