Laminator & digital foil

We have recently installed a new laminator which also allows us to do an economical form of foil stamping called “sleeking”. This process is digital and avoids the need of a metal die. We’ll post more information about the process as we become familiar with the equipment.

2019 PINE Awards

We’re excited to have won two “Pinnacle” awards in last week’s Printing Industries of New England (PINE) yearly event. The categories and projects are:

Hardcover books: “Native Flora of Louisiana”
Printers self promotion: Puritan art & museum brochure

“Native Flora of Louisiana” also won the Best Use of Paper award. The judges wrote “The dust jacket and cover with the recessed work is so beautiful. It’s Smyth-sewn, case-bound and the silhouetting and the prep-work that went into this is really remarkable…. The book is over 400 pages and it’s executed flawlessly.”

We also won an Award of Recognition in the Product Catalog division and an Award of Merit in the Hardcover Book division.
