In late August, we visited Hemlock Printers for press check on behalf of Clerestory Magazine. After working closely on this publication for eight months, it was truly rewarding to see it finally translate from screen to print. It has been awhile since we stepped on the printing floor but seeing all the work that goes into making a printed book always makes us appreciate the process even more. Many of the staff who managed the printing of our project has been at Hemlock or in the print industry for more than 20+ years. Their experience is invaluable and it was interesting to hear their perspective on passing that knowledge on to a next generation to carry the printing industry forward. A special thanks to our account manager, Paul Verrall who was instrumental to the project, walking us through the process from the conception of this magazine to the finish line.
Our design for the inaugural issue of Clerestory Magazine includes two cover options, all printed on Domtar Lynx. We’ll be sharing more photos from this project in the coming weeks.
