Design team field day at St Austell Print Company
A team aren't a team until you have a jolly. And print designers aren't print designers unless we have good printers. Like any good agency we have guys we trust to do that really important bit for us. But, importantly, we also seek to learn as much as we can about all the processes that inform our designs. We want to make printers life easy, we want to make the files we provide a pleasure to work with and, of course, we want to get the best, dynamic, creative and tactile results.
St Austell Print Company have been trusted printers for us for many years, so we went up as a team to check out their machines, learn about different processes and simply see their side of the job. We all picked up different things from the day out which was great.
We also love the ergonomics of the machines. It’s hard to get your mind around the brain power it takes to engineer them. Some of the nicest machines are the older two colour process machines that are still in operation for certain jobs.
