Wellington Press has been a Letterpress, Litho and Digital printers for over 85 years. We have been at our current location, just a stones throw from the Olympic Village in East London, for over 25 years. We offer a range of services from business cards, stationery, corporate brochures, to bespoke boxes, binders and crossmedia campaigns and many other services.
With the latest Ricoh Digital Presses we can produce high quality digital projects in the best time and most cost effective way.
Both of our digital machines complement our Heidelberg Litho presses, with the print quality of the Ricoh 9100 being of the highest commercial standard. With the digital presses producing shorter run projects, this leaves the Heidelberg Litho machines for the longer runs, and the more traditional side of the business including thermography.
We also have an extensive finishing department, which enables us to complete projects on budget and on time. We have Perfect and Wiro Binding, Saddle Stitching, Die Cutting, Folding, Creasing and Perforating along with other specialist finishes such as Laminating, Spot UV Varnishing, Foiling and Embossing. We also produce bespoke projects for our clients, these can be one off presentation boxes for corporate pitch presentation or Binders and USB presentation packs.
At Wellington Press we recognise that in pursuing our operational services we have a responsibility to protect and nurture the environment. By exercising proper control over our activities, we will promote the use of sustainable resources and discourage wasteful or damaging practices.
Our recycling is of an exceptionally high order and everything that we are unable to re-use is graded into a range of different categories and recycled or disposed of responsibly. We are accredited in compliance with the J&G Environmental Certification, the Industry standard for responsible environmental procedures. We take pride in looking at everything we do to make sure it is truly ‘green’ rather than simply using slick marketing spin.
We have our ISO14001 Environmental Certification, which we have held for over 10 years. We find the quarterly management meetings and yearly audits a great way to keep on top of our Environmental commitment.
AWARD WINNERS 2014
We have won The Print, Design & Marketing Awards for 'Best Cross Media Campaign' for Vodafone Video Book.
With over 85 year’s experience in the print industry, Wellington Press has moved with the times and technology to compete and stay on top within the print industry. From running hand fed machines in the 1930’s, Thompson and Heidelberg Platens in the 1950’s we now offer full colour lithographic printing on Heidelberg 1 and 2 colour machines, and the latest Heidelberg Speedmaster multicolour presses.
We also have a thermographic department to supply stationery and cards with a raised image in single or multicolour. Pre-press work is handled on site in our studio where we have the latest software and hardware.
Our machines gives you the opportunity to produce instant high quality printed media, from packaging and promotional material to mailers and point of sale marketing literature with costs, quantities and turnarounds to suit you. Our in house finishing department ensures that as well as being produced quickly, your digitally printed urgent work can be laminated, creased, folded, die cut and made up without compromising quality and delivery times.
For those who have not used digital printing before, the process removes the need for film, plates and make ready times. Allowing for greater flexibility, and turnaround times are increased. Our digital presses incorporate multiple paper feeds thus eliminating the need to stop the press mid-run and reload a different stock. Print runs can be finished in hours not days.
We have recently installed a Valiani flatbed cad cutter, this means we can now produce may different large format projects incorporating different cad cut shapes. These can be one off mock-ups or point of sale work. It can also be used for full produced work where it is more cost-effective then making traditional dies and the cost of make readies on cylinder machines.
Our Mutoh Large Format printers use Eco Solvent Inks, these increase the durability of the print and the intensity of the colours. We can produce many different types of display solutions, from Pull-up Banner stands to complete Pop-up Display Systems. We can produce display boards on foam or PVC and Banners for indoor or outdoor use, which can be finished with Hems and Eyelets.
All of these items are now finished on the Valiani Cad Cutter which has increased productivity and the overall standard of the finished product.
Large Format Printing
Web 2 Print
We have a comprehensive Web 2 Print solution available to all our clients combining the printed and e-marketing options. Each customer can have its own login to a web page that is branded with their own corporate style.
The W2P can be set up to match each customer’s individual requirements. From the basic creation of a business card, to a complete site with a full suite of marketing items from postcards to newsletters that can be fully editable.
Customers can keep control of their brand guide lines making sure collateral has the right corporate look and feel across printed and e-marketing campaigns.
The solution can also be used for stock management. Items that have been printed can be put on the system and clients can call off the stock when required. This can be a very cost-effective way of managing your print as items can be run in higher volumes to save money.
We can run monthly reports so that you can have a complete audit trail of all your products.
Bespoke Boxes, Binders & Casebound Books
We have had a tradition of suppling paper overboard binders and boxes for many years. With the investment in our Valiani Cad Cutting Table in the summer of last year we decide to bring our box & binder manufacturing in house.
We were able to recruit one of London’s most experienced cardboard engineers, with some re-arranging of factory we have setup a standalone department for the manufacture of Boxes & Binders.
We have also been able to introduce casebound books these can be printed, foiled bound in-house.
We are able to make one off prototypes to full production runs. We work with some of Londons top Media & Design Agencies suppling short run pitch collateral and also full production runs of luxury presentation boxes some of which can be seen on our website.
For many years the media have said that the ‘printed sheet’ is a dying format, we now have ‘Crossmedia’ the combination of several different media.
This may not be a printed project, but it is a combination of different mass media such as e-mail, conventional letter and web pages. This method can be an extremely effective way to connect to the end user.
Our Award Winning Carlsberg Video folder and Vodafone Videobook is a great example of how you can combine the latest video screen technology with a printed book and a USB credit card in the Vodaphone book. We produced a project for Saxo Bank. Which made great use of ‘Crossmedia’. We combined a popup box and Zipalope that was personalised with the client’s name and a unique ID code. This was mailed to the customer and they were then able to go to a landing web page and put in the unique code to see if they had won an iPad.
These projects show how ‘Crossmedia’ can work as a great marketing option. It does not have to be so complex. It could be as simple as a letter being e-mailed to a 2000 name database. This database may have people who don’t have an e-mail address or don’t want to be contacted by e-mail, the software can then print a letter and this can be mailed in the convential way.
Environmental Policy – ISO 14001
ISO 14001 allows us to achieve an internationally accepted standard for legal and regulatory compliance to various regulators and the government.
ISO 14001 sets out how companies implement an effective environmental management system that allows them to identify aspects of their business which could impact on the environment. Certification ensures that companies understand all the environmental laws that are relevant to their situation, and provides documented objectives for improvement, compliance and monitoring.
Certifying us allows a third party, such as BSI, to assess our company and approve our environmental management system ensuring that we meet the requirements set out in the standard.
Quality Assurance – ISO 9001
The assessment and certification process of ISO 9001 allows us to achieve an internationally accepted standard with legal and regulatory compliance for our quality and management systems to various regulators and the government. ISO 9001 ensures that we take a strategic approach, and that our business objectives constantly feed into our working practices to ensure we maximise our assets and operational efficiency.
The assessment of our quality management system focuses on operating process and ensures that our employees feel more involved through improved communication. Continued Assessment visits can highlight any skills shortages sooner and uncover any teamwork issues.
