Horton Print Group was one of the first companies in the North to introduce Computer To Plate technology. CTP is a system which allows images to be sent from a computer direct to a printing plate. This cutting-edge technology eliminates the use of film, time and cost of planning and producing a product.

Another benefit of CTP is increased image quality because they are imaged from digital files, preventing generation loss. It also produces first generation image dots, which remain at the same percentage throughout the life of the print, and are superior in quality to older machinery, giving the image a sharper quality. In addition, it has a proofing system, which produces exact replicas of print jobs.

CTP is one of the reasons why Horton Print Group is able to offer a Speed Print Service.
