We specialise in Flexographic and Digital printing.

While Digital allows for up to 500mm wide and a resolution of 234 lines per inch at real 1200dpi making it the most advanced digital label press in Ireland.

No matter what process is used we can finish your labels with any permanent or removable adhesive, UV coating and put on to a roll, sheet or fan folded.

We stock a huge range of gloss and matt paper, vellums and special substrates such as day-glo (
Fluorescent), clear film and thermosensitive material. Most requirements would be for a permanent adhesive, however we can also apply an extra permanent adhesive for more difficult surfaces, a removable adhesive to use for labels that will need to be peeled off without causing damage to a surface, frost-fix, deep freeze and wet process for labels that will be used in fridges and freezers and will then not peel off.


Our workforce has expanded to a current total of 22 staff with over half having over 10 years of service with the company.
