From my first involvement in the Nuclear community Catton Print have been producing the magazine for us from the old campaign magazines and now the exposure magazine you have today. Here is a spotlight on the company and how they are an integral part in getting your magazine to you.
Established in 1989 as a partnership between two Norwich printers, Simon Laskey and Stuart Rowles, Catton Print quickly established itself by a hands-on approach to its business. Throughout the 1990s the business grew quickly and when Stuart retired in 2000 Simon took over as MD.
The key to the success since then has been the purchase and continual updating of quality equipment operated by well-trained staff, and always aiming to produce the kind of work that customers are really pleased with.
We are spread over two branches, our Base in Roundtree Close is home to our litho and digital presses and a full complement of finishing equipment.
Our other branch in Salhouse Road houses copying, digital and wide format printing as well as a large retail outlet selling a full range of stationery items along with greetings cards, soft and wooden toys.
The Exposure magazine is printed on 130gsm silk paper which comes from FSC accredited sources and as we are committed to helping the environment we give a percentage of our paper costs (which is not added to any invoices) to the Woodland Trust, a Organisation who manages new forests of native hardwood trees in the UK, I have personally planted over 300 Oak trees.
To produce the magazine it is printed process colour throughout which means all four colours, cyan, magenta, yellow and black make up the full range of colours used in one pass through the press. From the artwork supplied we impose the pages and send to our CTP machine that produces the printing plates.
After drying the flat sheets will be folded and gathered together to be turned into the magazine you receive.
