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 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.

Education

Spot fluorescent

Central St Martins Undergraduate poster detail Central St Martins Undergraduate poster

Following on from our recent post regarding spot colour printing, the latest prospectus for Central St Martin under-graduate courses highlights another issue to consider when litho printing spot colours. Namely, what happens when you overprint with fluorescent spot colours?

Most lithographic inks are semi-transparent. However, metallic and fluorescent litho inks are semi-opaque.

You can see the effect this has on the images above where a fluorescent yellow overprints a spot colour red (in the bicycle, for example) . There is a distinct change in the overprinted image. Because yellow is a relatively light colour the change isn't too extreme. It would be more noticeable if the fluorescent colour was darker, or if a metallic gold or silver ink was used instead.

If you're thinking of overprinting using spot colour fluorescents or metallics, and you're based in London, you would be very welcome to come in to Calverts and see some samples.
