WOW!! What a fantastic time we’ve had today. Not only had we finished our comic yesterday, today was the day we get to see it printed and in our hands! Very exciting. However, that was not just it. This morning we arrived at Potts Print UK in Cramlington and met up with Ian White the Creative & Technical Services Director. When we arrived Ian took us all through the printing process producing huge plate sheets showing us all the exact way huge print runs are created. These printers are MASSIVE and can cost £1.5 million! It’s such a complex process but Ian broke it down all very easily and even finished with the Bieber!
It didn’t end there! After our talk Ian took us through to the factory mezzanine where we could see the entire factory floor hard at work. There were machines, presses, printers galore!
Check out what they were looking at, very impressive:
AND… guess what it didn’t even end there. Next we got taken around the factory floor and were told about all the machinery and what everything does. This is such a huge place!
