North Star Printing


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.
