When Gráficas Santa Ponsa opened its doors, everything was very different.
Calvià was a municipality with great potential, but still to be exploited. There were no large hotels with hundreds of rooms. In their place, there were small family lodgings and businesses that began their journey with effort and a lot of vision of the future.
We were in a small rental space, which after a few years was expanded by renting the premises next door. Already in the 90s, due to lack of space, we bought a plot of land and built the building that we continue to use to this day.
We were all more inexperienced than today.
Even then, many of our customers ordered printing matters of all kind from us, which we printed using letterpress machines and the typical lead letters that Gutenberg invented in the 14th century.
Little by little, we were incorporating old offset printing machines. The age of computers had not yet arrived!
Some veteran of the printing press still remembers how the floor of the workshop was covered with stains and the air smelled of ink. A smell that has always accompanied us and to which we have become very fond.
As the municipality grew richer, the volume of work increased, and the printing press had to adapt.
We started by renovating machines and buying new ones that made our work easier and our results improved. We went little by little, because each step was an important financial effort. But we knew we had to give them. And so the workshop grew and became professional.
With the advent of digital printing, we took another giant step forward
And, thanks to it, we were able to simplify small jobs, streamline some processes, and speed up our delivery times for some jobs.
We were the first printing company in Mallorca to dare to incorporate digital printing machines (before the turn of the century)… and it was a complete success. We managed to bring together the best of both worlds: traditional offset printing and a new form of printing, digital, which is here to stay.
All these small steps have made us the most important and fastest printing company in the west of the island. Because we always wanted to be. But also because circumstances made us like this.
Request what you need to print. We make it happen.
