Even with the explosion of digital communications… print still matters! Print helps us to engage and share on a physical level, more so than a website or an electronic presentation. It has been proven that by having something physical or tangible to touch, or by writing something down – makes it real, which in turn helps us to remember.
Whether it’s business stationery or an annual report, there is nothing like a beautifully design document printed on quality paper. Print is tactile and creates a quality product with a lasting impression, which has far more authority than a website or PowerPoint.
Each project is carefully discussed, researched, designed and produced, making sure that it works for you and your audience.
But how do we do it?
As part of the initial print design process we start by getting to know you and your business. By fully understanding your values, your objectives and the brief, then and only then can we begin to develop our initial ideas.
We always like to challenge the ‘status quo’ and ask ‘why’ – because it’s always been done that way doesn’t mean to say that it’s the best way! We will come up with a solution that will stimulate your imagination and set you apart from your competition, and to make you stand-out. Whether it’s an unusual finish or size, an amazing illustration or dynamic headline, the result should be spectacular. The best ideas are always a collaborative process between yourself, our knowledge and skills (combined knowledge).
The stages for a great design;
Look – Listen – Think – Develop – Design – Submit – Agree – Print – Deliver
The service we provide is massively important to us as by keeping you happy, hopefully, we get the next job. Some of our clients have been with us for many years. You choose us and you get a little bit extra – attention to detail is one of our unique selling points – and a friendly and personal service. Our clients rely on us to deliver a great job, on time, to budget and sometimes to very tight deadlines. Work with us and we will work wonders together.
We have suppliers that offer an extensive range of printing techniques and finishes, from conventional litho to digital printing and saddle-stitching to perfect binding. More specialist services include; laser and Zund digital cutting, large format printing (A2), Arizona printing, bespoke packaging, presentation boxes, wire-o binding, flat-lay books and mailing campaigns. All of these have a direct link to the final design solution.
The print and paper industry is evolving all the time. We are constantly keeping an eye out for new ways of producing unusual effects and creative print finishes. There are amazing print techniques available now, from digital varnish, digital metallic effects, in addition to tradition print finishes. We have sourced a range of special effect papers which are beautiful; leather effect, metallic finish, sparkly, textured and fantastic colours. These certainly give designs a ‘wow’ factor. We love moments when we receive samples in the post from suppliers – when we all gather around to share the new effects and colours.
