Brochure Printer of the Year: Hampton Printing (Bristol)
Monday, October 21, 2019
Judges awarded Hampton “10 out of 10” for all its samples, but they were particularly impressed by the work the company produced for car manufacturers Range Rover and Bentley.
For the former, Hampton produced 3,800 copies of a large luxury brochure in more than 13 different languages. The luxurious case-bound brochure was inserted into a printed and spot UV varnished ‘pizza style’ box and then into a double wall mailing carton for distribution to the car firm’s customers globally. Equally as impressive was the handover brochure produced to accompany Bentley’s Continental GT Number 9 Edition car. Hampton had to commission a bespoke green ink to recreate the paint colour of the limited edition car. As the judges noted, the company paid “outstanding attention to detail and finishing across every submission”.
Kingsbury was tasked with producing an opulent marketing book for a London penthouse with a potential price tag of more than £50m. It rose to the challenge using Fedrigoni’s Symbol Matt Plus 200gsm for the text pages - textured foil was also cleverly used to depict buildings. The book was gilt edged on the company’s Ochsner machine. Judges said Kingsbury’s submission was “simply stunning” and contained “really well executed products - hats off!”
The judges described the Pureprint entry as being “amazingly consistent”, displaying nothing short of “beautiful finishing and attention to detail that oozed very high quality throughout”. However, singled out for particular praise were the projects for Lancer Square, which boasted a fabric cover and TwentyTwo, which one judge said was one of the most eye-catching brochures submitted in this hotly contested category.
