White Star Printing - Litho and Digital Printing

White Star Printing

H-UV Litho and Digital Printers

Based in Chandlers Ford on the outskirts of Southampton, White Star are utilizing the latest digital and litho technology to meet the needs of our clients throughout the UK. The latest edition is a Komori LS 429 H-UV press which offers huge benefits over conventional litho printing. This hybrid UV press ticks all the boxes in relation to environmental impact and most importantly quality. It is the first of its kind to be installed on the South Coast

Why Us?

There were four main considerations that made the Komori H-UV the press for us, all of which we felt would give us a distinct advantage over our competitors:

Shorter Total Turnaround Time
Job turnaround time is dramatically shorter than with conventional printing because printed items are cured instantly by an in-line process. UV curing is extremely effective in shortening the time from receipt of materials to delivery because finishing work such as cutting, die cutting and folding can be performed immediately.
Reduction of Stock Space
Since there is no waiting for printed items to dry as required with conventional printing, a large stock space for printed work is not required. The stock space necessary to accommodate our increasing number of short to medium runs of varied items can be reduced.
Improved Quality due to Powderless Operation
Conventional litho printing requires spray powder to prevent individual sheets marking during printing. Since the entire H-UV printing process is powderless, the factory has none of the troubles associated with the scattering of powder granules. The surface of printed items is smooth, which makes processing in finished operations very easy. The elimination of ‘dry back’ (the gradual process of the ink drying back into the sheet) also makes it easier to check quality.
Environmental Impact
Print buyers are now showing ever increasing awareness of the impact of their print on the environment. Historically, conventional litho print has discharged spray power into the environment and UV print has required extraction of ozone into the atmosphere. H-UV requires no spray powder and does not discharge any ozone making it a very environmentally friendly choice.

All these considerations have meant that we can offer our clients: Increased Quality, Quicker Turnaround, Competitive Pricing

What We Do

Multi Colour Work

We produce multi page brochures, reports and financial documents. HUV print technology will allow us to manufacture the complete range of colour products. Leaflets, folders, letterheads and many other standard print items can be produced in relatively short run lengths, the sort not normally seen in litho production. Products such as:

  • Reports and Accounts
  • Promotional Brochures
  • Catalogues
  • Letterheads
  • Leaflets
  • Posters

Digital Print range

Often clients purchasing multi colour work will look for reduced run lengths. This will fall into the digital print range and our digital offering will be a useful supplement to the litho solution. A similar product range will be available to those customers who do not need the larger run length of production associated with conventional print, obviously sold at a premium. As well as the above we can produce:

  • Business cards
  • Greetings Cards
  • Anoto digital print
  • Variable data and variable imaging mailers

Brendan Smith

White Star Printing listened to my requirements and specified their HUV press for the project. The print quality was faultless and the turnaround time was faster than expected. I will use them again.

Snows Business Forms

We've created an alliance with White Star Printing Limited to be able to service our ever increasing product range. They have access to alternative methods of printing and the capability to turnaround projects in a shorter period.


White Star Printing were exceptional in its service to us in producing our bi-yearly newspaper; both from a design/layout and print perspective. With daily support, a ‘can do’ approach, extraordinary patience (as we have many stakeholders and various updates made throughout the process), White Star Printing kept calm, smiled and nothing was too much trouble.

Extreme deadlines were met, which kept everyone happy. An absolute pleasure to work with. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
