Maverick Arts and Publishing

Client

A Sussex based young, fun and funky publisher of humorous calendars, greetings cards and children’s books. All of the funny animal images are created by Paul Cocken, who is probably one of the very best photo retouchers working today. Whether it is swimming guinea pigs or a wind surfing meerkat there’s something for everyone… we love printing them too!

Brief

Having worked with Steve [owner of Maverick Arts] from the beginning we already had a great understanding of his requirements. These cards are for the retail industry so they must exude a quality of a similar ilk to that of its competitors. Alp Print recognised this important detail from the onset and have agreed suitable high quality materials that fit this requirement.

Solution

Printed sheetwork on a Ryobi 750 5 colour (including coater) in four colours on the outside only using vegetable oil based inks eco-friendly silk coating. A hefty 400gsm Regency Satin board is used.

The greeting cards are trimmed square and crease finished on our new Morgana AutoCreaser Pro 50, folded by hand and quality inspected throughout, boxed and delivered by our in house delivery team.

The studio handled the positioning of the FSC logo and created the unique bar code for each design and PDF proofed to the client for approval.
