our approach

Why work with Calverts?


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 investing in 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.




Standards & certification

Design and print affect the environment. Calverts has therefore implemented an environmental management system to the requirements of ISO 14001 to reduce our negative environmental impacts.

We are committed to comply with or exceed the requirements of environmental legislation and other environmental initiatives to which we subscribe. We are also committed to the prevention of pollution and continual improvement.

Our objectives are to:

1) Reduce our carbon emissions

2) Reduce the impact of paper use on natural resources

3) Improve resource efficiency and recycling

We have set up programmes to achieve this with targets and time scales.

National Stationery Week

Next week is National Stationery Week, a campaign encouraging people to write or print on paper rather than on a screen.

A lot of the promotion around the campaign will be online (including this post), which is sort of ironic but nonetheless made me think of which samples from our print archive could best represent stationery - the tissue-like touch of Conqueror Cotton Connoisseur? Vineyard letterheads made from recycled grape pulp? Mermaid calling cards printed on seaweed paper?

I couldn't decide, so instead, to celebrate National Stationery Week here is an interesting letter from 1969, and every designer's perfect design brief:

For their album, Sticky Fingers, The Rolling Stones asked Andy Warhol to design a sleeve featuring a workable zip.

Jagger politely warns the the artist of production difficulties associated with complex sleeve design, advice that was then completely ignored by Warhol, who instead produced a cover that caused all manner of problems, including scratched copies of the record itself.

(Letter from Mick Jagger to Andy Warhol, dated April 21, 1969: Collection of The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; Reproduced with the permission of Mick Jagger.)
