Printed Double Sided Envelopes
EGP are often asked to supply Printed Double Sided Envelopes, we have recently made dramatic improvements to this process. Feeding envelopes using our original feed table was awkward, the envelopes did not lie flat meaning we could only stack a small quantity at a time. We have now invested in specialist equipment that enables us to present a non-stop feed of envelopes to the press. As the envelopes arrive under the feed head they now lie perfectly flat, meaning they are much easier to feed. This enables us to print on both sides using the “perfecting” facility of our press to turn the envelope over during its travel through the machine. Allowing us to print the face and reverse of the envelope in a single pass at speeds up to 8,000 an hour. At the delivery end of the machine the delivery tray is replaced with a conveyor belt enabling the press to be run non stop. All of this can be seen in action in this video clip.
We are a proud supplier of printed stationary to Hertfordshire Police, who are delighted with the quality of our Printed Double Sided Envelopes.

2 Colour Printing – Great Value & Impact
In 2 colour printing, two ink colours are used instead of one or four on printed pieces. Adding a second colour to black and white printing will add colour and impact and can improve the professionalism and increase the response on marketing materials. A unique, readily identifiable spot colour is sometimes used by companies to create a brand colour that is used on all their marketing materials. The inks used are typically Pantone® colours, and are frequently used to print a logo, design or symbol in a unique colour. Pantone inks are the industry standard in two-colour printing because they are part of a standardized colour matching system.
Our B3 SM52 is perfect for 2 colour printing. Amazing speed and quality means we can not only offer you competitive prices, but fantastic quality. The SM52 can perforate and number all in pass, so complex forms are no problem. We regularly produce NCR (non-carbon copy paper) pads and forms for many of our clients.
