In February 2015, Blackfriars invested in 3 state-of-the-art print production machines valued at £262,000 from Ricoh, world leaders in the digital production print market.

These three new machines will add to the already impressive services offered by Blackfriars Contract Ltd.

Using the ability to lay down white or clear toner opens up massive opportunities for designers in producing short run, high quality presentations – cost effectively. We can now print on coloured substrates The C7100 also prints onto textured stock up to 400gsm in weight and allows us to print on a large range of GF Smith stock – stocks only used by litho before and at much longer runs.

Artwork Set Up
Due to the special artwork set ups required, we are prepared to set up workshops to show designers the methods required to obtain the best results, or supply design set up sheets - please call in advance of setting up your artwork.

Trade Print Services
With these machines we are offering a Trade Print Service at a fantastic price – but printers do the finishing. They send us an SRA3 PDF of the required artwork and state how many sheets, single or double sided and weight of stock.

We print and send back for them to finish – simple.

General customers
