Our Current Portfolio

Our Digital Solutions

Digital Printing

Digital printing is a method of printing that uses a digital-based image that is directly transferred to a form of media. Unlike lithography printing, digital printing does not carry additional set-up costs (such as make-ready) so is the ideal solution for shorter run printing jobs.

However it doesn’t stop there. In fact, there are so many benefits to digital printing and we want to make sure you knew so that you can make the most of these for your next promotional literature, direct mail, campaign literature, Annual reports and much, much more.

Scanning Service

We can scan all types of documents such as:

• Invoices
• Legal Records
• Patient & Medical Records
• Personnel Records
• Diagrams & Schematics
• Planning Applications
• Training Materials
• Manuals
• Notebooks

Litho Printing

Lithographic printing (Litho for short) were the first machines we installed in the late 90’s – hence the ‘litho’ in KMS Litho. Nearly 20 years on Litho printing is still the most popular printing process and quality and speed is always on the increase.

Here at ELC we generally use litho for longer print runs although we frequently produce in quantities of less than 100 where critical matching of Pantone colours are required or when printing on a heavy textured paper & board.

Modern litho presses are able to handle more substantial board weights and sizes, in most cases printing up to 600 micron board with a maximum sheet size of 720mm x 520mm (B1).

Common litho print projects include brochures, books, reports, newsletters, flyers, corporate folders, greeting cards, stationery sets, business cards and ‘cut to shape’ products for retail packaging.

ELC are extremely proud to be manufacturers of quality printed products here in London UK. We are passionate about meeting client’s requirements and tight deadlines and take great delight helping where we can.

Large Format Printing

We’re experts at delivering large format printing solutions. This generally means anything from A2 in size upwards. We can create almost any shape, size or quantity on demand.
