Booths, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, purchased the machine from Service Offset Supplies (SOS), opting for a model with an IQ-501 system, which uses a spectrophotometer and scanner combination to colour correct on-the-run.

To accompany the purchase, Booths has also overhauled its workflow, installing the RealPro software, which offers PDF imposition and ICC colour profiles, as well as the ability to drive all devices in the building.

“Producing runs of 250 and below on our litho press was expensive and time consuming,” Booths’ managing director Steve Booth says, adding: “We needed to do it digitally, but it was crucial we were able to match litho quality.”

“Firstly KM has a better overall chemistry which naturally delivers a more litho-like appearance. Secondly our machine has an excellent registration system which means the sheet is precisely positioned every time.”

Booth adds: “Realpro is also great; it joins the dots. Before, our pre-press team had their specialist areas, but now they can all run any machine.”
