Last year judges praised runner-up Pureprint for its excellent production values. This year the printer went further, with brilliant colour and finishes across all samples. “They really know how to make reports and accounts interesting – no mean feat,” concluded this year’s judges.
What made the 1,535 glossy copies of the BBA Aviation Annual Report take off, for example, was not just the comprehensive proofing methodology or the four-colour cover with seal, gloss lamination and foil blocking, or the cool grey text pages with spot-gloss varnish. It was the careful selection of papers to achieve a seamless run and the ability to meet a tight deadlines – from start to finish in just one week. Proof that with the right preparation fantastic results can quickly follow.

Property company Derwent is known for its willingness to embrace bold and challenging projects. Empress Litho delivered a report that opened easily and lay flat to reveal perfect colour balances and exceptional, brilliantly white Fedrigoni X-Per. “Consistent high standards across all the samples, really impressive.” said judges of reports, also for Howdens, PPHE and U&I. Print for the latter, a regeneration company, involved a detachable cover that acted as a quick reference guide: clever.
