The Myscape – Weave brochure for Mysore Developers, with a run-length of 100, features laser-cutting on the cover. Printed on 220-gsm and 300-gsm Conqueror wove high white in CMYK plus blue, other post-press features include silver foiling, and back-to-back pasting.

For The Absoluto – Finer Side of Fashion for KBS International, with a run-length of 2,000, all the images were colour-corrected to match fabric swatches. Printed on 170-gsm matt art paper, post-press features of the sample include section-sewing, hardcase binding, gold foiling, embossing and raised-UV for the sherwani on the cover.

For Lioli catalogue for Lioli Ceramica, with a run-length of 5,000, all the tiles were colour-matched to original samples. It was a challenge as many of the tiles have neutral colours.

The cover with semi-matt varnish offers a good contrast to the black Curious paper.

The special feature of the Vaarivana brochure for Flagship Advertising, with a run-length of 500, is the stepped semi-circular die-cutting on the open spine. The opening on the sleeve showcases this feature. The outer case has deep debossing.

The shortlisted companies in this category were:

  • Kaagaz Press
  • Progressive Printing Press (Unit Of HKS Offset )
