Branding

Development I spent quite a lot of time experimenting with creating my own ink, embossing and trying to make something quite complex and crafty. Then I was fortunate enough to be able to design a promotional leaflet for LGP Print in Leeds and as a result, all of the processes and finishes were out of my hands and they were in control of the final product.

About us

What we do

LGP Print are commercial printers based in Leeds. We are one of West Yorkshires leading suppliers of print. Investing in the best equipment and staff allows us to provide a full range of services including litho and digital print, fulfilment and storage. We offer exceptional levels of service, from your first contact to meeting your delivery deadline. For over 30 years LGP Print has a reputation for supplying quality print on budget and on time, indeed over 60% of our customers have been with us for more than 10 years and many others from day one. From the humble business card to brochures, leaflets and folders LGP Print are the printers of choice for a large number of local and nationwide clients covering a wide range of industry sectors.

From start to finish everyone at LGP Print always puts you the customer first. From printers who may spot an issue with a job on the press and call the customer just to make sure before it becomes a problem, sales managers that turn in on Saturday mornings to collate and pack exhibition folders, to the MD who’s been here until midnight many a time getting that vital job out when we promised it.

Digital: Our Xerox digital press enables us to offer our customers extremely cost effective short run full colour print with the added bonus of faster turn around times. With paper weights from 90gsm to 300gsm its the ideal press to produce a 1 off poster or a very small quantity of leaflets, invites business cards, or maybe even 10 copies of a spiral bound training manual, the possibilities are endless.

You may need help with design or layout, technical help deciding which paper or board would best suit your project or suggesting a particular finishing technique, we can help you find the perfect solution and if we can save you money whilst doing it we will. Some customers want to be involved throughout the whole process and may even want to see their work on the press if you do please ask we’re more than happy for customers to pay us a visit here in Leeds.

Finishing: Last and by no means least is the finishing department, our range of in house equipment from collators, bookletmakers, padders, drills, laminators, die cutting facilities and specialist equipment for stringing tags enables us to maintain our own exacting quality standards to the end of each job and ensure that our customers deadlines are met.

All production takes place in-house including specialist operations such as laminating and die cutting this means we maintain our own high quality standards throughout the whole production process. March 2008 saw LGP Print gain the iso 14001 environmental standard which recognises the fact that whilst we are looking after you our customers we’re also doing everything we can to look after the planet. After completing your print job we will store it at our secure on site warehouse and despatch it as and when you need it, using our reliable local and national transport partners.

Final Product I had the final product printed at LGP and I am really pleased with the outcome. They will be using this leaflet to distribute to their clients to promote themselves, and I will be making some minor alterations to the images used here so that they are a bit more consistent with the website.

Final Product

Litho: The litho printing process is the ideal method of production for the medium to larger run jobs. Litho also has the benefits of being able to print on a much wider range of papers and boards and the ability to print spot colours, and also use metallic inks, sealers and varnishes. A colourful brochure is great way to promote your business.

Environment and Ink

Design: Maybe you want us to create a new corporate identity, or update an existing design perhaps you’ve already done all this yourself and want to supply us with your finished files and you just need a little help getting them ready for printing. Whatever your needs are our team of designers can help from initial design to finished product working with all the latest versions of Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator. LGP Print will ensure that not only does your job look good on the screen but looks good on paper.

As a print manufacturer we accept wholeheartedly our social and moral responsibilities on environmental issues and have put in place positive and far reaching initiatives to help reduce our impact on the environment Green printing involves much more than using recycled paper and because LGP print gained ISO14001 accreditation in 2008 you can be assured that its commitment to the environment is played out in everything it does, from sourcing materials to its energy consumption and all business operations. Our ink suppliers Siegwerk and Van Son and are just as concerned about the environmental issues of print as we are at LGP. Siegwerk Sustainability Policy: Anyone who aims to be a reliable partner to their customers today has to put the right product with the desired properties to the printing press at the right time. And now the requirements are higher than ever: The products have to be sustainable. Companies are also setting the highest standards relative to compliance with laws and ethical principles. Van Son Technology: Our new formulations are designed to accomodate the needs of the evolving print market, whether that means faster drying ink, earth friendly products, or adjusting to your paper stock.
