understand that our business depends solely on one thing, and that is satisfying
the needs and wants of each and every customer with the highest quality work
possible. That is our mission and that is our goal.
To simply state
our mission and goal however is not enough. In the printing industry,
state of the art equipment is a must, and we recognize the importance of keeping
up with technological advances. As a result of this we have invested in a
five color sheet fed Heidelberg press, and have the capability of printing a 23”
x 29” sheet of paper, one of only a few companies in the area that can do
this. We are also the only printing company in Naples Florida that has
equipment to produce the finest themographed business cards, stationery,
announcements, and other business products for the printing trade.
Thermography is a finishing process that has a similar result as
steel-die engraving without the impression on the back. After offset printing,
while the ink is still wet, a fine resinous powder is applied to the ink.
Glossy or dull finishing powder may be used. The sheet is then passed
through a heat chamber that fuses the resin into a raised image. This
finish resembles engraving but is significantly less expensive.
New to Gulf
Printing is the Mako CTP system which delivers high quality,
platesetting. The heart of the Mako CTP system
is a totally new platesetter family using state-of-the-art violet imaging
technology to provide high quality production and versatile plate handling. The
imaging technology is the same proven technology used in the Mako imagesetter.
Renowned for its quality, reliability, ease-of-use, and low maintenance, Mako
imaging devices have been installed at over 10,000 commercial printers, trade
shops and service bureaus around the world.
Direct imaging provides first generation dots
with enhanced definition at all resolutions and finer control over highlights
and shadows. The advanced violet imaging technology delivers fast imaging
speeds, razor-sharp dots and a choice of resolutions for job output up to 200
line screen with total confidence.
Mako CTP platesetters are built to be
flexible, delivering precise imaging on violet-sensitive metal plates for B3+
& A2/B2 page presses. Mako CTP systems can operate in manual mode or with an
automated plate output transport to enable direct connection to an online
processor. With a selection of resolutions, a choice of manual or semi-automatic
operation and an array of flexible workflow integration options, the Mako CTP
system can be configured for many different commercial applications.
When a plate is to be
imaged, it is loaded into the Mako CTP in yellow safelight conditions and
registered to the pin-bar system. The pin bar is configured with the same notch
positions as the press that will run the plate, ensuring fast in-register press
mounting. This pin-bar system is interchangeable, allowing the same platesetter
to be used for a wide variety of presses.
