PrintWeek Awards 2017 Update
We were honoured to be shortlisted but sadly we didn’t win the coveted PrintWeek Award for Customer Service Team of the Year this time around. The team travelled to London to attend the event and had a wonderful evening at the prestigious awards ceremony, which was hosted by comedian and actor, Miles Jupp. This was our second time as a Finalist so fingers crossed it will be third time lucky next year!

Our entry for the Awards was largely based on the Book Production Training Days we deliver for our clients, and the hard work that our team put into building clients relationships and working with them to achieve their goals. Read our Case Study and find out how we could help develop the knowledge and skills of your publishing team.

The winners of all categories are to be announced at an awards ceremony which takes place on 16th October at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Can’t wait …..

Inkjet Investment Provides Outstanding Quality for Short Run Colour Books
We are delighted to be the first UK book printer to offer colour inkjet printing in High Definition! Thanks to the upgrade of one of our two HP T230 colour inkjet web presses with new High Definition Nozzle Architecture (HDNA) print heads, our clients can now enjoy superb quality short run colour print at affordable pricing. The new HDNA technology from HP takes colour inkjet quality up to an exceptional level and adds a further dimension for print buyers.

This investment is intended to offer more choice to those seeking to reduce costs and inventory in their colour books publishing programme using shorter print runs without jeopardising the quality of print. Other products ideally suited for printing on Ashford’s inkjet presses include journals, magazines, newsletters, reports, comics and newspapers. High speed variable data means that versioned magazines, personalised customer communications and tailored textbooks can be produced as part of a larger print run.

Sales Director, Mark Jones commented on the recent installation, “We’re really excited about the opportunities the addition of the HDNA print heads will bring. Our aim at Ashford is to always be innovative and offer the best solutions for our clients. Reaction to the results from the upgrade so far have been extremely positive.”
