Maybe it was the excellent lift and detail on all those uncoated text sections. Or perhaps that dense black on monochrome imagery worked its magic. Whatever, since moving to Park in 2013, It’s Nice That agency has noted the improved quality in its quarterly title Printed Pages.

Magazine Printer Printer of the Year: Park Communications

The agency wanted to add value, improve quality and increase pagination but stick to the same budget. Park suggested a mixture of coated and uncoated to increase impact and embossing the cover to give a tactile look and feel while being more cost-effective than purchasing pre-textured paper. This is not a one-off. Park worked its wonders with better reproduction and binding for Wrap, a magazine on illustration and culture, and once again the plaudits came in. Judges agreed: “Inspirational entry and proof that magazines are very much alive and kicking.”

Magazines are changing. More companies are publishing single specialist titles, pushing boundaries on materials and processes. Take AA Files No 68, the iconic magazine for architects with a run of 4,000. It was as much the black covers and super-sleek foil blocking as the clean lines of architecture on the perfect pages that impressed architects and prompted one judge to comment: “An almost perfect portfolio that really blew me away.”
