Westferry Printers

BREAKING NEWS! We are now able to offer high resolution printing up to 2000dpi. This produces beautifully sharp, smooth images and text of the highest quality – unique amongst coldset newspaper printers!

Quality, precision, professionalism, reliability and flexibility are what we are known for and always aim to deliver.

Westferry Printers is the printing arm of the Northern & Shell Corporation for their titles, Daily Express and Daily Star. We print well in excess of 1m copies of these newspapers and other regional titles for external customers every night.

We are a modern, dynamic company which caters for all your newspaper printing needs from conception, into production and through to distribution at the most competitive prices.

As the newest coldset print site in the UK, our state-of-the-art print equipment makes us one of the most technically advanced printing plants in the world. Our four high-speed KBA presses are capable of producing up to 360k copies per hour from 8-page tabloid to a 256-page tabloid with full inserting and stitching capability.

Highest Quality – newspapers, magazines, magloids & supplements

Our continuous improvement programme ensures that we always maintain the highest quality and reproductions of our products.

We have already brought two of our own magazines in-house, producing and inserting over 12m copies into our weekend newspapers every month.

We have won and/or been nominated for the prestigious printing award of “National Newspaper Printer of the Year” numerous times.

Commercial Printing Capabilities – stitching, trimming, inserting, endorse folding and cover attachment.

We have recently invested in finishing equipment, providing opportunities in the commercial market (including leaflets and flyers).

These high speed off-line systems offer endorse/quarter-folding with stitching into quarter fold spine; trimming up to four sides and multiple section and cover feeder for saddle stitching.

Flexibility – varying format sizes

We have new software that enables us to produce various format and sizes away from the traditional tabloid sizing. This provides real flexibility for our customers and opens up a plethora of options that will allow products to stand out from the norm.

Centrally located – ideal transport links

Westferry Printers is situated in Luton, minutes from the M1 and about 10 mins from M25, which is convenient for all national routing. As distributors of our own titles, we already have a national network in place, which, schedule allowing, can be taken advantage of, thus maximising efficiency and cost across the entire supply chain.
