What We Do

PAPER & PRINT

There’s something to be said about a medium that has stuck around for thousands of years. While digital trends continue to grow, the emotional connection between a tangible physical product and people remains as strong as ever. In many cases, printed pieces capture greater attention from print than they do from internet or TV. By embracing advancements in technology, our services aim to bring you the very best in print.

COMMERCIAL PRINTING

The conversation between you and your audience goes beyond the digital experience and tactile communication is still very relevant. A printed piece:

  • Conveys exactly the message you want to convey in a visually compelling format
  • Creates a tangible, hand-held user experience
  • Inspires greater awareness and encourages further investigation
  • Keeps your message top-of-mind
  • Distinguishes your image, enhances your position, advances your interests
  • No job is too small or too big

OFFSET TRADITIONAL SHEETFED PRINTING

When you consider our depth, craftsmanship, and supportive technologies, you need to go nowhere else. Our range of powerful offset presses gives us the perfect solution for every project and every budget.

Offset printing is the staple of the commercial printing industry. With high quality color and a potential for savings on large quantity jobs, offset printing is a favorite for any client looking to make a big splash with the next print project. The process is simple. Starting in pre-press, an image is laser burned onto a metal plate. This plate, when put into the press, transfers the image to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. Operators constantly check the color quality and registration. This allows for a consistency in your project that’s unmatched by other methods.

  • Multiple Press Sheet sized presses
  • 1 thru 6 Color Sheet Fed Offset Printing
  • Quantity Range 100 pieces – 1,000,000+ Pieces
  • Eco Process Inks (soy and vegetable-based)
  • Eco Mixing Inks (soy and vegetable-based)

DIGITAL LARGE FORMAT PRINTING

Large Format Printing refers to print materials that are too large to be printed on the most readily available sizes of commercial printing presses and also smaller quantities. Sometimes called wide-format printing or grand-format printing, large format printing requires the use of specialty production equipment that can accommodate bigger-than-normal print dimensions. In the print industry, “large format” is actually a relative term because maximum print sizes vary from printer to printer. But generally speaking, large format refers to the following categories of print materials:

  • Window and Wall Posters

  • Maps, Diagrams and Charts

  • Event Announcements

  • Large Wall Calendars

  • Point-of-purchase displays

  • Store Displays

  • Promotional Signage

  • Child Growth Charts

  • Important Notices for Employees, Students or other groups

  • Standees

  • Horizontal or Vertical Banners

  • Exhibition graphics

  • Window clings

  • Decals and die cut stickers

As you can see, large format printing has many uses. It can be used to get attention from afar, to provide quick reference, or to provide a large visual for use in a classroom or other instructional setting. Also, most businesses use large format print materials for promotional purposes.

WEB PRINTING

While offset printing is a fantastic way to produce great-looking print projects, many businesses or individuals do not need large runs, so the best solution is digital printing. Digital printing does not require plates the way offset does, but instead uses digital ink. Digital printing shines when lower quantities are needed; think of a run of 50 greeting cards or 100 flyers. This allows for on-demand printing, short turnaround time, and even a modification of the image (variable data) used for each impression. Variable Data or VDP is used when each piece needs a unique code, name or address, or even a varible graphic such as a photo or pie chart. Offset printing cannot accommodate this need.

  • Setup costs are lower for short runs
  • Print only the amount you need, when you need it
  • Lower minimum quantities (as low as 1, 20 or 50 pieces)
  • Variable data capability (names, addresses, codes or numbering can be done easily)
  • Improved technology has made digital quality acceptable for more uses
  • APS can now print envelopes digitally
  • APS utiltizes a toner is made with plant-based “biomass” materials. It contains smaller particles than ordinary toner which cuts toner consumption by 30+%. We also recycle 100% of our toner and other consumables.

FLEXOGRAPHIC PRINTING

Flexographic printing, or flexography, is a type of printing process that uses a flexible relief plate. This type of printing is commonly used for non-porous materials like plastics and packaging materials. Flexo printing is unique because it adapts well to different materials and can use a wider range of inks, like water based rather than oil based inks. In addition, flexographic printing usually uses low viscosity inks to allow faster drying time and speedier production for lower costs and is ideal for labels on rolls. APS does all forms of labels, decals and die cut stickers.

SCREEN PRINTING

Screen printing was a technique first used by the Chinese almost 2000 years ago. Later, the Japanese adopted the screen printing process and used woven silk to create the mesh and lacquers to make stencils. The use of silk is where screen printing got its alternative name “Silk Screening”.

When it comes to apparel printing, screen printing is the industry standard for superior quality. Most graphic tees sold in major retail stores have been screen printed. The process is designed to make garments bold in appearance yet cost effective at the same time.

Today, screen printing is accomplished by making a mesh stencil (called a screen) for each color that needs to be printed. Screens must be lined up (or registered) and printed on test sheets to ensure that all of the colors line up correctly. Inks are then pushed through the screens one color at a time onto the apparel. Finally, each piece is run through a large dryer to cure the inks.

For nearly 30 years, APS has as made artwork, postives and industrial silk screens. So it was a natural progression to move into screen printing. APS utilizes some of the most advanced pre-press and t-shirt screen printing equipment available. Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff have a thorough understanding of their craft and take pride in every t-shirt screen printing job they produce.

APS has the expertise to accommodate virtually any garment type in today’s t-shirt screen printing market. Our customers call on us regularly for t-shirts, sweatshirts and team sport shirts just to mention some of the more common items. APS can also screen print on cartons and posters.
