Xeikon 5000

With two of the very latest five colour Xeikons, Face can now boast the most comprehensive digital printing service in London. These machines are web fed and offer a maximum print image area of 480mm (maximum job size 460mm) by virtually any length (11 metres to be exact).

The Xeikon engine fuses four colour dry toner (with a fifth colour option) onto both sides of the paper simultaneously and can print over 3,500 A4 duplex sheets an hour. Although using toner the new machines produce strong flat colours as well as tints and pastels. And with enhanced registration software, fine detail and reversed out type is produced perfectly.

Types of stock

A wide range of papers including matt, gloss and numerous other substrates are held in stock including self-adhesive crack-back, acetate, polyester, simulator (tracing paper) and transfer material. Weights range from 80gsm up to an impressive 350gsm, (perfect for folders and document covers). Textured stocks are also available in an ever-increasing range but these are only supplied to special order.

Just right for your job!

Cost viability of full colour digital print as opposed to litho is around a 1,000 copies, depending on the project but when turn around time or personalisation are the criteria, Xeikon can become the perfect solution.

Finishing

All finishing is completed in-house in our own finishing department which can handle trimming, drilling, stitching, wiro binding, perfect binding, kiss-cutting, die-cutting square backs, in fact practically the whole gamut of finishing requirements.

 

And like all services at Face Creative Services we operate 24 hours a day, five days a week.

Welcome to Face Creative's new website

Welcome to Face Creative Services, London’s most comprehensive digital print facility. Based in Baron Street at the Angel, Islington in central London, Face Creative offers a digital printing service unparalleled in the South East, probably the country!

Full colour digital printing

With our two HP Indigo presses and two of the incredible Xeikon 5000 presses we can produce virtually any printed item. These two digital print systems, which are considered to be at the highest end of digital presses, allow us to print anything from business cards to folders, leaflets to case bound books and mailers to presentation portfolios.

Our in-house finishing department can handle anything from trimming and folding to die cutting and wiro to case binding.

On this website you will find everything you need to produce the perfect job, cutter guides, templates, paper sizes, binding guides and artwork tips. You will also find pages on our large format and modular display services, ideal for any event or presentation. Or you can just give us a call.

HP Indigo

Hp Indigi 3050 - sheet feed digital printerThis system is considered by many to be the ultimate the Rolls Royce of digital printing. It is a sheet fed press, using SRA3 stock and prints four colour process onto a huge range of materials. This machine is great for bound documents of up to A3 page size and can use paper up to 400gsm. We can also use special colours, and the variable data or personalisation facility is boundless. 

Xeikon

Xeikon 5000 - web feed digital printerWe operate two of these magnificent presses, the only company in the south of the country to do so, and if the Indigo is the Rolls Royce, this has got to be the Aston Martin. It’s web fed and prints four colour process, both side simultaneously onto a 500mm reel. Stock ranges from 90gsm up to 350gsm with a varied range of substrates. The actual print area is 470mm by 11metres, so the Xeikon is perfect for concertina or roll fold leaflets, (we’ve actually produced a 32pp A3 concertina folded document for American Express) and die cut folders.

Like the Indigo, the variable data facility is virtually limitless.

Let’s make this personal!

So now let’s get close up and personal. Personalised targeted mailers are proven to increase response rates by up to a massive 35% on conventional mailers. At Face Creative we can produce highly tailored mailings on our high end HP Indigo and Xeikon presses.

So, personalisation. We all know it works and it has been standard practice to ‘personalise’ by laser overprinting customer details. But this just doesn’t do it for approximately 98% of all direct mail recipients. True personalisation means using all the information about a customer, their stated preferences or purchase history, to ensure the sales message is entirely relevant.

Most organisations hold, or can acquire, this information, but rarely exploit it to the full. In part, due to the limitations of traditional printing, where single colour overprinting is the only cost effective option. But any colour image changes require new artwork and plates for each mailer. Multiply these costs for hundreds, let alone thousands…well the rest is obvious; as is your clients reaction!

The variable data options with digital printing are virtually unlimited. In a single print run each document can be completely different. There are almost no restrictions. Text, photographs, maps, logos, graphs…anything can be changed, anywhere on the page. Even the image on the front cover can be different to every recipient.

And the cost? Yes, a personalised run is more expensive than a generic digital print mailer, but most of the extra cost is in the data management initially, and if you’re looking at an increased response rate of in excess of 35%, your client will consider it money well spent.

So, if you want to make your target market anaudience of onecontact us now.
