WE Love Dust!

17 Dec

We are privileged people.

Those cool creative dudes at I Love Dust asked us to produce their iconic showcase book and here it is:

A beautiful A5 portrait piece with die cut slipcase.

We used Colorplan Ebony for the cover and slipcase, and Mohawk Options PC100 for the text.

Printed CMYK throughout, at 225lpi, the book portrays a stunningly vibrant reproduction of the amazing I Love Dust craft.

The cover has a very splendid skull graphic that we foiled in gloss black and metallic gold.

We have very limited samples that we would be pleased to show you, please get in touch if interested . . .

This really is a fantastic design piece – obviously supported by beautiful print.
That’s what we do you know!


Enviro News

Hello all

Sorry I havent been in touch for a while – hope all is well where you are!

New Plate System

I thought you’d like to know that we have just upgraded our plate system!  ‘zzzzzzzzzz’ I hear you cry!

We think it’s pretty good news as we are saving 550kwh Electricity, 90 ltrs of harmful waste chemicals and a wopping 8980 litres of water . . . and this  is just a monthly calculation.

The new Agfa plates are still able to hold a 1% 300lpi dot too so quality is, as always, the dog’s doodahs!

Do you use 9 Lives?

A New Enviromental Benefit Statement has just been launched by Arjowiggins Papers and PaperCo.  (I can see the ‘zzzzzzzzz’s’ again!)  It’s a very factual and possibly a more meaningful statement than the various symbols available and you can print onto jobs using any of the 9 Lives range. See below:

We print a fair bit of work on 9 Lives so obviously we will be happy to help with the statement creation should you want to use something like this. It doesnt cost anything and could look really great on Annual Reports etc.

It would be great to get your feed-back on this please – is this something that is important to you/your clients? Please do let me know.

COURSE is fine!!??!!

27 Jan

Fine screen litho is great but a really nice design feature, for the right project,  is to use course screens . . . .

As you are probably aware,  ‘The Way of Dayfold’  (TWoD!!) is printing at much higher screens than the standard (it’s a historical, fine art thang!). This finer screen process gives fantastic results and produces more clarity and detail than the norm . . . got to be a good thing eh??

However, printing with courser screens can also give nice results.

War on Want Annual review front

This is a job that has been printed at 85lpi  YES 85!!!!! its almost like printing with p’taters!!

The nature of this job really lent itself to printing this way.

As you would expect, it’ printed on an uncoated stock . . . 9 Lives Offset – 100% PCW recycled – PaperCo

CMYK throughout. A5 format, 20pp.

The use of different screen resolutions could help ‘add’ to a project . . . the shots here don’t show the ‘courseness’  in its best light –  if you would like to see a real copy of this or other course screen projects, or even examples of ‘TWoD’, please let us know. (chris@dayfold.com)  TTFN!!
