Bringing Yorkshire Industrial Heritage to Life
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been busy producing a whole host of materials for the fantastic Ignite Yorkshire – a £1m National Lottery Heritage Fund supported project designed to encourage young people to take inspiration from, and connect with, the region’s industrial past to develop new skills for the future.
First of all, we produced a collection of stickers featuring Ignite’s distinctive logo in four bold colours, with the intricate design being kiss-cut to shape on a matt coated label stock.
We also produced two bespoke notebooks with 60pp of notes. The striking ‘you’re a poet & you don’t know it…’ notebook cover was printed with digital white and black ink onto Nomad Grey Rough from GF Smith Paper, with text pages on 100gsm Arcoprint EW from Fedrigoni.
The second, Ignite branded notebook also featured a Nomad Grey Rough cover, using white ink with full colour overlaid to make the colours pop, with plain note pages on 100gsm Arcoprint EW.
Finally, we produced the ‘Emergency Museum’ booklet, with the cover printed with white ink onto Colorplan Plain 270gsm Bright Red and the eight pages of text onto 140gsm Arcoprint EW – printed full colour throughout.
All of the booklets were finished with saddle-stitching and the notebooks with radius corners to the opening edge.
We’re delighted to have been involved in helping to develop these materials for the region’s young people. Yorkshire’s industrial heritage is a theme that’s close to our heart. Getting to work, hands-on, everyday with our print and finishing machinery and equipment, in the very heart of the York countryside, really does bring home how important our industrial heritage still is in today’s digital world.< Back to Blog
