Case Study: Carraig Print Litho Press

Carraig Print Litho Press is a family run printing business based in Cork. Inspired by a family tradition of printing dating from 1901 the company was founded by Wanfred & Carmel Waterman and they have been providing an outstanding print service for over 30 years.

About The Project

Carraig Print Litho Press offer a complete service to a variety of customers – from small print jobs for individuals to complex orders for multinationals. They are passionate about the work they do and strive to deliver exceptional service on every order.

To consistently deliver excellence to customers, Carraig Print Litho Press knew that they had to have the best equipment. Having been recommended to them, they approached us to provide them with the best solution. Our range of Canon machines and our reputation for first class service and support appealed to the team and matched their exacting requirements.


We conducted a thorough print audit for Carraig Print Litho Press to establish exactly what was needed. They wanted to be able to produce top quality print jobs in a reliable and cost controlled environment.

We recommended the Canon ImagePRESS C810 range of printers complete with Fiery H350 controllers to give them the speed, flexibility and reliability that was required. We understood their need to produce top quality prints without compromising on productivity.

We also installed the Vario Print VP110 for high volume black and white printing, ideally suited for the book printing section of the business.


All machines are equipped with the necessary software to track and monitor output and allocate costs back to the correct job. The increased clarity on production costs have facilitated the management team and assisted with budgeting and forecasting.

The quality of customer service has increased due to the move to the Canon machines. Print jobs are more consistent, productivity is higher and turnaround time is higher. Docutec’s swift and  reliable service means that issues are responded to more quickly
and downtime is significantly reduced.

More advantageous cost per print rates allow Carraig Print Litho Press to be extremely competitive in the  market place for existing and for new business.

We are very pleased with our move to Docutec – They provide a great service and are always available when we need them. The Canon machines that they recommended are wonderful and are making our lives easier and our work, more productive. I would highly recommend Docutec as a print partner.
