High quality printing is still and probably always will be an essential part of any marketing agencies brief. The instant and lasting impact of great creative design, beautiful photography and engaging copy is often lost if the printing isn’t of the highest possible standard.
There’s a multitude of things that can (and do) influence the quality of a print, from the type, quality and thickness of the material used, the resolution of the artwork provided right through to the quality of the ink and printers used.
Our philosophy is simple – you should never have to reduce quality just because you want competitive prices.
At Northern Media, we’re lucky to have top-class in house designers and trained photographers on hand to ensure the quality of design that we can provide is of the best possible standard, as well as submitted in the correct way. We’re also lucky enough to be able to draw on the great printing heritage of Wakefield through our relationships with a multitude of printers, each specializing in a different area.
We can provide whatever printing your business might need, from magazines and brochures to signage, stickers and stationary. We also encourage existing clients to use our services for low volume printing. With the rising price of consumer ink cartridges, the cost of outsourcing print jobs is falling and the quality is far higher.
