Key Capabilities

ABS has successfully built our business on the highest quality sheetfed/offset print services, offering superior capabilities and expertise for every project—from a simple two-color newsletter, to smaller, point of purchase signage, to complex, multi-color, die cut presentation folders. ABS can efficiently produce high-quality publications in the short to medium run range in a variety of custom sizes—our sheet-fed presses are excellent when the highest level of print production quality is required.

We offer:

  • Complete digital prepress services
  • Kodak InSite – web-based system for digital assets/file transfer and management
  • Computer-to-plate (CTP) digital technology
  • Two-color through six-color sheetfed offset printing with inline aqueous coating; conventional and UV ink capability
  • Full-service bindery and finishing services

Our investment in H-UV technology has proven to be a popular choice for packaging, point of purchase, and print communication materials. This advanced UV curing system enables us to expand our capabilities related to special print effects and coating techniques, creating high-gloss, wet-look finishes and dull, reticulated finishes.

In addition to giving clients the option to expand print effects, H-UV technology allows ABS to provide:

  • The ability to print on a wider range of substrates from newsprint to coated papers and plastics. It allows for increased vibrancy of color on offset substrates and instant drying of normally tough-to-dry-colors such as deep blue solids.
  • Shorter job turnaround time for our clients and overall pressroom efficiency because H-UV printed items are cured instantly by an in-line process. Since the UV ink dries as the sheet passes under the light on the press, the sheet is ready for the next production step as soon as it comes off the press.
  • Lower environmental impact because UV inks do not use solvents and they produce lower emissions (VOC’s) than conventional inks.
  • Final products that have greater resistance to smudging and scrapes—more than conventional inks.
  • Less warping and shrinking of the final product sheet because less heat is used in the process.

In addition to offering the latest in print technology, ABS is qualified as a G-7 Master Printer to achieve unsurpassed print standards.

ABS is also both Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSC®) certified as well as Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®) Certified.
