For three generations McLaren Digital Press has been committed to producing printing of unparalleled quality at competitive prices. It’s one of the reasons we’ve survived. Yet we’ve never been a company that stands still. Each generation has added its own innovations to the business. Some of these innovations have been based on improved technology, some on work practices and some have even resulted from unexpected opportunities. So what has the current generation provided? We’ve provided a number of innovations but by far the most important are the changes we’ve made to our resources and processes to set ourselves up as a leader in environmentally-friendly printing practices.
McLaren Digital Press operates out of two separate sites in Keysborough. Our offset capabilities are run out of the Aegis Clean Print HD site which has also been set up for high end security work. Our large format and smaller digital machines are around the corner at our McLaren Digital site.
Our 6 colour Heidelberg is one of only a few in Australia to be entirely waterless. This means that there are no harsh chemicals used in this process which is great news for the environment as well as our clients and workers. The waterless hi-definition print is a better, sharper and a more consistent dot than any conventional printing. There is no alcohol used in this process which means no volatile fumes and no discolouration of paper. This machine is kept in a secure room that is only accessible via a keycard so that we can produce all high security work including certificates, company reports, transcripts and any legal documents.
We also have the option of an Aqueous Coating unit which gives a smooth finish to all work without the discolouring that standard varnishes can produce and is much safer for the environment.
Our small format digital equipment is the most up to date technology available. These machines are suited for all small quantities of work up to SRA3 size. This can include Flyers, Business Cards, Binder Inserts, Stickers and Posters. The inline stitcher means we can print and staple office documents and booklets in the one process which saves time and money for our clients. Jobs can be turned around in as little as 24 hours.
We have one of the largest binderies in Australia all under the one roof. This means that all the finishing is produced in-house. So if you need Burst Binding, Saddle Stitching, Folding, Embossing, Foiling or Forme Cutting it makes sense to have all your projects managed by McLaren Press.
We have a wide range of machinery to cover all your Large Format Digital needs. This includes an Anapurna MV Flatbed Hybrid for all rigid substrates and a Mutoh Valuejet Eco Solvent for all roll form substrates. Our large format cold laminator gives that extra life and protection to all of your signs, vehicle wraps, POS and stickers. Our Kona Contour Cutter can cut any shaped decals which includes; vinyl lettering, POS decals, bumper stickers and much more.
One of the more recent directions McLaren Digital Press has headed is the manufacturing of Planter Boxes. These can be manufactured to any size needed and images printed can either be from an extensive library supplied by us or an image supplied by the client. These are great for corporate clients, retail clients and your home garden.
Our glass splashbacks are another addition to our extensive portfolio of manufactured products. We print direct to toughened glass with the latest ink technology and seal the print so that there is no cracking or scratching. These can be used at home in the kitchen, as a feature on a reception wall or on a display to advertise products. There are many different ways to mount these, the possibilities are endless.
McLaren Digital Press has achieved its goal of becoming a one-stop print supplier for all of our clients.
