Doing it all. All under one roof.
At Allied, we save you the time and aggravation of searching around for multiple printers to fulfill a wide array of projects. Our leading-edge equipment and our highly-trained technicians provide you with unmatched versatility, from prepress to fulfillment, all under one roof. We’re constantly upgrading our operations efficiency, productivity and technology, to continuously meet your ever-growing needs – no matter what they may be.
Our state-of-the-art electronic prepress is where your job gets off on the right foot. It’s where the know-how of our people fuses with our equipment and technology. Prepress creates the job architecture, so we don’t take it lightly.
Running 24 hours a day in three shifts, our prepress department pre-flights every job, provides secure FTP and remote back up of files, handles proofs and proofreading, and excels at color retouching and color management. We do this all with the most current versions of industry standard file prep and editing programs.
At Allied, we rely on the fastest sheetfed presses in the industry. State-of-the-art machines that can print 20,000 impressions per hour. Operated by some of the industry’s most highly-trained and longest-tenured technicians. So if you want a specialty coating, are using a textured or specialty paper, require printing on plastic or other substrates – or need to create stunning short term window graphics – chances are it’ll be one (or more) of our sheetfed presses that spring into action to get the job done right.
Operating around the clock, our web offset presses can make short work of long runs. They feature in-line capabilities to finish jobs completely, right off the end of the press, and color systems that allow color consistency throughout the run. All our web presses are high speed, heatset and ensure that your job will get done right. Right on time.
Digital / Variable
At Allied, we have the largest fleet of Canon ImagePress digital printers in the country. We have wide format digital printers for signs and banners, plus digital printers that work on paper, vinyl, fabric and textiles. If it can be done digitally, we can do it for you. With our on-demand printing you can customize and personalize each piece of a direct mail campaign on the fly, which means faster turnaround times. Our three Xeikon 9800 roll-to-sheet digital presses are perfectly suited for high-quality direct marketing, offering an unmatched combination of speed, flexibility, and versatility in variable lengths. On-demand printing with Allied is the most cost-effective way to get short runs produced quickly.
Ideal for short runs of signs and banners, our large format printers can print on just about anything, from substrates up to 2” thick, to fabrics, metal, paper and plastic. This is done with water-based, latex inks that can print on flexible materials or UV ink that’s great for printing outdoor signage. All with vibrant, crystal clear resolution and color consistency across materials.
In-house Bindery & Finishing
Most printers don’t have an in-house bindery. They outsource this critical piece of the puzzle. But at Allied, we have total control over your finished product’s quality and turnaround. Our 74,000-square-foot bindery is the largest in New England. We’re affixing, banding, binding, cutting, folding, gluing, perforating, scoring, stitching, tabbing and wrapping on a daily basis. We take pride in our capability to finish what we started.
At Allied, we have our own in-house USPS satellite office to help you increase your speed to market and deliver postal optimization, improve your response rates and enhance the overall effectiveness of your campaigns. Putting your information or offer directly in front of your targeted recipients is the most cost efficient way to increase awareness and sales. So we handle Data and Mail processing, variable data print personalization, presorting, ink jetting, fulfillment, kitting, multipiece mailing campaigns, assembly and insertion all under one roof.
