Coldset

About Coldset.

FAST AND ECONOMICAL

Coldset printing offers fast, economical printing on uncoated paper. Our network of plants is equipped with coldset printing towers and caters for large and smaller print runs in broadsheet, tabloid and quarter fold formats for both high pagination and thinner products.

We have capacity to print one million copies per hour with 800 tabloid pages printed simultaneously. Inline stitching, gluing and trimming delivers finished product off the press. The process is best suited to absorbent papers, such as uncoated newsprint, bond and book paper, and can accommodate high quality, heavier grammage.

Capabilities and Equipment.

Applications include newspapers, educational material, ballots and commercial publications while the process incorporates inline finishing as well as folding, collating and inserting capabilities.

Coldset is a repeat winner of local and international newspaper quality awards and member of the exclusive International Newspaper Color Quality Club.
