Bates Printing produces a full range of commercial printing: single-color product sheets as well as full-color brochures with special finishes, professionally bound books and calendars, intricately die-cut pocket folders, reserved seat tickets with visual impact for regional sports and entertainment venues, corporate identity packages, and exquisite art posters.

Using high-end digital technology, Bates Printing can accept files in any format. Our expert pre-press department can use digital files directly, adapt files if necessary, or completely reconstruct a job—whatever it takes to turn client materials into a professional printed piece. From the smallest labels to our largest press sheet (19" x 25.5"), digital proofing and platemaking are achieved with a new Heidelberg computer-to-plate four-up platesetter.

Heidelberg technology continues in the pressroom, where the choice of presses is dependent on the job size and run length. Bates Printing has also maintained its letterpress capability, both hand-fed and automatic, for special imprinting work. In addition to creative effects for artists and museums, our letterpress process is used to print shopping bags, tissue paper, and other unusual substrates.

Finishing services at Bates Printing include die-cutting, scoring, perforating, and numbering. Right angle and gatefolds augment our standard folding capabilities. Drilling, saddle stitching, padding, and customer-specified packaging are routine bindery operations. The staff’s attention to job detail is vigilant from inception through shipping.
