Scanplus Creates Large Printed Banner for Yoga Event in Ibiza

We understand that sometimes our client’s need for print can come last minute. As such we always endeavour to meet deadlines and tight turnaround times. This particular project had to be produced and delivered to Ibiza in Spain within 48 hours.

YogaFit are a family run business based in Ibiza. The founders aim to share their passion for wellbeing in mind and body for as many people as possible with their retreats. Living the dream, the positive impact they have on people’s lives is incredibly rewarding.

Scanplus were asked to create two pull-up banners to appear at a yoga event for 400 people in a luxury beachside hotel on the island. The banners had to be bright and welcoming for guests, delivered in large format and fitting the rest of the event’s design. Have a look at what we produced below.

Scanplus Creates Miniature Pocket Booklet for Auditory Verbal

Printed booklets and leaflets can be a great way for brands to promote what they offer as part of their marketing efforts. We recently worked with Auditory Verbal on a booklet to showcase the great work they do in helping hearing impaired children.

Auditory Verbal’s vision is to see a world where all deaf children have the same opportunities in life as hearing children. Founded in 2003 their Founding Director Jacqueline Stokes brought auditory verbal therapy to the UK after training in Canada and seeing what could be achieved for deaf children. Find out more about them on their website.

Some organisational statistics:

  • They have supported over 150 families in the last year
  • Achieved age-appropriate language for 80% of children who spent two years on their programme
  • Delivered subsidised access to the programme for families
  • Shared expertise with over 1,000 professionals working in the field

And much more.

The final brand leaflet we produced was a miniature pocket booklet that had to convey a lot of information whilst being bright and fun. See what we came up with above.

Scanplus Creates Event Invitations for Don Julio

Don Julio took advantage of our printed event invitations for their renowned Day of the Dead Party in London. After consulting with their team we decided that you can’t beat the classic combination of white foil on a coloured card for a stand out event invitation.

It was a pleasure working with this world renowned drinks brand. Have a look at the finished invitation above.

Ours must have got lost in the post!

Case Study: Whitgift School

We were delighted to work with Whitgift School in the production of their ’25 Years of Whitgift Sport’ book which celebrated their remarkable history between 1991 to 2016. They marked the anniversary with an evening at the Ritz Hotel in London to share success stories and thank individuals responsible in driving the sporting focus forward.

Working with the sporting ethos ‘From Foundation to Excellence. From Playground to Podium’ combined with a £10m investment and Sports Centre in 2005 it is not surprising to see the list of outstanding sportsmen the school has developed in this time.

The book outlines not only team achievements but also features the story of individuals such as Joseph Choong (Team GB pentathlete in Rio 2016), Danny Cipriani and Elliot Daly (England Rugby Internationals), Victor Moses (Chelsea and Nigeria Football International), Lawrence Okoye (Team GB Discuss at London 2012) and Jason Roy (England Cricket International) to name just a few.

Case Study: Gregor McGuckin

Scanplus were privileged to produce a high quality sponsorship brochure for sportsman Gregor McGuckin who intends to compete in the Golden Globe Race 2018. An auspicious year, 2018 marks 50 years since the first ever person managed to achieve the feat of sailing solo, non-stop around the world in what was the original Golden Globe Race. In 1968, nine boats left the UK in a race to make history. Only one boat, skippered by Sir Robin Knox Johnston, made it to the finish line.

Fifty years on, the 2018 edition of this legendary race limits technology to what was available in the 1960’s. This means the competitors will have to navigate with a compass and sextant, using the stars and sun to pinpoint their position and harvesting rainwater in order to survive. It’s not a race for the fainthearted and will test competitors to their limits.

We are all hugely impressed with Gregor and confident that his determination, enthusiasm, ambition and immense skill will see him successfully through to the finish line.

You can chart his progress at and

Good luck Gregor!

The technical brief for this brochure was as follows:

Finished size: A4 Landscape.
Cover: 4 pages on Novatech Digital Silk FSC 300gsm.
Text: 20 pages on Novatech Digital Silk 150gsm.
Print in full colour throughout.
Fold, stitch, trim.
Turnaround time: 24 hours.
Scanplus used our expertise in print marketing to ensure the final brochure produced was not only of a high quality, but designed throughout to make it accessible and uncomplicated for individuals wishing to donate to Gregor. See a picture of the final product below.

Case Study: Leading University

Scanplus completed a print campaign for a leading University under the University of London specialising in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East. The scholars of this University grapple with pressing issues – democracy, development and much more that confront two-thirds of humankind whilst remaining guardians of specialised knowledge in languages, periods and regions not available anywhere else in the UK. This makes the establishment synonymous with intellectual enquiry and achievement. It is a global academic base and a crucial resource for London.

The University was established 100 years ago with the anniversary celebrations being held in 2016 and Scanplus were commissioned to produce an Alumni magazine which reflected the centenary. The publication was mailed worldwide to their Alumni database of 25,000.

Our technical brief was as follows:

Gold foil on the front cover to incorporate the number 100
Completely redesigned mailing pack to include a carrier sheet and donation form
Print donation form to increased response rates
Production of full colour proofs
10 days from proof sign off to print cover and text pages
Personalisation and enclosing into clear polywrap along and carrier sheet, reply envelope and additional insert
Merge and mailsort of 5x datafiles to ensure most economical postage rates
Suppression check and clean up of data
Data cleanse resulted in reduction of non delivered packs and 17% savings on postal costs. Donations increased by 6% on the previous year. The client was absolutely delighted with the outcome of the Centenary publication and mailing which resulted in Scanplus gaining a further 6 appeal mailings to print and mail during the upcoming months.
