Effective Communication happens by Design.

graphic design In this ever-changing world, many of our customers now create their own artwork. We can take your digital files and produce a fully finished job to your specifications, or you can use our own inhouse Graphic Design service.

specialty finishes Add to your graphic design by embellishing your printed matter with one or more Specialty Finishes – this will draw attention to your stationery, add extra appeal and can help promote your business to a higher level.

That’s where Craigs’ graphic designers can help. Our inhouse graphic design team can offer you innovative and creative design options that will be sure to impress. We have years of experience and fully understand the printing process and what’s required to ensure you achieve an inspiring outcome. Craigs’ skilled use of colour is often the key.

Stand Out

from the crowd

Any of these Specialty Finishes is guaranteed to make your product ‘Stand out from the crowd’!




‘Embossing’ is typically accomplished by applying pressure which raises the printed image on paper or card so that it stands out in relief. ‘Debossing’ recesses the image. ‘Blind embossing’ is where the image is raised but not coloured.

‘Foiling’ is the application of pigment or metallic foil, often gold or silver, to paper or card. By itself or a coloured background, foiling is very effective and adds prestige. Foil stamping can be combined with embossing to create a striking 3D image.



metallic inks

Diecutting is a method for punching or cutting out any special shapes into paper or light card by using a metal form that is called a die. It can be used for making a decorative pattern or more functional objectives, such as producing a pocket folder.

Metallic inks give a metallic look and gleam that is just not possible using normal inks. Metallic inks contain actual metal particles which reflect light. They reproduce best on a coated stock. Panels of metallic ink look very impressive.





spot UV COATing

Gloss ‘Varnishing’ enhances the appearance of printed photographs as the coating reflects back the light and makes colours appear richer and more vivid. A matt varnish softens the appearance of a printed image and reduces glare.

‘Ultra Violet’ achieves a striking coating on printed material. Spot cover photographs in UV coating and they will appear noticeably richer and more luxurious; it draws attention and identifies the printing as a premium piece of literature in the perception of the reader.


Offset printing is what we know best! Craigs have been in the game for over 130 years and we know what it takes to produce high quality printing as well as meeting tight delivery deadlines.

offset printing


ith a fleet of seven offset and letterpress machines ranging from our 1-colour GTO to our two 5-colour Komori presses with running speeds up to 15,000 impressions per hour, our presses give us the capacity to ensure clients’ jobs are printed cost-effectively and delivered on time, every time.

Offset lithography is the most common high-volume commercial printing technology in offset printing. The desired image is laser-burned onto a plate and it’s then transferred from the plate to a rubber blanket and then to the printing surface. The lithographic process is based on the repulsion of oil and water. The image to be printed gets inked from inking rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

• Craigs use some of the latest industry technology including our recently installed XMF workflow and CTP (computer-to-plate) platesetter; together this results in the highest quality plates going onto our presses with shorter make-ready times, giving cost savings and superbly sharp print quality to our clients. • We can cater for any type of print job required, whether it be singlecolour invoice books, full-colour brochures, business cards, calendars, or gold medal award-winning coffeetable books. • Craigs are committed to delivering our customers with a product and experience that meets or exceeds their expectations, and with our equipment, expertise and passion, we know we can deliver.





Dots enlarged approx. 1500%

Process Colour is a system which enables vast amounts of shades to be printed using only four ink colours – cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Printed as a series of miniscule dots, these blend together to produce a smoothly tonal image.

“Craigs have chosen Komori offset printing presses because they are perceived to be the best.” Rodger J. Wills CEO

offset vs digital When it comes to printing today, you have several options, but which is best? It all depends on the specific requirements of your project whether to go for traditional offset or digital printing. Many jobs simply lend themselves better to digital printing, while others are better for traditional offset printing. Quantity: Very short runs can

be much more cost-effective with digital, while large quantities are likely to have a lower unit cost with offset printing. Paper Stock: The options are continually increasing for digital, but offset printing still offers the most flexibility for paper, finish, unusual printing surfaces and unique size. Colour: If you’re planning to print spot colours, offset printing will give you the best match. Digital printing

simulates the colour using fourcolour matching processes. Turnaround: If you need it fast, digital printing usually offers a quicker delivery. Proofing: Digital offers accurate proofs since you see an actual sample of the printed piece. Accurate colour proofing for offset printing can be expensive. Customisation: Digital printing offers the most affordable way to customise marketing material, direct mail, letters, etc.

or four centuries letterpress printing was the main

method of print production until the mid 20th century when offset became the choice of printers today for its fast, clean and efficient process. But letterpress still holds its own for its ability to perforate, score, diecut, number and slit paper and card. • The Heidelberg platen is known as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of letterpress machines and our platen is still maintaining its keep in our factory.

