Are You Ready To Make The Switch?

There has never been a better time to make the switch from sheetfed to web printing!


Both web and sheetfed are excellent ways to produce print and each is suited to different requirements. We produce both web and sheetfed work in house too and use the best method for each job. However, we have noticed that there is a massive increase in interest from customers switching to web when they can do so. 

Web printing has such an attractive appeal due to its ability to produce fantastic quality print on lighter papers which reduces customer print costs massively! The print efficiencies and the colour quality that are achievable on even lighter weight papers are brilliant.

With the increases in raw materials on the horizon, the switch to web printing could significantly save publishers and marketers money.

Does it make a difference?

How can making the switch to lighter papers and web printing save you money?

  1. Reduce your product weight and save on postage
  2. Save on paper costs because of a reduced tonnage ordered
  3. Produce print runs of over 5000 copies more efficiently
  4. Remove the costs of extra requirements such as cutting and folding sections before binding (This also greatly reduces the turnaround time of the job too!) 
  5. Printing web lets you produce A4 as 32pp sections instead of 16pp sections, cutting out half of your make-ready costs!

What to do?

We find the best results are when you combine the two methods of printing. A sheetfed cover on heavier paper with web printed text is a favourite in the industry for a reason!


Some other helpful tips for easy print savings are:










  • Avoid 8's and 4's 
  • Stick to A4 or A5
  • Try using Mailmark to reduce your postage further
