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 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.

Comics

The Map To Your Heart

Map Pull Out

Last month we printed 'Show Me The Map To Your Heart & Other Stories', a comic book of short pieces by author and illustrator John Cei Douglas. Covering a wide range of topics from nostalgic coming of age tales to long distance relationships, coping with mental health problems and the childlike wonder of exploring fantasy worlds, it's a real collector's piece.


The title comes from John's main MA Illustration project at Camberwell. Stephen Holland said it contained "four of the finest pages ever in comics”. Printing in two colours including a pantone on the cover, and printed on Munken Pure FSC© certified stock on our Heidelberg 74F litho press using Bio vegetable oil based inks, the book also comes with an eight page foldout map section.

 

It's available from publishers Great Beast, as well as comic shops like Gosh, and Page 45.

 

If you're a new or established illustrator or storyteller, and would like to know more about producing a beautiful book, we can help you make it happen.
