Calverts North Star Press

Calverts has worked in three different London locations over 40 years - Clerkenwell from 1977 to 85, Shoreditch until 2001, and now Bethnal Green.

We specialise in branding, content, web, publications and sustainable print for corporate,  government and arts organisations such as the British Museum, Tate, Arup, 3i and the Royal College of Art. We are also London's leading art printers, working with students, gallerists, artists and the wider design community.

Calverts is a workers' co-operative. The co-op was founded in 1977 by ex-employees of IRAT Services (Institute for Research in Arts and Technology).

The firm's assets are owned in common. Members paid equally and participate in our management. Our trading surplus are reinvested in the co-operative or used for community aims.

Co-op Love

"We have never found a supplier so communicative and willing to work in a collaborative way to get the best possible result.
They really understand the environmental and social impact of all the processes they use, and are good at helping us find the most economical and sustainable way to produce work.”
Nat Hunter, Airside

"Calverts are the creative team I'd pick anytime, out of all the agencies I worked with. They have the skill of actually listening to a client and offering practical, high-quality solutions which somehow always fit in with deadlines.”
Suzanne Kendler, CFDG
