Annual Reports


Annual  Reports

How you print and present your Annual Report is of high importance and the paper you use can help to reflect exactly the right image for your company.

Things to keep in mind:

  •   Will you produce your Annual Report using conventional print methods or on a digital press?
  •  Digital methods allow you to personalise each copy, adding even more value to the information you are sending to share holders.
  •  The paper(s) you use inside may be different to the ones you use for the cover, so you need to decide if they should match or be contrasting.
  •  If contrasting, you need to make sure they work well together and give the desired look and finish to the Report you are creating.
  •  Take into account any special print finishes you may want to incorporate. These include embossing, thermography, foil blocking, varnishing and die cutting.
  •  Although these may add cost they will also help to reflect the importance of the document you are producing.
  •  How are you going to distribute your Annual Report? If you are planning to send it by post, decide if you are using window envelopes or labels to address them and, don't forget, that size, thickness and weight will impact on the cost of postage.
  •  Are environmental credentials important? If so, there are a variety of paper options to help you meet this need.
  • The Look

    The vibrancy of colours, feel and tactility of your Annual Report will impact on the paper(s) to use – choosing the right one will help create the brochure you desire.

  • Digital Print

    Papers for digital print are becoming more widely available. However, if you are using HP Indigo machines the papers you use will need to have a special coating. It is always safer to check if the paper(s) you are proposing to use is certified for these machines. Ask our sales desk if you are unsure about anything - they are always pleased to help.

  • Full Colour Images

    Glossy papers are best for printing full colour images, but it may be better to use a modern, uncoated paper, as this will help when reading the text. Their qualities will also help to give high quality reproduction of images.

  • Envelopes 

    These are important as they will be the first thing your investors will see when receiving your latest Annual Report. Don’t forget to make sure it will fit the envelope sizes available. A large selection of envelopes is available to match and complement these papers.
