High-volume Magazine Printer of the Year: Wyndeham Roche

PrintWeek Team
Monday, October 22, 2018

This reconfigured category was won for the first time last year by this year’s winner. Once again Wyndeham Roche produced “a web offset printing masterclass”, according to the judges. Boat International magazine is produced on coated paper with high levels of ink coverage.

It required extremely skilled press minders to keep on top of such high-speed, wide web production, to avoid marking and blistering. The team in St Austell, Cornwall, also spun its magic for Love, Monocle and Harrods Magazine. The prestigious Harrods title called for close attention to colour matching. The magazine was a minefield of challenges such as fine type and pages with reversed-out text. These demanded high-definition reproduction, and were achieved on a tight turnaround in a high-volume production environment.

“Fantastic quality, which proves what is possible with lighter grades and gravure”. The judges were blown away not just by the Liverpool printer’s print and finishing quality, but the team’s ability to achieve complex colour balancing and fine tones when producing such stellar samples: Mail on Sunday’s You Magazine, The Sunday Times’ Style Magazine, Asda’s Good Living glossy and Daily Mail’s Weekend Magazine.
