It’s four in row for Trinity Mirror, which has made this category its own since 2011, thanks to punchy colour and adventurous technological advances.


Newspaper Printer of the Year: Trinity Mirror Printing (Watford)

Check out the form in the Racing Post for its Oaks Day Special Edition this June, for which the full-colour presses laid down colour for the silks on score cards. A fully colour-managed workflow using softproofing ensured accurate proofs calibrated to newsprint stock. The Daily Mirror remains the printer's core business with a nightly print order of around 500,000 copies. The 72pp, 6 June edition, including World Cup and puzzles sections, was produced on three presses running at 40,000 copies per hour to meet tight deadlines and helped to secure another scoop for Trinity Mirror – victory in this category thanks to what judges hailed as “bright, clear and consistent quality – a spot-on submission”.

In its own words Newbury is a “David among the Goliaths in coldset newspapers”. Forget the latest robotics or automation, it doesn’t have them. What it does boast is a solid platform of good manufacturing and a dedicated, excellent workforce. The weekly regionals it produces with variable web width for flexibility ensure titles such as the Brecon & Radnor Express continues, 125 years after it first hit the newsstand.
