Book Printer of the Year (Academic and Trade): Replika Press

By 02 Nov 2017

The master printer Replika Press has proven its mettle yet again. No wonder it has already been a five-time winner of the Post-Press Company of the Year. This year too, Replika’s four samples are a testimonial to the fact that a quality book printer can add value to a publisher’s vision of a perfect book.

The cover is 250gsm one side coated art card with matte lamination and four-colour printing. Replika produced 5,000 copies of this section-sewn paperback book.
