Hannah & Al – Save the Date

We had the pleasure of working alongside talented designer Alex Farrall to create these great wedding invitations.

Alex came to us with his artwork and the idea of working on a recycled craft stock, after some consideration we advised that this particular stock may be problematic when printing due to the nature of the artwork (with fine vector illustrations in such a large print area). We explored some more options and Alex settled on a much better alternative. Though we always give customers the freedom to have their prints as they like, we strive to give the best possible advice and options to create an absolute premium quality print on every job.

We were delighted to be asked by Alan at Paperback to print the new Cairn swatch. We use Paperback papers on a regular basis. All their products are 100% recycled, offering our designers and customers many colours, finishes and weights to explore. We worked alongside Paperback’s designer advising on adapting their design to suit the processes to be used, truly showing the range of processes on Cairn products. Cairn is perfect for letterpress, blind deboss and hot foil creating a stunning tactile letterpress print.

The London Distillery Company have collaborated with Fortnum & Mason to create a new limited edition Dodd’s Gin. Botanical inspiration for the gin comes from Fortnum & Mason’s rooftop bees and is carried through to the colour schemes and golden hot foil.

The labels are designed by United Creatives and are a reworking of their label for the original Dodd’s Gin bottles. The labels were letterpress printed in three colours on our Heidelberg platens followed with a metallic hotfoil. They were then kiss cut to allow them to be easily peeled off, hand numbered and applied the bottles. Printing such an intricate design with no trapping takes great care and attention to detail at each stage of the production.

The gin is available to purchase online from Fortnum & Mason but be quick as only 300 bottles have been produced!
