Invests More Than EUR Three Million in Production

New 8-colour offset printing press expands online print shop's capacity.

Neustadt an der Aisch, Germany, November 02, 2013 --( By investing more than EUR three million, Onlineprinters, the internationally operating online print shop, has expanded the production facilities at its German site. Extra offset printing capacity was added in September with the purchase of a new state-of-the-art 8-colour printing press, the Heidelberger Speedmaster XL 106-8P, including a new CTP system for digital printing plate exposure:

"The sophisticated printing technology enables us to print our products even more quickly, efficiently and at more competitive prices to our customers' benefit," Walter Meyer, CEO of Onlineprinters GmbH, explains. More than 90 ultra-modern printing presses are presently running 24/7 at the Onlineprinters GmbH headquarters to handle the increased order volume in the web shop. The online print provider operates several web shops for the distribution of its large selection of premium-quality offset and digital print products to business customers in 30 European countries.

In line with our motto 'Printings simply ordered online', we have grown to become one of the leading online print shops in Europe within just a few years," the Onlineprinters CEO describes the online shop's growth course for premium offset and digital printed products "Made in Germany."

The Speedmaster XL has an hourly capacity of up to 18,000 sheets sized 75 x 106 cm – this is equivalent to an area of 48 football fields of printed paper per day. The printing unit is equipped with automatic colour management (inpress control) which guarantees colour fidelity and brilliant print quality. Both sides of a sheet can be printed in one pass thanks to innovative perfecting technology. The high quality of the printed products is confirmed by the re-certification according to ProcessStandard Offset (PSO). "Our customers can rely on the excellent quality of the products we print.
