PrintWeek Awards 2013 Newspaper Printer of the Year - Trinity Mirror Printing (Watford)
Tuesday, October 22, 2013
This story is set to run and run: Trinity Mirror Printing (Watford) has won this category three years in a row, and what stood out for judges this year was "consistently punchy colour".
The Daily Mirror Olympic Souvenir Edition of 28 July 2012 was a highpoint for a newspaper that remains a core business, with a nightly print order of around 500,000 copies requiring three high-speed presses. The souvenir edition comprised 96 pages including Olympic, racing and puzzle sections, all printed in one pass on a coldset web-offset presses. The Daily Mirror recycled newsprint brings its own demands on print quality, such as showthrough and strikethrough. But the business consistently performs to ensure everyone reads all about it in titles including The Racing Post (around 80,000 copies nightly), The Independent (around 130,000 copies nightly) and The Irish Independent on Sunday (around 15,000 copies per edition).

Deadlines, as with most newspapers, are tight, which makes good quality printing hard to achieve. But the Norwich printer delivered for Angling News and Classic Car Weekly, Garden News and MCN to win praise from judges for the team’s "impressive control of crossovers and a very consistent entry throughout".
