The Imaging Centre – Services To The Greetings Industry focus

THERE'S plenty to celebrate at the Imaging Centre as their exclusive on-demand web-to-print service IC Simplicity has clocked up more than 100 live users - and they've extended their working hours.

And the growth means the digital print specialists have expanded on the building front too as sales director Adam Short explained: “Due to the growth of IC Simplicity we’ve returned The Finishing Centre to Hawkwell Business Centre where the company had previously been based.
“Now our fulfilment, storage and quality control departments are all based at Hawkwell while our customer service, print, and print finishing departments remain at Archers Park in East Peckham, Kent.”
A year after the initial launch of Simplicity the family-run company have clocked up their first major milestone with more than 100 live users signed up to the service that allows greetings card publishers to utlise the technology and place orders from an online library of their own designs that can be sent straight to the press – wherever they are in the world.
Print quantities can be as few as six cards up to more than 15,000 within a single story, and the system gives real-time information about products so publishers can make business decisions based on the facts.
Late summer and autumn are the traditionally busy periods at the Imaging Centre so they have decided to ease the pressure by extending their operating hours.
“To reduce any disruption throughout our historically busy period,” Adam added, “and to keep turnaround times to a minimum The Imaging Centre will be providing all their normal services from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday and 8am-1pm on a Saturday. These hours apply September through to November.”
With spiral-bound and stapled notebooks, business cards, bookmarks and calendars among the Imaging Centres additional services, they have also expanded the print finishes available – die-cutting, embossing, debossing, foiling, flittering, digital foiling, and even white ink processes to enhance any design.
