our approach

Why work with Calverts?

print

Print buyers come to Calverts for four main reasons - our creativity, quality, expert advice and track record in sustainable printing. 

We have proper conversations with our clients, to help them realise their print ambitions - from fairtrade teaching tools and low carbon travel guides to art and science comics and high end books. There's almost no print idea we can't turn into reality.

We have a hard-earned reputation as 'green' printers. We're always investing, learning and sharing what we know about every aspect of low environmental impact communications.

And Calverts worker co-operative business model means we're able to improve continuously, by putting our money into state-of-the art repro and printing hardware, software and training - instead of paying dividends to outside owners and shareholders.

All this adds up to higher quality, higher impact print; timely delivery - and a better print experience.
      

Get in touch and we'll help you print something beautiful.

Books

Is there a book in you?

If you've been thinking about a book project, Calverts is the place to make it reality in 2015.

We're well known for producing innovative and beautiful publications on budget and on time. Did you know that Calverts can also share its wealth of knowledge about formats - electronic and print; about financing models, including self-financing and crowdfunding; about distribution and marketing?

 

Calverts has been  producing remarkable print, designs and publications for over 30 years, for authors, customers and clients in fine and applied arts, business, government, education, the third sector and the local community. If you have a book project, small or large, simple or ambitious, we can help you get it out there. We'll share everything we know, and that's a great deal. We can contribute exactly what's needed in terms of advice, design and technical know how, and general hand holding.

 

Drop us a line today, to find out more about getting your book out there before another year passes.

 

The book featured above is 'Words that Mobilise', designed and printed for our Calverts colleague Oz in June 21014, under her Gutter Press imprint. It's a book of poetry, about the ordinary and the less ordinary.
