Our Equipment

We have a strong equipment inventory. Since printing is considered a manufacturing business, our equipment choices have a major impact on how well our company can perform.

Whether copying or printing in color, the Xerox 700i, DocuColor 240 and DocuColor 260 deliver outstanding and consistent results in color or black and white. The DocuColor printers are ideal for short-run, print-on-demand color jobs. These machines can handle paper sizes up to 13 x 19 and different thicknesses as well. This enables a wide range of applications such as business cards, posters, menus, or color covers that are top quality and at a price you can afford. The Kodak Digimaster E125 is a high quality, high speed black and white digital printer. If you need crisp and clear halftones and text, this machine will meet your expectations.

Gerald Printing uses printing presses, including three two-color small presses, a large 40” two color press, and our largest — the five-color Heidelberg Speedmaster press. We can print a four-color job with an additional spot color, varnish, or metallic ink with one pass through the press. This ensures higher quality and faster production.

No job is complete without proper binding and trimming. Gerald Printing offers several binding options for booklets and brochures. After the pages are collated and stitched, they are then precisely trimmed with the saddle stitch matching. Flat work is cut on the electronic paper cutter.

 Our philosophy of providing consistent, on-time delivery and the highest quality printed images is made possible by our job workflow systems, our talented team of coworkers, and our top-notch equipment.
