Technology has evolved the printing industry incredibly over the past few years. The introduction of faster, smarter, better machines and equipment has meant that keeping up with these changes has been crucial to be able to continue to provide superior service to our clients.
Since 2016 Nova Press has been on an equipment upgrade strategy, which has been the largest investment by any print company on the Gold Coast for over 20 years at a cost of $3.2m.
All offset, digital and finishing equipment has been replaced with brand new equipment and upgraded technology.
Investing in our company, for the benefit of our clients.
Slide to see Heidelberg's evolution from 1959 to now
The printing industry has undergone some massive changes in the last 10 - 15 years due to the evolution of technology and how integrated it has become in our industry.
Long gone of the days of manual or photo typesetting, shooting film and exposing and developing printing plates. A lot of time was required for these extremely manual and sometimes unpleasant tasks which had to happen even before the print job reached the press.
There are generally 3 main attributes of any print job. Quality, Turnaround Time and Cost. The equipment available to the printing industry today is specifically designed to Increase the quality of the final product, reduce the time in which a job takes to produce, and ultimately reduce the cost of print production.
It wasn’t all that long ago that the financial status of your business was based on how many colours were printed on your stationery, and if you had a Business Card on a Linen stock, well, you must have been very important!
The thing about all this wonderful technology is that it comes at quite a high cost, financially that is. Most quotes for new equipment contain at least 4 zero’s and when it comes to larger machinery such as a printing press, well, you’re talking in the millions of dollars.
Our machinery also gets a lot of use, in some cases operating for 24 hours per day, 5 days per week, so ensuring that you are investing in quality equipment and have the ability to service and maintain that equipment is a must.
