This 2017 Gold Ink Awards entry, entered into the Digital Printing, Books category by Elanders USA in Acworth, Ga., was artfully created by Huge Inc., a global marketing and branding agency that specializes in connecting digital and physical touch points. What immediately grabbed my attention was the word "Coffee" on the cover, which was emphasized with the use of coating. The book was created as "an ode to coffee, food, culture and design," celebrating and highlighting the eclectic selection at Huge Inc.’s café.
Elanders USA printed 100 copies of the book on an HP Indigo 7600 digital press. The cover was printed on 80-lb. Classic Crest duplex cover, Epic Black, from Neenah Paper, and was also clear foil stamped on a Kluge press. The text was printed on 100-lb. Veritiv Endurance silk text. And, the the book was perfect bound on the printer’s Heidelberg Eurobind 1300D binder.
