Chelsea, MI – Sheridan Books, Inc. (SBI), a leading book manufacturer located in Michigan, announces a significant addition to its color text and component printing capabilities with the installation of a second eight unit Heidelberg Perfector Press. The press arrived January 18, 2010 from a Heidelberg facility in Malaysia and after installation the press began printing four-color jobs with great success.

The purchase of this press brings increased capacities for SBI’s four-color text and component printing and is identical to the company’s existing eight unit Heidelberg Perfector Press. This Heidelberg is a 40-inch press which means that it can run a 32-page signature for trim sizes of 6-1/8 x 9-1/4 and smaller. For larger trim sizes, it can run 16-page or 24-page signatures—signature capability is determined by the actual trim size and paper stock.

Sheridan Books, Inc. is a custom book manufacturer providing professional publishers complete book manufacturing services. Available printing options include sheet-fed and web offset printing, and Digital Print Advantage. SBI offers one-color through four-color text and component printing capabilities. Multiple in-house binding styles include soft-bound and hardbound.

Sheridan Books is a division of The Sheridan Group (Hunt Valley, MD).
