Lancashire Printing Company are a team of professional, driven people working together with our clients to produce inspired modern print solutions.
We are collaborators, united by a rigorous process, shared experience and a modern sensibility. Our strength is in working as a team. This allows us to produce integrated print solutions, which draw on a range of services that naturally work together.
We team together with our clients to address their unique needs. By paying close attention and interacting we are able to expand our processes seamlessly across each project, to deliver a first class printed product. Relationships are both functional and aesthetic; our broad range of services allows us to create tailored, cohesive print solutions to meet any quality challenge.
Print has to be sustainable. Our planning delivers efficiency, quality and value for money to clients who use print to communicate their brand. Responsibility is inherently about the future, and this is the only plan we work to for tackling issues relating to waste. Our clean manufacturing practices minimise impact by conserving natural resources and reducing waste. We help our clients to be sustainable, but our most essential environmentalism is simply to be more efficient in everything we do.
Print is ever changing and so is the demand for it. Our goal is to stay lean, show adaptability—invest in technology that endures, reject short-term fixes and anticipate the inevitability of change—as we continue to work with our clients to produce first class printed goods. This vision is carried forward by experience we have gained over the past 40 years. The quality of our work, the attention we afford each and every client, our plans for greater efficiency and adapting to change is what sets us aside from the rest. This is the way we work, and is the only way we know how to work.
Lithographic printing is constantly evolving. With our Heidelberg presses we achieve the best quality results on press, and have the experience to deliver high quality and a quick turnaround service for our clients across all sectors.
Foil blocking adds quality to print. It also allows for a greater scope to enhance designs by adding bright or subtle finishes using foil or foil and embossing. Foil is available in a huge range of colours and textures, including the more familiar golds and silvers. Foils come in various finishes including matt, pearlescent and gloss. Foiling provides a uniquely vibrant image with depth, and can be applied to a much larger range of materials in comparison to ink.
Embossing creates a raised image on paper or board and gives a stunning effect. With multilevel and sculptured dies the results are perceptible by touch and quite spectacular. De-bossing creates an indented look which can be used on thicker materials and book covers giving an appearance of a quality product.
Thermography or thermographic printing is a printing process that causes text or graphics to be slightly raised from the substrate. The resulting visual effect is interesting, making this a technique that is commonly used on wedding invitations, letterheads, business cards, greetings cards, gift wrap, diplomas and packaging. Since it is also a tactile effect thermography can be used to print braille text.
Digital printing has revolutionised the way in which physical material can be accessed and utilised to communicate. In its simplest form, digital printing is a low-cost, lower environmentally impacting alternative to lithographic printing when only small volumes are required.
We work with a wide range of paper materials to offer high quality duplex and triplex finishing. With duplexing we achieve different textures and colours on either side of your print. Triplexing is often used to achieve a contrast coloured seam running through the centre of a card, and can be combined with die-cutting to create a multi-layered effect.
We like to think of ourselves as the print solution provider to our clients. Our bespoke work delivers an added special touch to your printing. We are experts in this field and we can advise on special binding techniques, die-cutting, choice of materials and finishes to best enhance the look of your printed product.
