Large Format Print & Finishing in Essex
Welcome to Kaps Finishing, a family run business with over 50 years experience in the print industry, we offer a professional service that really is second to none.
From fully automatic B1 die cutting on our Bobst to re-moist glueing on our Stahl mailing line, from a single wiro bound book to a multi million mail pack campaign, we are able to cover every aspect of the finishing industry.
We aim to provide our clients with the quality they have come to expect, at prices that are hard to beat.
Kaps Finishing has been established for over 12 years and as well as being one of the countries most diverse and reliable companies, we have gained a strong reputation for being the company to go to for projects that, quite frankly, no-one else can do. Our customer base, which stretches from Scotland to France is testament to that fact.
Whether it’s the tightest of deadlines or seemingly impossible projects, we will endeavour to find a way to get the job done, on time and under budget.
We are able to do this mainly due to our team of highly skilled, dedicated and experienced staff but also because we look to automate operations where others can’t. Couple these attributes with 24 hours, 7 days a week opening and and over 10,000 sq. ft. of space you begin to see why our clients come back time and time again.
Here at Kaps we are continually looking for ways to improve and have invested heavily towards this. From our specialised machinery such as automatic stripping for our B1 Bobst, 12 station collating machine and mechanically tipping on cards, sachets, CD’s etc, to setting up our first apprentice scheme.
