We are a printing house oriented at high-quality prints.

Client-friendly and versatile printing service

Every client is important to us. We are ready to help and advise if the client has an idea, but does not know how to accomplish it. We always put the client’s wishes and demands first in order to achieve the best match of the design and the printed result both in the price and the quality.

In business since 1992, Paar is a printing shop with offices in Tallinn as well as Tartu. The 28 members of our team contribute to providing and further developing a fast and high quality printing service every day. In addition to Estonia, we are also active in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Russia, and Latvia.

Our products include books and brochures (both in soft and hard cover), promotional materials (hand-outs, flyers, etc.), spiral-bound printed matter, calendars, magazines, newspapers, and posters. Our years-long experience and professional help is available to our customers for designing the printed matter as well as the selection of the materials.

Environmentally friendly production is extremely important to us. We were the first in Estonia to start using the Suprasetter A74 for producing chemical-free printing plates. Since 2010, we are one of the few printing houses in Estonia to be granted the FSC Chain of Custody certification. We print with nature-friendly plant-based printing inks and since November 2015, we have been using 100 per cent green energy.

Modern printing equipment

In order to provide high quality printing service, we find it important to use up-to-date technology. Since 2010, we have been using the first-rate five colour printing machine Heidelberg Speedmaster SM74-5.
In addition to offset printing, we also have a digital printing department where we use the modern, fast, and versatile digital printing machine Xerox Versant 3100 Press.

We constantly improve and upgrade our post-production equipment. For lamination, folio, folding, and for making perfect bound or saddle-stitched brochures, we use the equipment manufactured by Horizon (Japan). The latest additions to our equipment have been the new guillotine Schneider Senator and the fast and versatile Swiss-made Multigraf creasing, perforation, and folding machine.

New quality management system

In 2017, we obtained the quality management system certificate ISO 9001:2015. Our further endeavours shall be based on the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 certificate. We shall conduct risk assessments of quality and focus on risk-based thinking. This helps us provide the best service to our customers.

New equipment

In September 2018, our department of digital printing made a leap forward by setting up the new generation printing machine Xerox Versant 3100 Press. It is one of a kind in Estonia and there are just two of those in the entire Baltic states. In addition to being newer, bigger, and shinier than the old one in every respect, it offers quite a lot in the way of new functionality, it works faster, and its print quality trumps the old machine. Some of the new goodies:

  • Larger format. The machine now prints on sheets up to 330×660 mm in size.
  • More versatile paper range. The new machine prints on a wider range of paper starting from 52 g/m² up to 350 g/m².
  • C4 and C5 envelopes. From now on, we can also print on C4 and C5 envelopes.
  • PET sheets. We can print on PET sheets now.

These new functions are not the end of it. The print quality of the machine has also made a significant leap forward. Improvements have been made to colour accuracy, which is now comparable to that of offset printing and sometimes even better, and there have been enhancements the profiling and calibration technology. Plus, the new machine is certainly faster, as well.

We are happy to note that everything that the old machine did, the new machine can do just as well and better. Printing, folding, binding – everything works splendidly. PDF in, print product out. Simple.

Our brand new and modern binding line StitchLiner Mark III is the first of its kind in the Baltic states. It is remarkably fast (up to 6000 brochures per hour) and is able to bind even the smallest format (114×89) with two staples. What’s most important, however, is that now we can stitch A4 in Landscape format.

It does loop stitching, too. And pretty much everything else that has the word ‘stitching’ or ‘binding’ in it. Automatically and precisely.
