Our Mission – Bradford & Bigelow produces complex, time-sensitive, mission-critical, zero-defect projects at quality and service levels exceeding our customers’ expectations. If you have a project that requires these high standards, please call us today. You will not be disappointed!
Our Platform – Bradford & Bigelow’s fleet of Timson presses comprises one of the most efficient and responsive platforms in the industry. We specialize in the 8 1/2″ x 11″ trim size and light weight papers. Additionally, with all bindery services performed internally, our lead times are the best in the industry! We enhance our conventional platform with a robust in-house digital and inkjet book factory complete with in-line finishing — further expediting delivery and helping our clients to minimize back orders and inventory obsolescence.
Our Markets – Bradford & Bigelow’s primary markets are educational, healthcare, secure testing, financial, and industrial catalogs — all markets requiring 8 1/2 “x 11” product, lighter papers, zero defects, and rapid response times. B&B also provides printing expertise to various governmental agencies where zero defects are a requirement, not a request. With our expanded inkjet and digital book factory, B&B is now offering four-color process and variable data printing within our vertical markets.
ISO 9001:2015 Trained Work Force – At Bradford & Bigelow, our focus has always been on being “Best in Class” not biggest in class. As an ISO 9001:2015 Certified company, we have 125 talented and highly trained team members working on the same complex projects year after year from the same 100,000+ sq ft facility staffed 24/7. Within our markets, we are always the number one or two supplier for our major clients — and for many customers we are the only supplier.
G7 Master Certification – Bradford & Bigelow is a G7 Certified Master Printer, the highest quality level awarded by the national trade association, Idealliance. G7 Certification requires a set of standards and a process for calibrating color between proofing systems and presses. The emphasis in this specification is on grayscale balance. The goal of G7 is to provide visually consistent, repeatable color between the approved proof and the printed sheet. Our G7 Master Certification provides you the peace of mind the proofs and printed sheets will almost be an exact match.
Environmental Leader – Bradford & Bigelow has invested in the best green technology available to provide our team members, clients and planet earth with the most environmentally friendly print platform in North America. Our Timson presses produce zero toxic VOC emissions by utilizing more expensive UV inks and drying technology. These inks also greatly reduce energy consumption by eliminating costly and wasteful ovens and chillers. On the inkjet side, B&B utilizes the most advanced dye-based inks, which require minimal heat and eliminate the need for the massive ovens that legacy pigment-based inkjet machines require. At B&B, “environmental stewardship” is an everyday practice and investment — not just a slogan!
Quality Leader – Within our markets, Bradford & Bigelow is the quality leader. A market focus on one trim size (8.5″x11″), UV inks that eliminate marking and web growth, the open head Timson design that prevents gusseting, and optically scanned bar coded signatures – all combine to create a superior manufacturing platform. Our Print Platform, coupled with our ISO 9001 and G7 trained workforce, enables B&B to consistently produce a superior product and service experience that more diversified and non-certified suppliers can not match.
