AfterPrint Ltd recently installed a new Grafcut G52 Guillotine into our new site, we looked around at a few 2nd user options but once we viewed the G52 at AfterPrint's showroom in Warrington we were sold on the Grafcut. The advice, support and recent installation were all arranged with expertise and I can certainly recommend AfterPrint Ltd.
AfterPrint Ltd recently installed a new Magnum MC-35 Semi Automated Creasing and Perforating machine into our Print Room at Salford City Council. We approached AfterPrint Ltd after a recommendation from another local council print room and were really pleased with the professional attitude and technical knowledge of the team at AfterPrint Ltd. Our requirements were quite unique but they advised us that the Magnum range of creasing solutions would offer everything we need in one compact package. A demonstration was arranged and we purchased the Magnum MC-35 on the spot, it is a great product and fully backed up and supported by the AfterPrint team.
AfterPrint Ltd recently installed a new Matrix Duo 650 Roll Laminator into our new offices in London. We were recommended AfterPrint Ltd by a Print Company who we had been using for some of our large format laminating work as they had recently purchased a wide format solution from AfterPrint Ltd and were very happy with the product and the advice given. When I spoke with AfterPrint Ltd the first thing I noticed was that the knowledge on the machinery was excellent and they instantly understood our needs. They recommended the Matrix Duo 650 roll laminating machine as we had a requirement for both single and double sided laminating on small volumes of menu's and book jackets. They installed, trained and even gave us some free film to get us started!
