“Posters are coming back into fashion again,” insists last year’s finalist who went one better this year using a cold-foil process and bold contrasting colours for a job for GB Eye. “Now the gift and stationery stores can’t get enough of them,” and a look at the quality from Windles Group suggests why.
Another creative twist on the norm for posters is the use of a 280gsm board, rather than more standard lighter weight papers. Windles Group delivered again for ‘Form’ by The Art File. Manufacturing demands of these greetings cards were formidably high, especially the need for extremely precise die-cuts, with no room for error. Reprints were required within weeks. The judges had two words for Windles Group: “Stunning precision.”

Judges raved about the Pop’n’Rock-Swing cards, which tested the Nottingham printer’s technical capabilities. But client Santoro Graphics needn’t have worried – it has a smash hit on its hands. A few nifty moves later and the dynamic 3D interactive cards are now sold in over 45 countries. Judges praised the “excellent attention to detail and a real knock-out entry. Amazingly fine tolerances on cutting”.
