£5m+ investment in new book binding division at instantprint

The UK’s largest online printer, Yorkshire-based instantprint, has invested over £5m in its latest factory upgrade to accommodate a new book binding division.

The launch and investment in the new book division comes directly from customer feedback with the aim of making the print-buying journey easier and ensuring their books make customers look exceptional.

The printer is focusing on guaranteed quality from its team of expert book makers with almost six decades of book printing experience and some of the worlds most advanced printing presses on site.

instantprint were the proud owners of the UK’s first nanographic press, now a second Landa S10P Nanographic Printing press has been ordered to bolster instantprint’s operations in luxury and lay flat book printing, as well as stitched and perfect bound booklet products – some of the fastest growing segments of the business. The investment will allow instantprint to improve their ever-growing booklet range by ensuring world class print quality.

As part of a broader £5m+ investment in its book printing division, the new seven-colour Landa S10P will significantly enhance instantprint’s production capacity. The press will be integrated alongside the existing S10P in the instantprint workflow allowing a seamless flow from customer upload and approval through to printed sheets on the floor.

instantprint said it chose a second Landa S10P based on its predecessor’s exceptional print quality and economic advantages, which positions it well ahead of the competition.

James Kinsella, Co-Founder of instantprint, added: “The print market is highly competitive and to support our customers with high-quality books that make them look exceptional, we knew we need to invest in our factory to ensure that we can produce books at the highest quality and lowest unit cost. The first Landa press has fitted seamlessly into our workflow and has given us a lot more flexibility around what we can offer to our customers.”

“The area that the Landa is making the biggest impact is in booklet work, perfect bound books for example are printed as blocks and then run through our Kolbus KM600. The Landa has enabled much faster turnarounds as well as opening a wider range of materials that traditionally were only available on litho quantities.”
