At Peppermint we take every care to ensure that we provide the highest and most consistent quality print we can, striving to achieve this in four ways.
We only invest in production equipment from leading manufacturers such as Heidelberg, Konica Minolta, Wollenberg and Morgana. Our litho presses have been calibrated by colour experts to meet FOGRA39 specifications and our digital presses are calibrated daily using an EFI ES1000 spectrometer to ensure we maximise quality and maintain consistency. The printing plates that we use are produced digitally using laser technology providing sharp first generation images from which we can print crisp, clear images. Our industry leading software allows us to seamlessly interface between the various production processes that are involved in producing quality work.
Jobs are managed using our online software Alto, allowing everyone involved in the print production process to see what we have in hand and where it is in the production schedule. Only when the proof has been approved by the client will we proceed to the printing stage. We only use quality papers and board from reputable UK Paper Merchants. All our papers are from sustainable forests nearly all of which are FSC accredited. Our vegetable based inks provide superb vibrant colours and when producing mixes for spot colours we use the Pantone formula guide to ensure we achieve the perfect match. We even use strong double walled boxes to deliver the finished job to make sure that it arrives in the same mint condition that it leaves our factory.
All the staff at Peppermint are experienced print professionals, with particular fields of expertise. Having all worked in the print industry for many years we have a wealth of knowledge in both new techniques as well as the tried and tested methods that allow us to produce a wide variety of work. We are able to advise and suggest solutions to printing problems that may help you in making decisions on what to produce and how best to do so. Although we certainly do not claim to have all the answers we will always endeavour to give a clear unbiased opinion or suggest where you may be able to find a satisfactory answer.
We care about what we do from your initial enquiry to the final delivery of your printed item. We like to treat our customers in a way that reflects how we like to be treated ourselves when dealing with our own suppliers. This culture is embedded in Peppermint from the beginning to the end of the process but we are always looking for ways to improve on our quality as technology improves and new materials and processes become available.
