Platen Operator
Printing, Lithographic

Empress Litho is a leading high quality award winning B1 sheetfed litho printing company specialising in multi colour, high value projects for Design Agencies, Galleries, Museums, Artists and the wider design conscious community. We have an unparalleled reputation for excellence.

You must be fully conversant with all aspects of hand fed platen processes: die cutting, creasing, perforating, embossing, debossing and multi colour foil blocking.  This is a broad and varied role requiring a sound understanding of platen work, together with how this particular speciality dovetails in with other print finishing processes. Our B1 platen has been completely overhauled and modernised as well as being equipped with a 2 colour foiling system with multi zone heated back plate making this a highly flexible and versatile machine.

The role will involve producing technically demanding, high quality work. You must be highly capable under pressure, have strong communication skills and a real love of print. Additional post press experience would offer a distinct advantage to work elsewhere within our comprehensively equipped bindery.

Key attributes:

- Proven hand fed platen experience

- Strong technical knowledge

- Ability to work under pressure to deadlines

- Happy to work flexibly and plan own workflow


This is a fantastic opportunity to progress your career in a thriving business with a varied and rewarding environment.
