Hot off the press, the Royal Academy Schools Show 2009 catalogue Designed by Fraser Muggeridge Studio and printed at Calverts.
Printed on traditional high white laid paper, with graphic sections on Challenger Matt Coated and cover on 300gsm Challenger White Uncoated board, this was a challenging piece of reprographics and print for a meticulous client. Combining fine line, typographic, colour halftone and full out solids, the book was produced in an edition of 2,500.
It’s been a busy June for London’s art and design schools, and therefore for Calverts print team, as they prepare for summer shows. Last week, we printed and bound the catalogue for the Kingston Fashion BA graduates, who will be showing as part of Graduate Fashion Week. The Kingston book was designed and printed in an A5 landscape format on Emerald FSC matt/silk coated, 100% recycled paper. Emerald is an exclusive Paperback product, a true aesthetic recycled (in other words, it’s made from true deinked post-consumer waste, so it looks and feels recycled – it’s not trying to pretend it’s virgin fibre.) The inner pages were printed CMYK and sealer with our high performance Bio (linseed and soya oil) based litho inks; the covers on 2000 micron greyboard, also 100% recycled, with the titling printed as matt white hot foil – the technique chosen by the RCA for their summer show catalogue and invitations last year. Very stylish indeed; contact us for samples.
