Technology in the print world is always advancing and keeping up with the current trends is a never-ending process. At Minuteman Press we use the latest digital presses in addition to some of the tried and true technology that has been around for decades. A brief overview of what we use every day can be seen below.
The Xerox Versant 80 digital press is the day-to-day workhorse at the St. Peters Minuteman Press. We are the first commercial printer in the St. Peters area to have this state of the art digital press. It allows us to print on thicker stock, hold better registration, more accurately match exact colors, and get the job finished faster than our competition. It also allows us the capability to saddle stitch and fold thicker booklets in-line with no extra finishing process than ever before.
Our Heidelberg QM-46 is a 2-color offset printing press that we use for long runs of 1 or 2 colors. It is a very cost effective option for jobs that require a 5,000+ sheet run of 1 or 2 colors. It also allows us the capability of matching exact Pantone colors. If your company has a specific color that has to be matched precisely, this is the option for you.
Our Xante digital envelope press allows us the capability of printing full color envelopes of almost any size. From a standard #10, to a 10×13 catalog we can do it all. Whether you are looking for a simple return address and logo, or a full picture we can do it all. It also allows us the capability to print your mailing list directly onto the envelope at the same time when you supply us with an Excel list for your mailing.
Our Epson wide format printer is great for jobs that need to be large. It can print a full color photograph up to 42” wide. Our in-stock premium glossy poster paper is a great option for posters and photographs that you need blown up in size. It also does great with blueprints, whether they are black and white or full color. The quality off this machine is second to none.
For graphic design we use the latest Adobe Creative Cloud to get your project from concept to print ready in the fastest means possible. Our skilled design crew has many years of experience not only in graphic design but also in the print industry. They understand exactly what it takes to get your project from an idea all the way to a completed project in the most efficient way possible.
At Minuteman Press in St. Peters we feature a full line of finishing equipment. Everything from our large 26” cutter to booklet makers, folders, scoring machines, perfing machines, coil binders, and everything in between we have the equipment in house to take your job off the press and get it finished in the most efficient manner possible.
