Polestar Sheffield can comfortably boast that it is one of the few elite printing sites in Europe capable of producing almost 3 million catalogues, magazines, brochures and supplements every 24 hours.
Our latest £34million investment has delivered a purpose built Web Offset facility running alongside one of Europe’s most modern and largest Gravure printing plants.
The giant printing plant is strategically built within easy reach of the M1 with immediate access to the UK motorway and European road and rail network systems.
The five Cerutti Gravure presses are now supported by two 96pp Goss Sunday presses and a 64pp Goss short grain press. Stitching is undertaken by an unrivalled number of 11 Ferag lines; with this kind of unrivalled firepower it is little wonder that Polestar Sheffield is always the first choice for the majority of the UK’s national newspaper, magazine and commercial publishers.
Our clients can be safe in the knowledge that we will deliver on time, every time. The magazine racks and major stores across the country are testament to this, for they are filled each and every day with consumer magazines, brochures, publications and catalogues, the majority being manufactured in the very heart of the UK at Polestar Sheffield.
As winners of the prestigious ERA (European Rotogravure Association) printing awards we know about quality. Polestar Sheffield consistently delivers the highest levels of printing excellence, and we have been judged and acknowledged by printing experts across the continent as champions.
Polestar Sheffield has the technical expertise and knowledge to help you decide the best way forward for your products. Whether you require Gravure or Web offset, we can help you make the most competitive choice of process that is best for your business and will not compromise the quality
Using the latest engraving technology allows for short run work and dispels the long held myth that gravure is only for those with orders for millions of copies. Or perhaps you may prefer the web offset route and benefit from the combinations of quality and paper savings that the new 96pp and 64pp short grain presses can offer.
Polestar Sheffield is honoured to scoop environmental awards for our continual improvement approach to ‘Green’ issues. In addition to recycling not only our waste paper, we also recycle polythene, wooden pallets, metals, card and packaging. We even have our own water filtration plant that cleans all the water used in the printing process and returns it back into the drinking water system
