Schroders plc is a British multinational asset management company with a heritage and culture based on over 200 years’ experience of investment markets.
To produce an annual report package under stringent time constraints, with technically challenging print production and complex mailing requirements. The publication ran to 5,500 copies with a 158 page text and four page cover; ancillary items included a Notice of Meeting, Forms of Direction and Proxy Cards. There was a detailed mailing matrix with a number of cells with varying inserts.
The project was carefully scheduled, working in close partnership with Addison, Schroders’ design agency. Addison selected Heaven 42 as the stock, which is extremely white with a very matt finish. Special mixes of vegetable oil-based inks were sourced and refined to achieve a close match to Schroders’ corporate colours when printed and sealed on the stock.
The images were wet proofed on machine using the silk curve from Park’s ISO 12647 colour profile. As the image control system saved the settings from the machine proofing, the make-ready and press pass were made all the easier. A complete ‘test pack’ of each mailing cell was then compiled and reviewed and, during the live mailing, samples from each were checked against the agreed test pack.
All elements of the project were produced successfully and delivered to schedule and budget.
“Working with Addison and Schroders on this annual report was a delight. The final results speak for themselves.”
Dan Nolan, Account Director, Park Communications