In fact, Craigs purchased the first Heidelberg platen to be installed in New Zealand in 1925. • We also have a 60-year-old Heidelberg cylinder and our experienced letterpress machinist can be seen quite often operating both presses at the same time. • Letterpress printing has coined quite a few phrases that we still use today – words like ‘stereotype’, ‘cliché’, and phrases such as ‘out of sorts’ and ‘mind your p’s and q’s’ to name a few.

labels& stickers Craigs prints labels and adhesive stickers any size, any shape – on paper, card, matt, gloss, permanent, removable, weatherproof, freezergrade, magnetic, and even 3D resin-coated labels!

Craigs are specialists in labels & stickers With over 100 years experience in the labelling industry, we pride ourselves on high quality, digital self adhesive labels – our sales team are ready to assist you with your labelling requirements.


s ssuppliers of high quality and cost effective labels and label products, Craigs is your one-stop shop for all your label requirements. We can offer you the ideal label at a very competitive price, in time to meet your needs. • Using either your own artwork or designed inhouse, your complete job will be produced in our premises under our control, assuring you of the quality of the finished product. • Our Mimaki CG-60SR cutting plotter cuts complex contour shapes with high accuracy while minimising distortion. With its half cut function, the backing sheet can be cut leaving a little bit of half cut connecting points, which can be easily detached when necessary. Various media without backing sheets can also be cut.

digital printing As technology continue to improve, the demand for digital printing is becoming greater and, because there are no plates or set-up fees, a small run is relatively inexpensive compared to offset printing. Digital printing is ideally suited for short-run quick-turnaround jobs. You only print what is required, therefore reducing wastage and storage costs.

variable data Variable data printing is a form of digital printing in which text & images may be changed from one printed piece to the next, without stopping or slowing down the printing process, – e.g. a set of personalised letters, each with the same basic layout, can be printed with a different name and address on each letter.

Craigs Print Express is your one stop shop for all your short-run digital print and photocopy requirements. Our state-of-the-art Xerox digital equipment ensures affordable superb quality.


raigs have installed three of the latest Xerox digital machines enabling us to produce exceptional quality work with a fast turnaround. Whether it’s a single page or an 80 page saddle stapled booklet, we have the equipment and experience to satisfy your print requirements.

10 Plain Paper Facts. “Don’t print it – we’re saving the planet!” How often have you heard that? Saving the planet by using less paper might sound good. But is it? Does paper significantly contribute to forestation, pollution and global warming? Actually, it doesn’t have to. Sustainably managed forests, and sustainably sourced paper, can claim some of the highest environmental practises of any industry. Indeed, forestry acts as a carbon sink. Whether it’s sourcing raw material from forests or the process of manufacturing at paper mills, sustainability has become a key attribute of the paper industry. It’s time to revisit the way you think about paper. Here are 10 facts that perhaps you never knew . . .

1 More trees are planted than harvested Plantation forests are growing. Between 2000 and 2005 the total area of plantation forests increased by an average of 2.8 million hectares per year. The majority of BJ Ball paper is sourced from these plantations.

Paper doesn’t 2 kill trees The world lost 7.3 million hectares of forest per year between 2000 and 2005. This is a tragedy that everyone in the paper industry abhors. But the vast majority of that loss is due to agriculture and urban sprawl, not paper sourcing. In fact, specialist, purpose-grown forests are expanding.

. White 3 without bleach Years ago, paper was bleached with chlorine. Now, most paper mills use Elemental Free Chlorine (EFC) or Totally Chlorine Free (TFC) processes, which produce far fewer toxic chlorides and dioxins. Other improvements include silverless imaging, vegetable oil inks, waterbased solvents, reduced waste through computerised processing and a massive reduction in water waste.

. Paper can be 4 sustainably produced For decades, the paper industry has pioneered sustainability programmes such as: ensuring native rainforests are unharmed; indigenous community rights are protected; forests are well-managed for biodiversity and recreation; more trees are planted than harvested; aggressively reducing chemicals, water and emissions at mills; sourcing energy from alternative sources and working towards carbon neutrality.

. Leading 5 the way The paper industry has hugely improved its environmental management, but some mills are more advanced than others. BJ Ball sources paper from leading mills such as UPM in Finland, which despite expanding its production by 40 percent between 1990 and 2007 also reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by 31 percent. Another supplier, Mohawk in the US, is now entirely powered by energy derived from renewable sources.

. Sustainable 6 versus recycled Many people assume recycled paper is better. Not true. BJ Ball offers recycled paper and supports its use. But recycling has hidden costs, including the energy used in collection and water use in manufacturing. In New Zealand, a large portion of reclaimed paper is exported and recycled paper is imported, obviating many of the savings. And there’s one other thing: recycling removes an economic incentive for forest owners to plant more trees..

.7 Verification To verify sustainable compliance, the industry relies on two main ‘chain of custody’ systems: the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). Both are independent, not-for-profit auditing schemes that strictly monitor every batch, from the stack of paper at Craigs, your local printer, all the way back to the area of forest that it came from. Some 60 percent of BJ Ball’s paper is FSC or PEFC certified. All of BJ Ball’s suppliers submit to certified management systems such as ISO14001, Blue Angel, CarbonZero or EnviroMark.

