Bradford & Bigelow’s fleet of Timson presses comprises one of the most efficient and responsive platforms in the industry. We specialize in the 8.5×11 trim size and lightweight 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 inline finishing — further expediting delivery and helping our clients to minimize back orders, reduce inventory obsolescence, and maximize profitability.
Your Best-in-Class Print Partner
We don’t just sell print. We build relationships and add value to your supply chain.
Bradford & Bigelow’s primary markets are educational, healthcare, secure testing, financial, and industrial catalogs — all markets requiring 8.5×11 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.
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!
Within our markets, Bradford & Bigelow is the quality leader. A market focus on one trim size, 8.5×11, UV inks that eliminate marking and web growth, the open head Timson design that prevents gusseting, and optically scanned barcoded 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 cannot match.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to let you know how extremely helpful you have been, working with me on our current project. We had a series of missteps at the last minute and had to make several changes to the final proofs – and each request was met with great professionalism, cheerfulness, and helpfulness. Great customer service!
Bradford & Bigelow has been a great resource. The service finished product quality and on-time delivery have all been first class. A strong relationship between our companies isn’t just because B&B provides printed products, but they provide solutions and professionalism.
