Entries were “quite simply stunning, impressively punchy in print and varnishing”, helping last year’s commended company become this year’s outright winner. Nokia Siemens Network annual report is a step-by-step essay in brilliance, from the comprehensive digital proofing methodology and bound book proofs at pre-press stage, to the intricate matt tints and cover work on a litho coating press. Post-press perfection included folding, gloss lamination of the cover and three-knife trimming. It was a similar story for the Compass and Hiscox annual reports, while the Uckfield printer went to town on the API Group’s 78pp annual report. Some pages were printed four colour plus a Pantone spot colour, while others were printed black plus a Pantone spot. The cover, screen printed in white on 350gsm Colorplan Cobalt Blue, was one of many finishing touches that led judges to conclude: “This is unquestionably the clear winner in this category; the quality of each sample supplied shone through.”