.8 Paper works People still love printed products. Try snuggling up to a laptop in bed. Research by Deloitte shows threequarters of consumers will choose a magazine when the same information is available online. And, believe it or not, 95 percent of consumers read their physical mail. Marketing on TV, radio and the internet works between 20 percent and 120 percent better when accompanied by direct mail.

.9 Email’s secret It’s easy to forget that electronic documents (email, internet and PDFs) have a carbon footprint too. In fact, the IT industry emits a similar amount of greenhouse gas as the airline industry. One recent calculation showed that a single advertisement of a plasma TV screen has the equivalent CO2 emissions as a 16-page brochure, once the embodied energy and electricity use are taken into account.

. Reading 10 is good New research suggests that Google is making us stupid. A large UK study of digital reading habits showed users young and old, “exhibit a strong tendency towards shallow, horizontal, ‘flicking’ behaviour . . . Society is dumbing down”. Reading books, by contrast, encourages linear processing of thoughts.

Conclusion There’s a widespread perception that paper damages the environment. The reality can be the opposite. BJ Ball Papers and its suppliers are aggressively reducing their environmental footprint and leading the way in sustainable sourcing and processing of paper. The best way to ensure sustainable forests are planted and to encourage the sustainable supply of paper products is to do this: use BJ Ball paper. Seriously, our paper is good.

Information for this article was produced by BJ Ball papers, one of New Zealand’s leading sustainable paper suppliers, and a key supplier to Craigs. To check the sources of all these facts, please visit their website:

Invercargill East Rotary Literacy Project Initiative.

IYP brings together Invercargill’s young professionals in an effort to support and nurture our young professionals by sharing their skills and experiences. It is a great platform to build on their knowledge and share ideas while having fun.

water marking



With Co

Watermarking is a time-proven method used to identify brands and a company’s individual identity. Watermarking cannot easily be reproduced, making it a cost-efficient way to combat copying and forgery. Using a specialised process that creates a translucent image in the paper, your logo or design is incorporated into your stationery as a watermark which is an integral part of the paper and can not be removed or altered, making the paper unique to you, the client.

Genuine watermarks can only be produced by a selective process which becomes visible when a sheet is held to the light showing a translucent image. This provides security against forgery and authenticates the document.

Enhance your corporate image with a watermark Watermarking is a specialist craft – so specialised that, to date, Craigs is the only company in New Zealand that can provide a watermarking service.


he watermarking process involves

applying a brand in the form of a translucent image within the paper stock which cannot be removed. It is used for both security and to enhance the stationery design and identify a company’s individual identity. It cannot easily be reproduced, making it a costefficient way to combat copying and forgery. Until it closed in 2000 the Mataura Paper Mill offered this service to paper merchants nationwide with a minimum paper run of 30,000 A2 sheets. The press that was used at the Mill was taken to Auckland but it couldn’t be made to work. At least five others tried to make it happen but were unsuccessful. Tony Phillips had operated the machine at the Paper Mill but when he

lost his job he believed there was still a future in watermarking using a letterpress cylinder. He took his idea to Rodger Wills (now CEO of Craigs) who also believed that there must be some way they could make it happen. Together, they formed a company called Aqua Image. After a lot of trial and error, they finally managed to get the process to work on a converted machine – Craigs’ first offset press, the Heidelberg Kord. Craigs were contracted to Aqua Image to do all the watermarking which has now been done successfully for over ten years. Selling mostly to the paper merchants Spicers Paper and BJ Ball for their clients, a minimum run can be as low as 3,000 A2 sheets. Around 200,000 sheets a year are also produced for the Australian market.

Craigs is committed to integrating environmental considerations into business wherever possible and will at minimum be in full compliance with all relevant legal requirements. Craigs will continue to advance its environmental policy with the aim to lessen our impact on the environment and to assure clients that the use of paper and products sourced from ‘renewable’ or recycled sources is the first consideration.

 Paper – Craigs’ recommended paper stocks are sourced from mills certified ISO 14001 in environmental management.

 Chemical Reduction – Chemical and solvent usage has been drastically reduced.

 Computer to Plate (CTP) – Craigs is a user of CTP systems eliminating the need for film and its associated chemistry.

 Waste Management – Wherever possible, waste generated at Craigs is separated for recycling. Active recycling occurs for Aluminium Printing Plates, Cardboard Packaging, Paper Waste, Plastic, Office Waste and Digital Print Waste Products.

 Vegetable Based Inks – All inks we use at Craigs are vegetable based, containing less than 1% mineral oils and are made from renewable sources.  Alcohol in printing – Isopropyl Alcohol is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions in the printing industry. Craigs does not use any Isopropyl Alcohol in our printing process.

 Water and Energy – Craigs has undertaken many initiatives to reduce water, heating and power consumption. Improvement in this area is continuous with regular review of best practice opportunities.

Why choose Craigs? With our highly skilled staff, an extensive understanding of the print industry, and a comprehensive range of services, Craigs has the answers to all your printing requirements.
