Suffolk-based commercial printing company Greenshoots has installed the latest Heidelberg Linoprint CP digital print technology at its Ipswich headquarters.

The £140,000 technological tour de force delivers an industry-leading resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi for exceptional clarity on a large range of coated, uncoated and textured stocks.

And an all–new image control system, which constantly monitors and adjusts gamma correction, grading uniformity and CMYK (colour separation) registration, the new unit offers a finished product that is almost impossible to differentiate from top quality lithographic print.

The arrival of the Linoprint CP completes a 12-month, £1million-plus investment programme at Greenshoots which has also seen the addition of a brand new Heidelberg XL75 five colour B2 litho press and a Heidelberg ST350 6 station stitcher-trimmer to the company’s extensive plant list at its site in Raeburn Road South.

Greenshoots’ sales account manager, Mike Noye, believes that with customers demanding ever higher quality and faster production, this latest investment will play a key part in keeping Greenshoots ahead of the competition for both digital and lithographic print in East Anglia.

Greenshoots was established in 2010 as an amalgamation of several well-known Ipswich printing brands.

Its team of more than 30 print professionals, combined witn its investment in technology, means that Greenshoots is able to offer a comprehensive high quality lithographic and digital printing service to clients nationwide, meeting print needs ranging from business cards and flyers to brochures and books, and to tight deadlines.
