  • Xerox kit installed at Standford Hill Prison

    This is a sample of the types of brochures and pamphlets produced at the new digital print centre at the Standford Hill Prison on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.

    At the centre, prisoners will be trained in digital printing to enable them to seek gainful employment once they're released and hopefully prevent reoffending.

    Most of the centre's work will be for the HM Prison Service, though it's possible other government departments or outside businesses will contract work with it as well.

  • The twin hearts of the Standford Hill digital print centre: the Xerox Nuvera 100 Digital Copier/Printer (front) and the DocuColor 5252 Digital Colour Press (back).

    The Nuvero 100 is a state-of-the-art machine for producing high image quality black-and-white materials which prints up to 100 pages per minute.

    The DocuColor 5252 offers the first commercial colour printing capabilities in the HM Prison Service.

    The HM Prison Service chose Xerox kit because it would easily network with the Xerox machines in the service's seven existing print centres. Xerox will train prison supervisors on the equipment, who will in turn train prisoners, and will offer certification to prisoners who have attained the necessary skills.
