Report & Accounts Printer of the Year: Empress Litho

“Who would have thought accountants would appreciate such beautifully presented print?” asked the judges after being comprehensively wowed by the quality and attention to detail displayed in the Empress entry. 020 8316 6648

More clients are embracing illustration-led design and exacting print for their reports and accounts. No exception are Howdens, Derwent, Informa and property company U+I, all of whom turned to the south-east London printer to shake up their spreadsheets. U+I is a photogenic business demanding high-quality imagery. And when it came to presenting its numbers, the client was no less demanding on aesthetics. All financials and figures came within a detachable 8pp cover and a cloth-lined book block. That block was section sewn and bound into white buckram-style cloth, while magazine-style front sections meant the smart money had to be on Empress Litho for a win.

Highly commended

“Burberry and Schroders were outstanding examples of how uncoated paper should be printed,” said judges. The heavy Burberry envelope and cover gave a luxury feel to the report. Choice of a 100% recycled paper will not only have won green brownie points but also clean, bright, smooth surfaces. Schroders’ report was completed on a tight budget, yet use of creative papers, die-cutting and foiling ensured lavish impact.
