In January, SIA “Drukātva” received a challenging task from a client — to make B5 format books with 1800 pages using our new machinery; 85 copies of the edition would be produced. The staff at SIA “Drukātva” managed to complete the project successfully and the final product was delivered to the client after a few weeks.

When preparing such editions using the traditional printing technologies with such parameters, the cost could be several times greater; however, digital solutions allow us to cut the costs significantly — the actual cost of making one book stays the same no matter if one, ten or fifty books are printed. Moreover, only a trained specialist can distinguish books made using traditional and digital printing technologies. It is no secret that binding such thick books is a challenge for any manufacturer, especially if a high quality result is desired.

With the handling of this order SIA “Drukātava” has proved that it can prepare orders of any complexity quickly, yet keep high quality standards. We can handle everything from brochures with a couple of pages, to the larger hardcover books. We are certain this is the first digitally printed hardcover book of this kind in Latvia. This could very well be the thickest book printed and bound in Latvia during recent decades.

In the latest Latvian Business Annual Report (Latvijas Biznesa gada pārskats) for 2014, prepared by Firmas.lv and the news agency LETA, SIA “Drukātava” has climbed up to the 23rd position from the 37th a year ago, therefore, retaining the leading position among those printing and publishing companies, whose key specialisation is digital printing.

The Tops of annual reports of the Latvian companies are prepared based on three publicly available indices: net turnover, profit changes and profitability. Consequently, SIA “Drukātava” with its financial and growth indices has left behind not only all digital printing companies, but also many other printing and publishing companies that operate using very old technologies.
All in all the Latvian Business Annual Report for 2014 includes 120 Latvian printing and publishing companies.

“We are sure that digital printing, the increase of which in the total printing volumes is experienced every year, is the future of printing and publishing industry. With the mass production or editions of thousands decreasing and with the amount of individualised printing works printed in several hundred copies increasing, the digital technologies are certainly superior than the traditional printing opportunities and costs,” said Valdis Jirgens, Board Member of SIA “Drukātava”.

SIA “Drukātava” has invested more than EUR 200,000 in modernisation

After investing more than EUR 200,000, the book publishing and variable-information printing company SIA “Drukātava” has modernised and extended the range of its equipment, offering its customers a range of book finishing technologies for even more exclusive and brighter publications, and increase the production amounts in the traditional – printing of books upon request – business segment.

“With the purchase of a modern book binding machine, and the hardback production line our goal is to make impressive volumes appreciated by each and every booklover. Over the last decades, costs of exclusive books published in Latvia were extremely high due to the low circulation figures. However, if such publications are printed by digital technologies, we can make several tens or even only one copy of a book for a reasonable price, and you will be not ashamed to present the book as a gift to those who can appreciate a truly qualitative printing job,” said Valdis Jirgens, member of the board of SIA “Drukātava”.

Along with the installation of the new equipment, SIA “Drukātava” will continue its traditional business niche – printing qualitative books upon request. To develop the segment, the company has bought yet another printer OCE VarioPrint 6160 Ultra+ that allows increasing the production volumes and meet the growing demand for this type of service from the Scandinavian customers.  “We can be pretty sure that as for digital printing of books we are ahead of Scandinavia both in terms of quality and speed in the delivery of orders. More and more customers appreciate the fact we can print extra books any time for the same price for a unit, which makes us able to meet the sales amounts of each and every publication. Thus the publishers avoid the risk of not selling all the printed copies of a book or the circulation being too small to meet the demand,”  Mr. Jirgens pointed out the advantages of digital technologies.
