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.

Tate St Ives

Pics9Oct09 001Calverts has been chosen to print and finish a catalogue for Tate St Ives, to accompany the exhibition 'The Dark Monarch - Magic and Modernity in British Art', which opens on 10th October. The exhibition will explore the influence of folklore, mysticism, mythology and the occult on the development of art in Britain over the last century.

Designed by Simon Josebury (Secondary Modern), the format is 230mm x 170mm portrait, 216pp plus cover and 8-page jacket, section sewn. Mono text folios will print on 115gsm Think White (50% recycled and FSC certified), with colour plates featuring works from the Tate and major loans from private and public collections, which will print on Maine Gloss 170gsm. Cover stock is Colourplan Vellum White 350gsm, wire embossed in the paper grain and spine orientation, and the jacket is on China White 135gsm.

We will be using Novavit Bio high performance inks, which are soya and linseed oil based and contain low levels of oxidising catalysts and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The exhibition and book take their title from the infamous 1962 book by artist and writer Sven Berlin. Focusing on the way the British landscape is encoded with various histories - geological, mythical and magical - they reveal how artists have used these ideas to express the anxieties, trauma and instability of a turbulent and uncertain world.

The Dark Monarch brings together over 160 works, as well as books, manuscripts and other ephemera, by artists active throughout the twentieth century.
