“It’s a truly valuable part of the Kale Print experience that sets us apart from our competition.”
Embracing of new technology, such as Kale Print’s hybrid ultra violet (HUV) offset printing machine - a first for the Bay of Plenty - allows for instant drying, helping the company meet the market’s demand for small-to-medium run packaging and printing.
“We’re producing more jobs than we ever have, but trends are tending towards shorter runs, and the need to provide faster turnaround and finishing.”
“We’ve become a full end-to-end solution for commercial visual communications, providing design and print services for not only traditional marketing and stationery requirements, but also signage, vehicle wraps, labels and packaging,” says Peter. “Print’s certainly not dead.”
