From the outset, you benefit from interfacing with a knowledgeable, courteous account manager who listens to your needs and takes the necessary steps to put your project in motion. And while he or she serves as your convenient liaison, you can still speak with our various department managers at any time for direct feedback. It’s not uncommon to have our company President assist you as a show of our support.
Submitting Your Job
When you submit a job remember to provide scaling and cropping for transparencies and prints, a full-size laser or color proof identifying all the elements used to create your file, and an electronic mechanical information sheet.
Our estimating procedure is one of cost-conscious integrity and accuracy. Experience and efficient processing of all the cost variables enables us to respond with a firm quote within 24 to 48 hours. Should the quotation exceed your budget, we will provide cost-saving options as a solution.
Projects containing electronic files go to our Pre-Flight department for a review and assessment of the information. This is a critical function that keeps your job under control right from the start and is usually done within hours of our receiving the disk.
We can receive your electronic files on a variety of media including CD, SyQuest, Magneto-Optical, Zip, Jaz or floppy disk, DAT, DLT or 9-track magnetic tape, in either Mac or PC format. Digital printing information can be sent to us via e-mail or accessing our FTP site at
The production process at Castlereagh begins with specialized technicians using advanced support equipment to accurately prep each job in the pre-press phases. Using our PREPS software program together with our CTP platform, we create fully imposed plates directly from computer files… a capability that speeds up the prep process, eliminates the cost of negatives and stripping and reduces the printing cost to our customers.
Printing Company Tour
The backbone of our operation, the pressroom, is fully equipped with a Komori and six Heidelberg printing presses that accommodate virtually any type of printing need, while handling extensive workloads simultaneously. Four of these units have 5- and 6-color capabilities. With printing capacities on 60lb. stock to 24pt. board, in sizes up to 40″. These sophisticated workhorses are designed to eliminate print doubling and shifting of register even at varying press speeds.
In-line capabilities allow us to combine two different printing methods in one print run or efficiency and cost control.
