North Star Printing

CAPABILITIES

Booklets

Booklets and Magazines professionally printed to your exact specifications. This can be a tricky adventure if you don’t have a skilled guide at your side. Our trained staff will help you make those decisions so you do not get lost and you will arrive at your destination using the best path, per your specifications.

Marketing Materials

Marketing materials making sure that your image is the way you want it to be. We make first impressions every day, so we know how important they are. Quality can set you apart from your competitors and leave that lasting impression. Our presses provide the highest color quality in the industry. We have a goal to help you gain greater success through advanced technology.

Media Kits

Media Kits to engage your customers and bring in business. They come in all shapes and sizes and we adhere to the phrase, “Why be normal?”. To think “out of the box” and create something new with your end in mind is where we want to be. Let’s make that journey together!

Business Notepads

Business notepads to leave your mark. This can be a sticky job but someone has to glue it. Notepads are still a great way of gathering and sharing information. From notes and doodling in a meeting, to taking orders from customers, and that preverbal “great idea on a napkin”. Why not personize the pad and make it your own?

Line

At Northstar Printing, the backbone of our technology innovation is the Prinect workflow software which enables communication between all the equipment in our facility. Preset information is sent electronically to all the equipment in the plant, dramatically reducing make ready time. This typically results in being press-check ready on the first pull, with less waste, quicker turnaround and overall lower cost of job completion. But the news keeps getting better…

Samples of your job continue to be analyzed and minor changes made as the system improves quality. At each stage of the process the system learns more about your job, communicating, and centrally storing this information. The final stored information can be used for re-orders, ensuring consistent quality and faster turnaround times.

Best of all, this integrated system provides real time visibility to our scheduling team, allowing them to quickly respond to your ongoing printing needs. Rest assured, at North Star Printing our goal is superior quality, on time and on budget. That is the North Star Printing difference.
