Colorplan, Duplexing, Foil Blocking
This week’s blog features some stunning tags.

I often talk about the close relationship we have with GF Smith and the wonderful stocks used on a daily basis. On this particular project the Colorplan White Frost Gravure embossed is without doubt one of my favourite stocks. Colorplan is available in over 50 shades and can be produced with 25 different embossings.

It is created at James Cropper Paper Mill, based in Kendal in the Lake District. With sustainability at its’ very core this multi award winning paper manufacturer is certainly a supplier we are proud to be aligned with.

digital print, Letterpress
This week’s blog features old and new machinery to create a beautiful invite. The vibrant colours are achieved digitally on our HP Indigo 7900 with the black text being printed traditionally using the letterpress technique on our vintage Heidelberg. The 450gsm Gmund Cotton Max White used on this project is from GF Smith its 100% cotton as the name suggests and leaves the most fabulous indentation when combined with letterpress printing. To see some of our splendid work, discuss a project or for more information contact one of the friendly team at Century Studios.

Duplexing, Foil Blocking, Letterpress
This weeks blog features some rather luxurious business cards. These particular cards feature two of my favourite techniques, with gold foil onto GF Smith’s Colorplan Ebony and crisp black ink letterpressed on White Frost I think this is a winning combination. To see some of our splendid work, discuss a project or for more information contact one of the friendly team at Century Studios.

Foil Blocking, White Ink, Wire Stitching
This weeks blog features a wonderful trio of processes to create something rather beautiful. The wonderfully rich black cover is the one and only Colorplan Ebony from GF Smith, five layers of glorious white ink are then applied using our HP Indigo 7900. From here the cover moves onto our Heidelberg to be hot foiled in rose gold 6037 from the Foilco range, the finishing touch is the rose gold wire used to bind the book together.

Foil Blocking, litho print
This weeks blog features some rather dazzling books. Production time was of the essence with this project with only seven days to produce three thousands books in total. This would have been quite straight forward had it not be hot foiled in holographic gold 210F00 from the Foilco range onto GF Smith’s Colorpan Ebony. The team at Century HQ pulled out all of the stops to enable us to deliver another exceptional project on time.

Foil Blocking, Triplexing
For those of you that read our blog, you are probably well aware that we like a challenge here at Century HQ!! So when this project landed in my inbox, I was rather excited. Printed using our HP Indigo 7900 onto Colorplan White Frost from the GF Smith range, before being triplexed with Colorplan Scarlet and foiled in 6210 & 6748 from the Foilco range. With overlapping foil it proved tricky but successful with both client and end user being thrilled with the final results.
