Morgan Sindall Group is a leading UK construction and regeneration group.
The Morgan Sindall Annual Report is used as a key marketing tool to communicate their strategy to stakeholders. The report had to be printed to a very high standard in order to communicate their strong platform created for future growth. Our strategy was to support MerchantCantos and Morgan Sindall with high production values and enable them to take benefit from a design feature not initially within budget.
The initial estimate enquiry requested the extra cost for a 6 page cover. The cost of moving from a 4 page to a 6 page cover broke the budget. We therefore suggested changing the stock to our house stock, which we could offer at a more competitive rate. The saving was sufficient to cover the extra cost.
We worked collaboratively with MerchantCantos to ensure that the artwork for the 6 page cover and text gatefold throw-out were prepared correctly. We provided the sizes for the flaps, to ensure they would work throughout the production process.
A 200# screen, and plate profiles specially developed for coated materials, were used for the production.
Proofing included machine scatterproofs, high resolution Epson’s run to FOGRA standards, and Indigo book proofs x 6.
To maximise colour consistency, we adhered to ISO12647 colour management targets. We accurately matched the signed off proofs while our Colour Manager and the customer passed on press.
Print production and binding for the Morgan Sindall Annual Report were completed in-house, while a member of the production team supervised the matt lamination, cover creasing and glue dot application at the outworkers.
