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.

Arts

British Museum

ROP

When the British Museum wanted to produce a programme of the upcoming Revolution on Paper exhibition they approached Calverts. The brief - to achieve a critical colour match on the cover image, an original Diego Rivera print from 1932 and with a mix of pre-press wizardry, unbleached recycled paper + a bit of old-fashioned press passing we got finally got there. Or rather we will do, it’s still whizzing through the press at 10,000 sheets an hour.
 

Mexican printmaking flourished in the early part of the twentieth century, following the country’s first socialist revolution. The strong left-wing government which emerged emphasised art as a way of promoting revolutionary values which led to a pioneering programme to cover the walls of public buildings with vast murals, and later to setting up print workshops to produce works for mass distribution and education.
 

The British Museum’s Revolution on Paper exhibition will be the first in Europe focusing on the great age of Mexican printmaking in the first half of the twentieth century. The exhibition runs from 22 October – 5 April 2010. Admission free.
