Booths Print – Konica Minolta C3080/ RealPro Workflow

Based in Penryn near Falmouth, Booths Print is one of the oldest print-related businesses in Cornwall, celebrating its 50th year in 2020.

According to Steve Booth the investment was prompted by a need to improve short run performance.

Crossprint 36 G+ Thermal CTP

Founded in 1974, Crossprint is the Isle Of Wight’s foremost quality commercial printer. “There are several small printers with digital machines but we’re the only printer with a litho and digital press on the Island,” says Operations Manager Stuart Murray. This also means Crossprint has the island’s only CTP system, and in 2019 a Cron machine replaced an ageing Fuji system to feed plates to the company’s five colour B2 Ryobi press.

Our work profile is very varied,” says Director Frankie Curran.
