In 2005 TGH expanded their capabilities with digital printing equipment to complement the offset production. The digital printing equipment has been continuously updated to keep up with industry capabilities.
Recognising the growing demand for digital print, TGH Design produces high quality documents, such as marketing brochures and manuals.
Using a mix of digital and offset technology, TGH is able to optimize their workflow based on quality requirements, run length, page count, etc.
The digital portion of the business now accounts for 50% of the revenue, due to changing trends of shorter run lengths and quicker turnaround times.

The applications:

  • 250x350

TGH Design produces colour as well as monochrome publications digitally. Monochrome User and Service Manuals produced just-in-time, in multiple languages, is one main application.
Most of the jobs are short turn around time with various run lengths. A significant number of the applications are booklets between 8 sheets (32 pages) and 30 sheets (120 pages).
The professional booklet quality of the SquareFold allows for printing on the spine. The user-friendly control panel provides Language options and easy to navigate functions.
